Procurement on a very basic level can be of 2 types; either purchase of raw material or services provided. To talk in Oracle terminology it can be of destination type 'inventory' or 'expense'. The behavior or method followed in both cases is completely different in Oracle. Whenever we have an expense Purchase Order (referred to as PO further) raised against a project, Oracle Project Costing modules comes into picture. However this modules does not allow processing of inventory POs against project which is a standard functionality provided by Oracle. This is where PJM has a critical role to play.

Manav Anand, EPM Consultant

FDMEE stands for Financial Data Quality Management, Enterprise Edition, introduced in the latest EPM release, 11.1.2.3. It is the latest version of Oracle's Financial Data Quality Management.  It is a data integration tool majorly used for integrating financial data. 

It is one of the favorite tools for business users and administrators because of its user friendly web interface and audit capabilities.

Guest Post by
Nitin Dafade, Senior Associate Consultant, Infosys Limited

Aam Aadmi Party or we can say 'Mango Peoples Party' was able to make big dent in the Indian Politics at New Delhi with their totally new approach of reaching people with their strategy against corruption and it all started with the 'India Against Corruption' Campaign which was floated through Social Media like Facebook, Twitter etc.  IAC (India Against Corruption) was able to generate massive youth support for agitation through their campaign via social media and after the formation of the AAP party also social media was used as one of the major campaigning and communication tool, which was very much successful as evident from the recent Delhi Election result. 

This re-in-forces the power of social media and companies now have to rethink about their CXM strategy to communicate and connect with the segment of the people who are connected via social media and wanted to share their views.

Time after time Financial Institutions have to bring in new products or services to sustain and grow.
