Ever changing policies, regulations, controls and reporting requirements have forced organizations to design a complex accounting model with a lot of custom applications and manual interventions. Towards evolving into a better adaptive agile business function, finance operation faces a few challenges:

  • Garnering adaptability towards ever changing controls and audit compliances
  • Streamlining of multiple systems operating out of multiple geographies catering to different local and statutory requirements
  • Inculcating snap-of-the-finger decision making capabilities through predictive analysis of real-time data

Oracle Fusion Accounting Hub leverages the Oracle Fusion SLA capabilities to cater to these dynamic challenges through -

  • A Centralized integrated Accounting model for all sub ledger applications
  • An Exceptionally Robust accounting engine for any transactional attribute
  • Multidimensional representation of real-time accounting information

Maintenance of multiple financial applications usually involves formulation of complex custom handshakes which will require manual intervention at various levels for data cleansing and application sync up. This shoots up the overhead cost of the application.

Oracle Fusion Subledger is a very flexible accounting model for generating accounting entries which enables automated account generation for events defined from transactional attributes. Automated account generation helps in error reduction and keeps the system clean from bulky custom components and bad data. Oracle Fusion SLA uses the what-if analysis to validate the accounting rules created and can do that for all transaction that flows in from any external application.

Oracle Fusion SLA meets multiple financial reporting requirements, such as IFRS, U.S. GAAP, and local statutory requirements. Also Oracle Fusion SLA can store data effective rules for accounting events which helps in accommodating to changing accounting rules and standards.

Multidimensional representation of real-time accounting information
