  21. 21. Additional FCCS features • Forms • “Start Expanded” for hierarchies • Validation rules • Business rule execution options • Journal attachments upon submission • Copy / Clear data includes journal details and not just base data
  22. 22. Additional FCCS features • User Defined Attributes more extensible than UD fields (not limited to 3) • Dashboards go beyond FR or Grid/Form charts – and easy to design/update • Activity Reports - usage tracking • All reports are in one place (FR, I/C, Journal) • All forms are in one place (Data, Supplemental) • Customization of Navigation Flows • Unified Business Processes (with other services)
  23. 23. Wishful thinking • It would be great to have more than one thing open at a time, e.g. forms • Tabbed interface introduced in HFM 11.1.2.2 allowed for this • Ability to add Dimension Management card • Right now buried under Application / Dimensions / Edit • Drill into descendants of shared members • This is a Planning/Essbase limitation • Logging of Business Rule changes • Only execution/deployment is currently logged
  24. 24. Evaluation Considerations • Revisit your requirements – take a fresh look • Review what you are doing in your application today • See what you might gain from additional functionality • Determine how much data and functionality from your existing application is essential to retain • Match your revised requirements with the functionality available • Proof of Concept (POC) approach may assist you in your evaluation process
  25. 25. Implementation Steps • Confirm requirements • Design phase consists of determining: • Out of box functionality to leverage • Equivalent HFM functionality • Additional functionality • Custom functionality to build • Remap, convert, and tie out data • Some integration elements (e.g. mapping) can be reused • Reconciliation time can be lessened by porting over fewer time periods
