Oracle HCM Cloud Localization features/capabilities - HCM Cloud Service

Hi,Greetings!! Is there an Oracle document summarizing list of features / capabilities / functionality available for different countries in the Oracle HCM Cloud (Global HR, Compensation, Payroll) Space.For e.g. Global & Local Names, Address Styles, pre-defined Legal Jurisdictions if any etc.What else?  Please share any kind of document available?Specific localization for UK, Canada China. Thanking in anticipation!!! Regards,Bharat

In Oracle Support there are several documents with specific information for country localizations e.g. US, Switzerland, UK. There is a white papers support note and if i recall correctly, the localization white papers are listed there. You will need to have an active Oracle Support account to access this information. ThanksJohn


Query to extract LE list from fusion tables

Can someone please help me in sharing the query or procedure to extract the list of LE available from fusion tables.
Unfortunately, OTBI analytics are out of scope for this class, we will be offering a course in R11 called Oracle HCM Cloud: Reporting and Analytics Ed 1, it should be available as a recording sometime in September or early October. That class will teach you how to create an analytic, but won't specifically address how to extract LE (or any work structure lists) you would need to learn the tool then study the subject areas available to determine how to write the report you (or your client needs).  If you are working with a client that has access to Apps Connect (client password protected Cloud help site) there are lists of example analytics there that can b e potentially leverage. If you need to learn how to create an extract in HCM Extract you can reference the White Papers on extract on My Oracle Support (you are client needs an account to access this as well). Oracle Support Document 1504483.1 (All White Papers for Fusion Applications HCM ) can be found at: Outside of the tools above, you can see a complete list of all the Legal Entities that have been created by navigating to the following: Navigator>>Workforce Structures>>Manage Legal Entity HCM Information. Once on the page, click on Advanced Search, and then in the Name field change the operator to Does Not Contain and enter XX in the field. If you blank out the Legal Employer and Payroll Statutory Unit you will get a list of all that you have created or that you imported via one of the Import Tools. We don't provide a way to extract the list directly from the search results but you can view what have been created.

Supporting Applications Using HCM Cloud

Hi -I am looking for some feedback from current 'Live' HCM Cloud Application Managers, Support staff, etc... Specifically, how are folks adjusting their "IT" (vs business SME's) support teams (or not) to support HCM applications in the Cloud vs. the more traditional On-Prem EBS, PeopleSoft, etc...? More and more system components are becoming "configuration" and drawing the line on what to allow (control) the business SME's to maintain, troubleshoot, support vs the IT Application support specialist.  Do most still utilize the by module thinking or multiple modules by IT Application Specialist (Provided they are multi-module skilled)?  or, are other support models evolving? Trying to scale the current team to the right size for our future HCM Cloud support model (12 months out). Any insight, suggestions are appreciated - welcome any off-line 1x1 discussions as well (pls contact me # my email below). Thank you in advance!Best Regards,Lou Gerny, EIS Systems Manager, Oracle Cloud | PeopleSoft ERP***Moderator action (Timo): removed private contact data as this is not alllowed here.***

Location of data center: country restriction preventing data storage outside country or region

Given the sensitivity of data and data exports, most countries are evolving their laws that stipulate that data should not leave the boundaries of the country/region. Given that most cloud apps have data centres only in the USA/Europe/Singapore (most only in the USA), servicing customers in other countries is being ruled out. Looking at a discussion as to how Cx Apps/Services are successfully implemented that adhere to the above specified rule. The discussion could also include other laws and requirements which are impediments to propagation of the cloud apps/services. E.g. Engagement cloud as per the E.g. Engagement cloud as per the KM Article : Geographically - Where are the Oracle On Demand Services Data Centers (Doc ID 1967155.1)Link:…  Specify : --Quote--The Engagement Engine and Click to Call services are hosted from Boston, MA and Seattle, WA.--unquote-- I believe DBCS does provide for a flavor of private cloud services that allows for the database to be hosted in the customer selected data centre, with Oracle Ops remotely managing the  database management. First question is - is this true ?  if yes, can the DBCS implemented database be used to drive the cloud apps ? RegardsSmaran Mobile:+919739981450

HCM Cloud Localizations European countries?

Does anyone know, if there is an overview with an updated list of Global Localizations for Oracle HCM Cloud? The available White Papers in the Knowledge-tab of MyOracleSupport, seem to be outdated. We would be especially interested in Europe localizations and requirements.The localization white paper for Germany for example contains documentation regarding Release 9, while now everyone is already transitioning to Release 13. Kind regards, Sjoerd

Best Practices for International Database Applications in the Cloud - CON8342 9/29/14 (Monday) 11:45 AM - Moscone North - 130Speaker: Sergiusz Wolicki Thanks to the internet, cloud applications serve customers from many countries from a single data center. Thus, for an application in the cloud, internationalization must be considered from the very beginning. In this session, Sergiusz will discuss how features available in Oracle Database can help solve main internationalization issues that need to be considered when designing applications, especially cloud applications. The session will cover the following topics: Basics of Unicode as the database character setRecommendations concerning the use of NCHAR (national character set) data typesTop issues associated with migrating an existing database to UnicodeUsing character length semantics and VARCHAR2(32K) feature to solve some of the above issuesTop issues associated with writing and migrating applications to Unicode, including what to look at in SQL, PL/SQL, and client-side codeStorage and processing of datetime values for multiple time zonesCollating (sorting) international textFormatting numeric and datetime values for outputInternationalization issues specific to Oracle Multitenant option The session length is 45 minutes, so there is not enough time to go into all details. However, Sergiusz will be available after the session and most of the exhibition time on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Database Migration Assistant for Unicode (DMU) booth (SLD-139) in the Oracle Database DEMOgrounds area to answer your detailed questions. 2. Near-Zero Downtime Unicode Migration with Oracle DMU and GoldenGate - CON7328 9/30/14 (Tuesday) 12 PM - Moscone North - 130Speaker: Weiran Zhang, Yoshi Baba Migrating databases from legacy character sets to Unicode is an essential step in enabling universal support of character data in any languages for database cloud applications. Keeping the migration downtime to a minimum without impacting ongoing business operations often presents a formidable challenge for large-scale enterprise production systems. In this session, we will illustrate how to leverage Oracle Database Migration Assistant for Unicode (DMU) and GoldenGate replication technology to achieve a near-zero downtime migration model. We will also survey the latest DMU features and best practices for migrating Oracle Database instances to Unicode under the multitenant architecture. This will be a joint presentation with GoldenGate development.3.
