Oracle’s Updates Cloud EPM Data Integration UI

Business Man Staring At Screens of Code

If you’ve been following Oracle’s monthly updates for Cloud EPM, then you are aware that they had previously announced that the Data Management user interface was slowly being replaced with the newer Oracle Data Integration screen (found under the Data Exchange tile). The move does not mean the deprecation of functionality overall, but rather an enhancement to the user experience overall. The Data Management UI is largely a tribute to the on-prem equivalents. And to be honest, looks just as antiquated… and boring. Yes, I know I can hear all of you long time Oracle EPM techies yelling… it works, why mess with it?!  But in response, I’ll say what I was once told by an old girlfriend …. looks matter. Or maybe a saying from the sports world is better fitting – “look good, feel good, play good”. Jokes aside, the newer interface is better and is much more intuitive for users in my opinion. And September’s Cloud update contains a few key items to note regarding this change.

First, the following Data Management screens are no longer available. And are now accessible via the corresponding Data Integration page.

Second, the update notes state that all Data Management features will eventually move to Data Integration except the following:

  • The batch feature will be replaced by the new Pipeline feature. The Pipeline feature was available in the June (23.06) update.
  • The Report Definition feature will not be migrated, only the Report Execution feature.
  • The ability to create new Custom Applications in Data Management will no longer available, and customers should use the “Data Export to File” application type instead.

Regarding the last bullet, for customers still using custom target applications, Oracle recommends using the Upgrade Custom Applications option to migrate the custom target application to a data export to file application. Additional documentation on topic can be found here. But don’t worry, this change doesn’t need to happen immediately as “Existing integrations that use a custom target application will not be impacted, and will still run without any changes” according to the release notes.
