Oracle Endeca Information Discovery

What is Oracle Endeca Information discovery Tool - Oracle Endeca Information Discovery is an enterprise data discovery platform for advanced, yet intuitive, exploration and analysis of complex and varied data.
Information is loaded from disparate source systems and stored in a faceted data model that dynamically supports changing data. This integrated and enriched data is made available for search, discovery, and

analysis via interactive and configurable applications. Oracle Endeca Information Discovery enables an iterative "model-as-you-go" approach that frees IT from the burdens of traditional data modeling and supports the broad exploration and analysis needs of business users.



Components of Oracle Endeca -


Integrator Designer -Integrator Designer provides an easy-to-use interface you can use to create graphs for loading and updating your data quickly.
A graph is essentially a pipeline of components that processes the data.

Integrator Server -Information Discovery Integrator Server provides a runtime environment for the graphs.Integrator Server is not required in order to load data into the Endeca data domains. In other words, you can run Integrator Designer independently, and it does not require Integrator Server to do its work.You use Integrator Server only if you are running graphs in an enterprise-wide environment.

Oracle Endeca Information Discovery Studio is a web-based enterprise data discovery platform for advanced, yet intuitive, exploration and analysis of complex and varied data. Studio enables an iterative "model-as-you-go" approach that frees IT from the burdens of traditional data modeling and supports the broad exploration and analysis needs of business users.

Studio includes the Provisioning Service, which allows business analysts to create Studio applications by uploading their own data directly from spreadsheets.

Oracle Endeca Server is the core search-analytical database. It organizes complex and varied data from disparate source systems into a faceted data model that is extremely flexible and reduces the need for upfront data modeling. This highly-scalable server enables users to explore data in an unconstrained and impromptu manner and to rapidly address new questions that inevitably follow every new insight.

Ledger Sets and how to Grant a responsibility access to more than one ledger

Ledger Sets and how to Grant a responsibility access to more than one ledger



Data access sets control which ledgers or ledger sets can be accessed by different General Ledger responsibilities.To associate a data access set to a responsibility, you must assign a data access set to the GL: Data Access Set profile option at the Site, Application, or Responsibility level.

Please note that , ledger assigned to the GL Ledger Name profile option automatically defaults to the GL: Data Access Set profile option. If you do not want to access more than one ledger in General Ledger or secure read and write access to the ledger's data, you do not have to create your own data access set and assign it to the GL: Data Access Set profile option. You only need to create your own data access sets if you want to further limit read and write access to ledgers, ledger sets, or specific balancing segment values or management segment values for a ledger or ledger set.

Oracle iStore : Returns

Oracle iStore : Returns

Oracle iStore's Returns feature allows both B2B and B2C users to return items from orders placed

In today's e-commerce environment, accepting return items in Web stores is standard functionality. Providing returns functionality both reduces the cost of doing business for merchants, and provides a invaluable step toward a complete customer self-service orientation.

To address this business requirement, Oracle iStore provides Returns functionality in the Customer Application. Using the Orders menu in the Customer Application, customers can initiate returns for orders which are in Booked or Closed status in Oracle Order Management. If an approval process is being used, an administrator can use Oracle Order Management to evaluate the returns, and either approve or reject the returns. Merchants can set up returns with or without Oracle Workflow approval
