Data loading process made easy for Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP with More4apps’ ERP Cloud Toolbox

Data loading process

The transition to Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP has been a major success for organizations struggling to streamline various business processes and functions. However, the process of loading data from external sources into the Oracle cloud applications has been a challenge that has not yet been effectively addressed. As a crucial step in driving decisions based on the accuracy of the imported data, this process seems to be negligible or oversighted. So it is necessary to navigate this challenge with a simple and efficient tool that supports easy export of data from any kind of source to the Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP.

This blog aims to guide you through the data loading challenge within an Oracle cloud application by introducing a user-friendly Excel sheet specifically designed for Oracle users by More4apps

Exploring Data Transfer Strategies in Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP

Before addressing the challenges associated with data loading, let’s analyze the kinds of strategies and approaches used by organizations in importing and exporting data for Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP.

File-Based Data Import (FBDI)

As an in-built tool for exporting bulk data from spreadsheets and CSV formats, this pre-defined template supports organizations working with general ledger, accounts payable and procurement. But the requirement of manual intervention for data mapping, size limitations in a single import batch and the complexity of creating and maintaining templates for less technical experts make FBDI a not- so-great choice for uploading data from external sources.

Oracle Data Integrator

This is an enterprise-grade data loading tool that is advanced with data quality management and change data capture. It offers support for data movement, data processing and data loading. As a license based model, this tool is complex and time consuming for implementation and ETL processes. Also, the tool requires fine tuning and monitoring of the performance of both ODI workflows and the data loading process, thus making it a complex approach for organizations.

Custom Scripts and APIs

By creating custom scripts or using Oracle Fusion Cloud RESTFul APIs, organizations can automate the loading process, perform complex data validations and integrate data from various external databases. However, thorough testing of the custom scripts is essential to check on the accuracy and compatibility of the data with Oracle Fusion Cloud. Also, the developed custom scripts should adhere to security and compliance requirements like data encryption, access controls and audit logging standards. This makes the process of data loading a major concern and challenge for organizations looking for a seamless and efficient data loading process.

Thus, the above strategies utilized for data loading for Oracle cloud applications like ERP solutions lack efficiency and a straightforward approach that helps with driving data-driven decisions.
