I was recently asked by Packt Publishing to review Yemi Onigbode's "Oracle E-Business Suite 12 Financials Cookbook”. I just finished few Chapters reading the book, and wanted to share some thoughts.
This is a good resource for EBS users and Financial consultant. The format of a “recipe book” is a wonderful idea, and is perfect for folks who are looking to become effective with EBS skill very quickly, looking for a point solution to an immediate problem, or just needing some creative inspiration when working on their user support or identifying key functionalities of the Oracle modules, to demonstrate a pilot to obtain the core requirements
The book’s 9 main chapters successfully provide more than 50 recipes to demonstrate the EBS R12 Financials core modules and their functionality. This book will give readers a step-by-step tour of the EBS R12 Financials core modules. The receivables process from billing to collection, including revenue accounting will be shown along with how to handle cash, create bank accounts, reconcile bank accounts, and create cash forecasts. Readers will not only learn how to create customers and manage sales orders, including shipping, pricing, and creating invoices, but also administer the general ledger, accounting setup, sub-ledger accounting, e-business tax, and create journals.
The authors have done a good job in selecting their recipes to cover common use cases most of support staff/consultant will face. This allows readers with a specific issue to skim through the Table of Contents for a relevant recipe and then work through the provided example.
Oracle E-Business Suite 12 Financials Cookbook is a good resource for a wide range of users specially for support staff who is working from end user side. This book is for EBS Financials specialists who want a broader understanding of particular areas of the financials modules.
