In 2001, U.Va. began to roll-out Oracle E-Business Suite Financial and Human Resources modules. In conjunction with this roll-out, the University engaged in the design and implementation of a reporting solution for the new application. The new reporting tool needed to accommodate a new accounting structure that was established as part of the Oracle E-Business Suite implementation. This complexity made an intermediate set of views necessary to facilitate straightforward report creation and simplify reporting for end users.
Following a review of the vendors and toolsets available, U.Va. selected Oracle Discoverer and NoetixViews to streamline the reporting process. Over the multi-phase Oracle implementation, U.Va. adopted several NoetixViews modules, including NoetixViews for Human Resources, Supply Chain Management, Receivables & General Ledger, and Payroll. The University also implemented the Noetix Payroll Data Mart to simplify its tax and payroll reporting process.
“Given the short timeline we had to implement our new reporting solution,” said Rose Chisholm, Director of System Usability, “we questioned whether it was in our best interest to invest the staff time required to build our own views. After a cost/benefit analysis, we found that NoetixViews was the right solution for our immediate reporting needs.”
Leveraging their investment in NoetixViews for Oracle E-Business Suite, U.Va. is able to develop and maintain a central repository of reports for the roughly 2,000 users of the application. Additionally, power users take advantage of the Noetix views to create their own custom reports to serve their unique reporting needs.
U.Va. continues to benefit from the functionality that Noetix affords, particularly in how it automatically recognizes the set-ups and new flexfields to develop appropriate lists of values and name the columns. NoetixViews has enabled the University’s diverse application user base to retrieve the information needed for their specific business needs.
