The Oracle team at eCapital hosted another installment in the Oracle PBCS Monthly Update series on December 14th. As part of this series, our panelists highlighted the newest features within Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS & EPBCS) that Oracle is releasing to the cloud. For the December 2016 update, eCapital experts reviewed and tested the latest Oracle PBCS release to highlight new features, major announcements, and addressed customer questions.
Following the live broadcast on December 14th, Oracle released the following statement regarding the December Update:
“After applying the December updates to the test instances on December 2, 2016, additional testing uncovered a regressive defect that affected the connection between Oracle Smart View for Office and Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud. As a result, the planned update to production instances on Friday, December 16, 2016, has been deferred until the January update cycle when this defect will be corrected. No customer action is required.”
We recommend that everyone who works with Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS) subscribe to our new series to receive notifications when each episode of the ‘Oracle PBCS Monthly Update Series’ is released.
