Book Description

In Detail

Oracle's E-Business Suite Human Capital Management enables organizations to architect a global foundation for HR data and improved business processes.

The book starts by introducing Oracle Application E-Business Suite, its architecture, and how to set up the preliminary components such as roles, groups, and profile options. As you progress through the chapters, you'll learn to define common data from an enterprise perspective, such as the unique structures for jobs, positions, job groups, and other business entities.
