When organizations look to enhance their operations by layering in new systems or processes, and engage outside parties to perform these tasks, one of the first considerations remains to have the parties sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement, or NDA. An NDA is a contract through which parties agree not to disclose information covered by the agreement, most often sensitive information, and creates a confidential relationship between the parties to protect any type of confidential and proprietary information or trade secrets being disclosed outside of the parties.
Object Management Workbench (OMW) is the tool that manages and controls the EnterpriseOne's development life cycle. Out of the box, they provide the basic setup which ties into the standard pathcode configuration. The default development lifecycle is very straight forward.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave... Sorry, could not resist the temptation. Probably the biggest user issue between World and EnterpriseOne is the user interface. The highly interactive web-based interface of EnterpriseOne seems to be a major change for most folks. World customers have tried various web interfaces for World, i.e. WorldVision, JWalk, etc., however those have never really proved to be viable productive interfaces.
Question: Oracle is releasing a lot of exciting mobile apps. What do I need to run them at my company?
Answer: There are several different mobile solutions available from Oracle. The Mobile Enterprise (AIS) solution for phones and tablets provides a number of mobile applications that are already built and ready to go. You can find these apps on iTunes and Google Play for tablets and smartphones.
So now that my system is up and running I realize that I need to leverage some additional software solutions with my ERP system in order to truly get the biggest bang for my buck. Luckily for me, I know that I have a set of application programming interfaces, or API's, that allow me to connect everything seamlessly. API's are sets of routines, protocols, and/or tools that allow for building software applications. An API allows users to express a software component in terms of their operations, inputs, outputs, and underlying types. Application Programming Interfaces set the standards by which ERP software can "talk to" other web-based software applications. Software companies release their API's to the public so that other software developers can design products that are powered by its underlying service. In simpler terms, software providers may expose their API's so that their clients can "grab" inherent data, like the price of a product, and expose it to applications that they may have developed, like their external website.
