Oracle Linux for Developers

Tried, tested, and tuned for enterprise workloads, Oracle Linux is used by developers worldwide.

Oracle Linux yum server and Oracle Container Registry provide easy access to Linux developer preview software, including the latest Cloud Native Environment software.

Thousands of EPEL packages also have been built and signed by Oracle for security and compliance.

Software collections include recent hon, PHP, Node.js, nginx, and more.

In addition, Oracle Cloud developer tools such as Terraform, SDKs, and CLI are available for improved experience.

Use VirtualBox to run Oracle Linux with the cloud native software on your desktop and easily deploy to the cloud.

Come to this session to learn more about speeding up your development and move to the cloud.

What is SLA and how can it work for you? Knowledge is everything when it comes to this topic

The topic of Oracle SubLedger Accounting (SLA) to many is perceived as complex. It is further uncommon knowledge that SLA can be amended to suite business needs and aid analysis. The session will provide an overview of SLA and how it can be configured to improve financial reporting. We also explore how SLA updates feed into GL Wand and SLA drilldown

In short, this presentation will cover the following:
• What is Subledger Accounting (SLA)?
• Understanding SLA and its default setup in Oracle
• Making sense of the various components of SLA
• Configuration changes to the accounting rules in SLA made easy
• Leveraging the SLA repository as a single source of reporting
• Unlocking SLA reporting with GL Wand

Analytics on Financials doesn’t need to be so hard
