Oracle Fusion Applications Workflow for Project Implementation & answers to questions received by e-mail on Fusion



We are now at release 6 of Oracle fusion applications (11.1.6), many questions have been raised on the implementation approach. Fusion don't forget is a combination of multiple Enterprise systems that Oracle acquired and yes Oracle took some of each to create Fusion.

Below is a visual diagram I created on the steps required to implement an instance of fusion applications:

In general , it took me about 3 days to configure HCM and Financials, the functional configuration enables your Offerings and Functional Areas for implementation, and you select the Feature Choices, which typically enable you to integrate Offerings. Below is a screenshot

Question – What are some of the differences between EBS and Fusion Applications?

This questions comes often and people still believe no major changes exist,    below are 4 of them in the areas of Authentication, Authorization, Security and Segregation of duties.



Fusion Application



FMW(Fusion MiddleWare) OAM/LDAP


AOL security model

FMW OPSS Oracle Platform Security Services

Security platform



Segregation Of Duties (SOD)

No functionality

Predefined SOD policies
Application Access Controls
Governor (AACG)

Question – In Fusion Applications Vision data does not exist anymore?

This is a common myth; here is a screenshot with some vision data

Question 3 – Oracle Fusion Applications Documentation not available online?

Below is the link to Oracle Fusion Applications release 11.1.6

 fusion apps doc 11.1.6

Oracle Fusion documentation is improving rapidly, it know include lots of detail with examples to help us take the right decisions.

    Alex like your blog, i disagree with a previous post that you predict everyone on Fusion in 5-8 years? Why so long? I think everyone will be on Fusion in the next 2 years, Fusion is so much better than the other enterprise systems.

      Hi Shilpa,
      100% agree with you that Fusion apps are more innovative and a better product than the current products,
      but I think clients face a strategic dilemma, and tough choices, on multiple fronts Fusion requires new skill sets and the switch is not that obvious, most corporations have a spiderweb architecture that integrate to other products.
      It’s not only about Fusion but also about the company’s IT roadmap.
      Another reference point if you look at EBS R12 (launched in 2007), Oracle still has a large number of clients on R11.
      Shilpa your prediction of 2 years I think is aggressive. But you never know what the future holds, let’s wait and see . Thank you for your comment
