  • [SOLVED] BR100 and/or BFA

    Does anybody have BFA and/or BR100?

  • #2
    Patricia,

    I haven't seen either a BR100 or BFA for OTM to date. You'll find that most of the people currently working on OTM actually began working with the product when it was called GC3 (prior to Oracle's acquisition of G-Log) - so most of the Oracle standard processes, documentation and methodology aren't available for the application yet. G-Log officially became part of Oracle in November of 2005 - so it will take a while before the assimilation is complete


    Hope this helps!

      Thanks Chris,
      I am working with Patricia in the same project.
      Would you know where I can find BR100, BFA or any other documentation for GC3 ?
      Thanks a lot

        Rod,

        Unfortunately, I don't think you're going to find that documentation for GC3, either. Here's some documentation resources for you - however you'll find that they are all primarily technical docs:


        OTM Main Site:
        http://www.oracle.com/applications/s...ent/index.html


        Brochures and Data Sheets:
        http://www.oracle.com/applications/s...e-library.html

        OTM v5.5 Technical Documentation:
        http://www.oracle.com/technology/doc...tion/glog.html

        OTM / GC3 v5.0 Technical Documentation:
        http://www.oracle.com/technology/doc...on/glog50.html

        I hope this helps!

          Hi Chris,

          Went through the post. Was curious to know if we can find out from Oracle if there is any time line by when we can get User Guides for OTM, just as we have the user guides for other Oracle E-Business modules. Currently the only help available is the Online help.

            Amit,

            I've checked with some of my contacts within Oracle -- no definite information, but here's what I have:

            1) Oracle is working on more comprehensive materials for OTM - however, the primary focus now is on training materials and (pay-for) training classes. You can find more details at: OU BridgePage

            2) If you have access to an OTM installation, the best sources for information are the online help and the "Show Me" simulations. In order to access these, however, you need to have a valid license for OTM or work for a company that does.

            3) I wouldn't hold my breath on more comprehensive documentation -- it's a long process and OTM is a fairly young product (less than 7 years from the first production release).

            Your best sources for learning are going to be hands-on experience and online communities like these forums and the OTM SIG.

            Thanks!

              Thanks Chris for the info.

              I have access to OTM v5.0. Are the 'Show me' simulations part of v5.5? I am not able to find it in our installation.

              Thanks,
              Amit

                Amit,

                Yes - they new in OTM v5.5 CU1 and unfortunately are not part of previous versions.

                  Hello Chris,
                  I am using OTM 5.5 CU1.
                  Would you let me know where I can find the "Show Me" simulations.
                  regards,
                  Rod

                    Rod,

                    We've found that whether or not they are accessible depends on if your OTM installation was originally v5.5 and upgraded to CU1 via a patch (available) or it was a straight v5.5.1 installation (may not be available).

                    If they are present on your installation, you can access them by clicking "Help" link on the Main left-hand menu. After it expands, click on "Show Me". These only work with Internet Explorer browser on Windows. (I use Firefox on Mac.)

                    I highly recommend them, though, and they're great for learning some application basics.

                    Hope this helps!

                    Thanks!
                    Chris
