Creating net new apps on top of Netsuite with OIC Visual Builder by Niall Commiskey

image

I am probably speaking to the converted here, but for all  those still not aware of the rich functionality OIC provides. OIC is a toolbox containing a set of tools:

1. Integration – to connect apps

2. Process – to extend apps or simply to implement your own custom business workflows

3. Visual Builder – to create net new apps on top of your apis

4. Insight (due soon) – to provide business user dashboards on top of your integrations and processes, e.g. giving HCM professionals insight into an onboarding process – how long it takes, where are the bottlenecks etc.

Today we look at Visual Builder in respect of Netsuite. For those new to VB, just click here for my posts on what it is and how you use it. The scenario today is very simple – allow salespeople to update customer contact data outside of Netsuite, either thru a simple web or mobile app. Read the complete article here.

In this session Grant Ronald, Director of Technical Center of Excellence for digital assistants at Oracle, focuses on the key design decisions you need to make when building conversational digital assistants. You will learn about the most critical factors in designing conversation, best practices for designing intents, training your model, and the strategies for handling disambiguation, errors and keeping the user engaged. By learning these best practices now you can better ensure you build an awesome conversational experience.

Netsuite Custom Field Discovery by Sandeep Deshpande

image

Prerequisite

Before using an already existing netsuite connection, refresh metadata needs to be done on it. Make sure the last refresh status is complete for the connection.

This feature exposes custom fields for standard objects as named fields in the mapper and during netsuite endpoint creation for advanced search and saved search operations. This feature applies to all basic(except delete) and search operations of netsuite. And for both sync and async processing modes.

For Basic CRUD operations, the custom fields is exposed on the mapper as a named field. The custom field name is derived from the name given to custom field in netsuite. This makes it easier to map without needing to know the internalId and scriptId of a particular custom field for standard object. For eg, here is the mapping done for netsuite update operation. The image below shows a request mapping from Rest(trigger) to Netsuite Update operation on Customer Standard Object .

You can check that there are two fields that have been mapped for the netsuite update operation. ICSEmailId and AdvertisingPreferences. ICSEmailId is a simple type custom field, no further work is required on the part of the integration developer. Just use it like any other simpletype field. AdvertisingPreferences is a complex type custom field. It correlates to a multiselect custom field in netsuite. For complex type custom fields, listitemId correlates to the internalId of the listItem. For the invoke request to netsuite update operation to succeed, integration developer needs to ensure listItemId value is mapped. For mapping more than one listItem, just repeat the ListItem and do the required mapping. Read the complete article here.

Kafka Adapter for OIC by Daniel Martins Teixeira

image

The Kafka adapter for Oracle Integration Cloud came out earlier this month, and it was one of the most anticipated releases.

So what is Kafka? You can find all about it on https://kafka.apache.org/, but in a nutshell:

Apache Kafka is a distributed streaming platform with three main key capabilities:
  • Publish and subscribe to streams of records.
  • Store streams of records in a fault-tolerant durable way.
  • Process streams of records as they occur.

Kafka is run as a cluster on one or more servers that can span multiple data centres. The Kafka cluster stores streams of records in categories called topics, and each record consists of a key, a value, and a timestamp.

Kafka Adapter Capabilities

The Apache Kafka Adapter enables you to create an integration in Oracle Integration that connects to an Apache Kafka messaging system for the publishing and consumption of messages from a Kafka topic.

These are some of the Apache Kafka Adapter benefits:

  • Consumes messages from a Kafka topic and produces messages to a Kafka topic.
  • Enables you to browse the available metadata using the Adapter Endpoint Configuration Wizard (that is, the topics and partitions to which messages are published and consumed).
  • Supports a consumer group. Read the complete article here.

Four Priorities for Every CFO’s List in 2020 #1: Move from disconnected spreadsheets to integrated insights. CFOs spend more than two hours a day chasing down and reconciling data from spreadsheets scattered across their organization. That makes it hard for CFOs to see interdependencies across the company and leaves them at a strategic disadvantage. Next on the list.

Machine Learning in Digital Process Automation — Part III by Ralf Mueller

image

A lot has happened since the publishing of Part II of this article series. Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW) has advanced and on the process side we’re working on a truly multi-tenant, OCI native offering. As part of this, we’re re-architecting parts of the Machine Learning capabilities for Digital Process Automation and we will talk about this in a later article. In this article though, we’d like to demonstrate how ADW and Oracle REST Data Services can be used today for the consumption of Machine Learning models in Business Processes or any other component that supports RESTful Services.

Use Case

For this article we’re considering a Rental Car Use Case. We pick this use case for various reasons:

· Renting a car is well understood by many people, almost all of us went through some great or miserable experience while renting a car.

· We have a great formal description of the case in the form of EU Rent, which was originally developed as a challenge for Business Rules implementations.

· Quite incidentally, there are two public data sets available that we could use for Machine Learning
– A Car Evaluation data set for the prediction of the car safety. This can be used to build classification models for the prediction of the safety of a car.
– A Car Mileage per Gallon (MPG) data set for the prediction of the mileage per gallon of a car. This data set can be used to build regression models. Reda the complete article here. Read the complete article here.

Boost Your WebForm Productivity with our New Expression Builder Features by Nicolas Damonte, and Kalyn Chang

image

We’re introducing several new Oracle Integration improvements we hope will markedly boost your web form expression productivity.

These enhancements are an example of our ongoing efforts to address your feedback!

Expression Editor Redesign

We’ve redesigned the form expression editor to make it easier to build and keep track of event logic. The expression editor content is now cleaner, more compact, and easier to understand. Many of the changes were made in response to feedback from customers and the User Assistance team. For example, function variables are now aligned, and expression summaries are now clearly differentiated from input fields.

To see the new expression editor in action simply follow these steps:

1. Open a Form.

2. Add an Input Text control to the Form canvas.

3. Click on the Input Text.

4. Add any event from the General Properties panel. Read the complete article here.
