Oracle Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud Service (FCCS) starts with 13 dimensions: Scenario; Year; Period; View; Consolidation; Datasource; Currency; Entity; Account; Movement; Intercompany partner; Custom1; Custom2.
FCCS “Consolidation” dimension recalls the old HFM “Value” dimension which means how data go up from my local currency balances to the contribution to a Consolidation Node. FCCS “Datasource” dimension recalls the old HFM “Nature” dimension: we can upload data manually or from TXT or from FdmEE, we can make adjustments in Local or consolidation currency, Fccs performs intercompany eliminations during consolidation process: all these different “nature” of data entry and manual / automatic journals are mapped into the “DATASOURCE” FCCS dimension. FCCS “Movement” dimension recalls the old HFM “Flows” dimension: this shows for istance the info about a fixed asset Opening Balance, an Acquisition, a Disposal and all the movements useful to the Note to Financial Statements.
