Enterprise Command Centers (ECC) provide information discovery along with visualization and exploration capabilities embedded within Oracle E-Business Suite user interfaces. ECC Framework enables the creation of business dashboards in different functional areas. Oracle E-Business Suite users navigate transactional information using interactive visual components and guided discovery capabilities allowing exploratory data analysis. Mobility and responsive design is built into the ECC Framework, and all dashboards automatically adjust layout to better fit a desktop or mobile device form factor. ECC automatically adheres to existing Oracle E-Business Suite security. The dashboard content a user sees is completely consistent with Oracle E-Business Suite context and security.
Each Oracle Enterprise Command Center extends the owning Oracle E-Business Suite application with discovery-oriented dashboards that bring together diverse operational data from across the Oracle E-Business Suite. ECC dashboard users identify and act on top priorities without the need for custom operational reporting, and use information-driven navigation. With tools and visualizations such as actionable indicators, tag clouds, interactive charts, and consumer-like search and filters, users can browse and drill on whatever engages their attention. With each drilldown or search refinement, the data engine recalculates indicators, tag clouds, charts, and search choices to provide the user with new information on which to base next discovery steps. Through this "conversation with the data", users narrow in on today's most important business challenges, all without predefined navigation paths, structured queries, or operational reports.
Having identified the most pressing business challenges, users seamlessly transition to detailed transaction screens to take immediate and informed action. Transaction screens are pre-populated with the results of information discovery; no re-querying of data is required. Users can switch between information discovery and transaction screens as they work their way through a set of identified problems, retaining the current discovery context.
ECC Framework is built on scalable architecture comprising the following three main layers:
ECC User Interface and UI Designer - Modern and interactive UI components with a browser-based designer that allows dashboard content creation through a drag-and-drop framework and fully declarative controls.
ECC Service Interface - REST-based APIs that control creation and retrieval of data and metadata. They provide advanced capabilities for data retrieval such as aggregations, associations, rollups, and more.
ECC Core - A storage and query engine that enables the definition of data sets along with customized behaviors, relationships, calculations, and more.
Using ECC, you canBrowse and drill on actionable indicators
- Use consumer-like search and filters
- Drill down with all indicators and search choices recalculated
- Through "conversation with the data", narrow in on most important priorities
- Navigate to selected transactions to take action
