Oracle General Ledger (GL) was the first Oracle Applications module launched more than 20 years ago.
Release 12 and Cloud (SaaS and/or co-existence) have introduced "ground breaking" changes to the structure of this product that needs discussion and advertisement - not in the marketing sort of a way, but in a way that educates users about GL.
Now, more than ever, GL users need a forum for free exchange of GL related information. Organizations upgrading or implementing GL have a host of unanswered questions.
White papers and presentations are very few and far between. Our attempt to network is to share the common knowledge base.
We also intend to work closely with other SIG Groups and want to provide a more process based discussions and meetings to ensure that a business like approach to using systems will be created to help the users provide value to their organizations
