              IFRS - International Financial Reporting Standards

              USGAAP Application:     - http://www.pwc.com/en_US/us/issues/ifrs-reporting/publications/assets/ifrs-and-us-gaap-similarities-and-differences-2012.pdf



              Journal Types- Create Journal, Edit Journal, Post JOurnal, Delete Journal.



              ICP - Intercompany - is a dimension in HFM



              Data form: You can enter data in an application using forms that your administrator created. Data Forms enable you to enter data for predefined views, such as specific periods and accounts. The forms support nested columns and rows for multidimensional analysis, and enable you to drill into further detail.




              Data grid - You use data grids to enter, view, or manually edit data in Financial Management applications.

              After you enter or edit the data, you can calculate the data, translate the data to other currencies, or consolidate the data. You can view data status, calculation status, process levels, line item detail, and destination and source transactions.



              These options are available for consolidating data: Consolidate (Impacted), Consolidate All with Data, and Consolidate All.



              LCM (Life Cycle Management) is a tool which can be used to migrate Hyperion applications, cubes, repositories, or artifacts across product environments and operating systems. It is accessed through the Shared Services Console.



              Why do we load data monthly - It depends on requirement.



              What is HFM Performance tuning  - Tuning settings required to tune in our applications and are recommended by Oracle Hyperion.
