Where the Snow Dare Not Go: LatinOAUG Sneak Preview at Collaborate 13

Where the Snow Dare Not Go: LatinOAUG Sneak Preview at Collaborate 13
Snow is dominating the weather forecast for Day 2 at Collaborate 13, but there is one session about a region that is known for its spicy food, lush rainforests, humid pampas, and its Tierra del Fuego or “Land of Fire.”Yes, we are talking about the Collaborate 13 meeting of the LatinOAUG ! Today at 4:30 pm in room 610 IT Convergence Chief Technology Officer Gustavo Gonzalez lead the Latin American Oracle Applications Users group, which was founded in 2005 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

When companies go global, Oracle can be a priceless asset, but as OAUG veterans well know, each region carries unique economic and legal requirements as well as cultural and linguistic issues that need to be negotiated. And Latin America Oracle E-Business Suite implementations pose unique challenges of their own.

Some of the local requirements that Latin American companies must deal with include:

• In Mexico, for example, there are special considerations for Electronic Invoicing and IETU Reports.
• In Colombia, many companies find difficulties when dealing with the PUC Set of Books, the Latin Tax Engine and third party management in Oracle Financials AP and AR.
• In Peru businesses struggle with managing the local Set of Books and handling detractions, income, AP and AR reports in Oracle Financials.
• Chile brings specific conditions for Electronic Invoicing and the Purchase and Sales Ledgers, as well as the need for tracking the movement of goods.
• In Venezuela companies are required to submit a variety of SENIAT reports

Luckily, it is possible to find Oracle solutions for all these issues by means of customizations and localizations, and the LatinOAUG was founded to help users in the region do just that.

Gustavo Gonzalez has been working with Oracle Applications for almost two decades, serving in both Latin American and US-based multinational companies. He was also a founding member of the LatinOAUG.
