A session at Society for Technical Communication Summit 2014

Monday 19th May, 2014

2:15pm to 3:00pm

This session will present the taxonomy developed for an Oracle Finance implementation and focus on how each can be applied to specific use

The organization’s business processes were used to establish the taxonomy with the highest level representing the business functions followed by the activities performed for the function. The lowest level of the taxonomy resulted in transaction support materials resulting from the activity.
