Oracle EBS 12.2 Validated Integration

Combine the power of Oracle E-Business Suite with the familiarity of Excel with Spreadsheet Server v14®


Global Software, Inc., a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of its Spreadsheet Server, V14 with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.  Spreadsheet Server, part of Global’s Automation Suite, is an innovative Microsoft Excel add-in that allows users to access 'live' Oracle E-Business Suite data within Excel, while maintaining the full ability to drill down to supporting details.  Global’s Automation Suite enables users to leverage the familiarity of Excel as a reporting and analysis tool while providing up-to-the-minute dynamic data. 

To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of the customers. Built on a level of security defined in Oracle E-Business Suite, Spreadsheet Server enforces segment and ledger security based on defined responsibilities of the Oracle E-Business Suite user. Benefits offered by the integration are time savings in reporting processes, increased data integrity, and drill down capabilities.

“This Oracle Validated Integration demonstrates our strong commitment to providing the Oracle E-Business Suite community and our loyal customers with a more timely, efficient and secure reporting strategy,” states Spencer Kupferman, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Corporate Affairs with Global Software, Inc. “As a Gold level member of OPN, this achievement demonstrates our expertise and credibility when servicing the reporting needs of Oracle E-Business Suite customers.”

“Achieving Oracle Validated Integration gives our customers confidence that the integration between Global Software, Inc.’s Spreadsheet Server, version 14 and Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 is functionally sound and performs as tested,” said Kevin O’Brien, senior director, ISV and SaaS Strategy, Oracle.  “For solutions deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or both, Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review and test process that helps to reduce deployment risk and improves the user experience of the partner’s integrated offering.”
