Tetelestai, as the Greeks would say. Meaning - it is finished.

Four years since I first started an the update to this book... You can purchase this at: http://www.lulu.com/shop/jeffrey-t-hare-cpa-cisa-cia/oracle-e-business-suite-controls-foundational-principles-2nd-edition/paperback/product-23679820.html.

If you want to support more publication of best practices like this, please consider purchasing this book. 100% of the proceeds of the book will support Rapha House. Rapha House is a Christian ministry whose mission is "We exist to love, rescue, & heal children who have been rescued from trafficking & sexual exploitation." So your purchase of this book will not only serve to help motivate me to write more articles and books, but will also serve to protect 'the least of these' among us. See more at www.RaphaHouse.com

For those of you that have seen the musical - Hamilton - the phrase 'why do you write like you're running out of time' from the song 'Non Stop' comes to mind. More articles and books to come.

Oracle E-Business Suite Controls: Foundational Principles is just around the corner...

Oracle E-Business Suite Controls: Foundational Principles is just around the corner...

Can it be over soon???   I have been laboring over updating my E-Business Suite Application Security book for years and have one more chapter to write before it goes into final review...

It will be called "Oracle E-Business Suite Controls: Foundational Principles" and I hope, hope, hope to have it done by the end of April.

So... ready for it to be completed so it can be a resource for organizations running Oracle E-Business Suite.

The book has more than doubled in size an is approach 400 pages... It will likely have to be hard cover because of its size.  We'll see...

Then... it will be onward towards writing a similar book for ERP Cloud.
