What role do Business Rules play in ensuring clean data capture in Infor SunSystems?
Within SunSystems the chart of accounts and analysis dimensions are independent sets of records. On one hand this makes it very easy to create new accounts or analysis codes as they are separate records. In many companies though there are combinations of these records which satisfy their own business logic (ie Assigning a reporting group to a range of accounts, ensuring only Marketing department uses the Marketing related chart of accounts). Through the definition of Business Rules we can define these implied relationships and thereby ensure only valid combinations are captured on a reference record or on a transaction at the time of processing the transaction. As a result the data is captured correctly and not causing time to be wasted at month end on reconciling/validating the data.
