Business Objects - GEMS Reporting - Load and Maintenance Schedule

This article describes the data load and maintenance schedule for the GEMS Reporting in Business Objects.

This article describes the data load and maintenance schedule for the GEMS Reporting in Business Objects.

The GEMS Reporting data warehouse is normally available to Business Objects users 24/7 with a ten-minute outage window at midnight for routine Business Objects back-up. Periodic system work and other database maintenance activities are typically scheduled outside of regular business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

IRF Ledger transaction data from the Financial Accounting System is updated a number of times each month:

  • After each weekly update to FAS itself. The FAS update normally occurs Friday night; this data is normally available in IRF by Saturday morning. This includes data for the following GEMS Batches:

    • A weekly Batch (GPWnnn) includes the initial transaction for each credit card transaction to the default account and the credit card clearing subaccount (9913)

    • A bi-weekly Batch (GPBnnn)) includes the final allocation transactions for approved reports. This batch is created on Tuesday nights; therefore, transactions for a report approved after the cutoff will not appear in IRF for two weeks.

  • After the month-end FAS close, typically about the fourth business day of the new month.

IRF Person data from the Payroll/Personnel System is updated after every payroll run. There are typically two biweekly and one monthly payroll every month, so IRF payroll and personnel data updates at least three times a month.)
