The EPM Week In Review: Week Ending April 30, 2016

Patches and Updates: Shared Services 11.1.2.4.003 has been released.  Looks like a small patch that fixes an LCM issue and a task flow issue.  Interestingly, this does not appear to be a cumulative patch as it specifies that it can only be applied to 11.1.2.4.002. HFM 11.1.2.3.702 has been released.  This one is cumulative to…

Drill-Through with ASO Plan Types

If you are 11.1.2.4 and you use ASO Plan Types, you may be aware of a bug that prevents drill-through from working properly.  Essentially, I can define drill-through in BSO and everything works fine, but ASO just doesn’t work.  You can see the intersection as being available for drill-through, but when you attempt to actually…

North Texas EPM Lunch

It’s time again to get everyone together for a lunch.  We’ll shoot for a Friday in May from 11AM to 1PM.  We generally try to stay near the Addison area to keep it somewhat central.  I’m personally partial to Friday the 13th.  Let me know now if you have a specific conflict *(outside of the…

The EPM Week In Review: Week Ending April 23, 2016

This was a pretty busy week.  Partly because I was out part of last week and missed several posts, but also because it was just a busy week. Patches and Updates: DRM 11.1.2.4.340 has been released.  Looks like another pretty good update.  DRM continues to be the most updated product in the EPM stack by…

The Planning Repository: HSP_ACCOUNT

Not to sound like a broken record, but…a few disclaimers: This is the fun stuff…that voids your warranty.  Not that you have to tell Oracle that you poke around here, but if you do, they will blame anything and everything that’s wrong on you for being in there. The content here has been tested and…

The EPM Week In Review: Week Ending April 16, 2016

This was a shorter week for me (vacation), so I may have missed some things.  If so, let me know so that I can update this post! Patches and Updates: The 11.1.2.4.102 Tax Governance Patch has arrived.  This one is totally out of my wheelhouse, so good luck! Speaking of things out of my wheelhouse,…

The EPM Week In Review: Week Ending April 9, 2016

This was a big week for patch releases and as always, a lot of a great blogging. Patches and Updates: The Essbase 11.1.2.4.008 patch finally hit the Proactive Support blog along.  Last week we were missing EAS, Studio, and APS.  This week we have them!  Sadly, this patch does not fix my client’s issue.  Oracle…

Parallel SQL Server Data Loads with ASO Essbase

If you have a ASO cube where timing is everything or a cube with multiple large data sets, waiting for data loads to process in series can waste valuable time. Luckily, Essbase supports parallel data loads! Sadly…while the documentation for this isn’t bad, it is inaccurate.  I’m sure it was accurate a few (or many)…
