Hyperion EPM Week In Review: August 16, 2016

HyperionEPMWeekInReviewWelcome to an extremely late edition of the Hyperion EPM Week in Review.  Let’s get right to it.

Hyperion EPM Patches and Updates:

Shared Services is now available.  Looks like a few bug fixes.

Hyperion EPM Blog Posts:

Sarah has a post about calculations in Data Viz and playing with the settings to make sure you get the right answer.

Celvin has a tip for those of us that switch between Oracle Cloud instances.  If you ever accidentally hit the button to save the domain when logging into Smart View, this will help you out.

John Goodwin has an excellent post on using the new EPM Automate replay functionality.  I love load testing.  So does John…and here is part 2.

Neha shows us how to use calculation manager variables with Essbase calc scripts.  Pretty cool stuff including a CDF.

Vijay shows us some sample code for streamlining exports with some cool shell calls with MaxL.

Will shows us how to reduce the size of the run time prompts in Planning.  This is great for those of us with clients using monitors from 1999.

Pete has a quick post telling us about his experience with the 1002023 Essbase error.  Can’t beat the vague and sometimes inaccurate error messages of Essbase.

Justin has a post about using FDMEE and the JAPI for Essbase to create dynamic calculation scripts.

Harry highlights some of the new features in his newly productionized cubeSavvy tool.

Ricardo shows us a little bit of architecture around integrating PBCS, BICS, DBCS, ODI, and ABCDE.  Ok, so I added the last one, but that is a lot of acronyms.

Gary helps us find the logs on an Exalytics T5 box.  Solaris…fun.

Opal has a great post on clearing data out of PBCS using a job.  This should enable EPM Automate to do partial ASO data clears if I understand it correctly.  Unfortunately I have had several people confirm that this is a “bug” and not yet available in EPM Automate.  September is right around the corner…hopefully this fix will make it in.


Another quick shout out for the ODTUG GeekAThon.  For those of us real geeks out there, they have a competition worthy of the maker community.  You can find the announcement here.  You can find the competition website here.  And a quick re-cap:
