Hyperion EPM Week In Review: August 8, 2016

HyperionEPMWeekInReviewIt was another light week in the Hyperion EPM blog community.  Oracle however, did not help out with any new product releases.

Hyperion EPM Patches and Updates:


Hyperion EPM Blog Posts:

I posted about converting your applications to Hybrid Essbase this week.

Vijay tells us about a error in the Oracle documentation for DRM.  I’m certain you are all surprised that any of the Oracle docs could have mistakes.  No?  I guess I’m not either.

Celvin shows us where Oracle hid the Migration button for environments where no application has yet been created.  He also has a great post on making LCM content readable.  Given the movement to the cloud and lack of accessibility to the repository in the future…this is great content.  And it should work on-prem as well…if you were no inclined.

Sibin tells us about the Essbase application log parser he is working on.  He then tells us that it is actually available on GitHub.  Go break it for him!

John has a great post on cloud to cloud data movement.  This has a massive amount of potential as clients start to have FCCS and multiple instances of PBCS.

Jason continues his blog series on Dodeca.  This time he shows us how to use SQL and Essbase in a single view.

Cameron has a great post on dynamic load rule columns in Essbase load rules.  Looks like more to come soon as well.

Tim has a message to all of you OTDUG community members.  Read it…and decide what you want to do.  Will you be the next members of the board?  Will you apply for the leadership program?


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:
