Hyperion EPM Week In Review: September 14, 2016

Welcome to another later edition of the Hyperion EPM Week In Review.  I actually waited a little later this week as it was a really, really slow week.  No PBCS updates, no FCCS updates, no on-prem updates.
Hyperion EPM Week In Review

Hyperion EPM Patches and Updates:

While this isn’t a patch or an update, the new Profitability and Cost Management Cloud Service has popped up on the Oracle Cloud website.  There is a video, some screenshots, and no pricing information.  This looks promising…

Hyperion EPM Blog Posts:

Celvin dug into the new 16.09 patch for PBCS and discovered a major change to the backup process.  He also shows off some new Smart View functionality.

Glenn has a quick post highlighting the differences in security for PBCS (and Planning) and FCCS.  Basically, all of the dimensions are secured by default.

Dayalan gives us a peek behind the Essbase covers while taking a look at the Essbase Web Services.  Pretty geeky stuff…I love it!

Sibin had not one, not two, but three posts this week.  First he takes a look at exporting data from PBCS using data management.  Next up, he covers the PBCS REST API’s and understanding Oracle’s idea of an error.  Finally, he shows us what happens in the Planning repository when we add a new data source for Planning.

Harry has an update to his cubeSavvy tool.  This update brings relational database queries!  Sounds like an exciting way to enable drilling from one source to another.

Like I said…a slow week.


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:
