Hyperion EPM Week In Review: September 20, 2016

Last week was clearly the calm before the Oracle OpenWorld storm!  This week in Hyperion EPM has been really, really busy!
Hyperion EPM Week In Review

Hyperion EPM Patches and Updates:

Hyperion DRM is now available.  It appears to be a few bug fixes.  Hopefully your bug was fixed!

Hyperion EPM Blog Posts:

Rodrigo continues his series on ODI 12c.  This part of the series covers loading dimensions and cubes using natural keys with the promise of a future post on surrogate keys.

Sibin had four posts this week.  First he covers how to delete a Planning application manually.  Next he covers a very specific drill-through issue with FDMEE.  Sticking with FDMEE, he moves on to updating the period tables.  Finally he continues on with FDMEE and shows off the functionality of drill-through in Planning.

Celvin had two posts this week between a long flight and a meeting that doesn’t interest him.  First he has an update to his NUMSysCmdLauncher utility that includes some new filter functionality along with a rewrite in Groovy.  Next up he has an intro to JSON for the REST API in PBCS.  Interesting read…as always.

Dayalan has part two of his series covering Essbase Web Services.  Looks complicated!

Jason had three posts this week.  First he covers simple drill-through in Dodeca.  Next he tells us that he is speaking at OOW (good luck Jason!).  Finally he has a new version of his Camshaft tool for executing MDX queries.

Eric shows off Oracle’s new online ordering for on-prem software.  Right now you can only purchase Essbase and a few of the reporting pieces, so no real EPM software…yet.

I have a post this week showing off my skills (or lack thereof) at recovering Oracle DB’s after an unexpected failure.

Oracle OpenWorld Coverage

OpenWorld is this week, in case you missed the massive amount of coverage.  I’ve recapped all of the blogging here by person.  If I get time later, I’ll consolidate this all into one big OOW blog post after it ends!




Another quick shout out for the ODTUG GeekAThon.  Only four (4) days left to complete your entries!!!

And for those of you who need a visual to assist in your procrastination, the red are the days past as of this post.  The green is the day you should be ready for, but will likely need to work right up until 11:59 to meet. 😉
