Clearly people are finishing up their KScope content, because this was a pretty busy week. Patches and Updates: FCM 11.1.2.4.103 has been released. The June update to PBCS appears to have been delayed until July.  <Insert Angry Face Here>  More on this as it becomes available. New Blog Posts: I finally got a blog post…

Essbase Performance Series: Part 1 – Introduction

Welcome to the first in a likely never-ending series about Essbase performance.  To be specific, this series will be designed to help understand how the choices we make in Essbase hardware selection affect Essbase performance.  We will attempt to answer questions like Hyper-Threading or not, SSD’s or SAN, Physical or Virtual.  Some of these things…

The EPM Week In Review: Week Ending May 21, 2016

New Blog Posts: This week I STILL didn’t manage to get a post in.  I promise that will change next week…i have one ready to go, I just want…

The EPM Week In Review: Week Ending May 14, 2016

This week we are a bit more timely!  It does however seem that everyone is preparing their 1st drafts for Kscope, as it was a really slow blogging week.  Luckily, Oracle offset that slowness with the release of two new products in the cloud. Patches and Updates: Oracle has finally released Enterprise Planning Cloud (formerly…

The EPM Week In Review: Week Ending May 7, 2016

Patches and Updates: FR 11.1.2.4.701 has been released!  It brings with it features from the cloud like the Web Reporting Studio and charts that don’t look like they came from Lotus 1-2-3.  I’m excited…

Drill-Through in PBCS and Hyperion Planning Without FDMEE

While recently debugging an issue with FDMEE, I needed to test drill-through in Hyperion Planning without using FDMEE.  But wait…can you even do that?  I had always planned on showing how to use Drillbridge with Hyperion Planning, but as I was talking with Jason, he mentioned we could even get it working in PBCS.  So…

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

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…
