The EPM Week In Review: Week Ending April 9, 2016
This was a big week for patch releases and as always, a lot of a great blogging.
Patches and Updates:
The Essbase 188.8.131.52.008 patch finally hit the Proactive Support blog along. Last week we were missing EAS, Studio, and APS. This week we have them! Sadly, this patch does not fix my client’s issue. Oracle just updated my ticket says, and I quote…”sorry”.
More importantly, Oracle’s cloud and on-premises worlds have finally collided! The FDMEE 184.108.40.206.200 patch has finally arrived. This added cloud integration along with a ton of other important bug fixes (including a lot of unmentioned one’s).
New Blog Posts:
This week I blogged about loading SQL data into ASO in parallel.
Harry is working on a pretty awesome web-based Excel-like interface for Essbase. I’ll be installing this when he makes it available.
Christian shows us how to change the supervisor password in ODI. Good article, though I fear that I will have to ask clients for their supervisor password in the future instead of just knowing what it is.
Ricardo and Rodrigo published a great article on OTN exploring Planning Security with ODI.
Glenn explains an undocumented change to the way that Essbase interfaces with SQL Server in 220.127.116.11.
If you’ve ever been fighting your co-workers for RDP access, check out Pete’s guide on enabling multiple users.
The DEVEPM crew shows us how to compress remote files into a ZIP file using ODI.
Sarah shows us how to install OBIEE 12c. Handy for those of us in the EPM space that like to cross-over.
Missing your search-icon’s in the FDMEE POV selection dialog? Terry shows you where to find them.
The Oracle CEAL team has posted a new PDF on integrating OBIEE 12c with HFM. This goes through the entire install process for the drivers and configuring the ADM data source.
Kate shows us around the 18.104.22.168.330 patch for DRM. She pays particular attention to the newly introduced DRM Analytics.
