Weekly Offenders – Kscope17/Holiday Hangover Edition

Introduction to Weekly Offenders

Last week I started by up my weekly review of EPM blogging.  There was quite a bit of content with Kscope17 having just finished up and everyone seemed excited to contribute to the community.  Between the holidays and everyone recovering from Kscope…last week wasn’t nearly as productive.  However, it was an odd week with a holiday in the middle of the week.  And luckily, Oracle had a few on-prem patching to keep things interesting.  Here we go!

Oracle Business Analytics – Proactive Support Blog

The Proactive Support Blog brings us news of a few on-prem patches this week.  First, we have an update to Hyperion Financial Reports.  The patch appears to solve a number of defects, but I don’t see any new functionality.  As with all future FR patches, Oracle reminds us that the desktop Financial Reporting Studio is dead.

The blog also provides us with news of an HFM patch (  While a variety of new features are listed, they are generic to the .2xx series of HFM patches.  This appears to be mostly bug fixes.

Celvin takes an in-depth look at some of the Simplified User Interface (SUI) features in PBCS.  He touches the new dimension editor and composite forms in navigation flows.
