Weekly Offenders – Week Ending 7/15/2017
Introduction to Weekly Offenders
This week was a bit busier than last week. We even had a few more posts about Kscope17 this week. What new this week?
I continued my series focusing on Essbase Performance. This week we started talking about physical vs. virtual Essbase performance.
John Goodwin has an excellent post showing off the new clearcube functionality in EPM Automate and the REST API for PBCS. Finally…ASO clears can be executed via batch!
The Proactive Support Blog brings us news of just one on-prem patch this week. Oracle Hyperion Tax Provision 18.104.22.168.202 has been released. Perhaps this is exciting to someone?
The blog also provides us with news of an HFM patch (22.214.171.124.205). 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 had a busy week starting off with a re-cap of Kscope17. He then takes a detour away from Oracle in general and focuses on an OLAP tool named Mondrian (Open Source ROLAP tool). Pretty neat. Finally, he also has a post about new PBCS features. The focuses on the ability to actually get audit information from PBCS. I just recently mentioned in a demo that we had been waiting for this…now I can demo it!
Tim Tow’s Hyperion Blog
Tim tells us how to get TLS 1.2. working on Java 1.6 (the version that ships with Oracle’s EPM stack). Pretty interesting. For those of you wondering what TLS 1.2 is…it’s basically a more recent version of SSL.
Be On the Lookout!
That’s it for this week! Be on the lookout for more great EPM Blog content next week!
