With the continued investment in the Hyperion tool set by Oracle, there was a desire to centralize the development of calculations for HFM, Essbase, and Planning.  As a result of this, Oracle Hyperion Calculation Manager was born.  Calc Manager is a powerful tool for developing and administering rules for Planning and Essbase.   An intuitive graphical interface is available to help in the development process, helping to expedite movement through the learning curve for people just beginning to dip their toes into the world of Oracle Hyperion Planning and Oracle Essbase.

One of the most common areas of confusion in Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) has been the Scenario application setting for the Default View and Zero View.  Peering back into the history of Hyperion Solutions, you will find this setting has existed in all the Consolidation products, such as Hyperion Enterprise’s “missing values” setting under Categories.  They are not new features and are a fundamental to HFM.

Can FDM Do That?

FDM, HFM

Most everyone that uses or has seen a demo of Oracle Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management ("FDM") knows the basic functionality that FDM provides – mapping, data loading, data validation and financial statement certification.  But FDM is so much more than the basics.
