ODTUG Kscope11 is right around the corner. Kscope11 offers the chance for a full day EPM Symposium on Sunday, plus the opportunity to learn from experts in the EPM and BI fields on a wide range of topics.
In Part 1 of this series, we introduced Calc Manager, providing a general overview and explanation of some new terms. In the second post in the series, we walked through the development of a Planning rule that utilized a run time prompt. In this post, we’ll explore templates provided within Calc Manager.
In Part 1 of this series we introduced Calc Manager, providing a general overview and explanation of some new terms. In this post, we will walk through the development of a rule for Hyperion Planning using the graphical interface within Calc Manager.
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.
In my previous post, I showed how to use LCM to back up or copy an entire planning application environment. Here I’ll expand on that subject a bit by showing some other uses you may find handy. This is by no means meant to be an exhaustive collection – just a few suggestions you may find useful and which may provoke ideas for other uses.
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.
Business Intelligence Technology Environment or BITE is my own little tag line and acronym (maybe I should copyright it) to express the host of solutions available in the Business Intelligence application world today. (It could also be used as a verb to describe the plethora of poorly designed solutions… ahh but that is another story.)
