Oracle Analytics and How to unlock insights from data living within Oracle EPM - Part 2 (The Test Drive). In this post we will cover how to connect to Oracle EPM Cloud using the OAC Smart SAAS connector. We will also cover what is good and what needs improvements.
Oracle Analytics and How to unlock insights from data living within Oracle EPM. When and when not to use OAC and for what purpose is it suited. A better future with improved connectivity for EPM!
Quick dive in Oracle EPM Planning / PBCS to show a clever approach to track and report on Budget Adjustments / Changes. Concept can be applied to forecasting also. Enjoy!
Attribute dimensions are excellent tools for establishing descriptive capability of a dimension member and to then enable slice and dice capability by this attribute. For example, a project may have an attribute of a project manager as you would typically only have one project manager per project. The challenge results in the administration of this, as tends to be a manual task using the dimension editor and power is taken from the user to change/update this themselves and becomes an admin based task. • Why? Gives the control to users to easily view & update • How? Our approach relies on automation using EPM Automate (extract and import)
Quick dive in PBCS to show a clever approach to Restricting Form Triggered Business Rules with User Variable Selections. Enjoy!
In this post we look at on-demand data loads from source to PBCS. In on-premise Hyperion, if the requirement is to trigger on-demand data loads from within Hyperion they are a few options like Calc Manager command line triggers or Workspace Generic Jobs both of which can trigger batch scripts on the underlying servers to trigger the load from source systems to Hyperion. In PBCS this is a lot more difficult due to limitations of PBCS being a cloud solution that is not able to directly integrate with all source systems due to both technology and locations of these systems.
This is how we do it - Write Back data to Oracle Fusion Cloud or Fusion Financials from Oracle PBCS. Not your typical blog post.
Why is this so cool? Requires a one-time setup. Can now be done in the front end without access the source system. Re-introduces the copyapp function through the front end without server access / client tools to trigger. Has made a lot of people very happy, many of which refused to upgrade to 188.8.131.52 because... Continue Reading →
Some time back I wrote that Oracle Hyperion Financial Data Quality Manager (FDMEE) aka Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS) Planning Data Management is not able to load non-numerical data and that to me was a major flaw in an integration tool. Understandably so, I was upset at the time because after spending a... Continue Reading →
