All About EPMA – From Setup to Tips and Tricks – January 12, 2017


Thursday January 12, 2017 – 3pm ET, 2pm CT, 12 pm PT

The classic method of building Essbase, Hyperion Planning, and Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) applications can be unwieldly. How is your process for building hierarchies? Is it time-consuming and difficult to maintain? Enterprise Performance Management Architect (EPMA) is an innovative tool, included in the Oracle EPM suite, designed to ease the burden of managing data and metadata. Reasons for using EPMA vs. Classic mode will be discussed, along with pros, cons, and design considerations. EPMA will be demonstrated including the shared library; local library along with how to share dimensions across HFM, Planning, Essbase BSO, and Essbase ASO applications; what extra setup is needed to support these applications; and how to exclude portions of a dimension. Also covered will be how to create a flat file and a profile, how to load the metadata, how to use the EPMA batch utility, and how to override properties.
