It is a whole, new world… a new fantastic point of view in the EPM Cloud. In this session we’ll share best practices for designing PBCS and EPBCS applications. Whether you are migrating from on-premise Hyperion Planning applications, or creating a new planning cloud application, you’ll find great time saving tips here! What design best practices from on-premise Hyperion Planning still apply? Which ones should be totally scrapped? Still undecided whether to make the leap to the cloud?

While you know you'll be going to the Cloud eventually, for various reasons (political, monetary, priorities, trust, etc...) you will be staying on-premises for the foreseeable future. So how do you minimize sinking more costs into your on-prem solution while making sure that unitl you do make your servers someone else's problem, your applications will keep running? In this session, learn how to extend the life of HFM, Hyperion Planning, Essbase, and OBIEE through a combination of upgrades (hopefully, the last you'll ever do), stop-gap improvements, and workarounds for features that are only available on the Cloud versions of the products. If you know you're going to be on-prem for now, let's make the best of it, shall we?
A lot has changed in EPM and BI in the last twelve months. A year ago, we released the results of our inaugural State of Business Analytics survey and identified the key disrupters that defined 2017. We are kicking of 2018 with the updated survey results of how 250+ companies are doing in the world of reporting, analysis, planning, and consolidation. We are excited to present two years of data, which allows us to see not only where the EPM/BI space is today, but exactly what has changed in the last year. This webcast will reveal changes in your own platforms as well as trends in technology disruption (hint: Cloud is a big one but not the only revolution we're facing). As you'll see from the data, BI & EPM are changing faster than anyone realized. If you want to find out how your budget cycle time, consolidation & close process, reporting & analysis capabilities, and Cloud adoption stack up against your peers, be sure not to miss this webcast. Your competition will be there.
The world of analytics and reporting is not only changing, it's going through a full-blown revolution unlike anything seen since the advent of ad-hoc analysis. Some changes you'll need to implement immediately (self-service, data visualization) and others you'll need to start blazing the trail soon (machine learning, big data) and others like analysis inversion will be here before you're ready... unless you start acting now. If you want to be prepared for the Business Analytics revolution hitting in 2018, make sure you attend this session no matter what technology you're using (or plan on using).
Reporting and analysis systems have been growing organically and independently for several years in many organizations. In the current world of “how can I get my information faster” mentality, no one ever stops to ask "in 3 years, where do I want to be with managing the performance of my business?” Companies are looking for consistent improvement – something to disrupt the “in the moment” mindset – and transition from thinking tactically to developing a strategic plan for close solutions, More...reporting, analysis, modeling, and planning. Whether your company is acquiring your first Business Analytics solution, moving to the cloud, or experiencing the effects of implementing multiple reporting solutions that are not integrated, automated or have just been gathering dust over the years, this session is your key to kicking off the start of developing your strategic vision.
Visit cloud.Oracle.com and you'll notice something peculiar: the name "Hyperion" is nowhere to be found. Is this a simple oversight or has Hyperion been relegated to the dustbin of antiquity alongside the 8-tracks of the Bay City Rollers? If it is intentional, WTF, and who's in charge of this decision so I can beat him with my original installation disks of Hyperion Enterprise? More importantly, what does this mean for my heavy involvement in the world of Hyperion? If you have purchased Hyperion products, learned Hyperion products, and paid (a lot of money) to implement Hyperion products, what does this mean to you? Is it really as bad as it sounds? You'll have to tune in to find out if Hyperion is really dead and if so, what is taking its place.
