Luckily, Oracle has multiple excellent mobile answers: OBIEE Mobile Analytics, BI Mobile Application Designer, mobile Hyperion Financial Reporting, Hyperion Planning tablet, and Oracle EPM Mobile Approvals.

Creative Hyperion Planning Design: With Planning, There Is No Box
Topic: Planning – Subtopic: Optimization
In Hyperion Planning, there are the obvious ways to design applications (many of which result in cubes that are way too big, way too complex, and take way too much effort to maintain), and then there are the more creative ways. In this session, you’ll learn better ways to reduce dimensionality, how to use both ASO and BSO plan types successfully, methods for making your driver-based budgets more dynamic, ways to reduce form count by using user variables, and more. We’ll even cover creative uses for Planning outside of the world of budgeting and forecasting (one company used Planning for expense report entry). If you want to not only think outside the box but you want to blow it up, join us as we cover the creative side of Planning design.
