    No More Surprises – Integrate Automated Regression Testing into the Everyday for Oracle Hyperion
    Jonathan Berry, Accelatis

    This session will discuss how regular automated testing of key performance elements of your Oracle Hyperion environment can greatly reduce issues experienced by your users. Having regular and consistent results to key performance data can expose potential infrastructure and application issues very early. This benchmark data can become leading indicators to the health of the overall system, allowing for proactive performance management to enhance the experience of your end-user community. We’ll look at three case studies of Hyperion clients that proactively test for conditions and review not only what they test for but also how they analyze and leverage the data. We will also discuss how Accelatis Ascension Suite can enable this testing.

    Join ODTUG Expert’s Panel Webinar!  

    This is a live interactive panel similar to the ACE Lunch and Learn panels held at Kscope conferences. This innovative webinar is modeled after a call-in radio talk show. You will be able to chat a question to our organizer and if it is accepted you will have the option to verbally ask the question to our panel. Please be sure to have the proper equipment (headset and a quiet office) so that our panelists can clearly understand your question. You’ll also be able to participate in the discussion with the panel while they answer your question.

    The following are some potential topics, but audience participation will shape the scope of the panel:

    • What are the top features of ODI 12c and can they be used in a typical data warehouse implementation?
    • Describe the migration from OWB to ODI 12c as it might occur in practice. Anything to watch out for?
    • What are some examples of customizations that you have made in ODI and why?
    • Interested in taking the ODI certification exam? We can talk about what was in the test, how to prepare for it, what to study, etc.
    • Using ODI to improve the Hyperion Planning/Essbase capabilities.

    Thinking Strategically: Critically Assessing Your Current EPM/BI Applications
    Joe Aultman,

    In today's “git ’er done now” world, people rarely stop implementing and maintaining long enough to ask themselves, “What's the point?” In this session, we will teach you how to go from thinking tactically about specific applications to thinking strategically about how all the products work well together. Covered will be specific assessment techniques such as when to put things in cubes vs. relational databases, determining which BI products should be discontinued, ways to integrate BI products from multiple vendors, and how to prepare a three- to five-year strategic roadmap that will drive your company forward. If you want to be the one at your company who can rise above the fray and see the big picture of Oracle EPM and BI, then you should definitely attend this session!
