FDMEE Can Do That?
Tony Scalese, Edgewater Ranzal
Did you miss Tony Scalese, Oracle ACE, author of The Definitive Guide to Oracle FDMEE, and EPM Foundations and Data Integration Top Speaker at Kscope16? No worries; join him on this live webcast to learn why Oracle Financial Data Quality Management Enterprise Edition (FDMEE) and its greatly expanded capabilities are, more than ever, a viable alternative to legacy methods such as MaxL. You will learn how FDMEE can help streamline and add value to an Essbase solution as well as explore how the product has grown and continues to grow to be a vehicle for so much more than loading trial balance data to HFM.

FDMEE Smart Replace for HFM
Bernard Ash, EPM Clarity
While HFM clears the entities in your current load file, it will not clear entities that were loaded previously. A clear of entities from a previous load could be required if someone books some transactions incorrectly (for example, to the wrong entities) and they flow through to HFM. Smart Replace will catch and clear ALL entities (even from previous loads) and by doing so will save customers from many hours of digging to find out why their data doesn't tie. Many thanks to Tony Scalese for writing the first generation of this Smart Replace module in VBScript, but this demo and code are by EPM Clarity in Jython for FDMEE compatibility. It is in production at Chevron.

Measuring, Analyzing, and Remediating Oracle Cloud Performance
Jonathan Berry, Accelatis
Leveraging the cloud to deploy your Oracle Hyperion applications can eliminate some challenges of maintaining on-premise systems. However, performance is still something that needs to be understood and managed by you, the client. Learn how the Cloud Solutions Platform from Accelatis can help you understand and analyze your performance and remediate certain issues in real time. This session will shed light on how various aspects of cloud application management relate to each other and how taking advantage of those relationships can yield a more efficiently managed system that runs more smoothly.

Data Warehousing in the Real World
Kent Graziano, Snowflake Computing
At a former health-care client, we were not able to implement a pure Data Vault 2.0 architecture. Instead, we had to evolve a hybrid solution that uses Type 2 persistent stage tables we tie together using standard Hub and Link structures along with a Key Map table. While we have been able to utilize DV 2.0 concepts such as MD5 hash keys, in order to avoid joins in loading the stage tables we had to come up with a way to resolve the business keys further into the process. We will show you our solution and discuss the pros and cons of our approach.

How to Make FDMEE-Triggered Essbase Calculation and Partition Scripts Targeted to Current FDMEE Loads
Bernard Ash, EPM Clarity
Fix Your FDMEE Essbase Loads:
Optimize FDMEE performance with Essbase by making all your operations more focused. When your customer’s requirements ask you to use FDMEE to load over 800,000 records per entity for one month, convert YTD to MTD, convert local currency to USD, and then push to an ASO reporting cube, it’s time to break out the big guns. Large data volumes or not, why not parameterize ALL your FDMEE-driven calc scripts based on the entities that are in a given load file? Why not do the same with a partition script that refreshes the data to a reporting cube after it has been loaded and calc’d in BSO? In this live, hands-on demo, we will use Jython to identify the distinct entities in a given data load (TDATASEG table) and pass these entities to a MaxL script to manage the focus of the calcs and partition scripts. This functionality is live at Cigna.

Incredible ODI Tips to Work with Hyperion Tools
Rodrigo Radtke, Dell and Ricardo Giampaoli, Teracorp
ODI is an incredible and flexible development tool that goes beyond simple data integration, but most of its development power comes from outside-the-box ideas.
- Did you ever want to have only one interface and loop any number of ODI objects with a lot of control?
- Did you ever need to have a "third command tab" in your procedures or KMs to improve ODI powers?
- Did you ever want to have only one data store and loop different sources without the need for different ODI contexts?
- Do you use "dynamic variables" and know how powerful they can be?
If you want to know the answer to all these questions, please join us in this webinar to learn the special secrets of ODI that will take your development skills to the next level.

Agile Data Warehousing: Using Oracle Data Modeler (SDDM) to Build a Virtualized ODS
Kent Graziano, Snowflake Computing
At a past client, in order to meet timelines to fulfill urgent, unmet reporting needs, I found it necessary to build a virtualized Operational Data Store as the first phase of a new Data Vault 2.0 project. This allowed me to deliver new objects, quickly and incrementally to the report developer so we could quickly show the business users their data. In order to limit the need for refactoring in later stages of the data warehouse development, I chose to build this virtualization layer on top of a Type 2 persistent staging layer. All of this was done using Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler (SDDM) against (gasp!) a MS SQL Server Database. In this talk I will show you the architecture for this approach, the rationale, and then the tricks I used in SDDM to build all the stage tables and views very quickly. In the end you will see actual SQL code for a virtual ODS that can easily be translated to an Oracle database.
- Learn a data warehouse architecture that can be implemented incrementally and in layers
- Learn what is a Virtual ODS and how it can help you be Agile
- How to quickly build pattern based stage tables in SDDM
- How to build complex, pattern based views in SDDM
- Tips on how to use analytic functions to create virtual columns
- See examples of how to embed change data capture into a view-based loading architecture
