Taste of Kscope17 Webinar Series:
Unbiased Comparison: Evaluating All Deployment Options for Hyperion EPM – SaaS vs. IaaS vs. On-Prem
                Eric Helmer, Mercury Technology Group

Today, the word "cloud" is everywhere, and it's causing a lot of confusion. Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS) are completely different solutions but are all considered "cloud."

This session will compare and contrast the different available options Oracle customers have to deploy Oracle EPM. It will break down all Oracle's cloud offerings, IaaS, third-party hosting, traditional on-premise deployments including Exalytics, and hybrid approaches.

This session will read between all marketing lines and discuss what’s possible and what’s a bit overstated. It will cover differences in functionality, data integration, security, flexibility, and scalability. Finally, we will evaluate the differences in costs, including hardware, software licensing, and ongoing maintenance.

If you are looking to make a decision on how best to deploy, upgrade, or outsource Oracle EPM this is a don’t miss webinar.

2017 CodeTalk Series - Unit Testing PL/SQL Code in the Real World
Steven Feuerstein, Oracle Corporation with Stefan Poschenrieder, Jacek Gebel and Pavel Kaplya

2017 CodeTalk Series is Co-Sponsored by ODTUG and IOUG.

It’s been quite a while since Oracle Database developers could complain that there were no tools to help them automate the testing of PL/SQL program units. These days, you can choose from SQL Developer with its integrated unit testing, utPLSQL, an open source framework, Code Tester for Oracle, a commercial product from Quest Software, and more. In this CodeTalk, Steven hosts a conversation with three developers who have been heavily involved in establishment strong unit testing processes with their dev teams. Learn from their experiences, mistakes and lessons!

Taste of Kscope17 Webinar Series: The EPM Clouds are Rolling in Fast! Is It Really Worth Upgrading My On-Prem System Now?
Joe Malewiki, iArch Solutions

So it’s here. The storm has been brewing and it looks like this time, we might actually see some weather. The reality is yes; everything is headed to the cloud. However, this session isn’t about “tomorrow.” It’s about TODAY.

Today you have a fully baked production running EPM/Hyperion system. You’ve got Essbase cubes crunching data, Financial Management Consolidations firing off daily, Planning web forms being updated every week and finally tons of users with a local version of Excel 2010 on Windows 7 complaining daily “Smart View is too slow!” You’ve got IT and Risk Management stating Microsoft has cut off the version of SQL Server and Windows 4 years ago yet Hyperion is still lingering along on these unsupported platforms. Why? Because you can’t run your business WITHOUT Hyperion.

In this session we’ll help you address and develop a plan with minimal to NO downtime to get your “on-prem” Hyperion installation up to the latest and greatest available from Oracle. We’ll help you decide what makes the most sense for an upgrade path: On-prem hardware, virtualizing, hosted environments, or shared resources. Discussions on 3rd party hosting providers and yes, discussions on Oracle’s Cloud versions of their EPM software stack and how all relates to an upgrade.

You’ll see a LIVE demonstration of “BEFORE” and “AFTER Upgrade” real world EPM application performance and system functionality. So please join us for this educational and informative session and let’s get you up to where you should be today! And remember – someone’s “cloud” is just someone else’s “computer.”

Data Modeling, BI Modeling and/or Data Blending. What Should I Do?
Hasso Schaap, Qualogy

Oracle now provides many options to create relationships and other structure within data and between data sets. But when having all the options it is important to understand the differences between all these types of modeling and choose the right tool to do your modeling.

This session will explain the different types of modeling and modeling tools, compare (dis-) advantages and guide you to choose the right modeling tool for the right modeling job. We will also share how we leveraged all types of modeling and blending to create maximum value for our customers.

We will finally present a collaborative BI workflow that puts a lot of Oracle modeling tools in one overview. Tools we will be mentioning are Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler, Oracle BI Cloud Data Modeler, BI Admin Tool and Data Preparation, and the Blending features of modern Oracle Data Visualization.

Top Line to Transactions in a Click: Real-time Analytics and Reporting for Oracle Applications without the Data Warehouse
Mike Nader, Matthew Halliday, and Raj Lalchandani, Incorta

While Oracle Applications are excellent for data collection, for analytics and reporting it’s a different story—and one where the cards are stacked against you. Not only does it require complex ETL and data modeling, but the solutions are not adaptable to the dynamic requirements of the user community. To further complicate matters, multiple administrators per product and price tags in excess of $1 million for implementation and maintenance are commonplace.

Join a panel of Oracle analytics experts as they share a case study based on a radically simplified approach recently employed at a Top Ten US University. You’ll learn:

  • The top 5 pitfalls when deploying analytics for Oracle Applications.
  • How Incorta reduces the delivery of new analytic applications from months to days—and empowers business users to freely explore data using their favorite tools.
  • How you can drill from top line to transactions in a few clicks.
  • An innovative approach to analysis and reporting of complex, relational data that does not require the time and cost to reshape enterprise data with ETL.

In addition to the panel discussion, this session also provides a live demonstration of a modern data and analytics platform.

From Zero to a Full OBIEE Model in 60 Minutes
Gianni Ceresa, DATAlysis

OBIEE has the reputation to be that old style BI platform, managed by IT and taking months to deliver every single project. This reputation is unfair, OBIEE can be great for prototyping and it is fast to setup a model.
In this session we start with an empty setup and end up, 60 minutes later, with a full RPD using relational sources and a federation with an Essbase cube. LIVE! All will be done in real time while telling you about each step. Isn't that fast and agile? And it's OBIEE!
If you are new to OBIEE or already using it but a bit reluctant about "online editing" this is definitely for you.

Keeping up with the Jones’: The Upgrade Process to OBIEE 12c
Linda Zheng, Lower Colorado River Authority and Michelle Kolbe, Red Pill Analytics

It’s true that the upgrade process from OBIEE 11g to 12c is more simple than previous upgrades. However, it’s not all roses as we learned in the process of upgrading a large OBIEE environment at LCRA. We’ll walk through the steps to upgrade to OBIEE 12c from 11g. We’ll discuss using some of the new features of 12c including Baseline Validation Tool to check for differences in environments, import service instance and the BI migration tool. Most importantly, we’ll talk about all of the lessons learned from experiences with this 12c upgrade.
