How do we start showing leaders around us what we can do rather than fitting into the box of what they think we can do? How do we motivate ourselves to do more than what we are being asked to do, and dare to explore areas that may become amazing opportunities for our careers? Join me in a candid conversation with a renowned panelist about what she did to influence the course of her EPM career, and how initiative and willingness to go the extra mile paved the way for her current success.

  Hyperion/EPM, Java, SQL Server…Upcoming Extended Support Deadlines and What They Mean for You
  
Dave Shay, 
Datavail


Extended Support deadlines are drawing near for the technology undergirding on-premises Oracle EPM/Hyperion systems. Learn about vendor Extended Support deadlines for Java, Oracle JRockit, Microsoft Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Linux, and Oracle EPM 11.1.2.4 and prior, and learn how they will affect your EPM/Hyperion applications. While some of these dates are a few years away, others are not, which may surprise you.

Also, learn about implications of an upgrade vs. moving to the cloud if your system is subject to Sarbanes-Oxley or similar change audit controls. If your Oracle EPM system is subject to these controls, take note of ways to avoid being red-flagged in a future year’s SOX audit.

 How Many Ways Can You Design an Account Hierarchy in the Cloud! 
 Megha Chopra
and Mohit Jain, Genpact


To create a consolidation application faster, FCCS provides multiple in-built dimensions and allows you to customize account hierarchy based on your organizational needs. Before 19.08, FCCS provided traditional BS and net asset approaches to design the account hierarchy. In the 19.08 version, FCCS has introduced the third hierarchy option, "Basic," to provide more flexibility while designing account hierarchy.

The new “Basic” balance sheet option provides a simplified hierarchy of the minimum required set of Accounts and Movement dimension members, based on the enabled features and a minimum set of seeded forms. With this, an option of “Indirect cash Flow” will also be available to define indirect cash flow.

In this live demo, we will design a complete account hierarchy using three different approaches to demonstrate the power of FCCS.

  • Why Basic Hierarchy
  • How Basic hierarchy is different from traditional BS and net asset approaches
  • Movement dimension in Basic hierarchy
  • Building “Indirect Cash flow” hierarchy
  • Overall impacts of introducing “Basic” account hierarchy to an application
 This will be an interactive session, join us as we show how designing an account hierarchy in the cloud is easy, fun, and relatively foolproof.
