  Are You Ready to Shoot For The Cloud?
  
Joe Malewicki,
iArch Solutions


Migrating to cloud may seem like an overwhelming task, but if you want to stay with your current on-premise software, you can still take the first step toward the cloud with an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution. With this option it's like you are getting a new stadium to compete in, but you're keeping the same high-performing team. We will discuss the different cloud offerings and whether upgrading your software in the process can also benefit your team now or in the long run. We will discuss just how cost effective an on-premise upgrade can actually be. The cost and time savings alone might make you head back to the office and start planning the upgrade project today.

If you're ready to fully shoot for the cloud and migrate off of your on-premise software to the latest and newest, then a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution is for you. You can get the cutting-edge products with no hardware costs involved. We'll go over both options during this presentation and also look at a hybrid approach of starting with IaaS and then moving to SaaS as you bring on new technologies or sunset existing legacy systems.

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.”

 Baha Mar's All in Bet on Red: The Story of Integrating Data and Master Data with PBCS, FCCS, and ARCS
 Anthony ScaleseEdgewater Ranzal


Baha Mar is the Bahamas' newest luxury resort, featuring world class hotels, restaurants, shopping, spas, a golf course, and a casino. Baha Mar has gone all in, betting big on red by adopting a Planning and Budget Cloud Service (PBCS), a Financial Close and Consolidation Cloud Service (FCCS), and an Account Reconciliation Cloud Service (ARCS). Within PBCS, Baha Mar has implemented daily operational reporting (DOR), which captures daily activity across the entire property. 

In this session, we will explore how, and more importantly, why FDMEE (on-premises) was used in favor of cloud data management. We will cover the myriad of disparate and highly specialized data sources needed to support loading detailed operational data on a daily basis. We will study the various methodologies used to streamline data integration and enrich the data load cycle. 

Additionally, we will discuss how EDMCS and cloud data management were leveraged to reduce duplicate master data maintenance while sharing key findings about this exciting new cloud service. 

Did Baha Mar win big? Attend this webinar to find out!

 Getting on Base with OAC
 Nick Scott

  Essbase: What Is It, Technically?
  Dave Stark and Doug Pearce, Analysis Team, Inc.

Imagine you’ve just been assigned the role of business SME or IT analyst in an Essbase implementation project. Or maybe you’ve been designated to be administrator for an Essbase solution that your colleagues rely on for business-critical analysis and reporting. As a user, you generally know what Essbase is, but now you have to learn about how it works “under the hood.” You need to know what’s really behind the magic of the Essbase cube. 

This session is for anyone who’s new (or newish) to Essbase. We’ll help you understand the main components of Essbase and how they come together in a complete production solution. We’ll cover the key features and functions - Outlines, Load Rules, Calc Scripts, write-back, process automation, and drill-through, among others. In addition, we’ll discuss how Essbase cloud (OAC) is different from on-premise Essbase, describing a few popular reporting tools. The main objective of this session is to provide a functionality overview, which can serve as a roadmap for learning the technical details of Essbase solution development.
