Essbase Day – Sponsored by Applied OLAP, Hosted by ODTUG!

Essbase 21c is here and we are celebrating by providing more than just great content! Play throughout the day as we honor how far Essbase has come since the early '90s. During session breaks we'll have trivia questions and a 1993 pop-culture-inspired scavenger hunt sponsored by Applied OLAP. You can earn points by gathering items from around your home related to certain pop phenomena. Get creative—you can earn bonus points for collecting multiple items in each category. The point leader and two runners-up will be awarded Mastercard gift cards and some great Dodeca swag. Don't forget to bring what you find to the networking event for a little show and tell.

All customers should be planning their migration to this latest release, and there are many benefits to discuss! customers will learn about the new Essbase platform and its features. In addition, we will discuss how we have eased your migration by offering EAS "lite" and Shared Services Security management. Customers on OCI will hear about the latest cloud infrastructure developments and Essbase enhancements. We will cover a brief roadmap of 21c uptake in the EPM product suite and non-Linux platform support for 21c Essbase.

CPE session, Fulfill the True Potential of Essbase with Hybrid Mode and Cube Designer

4:05 – 5:05 p.m. EST 

Believe it or not, Hybrid Mode in Essbase—which brings together the rich, intuitive calculation capability of Block Storage and the dynamic aggregation capability of Aggregate Storage—is almost seven years old! But in earlier on-premises versions, Hybrid limitations such as unsupported calculation functions sometimes made it difficult for practitioners to take full advantage. In Essbase 21c, we have "full coverage" Hybrid Mode. We also have brand new Cube Designer tools (the Baseline and Solve Order utilities) that help to document performance parameters, find the optimal balance between calculation and query speed, and catch potential performance problems. In this session, we'll review the principles of Hybrid Mode and learn how Cube Designer can help with Hybrid optimization.

Networking Fun
5:05 – 6:00 p.m. EST

Join the networking fun! Applied OLAP will be awarding the point leader and two runners-up Mastercard gift cards and some great Dodeca swag. Remember, come camera ready with all of your scavenger hunt items in your video frame! A Zoom link to attend the networking event will be provided throughout the day in the session chat.
