The Most Awesome Planning Calculation Manager Hack the World Has Ever Seen

The most awesome? World-beating? That's mighty big talk for a webinar. Is this presentation hyperbole or fact? It's fact--cold, hard, “Just the facts, ma'am,” fact. This webinar deserves those adjectives because it will demonstrate the incredibly clever Planning Calculation Manager hack that Christian Musci and his team invented. It answers the problem the common Planning Focused Aggregation technique could never resolve--Focused Aggregations based on Planning form row and column selections. Did I mention it is a hack? And that it is awesome because it solves a problem that had no solution? And that the hackiness and the awesomeness combine and become a must-see webinar? Maybe I just did.

Join Oracle Ace Director Cameron Lackpour as he explains the genesis of his understanding of the Focused Aggregation technique, a step-by-step illustration of how it works, its superiority to generic aggregations, the seemingly insolvable problem of Planning not passing row and column selections to Calculation Manager, and finally the beyond-awesome hack that solves this problem. It is an awesome hack.

With this last bit of the Focused Aggregation puzzle, applications that simply couldn't work, or could only work in a crippled manner through administrative aggregations that robbed Planning of its real-time nature, now quite simply do work. Yes, it's that good and it's easy. All will be revealed in a step-by-step process that will allow you to make your "too big" Planning application "just right.”
