Video: Hyperion Metadata Integration | Giampaoli and Radtke

This 2 Minute Tech Tip by Oracle ACE Associates Rodrigo Radtke and Ricardo Giampaoli is based on recent article they wrote for OTN.

These gentlemen have earned themselves a reputation for real innovation and expertise in the OTN BI community, especially among those working with Hyperion. In fact, Rodrigo and Ricardo are the "two guys from Brazil" who are mentioned at about 1:45 into the conversation among 5 other BI pros in the third segment of the OTN ArchBeat ODI and the Evolution of Data Integration podcast, recorded at Oracle OpenWorld 2014.


The white paper Ricardo mentions at the end of the tip -- the one this tip is based on -- is available here: Dynamic Integrations for Multiple Hyperion Planning Applications.

You'll find more insight from Rodrigo and Ricardo on their DEV EPM blog, and you can connect with them through the links below.

Podcast Show Notes: Customizing the Oracle EBS User Experience

The latest OTN ArchBeat series is a 3-part discussion of the various options for customizing the Oracle E-Business Suite user experience. The topic was suggested, and panel members selected, by Oracle ACE Monty Latiolais, who took on the guest producer role for this series. Here's how Monty pitched the idea to the panelists:

"The discussion [centers] around the different options EBS customers have to customize and tailor the EBS user experience. Some customers prefer Application Express, others are most productive using Excel. Still others prefer tradition Forms or Oracle Business Intelligence to work with their EBS data. We look to discuss the benefits of each option. No longer does EBS need to be a 'one size fits all' solution."
