Hyperion Enterprise - Statement of direction
By Torben Hein -Oracle on Jan 27, 2012
Did you ever wonder what route your Hyperion Enterprise installation will go?
If you suspected that it has to pay its dept to nature at some point, you are right.
We now have an official answer to the question in a statement from Product Management.
See Doc ID 1396504.1
From the Document:
"As of December 2012 Oracle Hyperion Enterprise and Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Reporting will be placed on controlled availability. [...] Oracle Hyperion Enterprise and Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Reporting release 18.104.22.168 is the terminal release of these products. Support for these products will follow the published Oracle Lifetime Support Policy guidelines. "
Oracle recommends to "address financial consolidation and reporting requirements" via HFM
As HFM has been around for quite a while and Hyperion Enterprise is somewhat old(-ish) software this does not come as a surprise, since it is a long anticipated step in software development.
Having said that, it is still somewhat sad to see an old friend getting retired.
