Advisor Webcast: Hyperion Tax Module

(in via Tanya)

Corporate income tax is one of the largest expense lines on the group income statement.

The tax expense often represents as much as 40% of total profit. Yet, the systems in use to calculate the tax provision - a key element in the financial close process - continue to be a disconnected array of point solutions and spreadsheets that lack the transparency warranted by such material numbers.

Furthermore, the tax provision continues to be a bottleneck in the financial close and consumes time that could otherwise be spent on more valuable activities such as risk analysis and tax planning.

Join us for a webcast; given by Product Management, on

Hyperion Tax Provisioning (HTP) Module
on October 8th.

It will highlight the benefits of this module and a demo will be provided.

This is your opportunity to learn about HTP and how it can benefit you and your company during the financial close process.

As always with Advisor Webcasts - you do not need a Support ID to register - you can register directly via this  webex link as well.

EPM / OBIEE on Exalytics patching Advisor Webcast

One of the frequently requested topics for Advisor Webcast sessions is "patching and maintenance of EPM".

As one of the EPM hosts, I am therefore particularly happy to announce a session that covers patching on Exalytics based on examples of OBIEE, Essbase and Times Ten.

ADVISOR WEBCAST: Exalytics Patching

17:00, Europe Time (Berlin, GMT+01:00)

16:00, GMT Time (London, GMT)

11:00, Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00)

09:00, Mountain Daylight Time (Denver, GMT-06:00)

Saresh has signed up to guide you to this Advisor Webcast.

As this was classified as a Webcast for "Oracle Engineered Systems" it does NOT show up in the usual "Oracle Business Analytics" Section of the  "Advisor Webcasts: Current Schedule and Archived recordings" KM Doc 740966.1.
Instead you find this under - you have guessed it "Oracle Engineered Systems".

You can directly jump to KM Doc 1533869.1 for more information, or even register from here without the use of KM via this link:  https://oracleaw.webex.com/oracleaw/onstage/g.php?d=595289751&t=a

So - do not miss out on this valuable session for a direct contact with our Engineers. There will be a Question & Answer Session at the end for all the unanswered things that are hard to find in the documentation.
But even if you do miss it: As with every Advisor Webcasts - the session will be recorded and you can find the content on the same KM Doc 740966.1 as the registration. We also usually create accompanying threads in the Oracle Communities that are then monitored by the presenter for later questions. So even if you can not attend the live session, your questions may be answered if you just view the recording.

Advisor Webcast - EPM Log files

This is just a quick reminder that we have another Advisor Webcast on on Thursday.

Maurice named this one "EPM Log file hide and seek", and as he acts as the automation lead for EPM in Proactive Support, he is the guy to speak to when it comes to tracking logs, registry information and configuration settings. He will give us an overview on what tools are available that can help our customers to gather as much information on their system as possible, to identify problems, provide Support with the information they need to troubleshoot and/or to simply take a snapshot of the current configuration of the EPM System, be this for backup or documentation needs.

If this got you interested, then  here is the link to our previous blogshot about it, with the register information and links.

We hope to meet you on Thursday.

ADVISOR WEBCASTS: EPM Log Hide and Seek with the PSD Team

As tracking down logfiles has become similarly difficult, Maurice has prepared two webcasts for our EPM customers, named after the childrens game "Hide and Seek".

EPM Log Hide and Seek (with Hyperion tools) March 21, 2013
EPM Log Hide and Seek (with generic Oracle tools) March 27, 2013


Both of these one-hour session are recommended for technical and functional users investigating EPM-related applications who need to find logs, process logs, analyze environments, access hidden values, and avoid wasting time by using tools written by Oracle developers. Attendees will watch the setup of Remote Diagnostic Agent, Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware, Oracle Diagnostic Framework, and JRockit Mission Control.

TOPICS WILL INCLUDE:

  • Access "obscure" logs and use tools to slice and dice them
  • Identify the strengths and weaknesses of each instrumentation tool
