Enterprise Performance Management Error Correction Policy

(in via Susan)

Oracle recently published the Enterprise Performance Management Error Correction Policy.  This document describes how Oracle delivers error correction (fixes) for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) in the form of Patch Sets, Patch Set Updates (PSU) and Patch Set Exceptions (PSE) for releases under Premier and Extended Support, and the grace periods for which prior Patch Sets and Patch Set Updates are eligible for correction.  The document complements the Lifetime Support and Technical Support Policies.   

For information on the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Error Correction Policy, visit the My Oracle Support articles:

Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Software Error Correction Policy
Doc ID 1617238.1

Oracle Enterprise Performance Management 11g Grace Periods for Error Correction
Doc ID 1590676.1

Understanding the Error Correction Policy and the related grace periods is important when planning a proactive maintenance strategy.  Within the lifecycle of a release, each version has a specific end of corrective maintenance as defined by the “grace period end date.”  Please note that the new policy supersedes and extends the grace periods specified at the end of the Hyperion tables in the Lifetime Support Policy.
