What You Need to Know Before Starting an Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud Implementation

Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud - What You Need to Know Before Starting an Implementation Thank you to Kash Mohammadi for the presentation on this topic. All aspects of EPM Cloud operations are documented in the EPM Cloud Operations Guide. Updates and Patches In general, updates are applied to EPM Cloud test environments on the first Friday of every month, and the production environments on the third Friday. The application of customer updates is automated and synchronized. Artifact Lifecycle Management Migrating artifacts like forms and business rules from Test to the Production environment, and cloning from Production back to Test are self-service operations in EPM Cloud. The user interface provides this functionality. The EPM Automate command line can be used to automate the process. For more information, refer to Administering Migration for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud. Automation EPM Automate is a command line tool that provides a rich set of commands to automate various tasks on the service. The same commands are also exposed as a set of EPM Cloud REST APIs. Monitoring Performance, Usage and Compliance The Activity Report, which is automatically generated every day, enables Service Administrators to understand application usage. It also helps streamline application design by identifying calculation scripts and user requests that impact application performance. Additionally, the report may be used to compare service usage and performance to those available in a report from the past. Refer to the following for more information: Viewing and Downloading Activity Reports and Access Logs Security Compliance Role Assignment Report EPM Automate Troubleshooting EPM Cloud Operations Guide provides help to self-diagnose issues and provide all information to Oracle if the issue cannot be resolved.

New Hands-on Tutorials for Financial Consolidation and Close (FCCS)

We are pleased to announce the availability of the following new Hands-on Tutorials for Financial Consolidation and Close: Tutorials provide instructions with sequenced videos and documentation to help you learn a topic.These tutorials, among others, are available on the Help Center. Creating Consolidation Rules With Partner Elimination in Financial Consolidation and Close Configurable Consolidation rules with partner eliminations enable you to write data directly to a sibling of the entity currently being consolidated, if the sibling is its intercompany partner, or if one of the sibling’s descendants is its intercompany partner.   Using Year-To-Date Values in Configurable Consolidation Rules in Financial Consolidation and Close If required by your business calculations, you can create Configurable Consolidation rules that are sourced from an account's year-to-date movement values, rather than the current period movement value.   Calculating Movements From Closing Balances in Financial Consolidation and Close Your business process may require you to load period-end account balances, rather than current period movements. If you enable the Calculate Movements system rule, you can load period end closing balances to the Closing Balance Input member, and the rule will calculate a specified current period movement.   Viewing, Updating, and Adding Tasks in Task Manager Task Manager helps you define, execute, and report on the interdependent activities of a business process. It provides centralized monitoring of all tasks and provides a visible, automated, repeatable system of record for running a business process. This hands-on tutorial shows you how to view and update tasks in Task Manager. You’ll also see how to view dashboard data and task manager reports. Finally, learn how to add tasks to schedules.   Reviewing, Updating, and Analyzing Supplemental Data in Financial Consolidation and Close Supplemental Data Manager helps you organize, update, edit, and manage supplemental data, typically financial transactions. It provides a robust ad hoc data collection process useful for footnotes, disclosures, and supporting details. It extends data collection to include transactional details for the consolidated balances within your business process. This hands-on tutorial shows you how to enter and update supplemental data. You also see how to filter supplemental data task lists, view the dashboards and data collections.

The Hyperion Product Management recently advised the release of Patch Set Updates (PSU) for Oracle Hyperion Essbase 11.1.2.4.x. These PSU downloads are available from the  My Oracle Support > Patches & Updates section. Hyperion Essbase Server 11.1.2.4.041 31585470 - HYPERION ESSBASE SERVER 11.1.2.4.041 Hyperion Essbase Client 11.1.2.4.041 31585476 - HYPERION ESSBASE RTC 11.1.2.4.041 31585473 - HYPERION ESSBASE CLIENT 11.1.2.4.041 31585472 - HYPERION ESSBASE CLIENT MSI 11.1.2.4.041 Hyperion Analytic Provider Services 11.1.2.4.041 31585459 - HYPERION ANALYTIC PROVIDER SERVICES   README FILE: Refer to the Readme files prior to proceeding with these PSU implementations for important information that includes the supported paths per component, along with a full list of the defects fixed, additional support information, prerequisites, details for applying patch and troubleshooting FAQ's. It is important to ensure that the requirements and support paths to this patch are met as outlined within the Readme file. The Readme file is available from the Patches & Updates download screen for each of the Hyperion Essbase components. Recommendations: Caution: Oracle recommends using the same version of all Essbase portfolio products (Essbase, Essbase Administration Services, Hyperion Provider Services, and Essbase Studio) and components (server, client, runtime client, API, and JAPI). When only some Essbase portfolio products are included in a patch release, the last released versions of the products that are not included in the patch are supported. Essbase Administration Services 11.1.2.4.037, Provider Services 11.1.2.4.041, and Essbase Studio 11.1.2.4.031 are supported for use with Essbase 11.1.2.4.041.  Furthermore, Essbase Runtime Client needs to be updated on systems that Essbase Administration Services is installed starting with this patch. Recommendation: After you apply a patch within the same release codeline, Oracle recommends as a best practice that you export the data from your databases, clear the data from the databases, and then reload the data. ========================================================================================= For your references: Available Patch Sets and Patch Set Updates for Oracle Hyperion Essbase Doc ID 1396084.1 Oracle EPM System Documentation

Using Custom Images for Heat Maps Need to see what’s happening in your supply chain?  Or wondering where to put outdoor dining tables for the best blend of safety and satisfaction?  This release enables you to import your own image as a layer in a heat map and define the areas to analyze, creating a dynamic visualization specific to your company’s needs.  These newly available heat map capabilities support unlimited use cases for connecting analysis to maps, blueprints, diagrams, and images that represent your business. ======================================================================================== What's New in 5.8.0 Visualization Consistent legend properties across visualizations      Image backgrounds for heat maps      Single header on all pages      Toggle "Use as Filter" on visualization Pixel-Perfect Reporting Additional data model validation messages XML data pruning Data Sources Enhanced Essbase database connections Enrichments for live data sets Query data models remotely General Product Updates Customized time-zone setting Propagate shared folder permissions to associated artifacts Support for token based authentication for embedded Oracle Analytics content User and role management enhancements   What's Fixed in 5.8?

Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud - Using Lifecycle Management and the Importance of Backups

Migration and Backups in EPM Cloud Thank you to Bill Fox for his presentation on this topic! Migration enables you to perform Lifecycle Management activities within Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud services other than Narrative Reporting. A good backup is very important because it is the most efficient way to migrate environments and can restore the environment to a known state. It is important to note that the backup is the responsibility of the customer. Please refer to excerpt 2.2 of the Oracle Cloud Hosting and Delivery Policies.   Most efficient way to migrate environments Migrate to different ID Domain Migrate from Legacy to EPM Enterprise Migrate from Test to Production And from Production to Test Create Archive of important snapshots Create DR Standby Environments   Migrating from Legacy EPM Cloud to EPM Enterprise / EPM Standard:     Migration and Considerations for URLs: Remember, when migrating snapshots to a new location, the URL will be different. Change URL references for: EPM Automate Scripts REST APIs User Access Smart View Connections Data Loads Note: Instead of hard-coding URLs, it might be better to access them referentially by variable. Then all you need to do is change the value of the variable.   Migrating from Hyperion On-premises to EPM Cloud Migrate Planning to Cloud Migrate Financial Management Cloud Migrate Financial Close Management to Cloud (Account Reconciliation) Migrate Profitability and Cost Management to Cloud Migrate Strategic Finance to Strategic Modeling Cloud Migrate Data Relationship Management to Cloud (Enterprise Data Management   Migration Resources: Administering Migration for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud Back up Application Snapshot to a Computer Clone an Environment (Not  Narrative reporting) Performing Backup and Restore (Narrative Reporting)   Check out the presentation for details on the following migration resources: Migration Resources: Narrative Reporting: Migration Resources: Tax Reporting & Financial Consolidation and Close Migration Resources: Planning / Modules, Profitability & Cost Management Migration Resources: Enterprise Data Management & Account Reconciliation ====================================================================================================== REFERENCES: Presentation - presented by Bill Fox Oracle Cloud Hosting and Delivery Policy Administering Migration for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud Back up Application Snapshot to a Computer Clone an Environment (Not  Narrative reporting) Performing Backup and Restore (Narrative Reporting)

How to Integrate Essbase Analytics Link (EAL) 11.1.2.2.500 with Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) 11.2

How to Integrate Essbase Analytics Link (EAL) 11.1.2.2.500 with Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) 11.2 Thank you to Ilya Tebelev for contributing to this post! General notes: Deployment of EAL on WebLogic 12C with Java 1.8 (used by EPM 11.2) is not successful. Therefore, EAL 11.1.2.2.500 does not work with EPM 11.2. EAL is officially supported on EPM 11.1 using WebLogic 11G and Java 1.6. Development of EAL is not active, so I tried to find workaround to make EAL work with EPM 11.2. The workaround is: prepare a standalone machine that is dedicated to an EAL 11.1.2.2.500 installation on EPM 11.1 WebLogic domain with EPM 11.1 HSS and HFM Clients, but make sure the database of this EPM 11.1 installation points to the database repository of EPM 11.2. EAL must be deployed as a server on the EPM 11.1 WebLogic domain and must use Shared Services and HFM APIs (that is a part of Foundation Services Java Web Applications and HFM Management SDK deployment on WebLogic) of EPM 11.1 to communicate with EPM 11.2. EAL security and provisioning will be done by Shared Services 11.2, identified by "Shared Services and a Registry database" that is pointed by the local EPM 11.1HSS Client configuration. EAL 11.1.2.2.500, unlike previous versions of product, can communicate with only one HFM Server that is registered in Shared Services where the EAL managed by. In our case it will be HFM 11.2 that is registered with HSS 11.2 as part of EPM 11.2.   EPM 11.1.2.4.xxx installation: * Use the latest version of EPM 11.1.2.4 available on MOS Foundation Services Client installation:   HFM Client installation:   EPM 11.1 Configuration: Configure: Hyperion Foundation Common Settings Database Deploy to Application Server Financial Management Configure the Shared Services database to point to a previously installed and configured EPM 11.2 Shared Services database (where HFM Server 11.2 is registered) On the following screen, un-check Create of Windows Services for configured components, as it will not run.   Deploy a new Web Server locally. It will install the WebLogic Server locally with the EPM 11.1 domain.   Deploy Foundation Services on WebLogic locally. It will deploy Foundation Services 11.1 libraries that will allow to EAL communicate with HSS of EPM 11.2. Finish Configuration of EPM 11.1.2.4.   Install HFM 11.1 Patch Set Update (to allow integration with EAL): * Installed HFM PSU should be not older then Patch Set Update 20455650 CMD>cd "C:\Oracle\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\OPatch" CMD>opatch apply 28511735 -oh C:\Oracle\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1 -jre C:\Oracle\Middleware\jdk160_35   Install and Configure EAL: Install EAL in the regular way. Here are some important points regarding EAL installation and configuration. Installation of EAL: Choose a local WebLogic directory. Configuration of EAL: Note: Local Web Logic Admin Server has to run Provide local WebLogic Server details:   Provide credentials for HSS in EPM 11.2, but local EPM (i.e., 11.1) instance Home. ============================================================================================ References: Enterprise Performance Management - Main Documentation

You can only apply this patch to release 11.1.2.4.000, or any 11.1.2.4.1xx PSU release.   Required Patches: Oracle Hyperion Shared Services patches through 11.1.2.4.002, 11.1.2.4.005, 11.1.2.4.006, 11.1.2.4.008, or 11.1.2.4.009. Oracle Hyperion Essbase Server 11.1.2.4.014, 11.1.2.4.018, 11.1.2.4.019, 11.1.2.4.021, 11.1.2.4.022 or 11.1.2.4.033. Oracle Hyperion Essbase RTC 11.1.2.4.014, 11.1.2.4.018, 11.1.2.4.019, 11.1.2.4.021, 11.1.2.4.022 or 11.1.2.4.033. Oracle Hyperion Essbase Administration Services 11.1.2.4.014, 11.1.2.4.016, 11.1.2.4.020, 11.1.2.4.022 or 11.1.2.4.031. Oracle Hyperion Analytic Provider Services 11.1.2.4.014, 11.1.2.4.018, 11.1.2.4.020, 11.1.2.4.022 or 11.1.2.4.033. Note that for Essbase, versions 11.1.2.4.015, 11.1.2.4.016, 11.1.2.4.017, 11.1.2.4.025, 11.1.2.4.026, and 11.1.2.4.036 have known issues for Profitability and Cost Management and are not supported. Get the patches on My Oracle Support.  Start with a supported version of Essbase Server, then match the versions as nearly as possible across all other components. For example, if you install the 11.1.2.4.033 Essbase Server patch, you should also install the 11.1.2.4.033 Essbase RTC and Analytic Provider Services patches, and the 11.1.2.4.031 Essbase Administration Services patch.   Required User Rights: The user applying the patch should be the user who was set up to install and configure EPM System products. Required user privileges or rights: Windows: Use the user account that has Local administrator rights and was set up for installation and configuration. This user is an administrator and is the same for all EPM System products. Assign local policies if required by the product. Such assignments typically are: “Act as part of the operating system, Bypass traverse checking, Log on as a batch job, Log on as a service.” UNIX/Linux: Use the account that was used to install EPM System products and has Read, Write, and Execute permissions on $MIDDLEWARE_HOME. If you installed other Oracle products, the user who installed EPM System products must be in the same group as the user who installed the other Oracle products. OPatches are not intended to be applied using a root user.   New Features in this Release: Check the readme   Defects Fixed in this Release: 30859186 - In Template Export for Management Ledger applications, the name of the Essbase Cluster used by the application is no longer exported in the template.  This allows an application to more easily be imported into a new environment with a different Essbase Cluster name, which may be important for forward migrations, e.g. to Profitability and Cost Management 11.2.x, or to Profitability and Cost Management Cloud. 31486427 - When running Standard Profitability calculations for multiple POVs concurrently, sometimes the calculation scripts for one of the POVs could execute out of order, causing wrong or missing calculated results.  Calculation scripts for concurrent POV calculations will always run in the correct order now. ==========================================================================   For more information: Available Patch Sets and Patch Set Updates for Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Products (Doc ID 1400559.1) Available Patch Sets and Patch Set Updates for Oracle Crystal Ball, DRM, FCM, HPCM, and HSF 11.1.x (Doc ID 1525518.1) The patch install reviews and other patch related information can viewed within the My Oracle Support Communities - Hyperion Patch Reviews
