The Essbase Integration Services product has reached its final stage.
EIS has mapped many a relational Database into Essbase and made seamless integration and drill through easy to achieve and maintain.
Oracle Essbase Integration Services Statement of Direction
The details state that EIS 126.96.36.199 is the final release of EIS and it will not be shipped from version 188.8.131.52 on.
Oracle will continue to support Hyperion Essbase Integration Services in accordance with the Lifetime Support Policy .
It does not come as a surprise that the evolution of Enterprise Performance Management System (EPM) required a new and more powerful system. It was now necessary to also tie in Planning and HFM databases, so a new technology emerged:
Now that Essbase Studio has been on the market for some time and has been well adopted by a larger customer base, it is time to move from EIS to Studio within the next few releases.
Yet - be aware that the way that Studio works is different than EIS, so it is recommended prior use to review the Essbase Studio User Guide.
