Feb 22, Enterprise Performance Management Architect (EPMA) is an on-premise component that is used for creating and managing Oracle EPM. Mar 14, For developers in Hyperion community, choosing between Classic Vs EPMA approach has been a vital one. This blog gives a brief insight to. Oct 9, This particular session is aimed at developers like myself, who generally work with Oracle’s BI technology tools and are wondering how this.

Through EPMA we get facility to automate dimension update and maintain applications like Import Profiles and Application Deployment can be invoked through the EPMA batch client for an automated dimension update process.

In my case, the data that will eppma the members in my dimension is held in a flat file, to start I select the Dimension Library tool within Workspace, and create what’s called a new “profile”. As you can see from the diagram below, data and metadata from the various sources goes first into interface tables or files before being accessed by EPMA, which then takes this data, maps it and then dpma it to construct the applications that you want to create.

Make changes to member properties for selected members, copy paste also works for multiple changes. Then, in a process familiar to Warehouse Builder developers, you sample the file and go on to specify which dimension each file field refers to.

The following list gives all the possible ways that i can think of for loading data into Essbase 1. Then edit this ASO application and create the dimensions and the corresponding members as shown below After this step, go to shared services and ensure that the user with which you have logged in as has the necessary privileges to access Essbase. Hyperion tends to create lots of services anyway at last count, including Planning, there were 31 Hyperion-related services running on my Windows machine but as you can see from the screenshot above, EPM Architect and Calc Manager take up eight of their own.

I am not sure whether it was because of my environment or because of the product itself. For example, if you look at the different possible ways of loading data into Essbase, the list of options available is sometimes absolutely daunting to an extent flexibility as well especially for users who are new to the product stack. This particular session is aimed at developers like myself, who generally work with Oracle’s BI technology tools and are wondering how this “Planning” application works; how does its architecture look, what are the typical development tasks that are associated with it and how do you get data in, and out of it.

It’s probably worth taking a moment out to understand how data and metadata flows through Planning when EPMA is involved. So how do you get large amounts of dimension members into a Planning application when you are using EPMA?

Using EPMA for Managing Hyperion Planning Applications

One of the major advantages of Oracle acquiring so many companies is the fact that it integrates all the products in some fashion or the other, that too quickly. I have covered 7 of the above 8 in prior blog entries. Planning as I said stores its planning data in Essbase, additional supporting metadata orac,e relational tables, and can take data from applications, data warehouses and master oracoe management tools, or from files and other structured data sources. Planning in its standard form, there are variations for workforce and capital epm planning ships with six standard dimensions: Then once the file definition is complete, you then use the tool to define a new “data synchronization”, which maps the incoming fields to the dimensions in your application, with the remaining field containing the data for the specified account.

Then create a new Essbase ASO application.

I would go into details of how one can do data synchronization across applications using EPMA in the coming blog entries. One can use shared dimensions wherein the same dimension can be reused across applications. The “proper” way of doing it though is to use the Data Synchronizer feature within EPMA, which can bring in data from applications such as Financial Management, in the future it’ll link to Oracle GL, but for now we orale point it towards the interface tables I mentioned previously or files, as I’m going to use in the final example.

Your file needs to hold the data in a particular format see this previous posting for more details but it’s easy to understand and only takes a few minutes to set up.

This entry was posted on May 27, at 5: Getting the initial data ready for Planning is actually a two stage process; firstly, you usually want to load some initial data in, and then secondly you process, calculate and otherwise manipulate this data to allocate, for example, top-level budget figures down to individual departments based on headcount, which in classic planning applications wpma do using Hyperion Business Rules and in EPMA-managed ones, you’d use the Calc Manager.

After this step, go to shared services and ensure that the user with which you have logged in as has the necessary privileges to access Essbase.

Ensure that you convert Essbase from local authentication to External authentication. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: Note the option in the above screenshot to “auto-create local dimensions”.

I covered a basic introduction to Hyperion Planning a few months ago, where I outlined the basic idea behind the product and how it fitted into the EPM Suite framework. Planning in its standard form, there are variations for workforce and capital expenditure planning ships with six standard dimensions:. Essbase is effectively hidden under the covers at least in the current EPMA-enabled release, in previous versions you still needed to know a lot about Essbase to get it working and you use Planning, and from System 9, Enterprise Performance Manager Architect EPMA to manage applications instead.

Once the file is imported and then processed, you can then check back into the EPMA Dimension and Application libraries to see the newly created dimension members and hierarchy. This also was created as a local dimension, again using the wizard, as shown below. In the screenshot below, I’m adding a child member to the Accounts dimension: You are commenting using your Facebook account.

That is meant for the respective product administration tools. Then edit this ASO application and create the dimensions and the corresponding members as shown below.

A typical end-user session in the Planning Web Application looks like the screenshot below, note the fact that the forms of course support write-back, and its this ability for users empa submit their own numbers coupled with the workflow element of the product that sets it apart from a standard sales analysis-type Essbase application.
