Oracle Hyperion applications - Essbase, Planning and Financial Management (Consolidation) - are the most widely-used financial analytic applications in the world. They all experience extreme peaks in usage, primarily during period-end close. Few corporate IT operations provision enough server capacity to provide good response time to Finance Departments during these close periods, which tends to make a challenging time even more difficult. Because of these factors, Hyperion applications are ideally suited for cloud computing in an enterprise setting. Join Larry Hill from Full 360 to discuss his firm’s deep experience with the benefits and best practices related to this or key workload running in the Amazon cloud.

  • 1. Oracle Hyperion in the Cloud
  • 2. Agenda• Background• The State of Hyperion - 2012• Why Run Hyperion in the Cloud?• Hyperion in the Cloud Use Cases• Full 360 Client Experiences• Q&A
  • 3. Full 360 Inc.• Consultancy & Systems Integrator ﹣ 15 years – Hyperion applications ﹣ Analytic Data Warehousing and BI ﹣ Experts in Essbase, Planning and HFM• Inaugural AWS Solution Provider ﹣ Working with AWS since 2007 ﹣ First Hyperion EPM Images on AWS - 2009 ﹣ Named 1 of 15 Premiere AWS Partners• Clients ﹣ Past: Deutsche Bank, Citibank, JPM Chase, CIT Group… ﹣ Current: BofA/Merrill Lynch, HBO, Jefferies & Co., Guy Carpenter/MMC, Chubb, Toyota ﹣ Cloud: American Airlines, MIMAARTS
  • 4. The State of Hyperion - 2012• Market Leader in EPM ﹣ Multi-dimensional Analysis (Essbase) ﹣ Budgeting/Planning/Forecasting (Planning) ﹣ Financial Consolidation (Financial Management) ﹣ Reporting/Analysis (Financial Reporting, OBIEE)• Performance Concerns ﹣ Multi-dimensional “Cubes” require large servers ﹣ Oracle recommends against VMWare environment ﹣ Limited additional server power for period-ends• Conflicting Finance – IT Priorities ﹣ Peak Performance vs. Cost Control ﹣ Critical-situation response vs. Systematic Support ﹣ Limited user visibility into system processes
  • 5. State of Hyperion – 2012, Con’t• Hyperion is “A Horse of A Different Color” to IT ﹣ Essbase is very different from Relational databases ﹣ Script-based process automation and ETL ﹣ No Version Control, Change Management ﹣ Admin skills not readily transferable from traditional IT• Hyperion Cloud Adoption is Lagging - IT is evaluating, testing, piloting other applications first - Finance still has Security Concerns - Hyperion application migration to the Cloud is behind the market
  • 6. Why run Hyperion in the Cloud?• Excellent Security• Lower Cost• Agility ﹣ The Ability to move faster and more effectively than traditional methods• Elasticity ﹣ Cloud-speak for Flexibility in all Dimensions• World-wide Reach• Shared Control between Finance and IT 6
  • 7. Amazon Security StandardsCertifications Physical Security HW, SW, Network SOC 1 Type 2 Datacenters in Systematic change (formerly SAS-70) nondescript facilities management ISO 27001 Physical access Phased updates strictly controlled deployment PCI DSS for EC2, S3, EBS, VPC, RDS, Must pass two-factor Safe storage ELB, IAM authentication at decommission least twice for floor FISMA Moderate Automated access Compliant Controls monitoring and self- Physical access audit HIPAA & ITAR Compliant logged and audited Advanced network Architecture protection
  • 8. Networking & Security AWS Direct Amazon Virtual Dedicated Connect Private Cloud (VPC) Instances Single Tenant Compute InstanceInternetDedicated connection Private VPN Amazon EC2 between your connection to your resources running ondatacenter and AWS AWS resources private hardware
  • 9. Full 360 Security/Backup Best Practices• Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) ﹣ VPC = Cloud extension of Virtual Private Network (VPN) ﹣ Extends your Firewall out into the Amazon Cloud• Backup/Disaster Recovery ﹣ AWS “Snapshot” of entire server: OS, Application, Disk ﹣ Saved to different Amazon Datacenter (Availability Zone) ﹣ Subsequent snapshots only of changed blocks ﹣ Can restore as a complete image as of a particular snapshot ﹣ Can also backup selectively to S3, file by file
  • 10. Recent Amazon History• “Everything Fails, All the Time” ﹣ So plan for Disaster in order to Avoid it• 3 Outages in past two years in the U.S. ﹣ Single “Availability Zone” out of 13• Full 360 Clients utilizing Backup/Recovery Best Practices ﹣ Re-started most recent Backup copy in different AZ ﹣ Some didn’t notice outage ﹣ Most down less than 1 hour ﹣ Longest outage 4 hours
  • 11. Why run Hyperion in the Cloud?• Excellent Security• Lower Cost• Elasticity• Agility• World-wide Reach• Shared Control between Finance and IT 11
  • 12. Total Cost of Ownership• No/Low Capital Outlay ﹣ On-demand Hyperion-class servers start at $.26/hour ($188/month) ﹣ 1-, 3-year Reserve Instance is $276 up-front, $.16/hour ﹣ Disk is $100-125/month per Terabyte• “Infrastructure for the same cost as Servers” ﹣ Server is only 30-50% of the fully-loaded cost ﹣ AWS Price is for ALL infrastructure – not just server ﹣ IDC Study – 70% Savings with AWS ﹣ FTSE 10 Bank Example – 89% lower cost for Essbase Servers• Bring Your Own Hyperion License ﹣ Most Oracle licensing is user-based: don’t care where server is ﹣ Existing Hyperion license easily applied to Cloud ﹣ VERY favorable comparison to Oracle-on-Demand, Oracle Cloud• Amazon Total Cost of Ownership Calculator ﹣ http://aws.amazon.com/tco-calculator
