EPM Workspace:One window, compete visibility: • Self-service Personalization • Contextual navigation • OBIEE and BI Publisher integration • WebCenter integration • Spans all solutions in the Oracle EPM SystemThe Web Workspace in Oracle’s EPM System, provides a single browser-based point ofentry for users, with single sign-on, contextual navigation and the ability to personalizethe interface based on the user’s role and information needs. The latest release of theEPM Workspace extends its capabilities to OBIEE and Oracle BI Publisher – so that thisinterface now spans all solutions in the EPM System.Syntelli Solutions Inc. 3 Confidential
    • Hyperion System 11 EnhancementsBusiness Value: Reduce training and deployment costs, improved user insights andproductivity.2. Better Smartview integration • Adhoc Reporting • Stylized Output: – Formats – Tables – Charts – Formulas • Data Entry and Apps Processing • Word and PPT • Now works with OBIEE as sourceSmart View for Office is Oracle’s common MS Office interface to the EPM System. Thisrelease includes new adhoc and formatted reporting capabilities for MS Excel, andextends this capability to OBIEE as a data source. So users can access all of their BI andPerformance Management information in a single MS office interface.Syntelli Solutions Inc. 4 Confidential
    • Hyperion System 11 EnhancementsBusiness Value: Leverage existing user expertise in MS Excel, Word and PowerPoint,improve user productivity by directly linking MS Office to the EPM System, reducetraining and deployment costsThis release of Smart View also provides the ability to create personalized data slices –or Smart Slices. This provides the ability for users to filter views from different sources,providing more efficient analysis capabilities.More detail: As analytic and financial databases grow in size (in respect to bothdimensionality and scope of data), it is important to provide users with a better set oftools to focus in directly on the data and type of analysis they need. In the 11.1.1.0.0release, Smart View provides the ability for admin users to model supported datasources through the Smart Slice modeling interface. This lets an admin user determinethe specific dimensionality and preferences they will make available to end users whodesire this when working with a data source.3. EPM Gadgets:Last year, Oracle introduced Smart Space, a set of Windows-based gadgets that canexpose BI content or applications functionality to users via light-weight desktop gadgetsthat can be personalized based on the role and interests of the user. The Fusion Editionrelease includes a number of UI enhancements, and new Essbase gadgets exposingadditional functionality to this interface. It also extends this capability to OBIEE and BIPublisher as data sources.Business Value: Lower training and deployment costs, improved user insights andproductivity.Syntelli Solutions Inc. 5 Confidential
    • Hyperion System 11 Enhancements4. Foundation Services Enhancements: • Common User Provisioning • Common Application Administration • New – Common Calculation Manager • New - Common Installation and Configuration • New - Common Lifecycle ManagementOracle’s EPM System includes a number of common Foundation Services that support asingle point of administration across multiple modules. Examples include Common UserProvisioning, and Common Application Administration offered via the EPM Architectmodule. This release includes a number of new Common Services including:Common Calculation Manager – a new feature of EPM Architect that provides agraphical interface for defining business rules and calculations across planning andfinancial consolidation applications.Common Installation and Configuration – single interface for installing the EPM Systemand each of the modules. This reduces the number of installation panels from almost300 to less than 10 and will simplify and speed the installation and configuration processCommon Lifecycle Management – new functionality for managing the deployment andmigration of applications between development, test and production environments.All of these new services are designed to lower the cost of administration andownership of the EPM System, and support broader deployments.Calculation Manager — is a new module of Oracle Hyperion EPM Architect, FusionEdition that you use to design, validate, and administer Oracle Hyperion FinancialManagement, Fusion Edition and Oracle Hyperion Planning, Fusion Edition businessrules within a graphical environment. You design business rules by dragging anddropping components (including formulas, scripts, conditions, ranges, and loops) into aflow chart of the business rule. The flow chart enables you to move amongst and viewthe business rules’ components by selecting them. After you select a component, youcan view and modify its properties in tabs below the flow chart. Working with businessrules and their components in a flow chart reduces the time you spend designing andmaintaining them.Calculation Manager also contains system templates that can be used in business rulesto perform calculations that, for example, allocate, aggregate, copy, and clear data. Youcan also create user-defined templates using components and other templates. SystemSyntelli Solutions Inc. 6 Confidential
    • Hyperion System 11 Enhancementsand user-defined templates enable users to reuse complex calculations in business ruleswithout having to recreate the calculations each time they want to use them.If you have several business rules you want to launch as a group, you can create abusiness ruleset for them. The business ruleset can contain business rules and otherbusiness rulesets that can be launched sequentially or simultaneously. After you designand validate business rulesets and business rules, you deploy them individually or aspart of a full application deployment to Financial Management and Planning. If youcreate shortcuts to a business rule, it can be shared across, and deployed to, multipleapplications, in addition to the application for which you designed it. Then users canlaunch the deployed rules from data forms or launch them independently from a Webbrowser.5. Lifecycle ManagementSyntelli Solutions Inc. 7 Confidential
    • Hyperion System 11 EnhancementsLifecycle Management (LCM) provides a consistent way for Hyperion administrators tomigrate applications and artifacts across product environments. The LCM graphicalinterface is provided with Oracles Hyperion® Shared Services Console. LCM alsoprovides a command-line interface.LCM features:• Browsing applications and folders• Searching for artifacts• Comparing applications and folders• Migrating an entire application or repository or individual artifacts• Application Migration Wizard: Application to Application, Application to LocalFile System,• Application to Server File System, Exported Application to Application, Savingand loading a package file• Migration Status Report• Migration Audit Report• Security – LCM Administrator role• Command Line Utility• API6. General Essbase Enhancements:This release includes a number of general enhancements to Oracle Essbase. Here are afew key examples:Varying Attributes: Until now, Oracle Essbase has been able to store and calculatemeasures by attributes, for example a product might have a Package Type attribute thatspecifies what the packaging is for the product. This enables you to report on the profitfor different package types.However, there are many cases where attributes change over a dimension such as time,or even multiple dimensions. For example, product packaging could vary over time, andover geographical markets. Essbase can now store attributes that vary over multipledimensions, and calculate measures over the varying attributes. For example, if youcreate a report that shows the Profit per package type, it will be calculated according tothe changing attributes. This means that a product that was packaged in 16 ounces inJanuary, but in May changed to a package type of 20 ounces, will contribute to thepackage group where it belonged at the time. In addition to calculating according to theactual attribute assignments, Essbase can also calculate "as was", for example calculatethe profit for the different Package type as if the assignments were at a certain point.This is setting the "perspective", essentially ignoring the change in attributes. This canbe useful if you are trying to understand how things would look if the changes to theSyntelli Solutions Inc. 8 Confidential
    • Hyperion System 11 Enhancementsattributes didnt happen. For example, to understand what would have happened if theproduct packaging didnt change, but instead stayed as it was in January.In addition to calculating over a varying attribute, Essbase can also perform memberselections based on a changing attribute, such as "give me all the products that had apackage type of 32 ounces in April.Typed Measures: Typed measures extend the analytical capabilities of Essbase beyondnumerical data to text-based content. Storage and analysis of textual content can beuseful when a cell needs to have one of a finite list of textual values; for example, aproduct may be sold in 5 different colors. The color is a typed measure whose valuemust be one of the 5 colors.Oracle Essbase Studio simplifies cube construction by delivering a single environmentfor performing tasks related to data modeling, cube designing, and analytic applicationconstruction. By consolidating cube construction activities into one interface, Studioprovides a consistent platform for building outlines and loading data.With a wizard-driven user interface, Studio supports modeling various data sourcetypes from which Oracle Essbase applications are typically built, making it a single pointfrom which all cube-related data modeling can be performed.A common metadata repository, or catalog, captures all metadata related to all OracleEssbase applications built in the enterprise and allows the reuse of metadata at thelowest level of granularity. The catalog gives Studio knowledge of the commonmetadata that is shared across the various applications enterprise-wide. This knowledgeis leveraged in supporting drill across, wherein shared context is passed from oneanalytic application to another to ensure a seamless transition during the analysisprocess.Studio supports several drill-through options such as relational databases, OracleBusiness Intelligence Enterprise Edition, URLs, custom SQL, and Java methods. Drill-through functionality is supported from data cells and member cells and is dynamicallylinked to cubes with matching metadata context.Oracle Essbase Studio also supports lineage tracking through a rich graphical view of themetadata relationships, allowing users to follow application lineages to their metadatacomponents and through to the data sources from which they were sourced.This interface assumes much of the functionality of the EAS and EIS interfaces, which arestill supported.Syntelli Solutions Inc. 9 Confidential
