I’m on the Oracle EPM Cloud… Why Would I Need Managed Services?

Not having to deal with infrastructure is probably a huge reason for your organization moving to the cloud. You no longer have to worry about supporting hardware for mission-critical EPM systems.

Before you plan your dream vacation with this newfound freedom, check your to-do list for the maintenance activities that still need to be completed.

Is the End Nigh? What's Really Going On With Hyperion On-Prem Support

Another ODTUG Kscope has ended, and, if you didn’t make it to San Antonio for Kscope this year, you missed some big news: premier support for Oracle’s suite of on-premises Hyperion tools will end in 2030.
