Learn the Latest in Planning, PBCS, and HFM

Check out US-Analytics' featured EPM sessions:

PBCS Is Still Hyperion Planning with Brian Marshall

When: Jun 28, 2016, Session 9, 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Topic: EPM Applications - Subtopic: Planning

With Oracle’s release of PBCS, many services companies have started releasing their one-size-fits-all implementations. The unfortunate truth is that PBCS is still Hyperion Planning. This presentation discusses the best practices around implementing PBCS and how to avoid the pitfalls of implementations offered at insanely cheap (and underestimated) pricing. Attend this session if you don’t want to have your PBCS project “land and expand.”

The Planning Repository Revisited: Beyond the Basics with Brian Marshall

When: Jun 28, 2016, Session 10, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Topic: EPM Applications - Subtopic: Planning

If you’ve enjoyed Brian’s past presentations on the Planning repository, you will enjoy this presentation even more. We’ll take a step beyond the basics and provide a whole new set of examples that take a leap into real-world use. Whether it’s synchronizing metadata across applications or deleting dimensions, this presentation will dive deeper than ever before into the repository. But wait… there’s more. This presentation will have full samples in both Transact SQL for SQL users and PL/SQL for Oracle users. That’s two languages for the price of one (shipping and handling not included).

Automating Guarantor Non-Guarantor Financial Statements with the HFM Equity Pickup Model with Keith Berry

When: Jun 28, 2016, Session 7, 8:30 am - 9:30 am

Topic: EPM Applications - Subtopic: Financial Close

Learn how to automate Guarantor Non-Guarantor Financial Statements in HFM using the Equity Pickup Module. We’ll describe the unique challenges posed by G-NG Statements and how the EPU Module is uniquely designed to solve them. We will then delve into the EPU Module. We’ll explain how it works, provide implementation examples, and walk through several code examples. We’ll also offer tips and recommendations based on our experience working with EPU.

Data-driven Rules in HFM with Keith Berry

When: Jun 29, 2016, Session 17, 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm

Topic: EPM Applications - Subtopic: Financial Close

Learn how to write data-driven rules that respond efficiently to the data in your HFM system. Data-driven rules are fast, easy to understand, and free from unintended side effects such as data explosion. In the first part of the presentation, we'll go over how HFM processes data and why data-driven rules make sense. In the second part, we'll work through some practical examples.
