Playing Well with Others: Integrating HFM with Essbase, Planning, and Other Systems

Co-presenter(s): Alice Lawrence, Walmart International with Keith Berry, US-Analytics
When: Jun 22, 2015, Session 2, 9:45 am – 10:45 am
Topic: Financial Close – Subtopic: HFM

Integrating HFM with Planning or Essbase is one of the biggest challenges for most EPM implementations. HFM consolidations are unique. This session will highlight the key differences between how HFM handles data vs. Planning and Essbase. Key design decisions can make sharing HFM translations and eliminations easy or a complete nightmare. This session will highlight those key decisions, offer design alternatives, and help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of each alternative. Whether you work with HFM, Essbase, or another system, attending this session will give you the insight to work productively with other application experts, avoid a siloed HFM design, and effectively share data.

Cash Rich, Forecasting Poor

Presenter: Brian Marshall, US-Analytics
When: Jun 22, 2015, Session 4, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Topic: Planning – Subtopic: Other Planning

In many Hyperion Planning applications, cash flow is overlooked or left out of the forecast. But many well-run companies manage their Treasury operations strategically. They need to manage their cash flow and forecasting on a daily basis, and the absence of a strong cash management approach to Hyperion is a financial risk. This session will focus on one client’s approach, with a demo of an application where cash is king.

Voiding Your Warranty: The Planning Repository Exposed

Presenter: Brian Marshall, US-Analytics
When: Jun 23, 2015, Session 7, 11:15 am – 12:15 pm
Topic: Planning – Subtopic: Optimization

Hyperion Planning provides an excellent platform for deploying enterprise-scale budgeting and forecasting solutions. Let’s take that world-class solution and peel the warranty label off so we can have some real fun. Learn how to delete years from the past, remove dimensions you no longer use or need, and report on secured objects and who is doing what on your applications. This session will also provide a primer to the Planning Repository and a variety of queries for attendees to take home and leave Oracle with an uneasy feeling that more support tickets could result from this session.
