PBCS Data Backup and Recovery Scenarios [Tutorial]

Recently, I created several types of backups and recovering methods using the applications snapshots, PBCS exports, and Essbase Data Export business rules to export and import data.

The application exports data in a formatted file in a way that another application can read it and use the data. This typically requires adjusting for naming conventions. We can do this in SQL and in FDMEE. If it’s straightforward — like for recovering data or for migrating data into a different environment — then the Essbase data export will work.
