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. The PBCS data export will also work if we’re looking for a non-technical approach. These methods enable the two systems to share the same data.

In searching for the best method, I’ve found a few different options. In this blog post, I’ll show you the business case for PBCS data backup and recovery, along with how to execute several of these techniques.

PBCS Tutorial: New Rules Usage Report & Suppressed Row Members

Kscope18: To Infinity & Beyond

Now that we’ve had time to sleep and rest our feet, it’s time to reflect on Kscope18. A few things stick out right off the bat — Disney, puppies, and (of course) our people.

Our team members made some huge strides (like becoming an Oracle ACE Associate), which we’ll brag about below. In this blog post, we’ll cover what we did, what we loved, and what we hope to see at Kscope19.
