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

Which is why this blog post might be considered “old news,” but those that are ramping up for budget season might benefit from the reminder.

In this blog post, we’ll cover a PBCS update that dates back to February 2018.
