HFM: Deciding on Your Next Steps

In the past couple of years, Oracle has been addressing its future plans for on-prem, and there’s a lot to consider — especially with regard to Hyperion Financial Management (HFM).

The new version of Hyperion (11.2) was set to be released in early 2019, but we have yet to hear any news. With ODTUG Kscope19 just around the corner, we're expecting to hear something very soon, which is why we decided to update this blog post. 

Based on previous roadmaps from Oracle, all of the on-prem tools, including HFM, will be enhanced with new features and functions based on customer feedback. And HFM’s loyal fanbase can rest assured that it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

When Should You Upgrade to Oracle Hyperion

Posted by US-Analytics   |   Upgrades & Migrations,   |   Oracle FDMEE

Companies today are facing difficult decisions with timing their upgrades for Oracle Hyperion EPM environments as well as the supporting operating systems, browsers, and office applications. So how do you figure out when you should upgrade to Hyperion

The Problem

Many IT departments are coming to terms with the fact that Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 lost Mainstream Support as of January 13, 2015. Currently, their only option for support from Microsoft is through Extended Support, which is expensive and should only be used as a short-term migration strategy. Along the same lines, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 also lost Mainstream Support as of July 8, 2014, with Extended Support only available. Consequently, IT departments throughout the world are making plans to migrate to Windows Server 2012 R2 and SQL Server 2012.
