Kscope 16 EPM Sessions You Don’t Want To Miss.
It’s that time of year again. #Kscope16 is upon us and there are so many excellent sessions it will be tough to make it to everything I want to attend. Therefore this year, being someone who’s aligned with the Traditional side which includes APEX, Database and Development, and ADF, I decided to look at the EPM tracks. I often tell everyone I can spell Essbase, but that’s about it. PBCS, HFM, EPMA, OFMA, SmartView, ASO and BSO. How do they keep all that together? Whaaaaaaaa??
Fortunately this year, we have a New Oracle Professionals track and I’m gonna fake like I’m new in the EPM world and check out A Tour of the Oracle EPM/BI Landscape, at Glenn Schwartzberg’s Sunday Symposium session. Check out more of them here.
Once I get up to speed on EPM and what they do, I’m going to check out my buddy David Schleis on Monday. He’s a database guy, but facilitating a Hands On Lab entitled Groovy Fundamentals for EPM People. I hear Groovy is the hot thing to learn. It’s in ADF. You can use it in ODI, and David is facilitating the lab. This is guaranteed to be time well spent.
Every year, the team from Oracle is pushing out something new for us to play with … I mean develop with on the APEX platform. On Tuesday, Jorge Rimblas, an APEX guy and Sarah Zumbrum from the EPM side join forces to talk about APEX and Essbase: Together at Last. With APEX being a development tool for the Oracle RDBMS and Essbase being an MDBMS the combination of these two should prove to be very powerful. Jorge and Sarah are okay too 🙂
Finally, in keeping with my Database roots, and a newfound love/hate relationship with Oracle Enterprise Manager, yet still learning about EPM stuff, I can’t miss Kellyn Pot’Vin Gorman and John Booth on Thursday’s Deep Dive: EPM Monitoring Deep Dive: Ensure You Have a Check Engine Light, Speedometer, and Fuel Gauge.
As you can see, Kscope has it all. You can be a purist and just stick with you know and are comfortable with, or check out some of these sessions that are integrating our EPM and Database tracks. This is that leading edge stuff that you take back to the office and:
