Posted in 2015, ACE, EPM, KScope 15 with tags , , , , , , on December 31, 2015 by radk00

Hi all readers! Another year has gone and it was a great (if not the greatest) year for DEVEPM! We have done a lot of cool stuff this year like get nominated for the Oracle ACE Program, being at Kscope15, 2MTT for Oracle OTN, created articles for ODTUG’s Techinical Journal and Oracle OTN, got selected (twice) for Kscope16 and even Ricardo got married this year! An of course a lot of other EPM related topics 🙂

I would like to thank each one of you for accessing/reading/sharing our blog posts! I hope that we could positively impact your lives somehow with any of our post. That’s the reason why we blog: we want to somehow share our knowledge back to the community that always helped us in difficult times!

And 2016 will be no different! We will work even harder to bring new content about EPM world for you! Thanks again and see you soon!!!!

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 25,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

DEVEPM will be at KScope 16!!!

Hi all, how are you doing? We are very happy to announce that, not one, but TWO presentations were approved for KScope 16! Here they are:

1) Incredible ODI tips to work with Hyperion tools that you ever wanted to know
“ODI is an incredible and flexible development tool that goes beyond simple data integration. But most of its development power comes from outside the box ideas.
Did you ever wanted to dynamically run any number of “OS” commands using a single ODI component?
Did you ever wanted to have only one datastore and loop different sources without the need of different ODI contexts?
Did you ever wanted to have only one interface and loop any number of ODI Objects with a lot of control?
Did you ever need to have a “Third Command Tab” in your procedures or KMs to improve ODI powers?
Did you still use an old version of ODI and miss a way to know the values of the Variables in a scenario execution?
Did you know that ODI has 4 “Substitution Tags”? And do you know how useful they are?
Do you use “Dynamic Variables” and know how powerful they can be?
Do you know how to have control over you ODI priority jobs automatically? (Stop, Start and Restart scenarios)
If you want to know the answer of all this questions please join us in this session to learn the special secrets of ODI that will take your development skills to the next level.”

The idea behind this presentation is to show the main secrets we use daily basis to improve code quality and re-use, as well explain why and what more we could do with each of the tips we will present. It’ll be a extreme helpful presentation with a lot of cools stuff and real life example.

2) Take a peek at a smart EPM global environment
“In a fast-moving business environment, finance leaders are successfully leveraging technology advancements to transform their finance organizations and generate value for the business.
Oracle’s enterprise performance management (EPM) applications are an integrated, modular suite that supports a broad range of strategic and financial performance management tools that helps business to unlock their potential.
A global financial environment contains over 10000 users around the world and rely on a range of EPM tools like Hyperion Planning, Essbase, SmartView, DRM and ODI to meet its needs.
This session shows all the complexity of this environment, describing all the relationship between those tools, the technics used to maintain such a large environment in sync, and meeting the most varied needs from the different business and laws around the world to create a complete and powerful business decision engine that takes a global company to the next level.”

The idea in this presentation is to show the design we uses in one big client and why we use it, the gains and how it works. In fact for the ones that follow our blog and our presentations, this will be the tie point of everything we talk about. It’ll be a excellent presentation for people looking for ideas of integrated environments.

We are very excited about it since we’ll be talking about how to improve EPM tools potential using ODI and also how EPM tools connects with each other in a global financial environment. We’ll be very pleased if you guys show up in our presentation. It’ll be great to meet everyone there and talk about EPM and other cool stuff!

Kscope is the largest EPM conference in the world and it will be held on Chicago, Illinois on June 2016. It will feature more than 300 technical sessions, five symposiums, deep dive sessions, and hands on labs over the course of five days.

Got interested? If you sign up by March 25th you’ll take advantage of the Kscope early bird rates, then don’t waste more time and let’s be part of the greatest EPM event in the world. If you are still unsure about it, read our post about how Kscope/ODTUG changed our lives! Kscope is indeed a life changer event!

Hi guys how are you doing?

I know we are not writing anything for a long now and I’m here just to give you two good news (and one is the reason I’m not writing anything until now :))

First of all I just received the information that Oracle level up me to ACE :).

I’m so happy and glad to receive this title that is difficult to express in words, but I need to thanks you guys for support and incentive.

The other good news (and this one explain my absence). I just got married :), and I need to say, it was a great party 🙂

And because I’m not a conventional guy 🙂 (No body in IT is right?) I had to do my wedding a little bit different 🙂 and I must say, it was worthy :). I think it was the best wedding I ever went 🙂 (by the way, in Brazil the wedding start 4 pm and goes until 5 am).
