Greetings my fellow friends. As you know it’s that time of the year when we get together with our friends to have a lot of fun and decide what we will do next…. and it’s not Christmas but it is KSCOPE!!!
Yesterday we helped a little bit the Odtug guys and our friend Cameron to organize this amazing event 😉 (Very small help since we get there late :)).
And today we watch some cool news from Oracle and what is coming in the near future 🙂
Talking about Oracle, we just received our oracle Ace plaques 🙂


Very nice 🙂 and I loved mine 🙂 match with my beard 🙂
Also, tomorrow, 27/Jun we will presenting two session. In the morning (10:15) we will talk about the Dell’s global EPM environment, you can expect to hear about all kind of solutions that we implemented over the Last 6 years, and I’m sure that you guys will get out of this session with a lot of ideas to implement. At afternoon (4:30) our session will be all about tips and tricks. You can expect to hear the best tricks we use in our development as well some ideas in how you can use them.
Come and join us in our presentations. We will be waiting for you guys.
And if we never match before, you just need to look for these badges 🙂


Thank you and we are waiting for you tomorrow….

Hi all! Here we go again! Kscope 16 is just a few days from us and we are really happy to be part of the greatest User group conference in the word! We will (at least we will really try) to cover the entire event here in the blog, so stay tuned for some posts over the next week. On this year’s Kscope, DEVEPM will be arriving from two different locations: Rodrigo is traveling from Brazil and Ricardo from Ireland (Ricardo decided to move to Ireland this year), so it will be great to see each other again.


As you know, DEVEPM will be presenting two sessions on Monday and we really hope to see you all there:

Take a Peek at Dell’s Smart EPM Global Environment:

Ricardo Giampaoli , TeraCorp
 Rodrigo Radtke de Souza, Dell
When: Jun 27, 2016, Session 2, 10:15 am – 11:15 am
Topic: EPM Applications – Subtopic: Planning

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 help business to unlock their potential.

Dell’s global financial environment contains over 10,000 users around the world and relies on a range of EPM tools such as Hyperion Planning, Essbase, Smart View, DRM, and ODI to meet its needs.

This session shows the complexity of this environment, describing all relationships between those tools, the techniques 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 Dell to the next level. 

Incredible ODI Tips to Work with Hyperion Tools

Ricardo Giampaoli , TeraCorp
 Rodrigo Radtke de Souza, Dell
When: Jun 27, 2016, Session 6, 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Topic: EPM Platform – Subtopic: EPM Data Integration

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 want to dynamically run any number of “OS” commands using a single ODI component?
  • Did you ever want to have only one data store and loop different sources without the need of different ODI contexts?
  • Did you ever want 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?
  • Do 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 ODI has four “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 go to Kscope, please don’t hesitate in contact us there! We will be more than happy to meet you all!
Thanks all! Let’s see which ribbons we will get at this year’s Kscope!
