Why I created a blog

Its been many years since I first created this blog. It has remained true to Essbase and related information over those years. Hopefully it has answered questions and given you insight over those years. I will continue to provide my observations and comments on the ever changing world of EPM. Don't be surprised if the scope of the blog changes and brings in other Hyperion topics.

A new beginning

Although most of my entries have been technical in nature, I depart a bit in this one to give some personal news. I have accepted a new position as a consultant with interRel consulting and start Friday Oct 24th (2008 for those of you like to look through really old blogs). While I enjoyed working with those that became really good friends at Narratus Solutions; after all I only worked with them for 17 years, it was time for a change. I am excited about my new position and a bit apprehensive as interRel has some of the brightest and most knowledgeable Oracle BI (Hyperion BI) consultants around. This is really good for all of you because I can share new things I learn. The one thing I have learned over the years working with Essbase is no matter how much you know, there are always things you don’t know. As I go forward in my career, I find that the more I learn, the less I know. It really is amazing how much they have packed into the applications now.

While I don’t answer technical questions sent to my email as I prefer you post your questions to the Oracle Forum http://forums.oracle.com/forums/category.jspa?categoryID=145, if you need to contact me about business or personal matters, I can now be emailed at Gschwartzberg@interrel.com

I’ve been told, I should to blog( I was encouraged to increase my blogging) and am even allowed to flame Edward Roske once in a while (Relax Edward, I won’t do it more than once an entry). Some of the interRel people have even offered me bonuses if I do. I think I’m going to like it here.

Let the journey begin
