Why I created a blog

Its been four 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.

Websphere support in 11.1.2.1?

While 11.1.2.1 has not been released yet, I was looking through Oracle support to see if I could sneak a peek at anything about it. I found a Statement of direction for Websphere support in a document dated 04-Jan-2011. It says:

Statement of Direction
EPM System release 11.1.2 did not include support for IBM WebSphere Application Server. This was done only as a short-term and temporary condition. Current plans call for full certification of IBM WebSphere Application Server with EPM System release 11.1.2 Patch Set 2, with availability planned for 2HCY2011. Please note that customers who have deployed EPM System release 11.1.2 or 11.1.2.1(when available) will be able to apply this patch set to those releases.
Oracle maintains its commitment to supporting Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System on the broadest spectrum of software and hardware platforms. It is expected that IBM WebSphere Application Server as well as IBM DB2, AIX and Tivoli Directory Server will continue playing an important role in this regard and will continue to be supported in our roadmap of EPM System releases.”

So those of you who have been waiting for the patch, it does not appear websphere will be supported – Yet. I’ve heard rumor that 11.1.2.2 won’t be available until late this year (and based on how long it has taken 11.1.2.1 I would not hold my breath waiting for it).  I am going to predict that 11.1.2.1 will be released late this week or early next week, but it is just a guess.

When the patch comes out, I’ll try to review the important fixes and enhancements in it (aside from the ability to migrate apps).
