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.

11.1.2.1 We are getting close

I can not take credit for being the first to notice, I give that to Sebastian Roux on the Network 54 forum, but the documentation for 11.1.2.1 is now available at Documentation link. The actual release can’t be far off.

The first thing I see in the readme is the upgrade path (I’m concentrating on Essbase here).

 

Release Upgrade Path From

To

11.1.2.0.x

11.1.2.1

Note that when moving from Release 11.1.2.0.x to Release 11.1.2.1, you use the "Apply Maintenance Release" option in EPM System Installer, instead of following the documented upgrade procedures

11.1.1.3.x

11.1.2.1

9.3.3.x

Note: If you were using Performance Management Architect Release 9.3.1, you can download the Performance Management Architect Release 9.3.3 from My Oracle Support.

11.1.2.1

9.2.1.x

11.1.2.1

A release earlier than Release 9.2.1.x

If you are upgrading from a release earlier than 9.2.1.x, you must first upgrade to a supported release and then upgrade to release 11.1.2.1. For upgrade procedures for the earlier release, see the product installation guides for the interim release that you are upgrading to.

An environment that includes multiple releases, which can include an environment with one instance of Hyperion Shared Services or an environment with two instances of Shared Services

See “Upgrading from an Environment with Multiple Releases” in the "Upgrading EPM System Products" chapter in the Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Guide.

Note: If you are starting from Release 9.2.0.3+, 9.3.0.x, 9.3.1.x (except for Essbase 9.3.1.4.1, 9.3.1.5, 9.3.1.6, and 9.3.1.7), or 11.1.1.x, Oracle recommends that you upgrade to Release 11.1.1.3 as your interim release. If you are starting from an earlier release, Oracle recommends that you upgrade to the highest level release that directly supports upgrade from your starting release.
Security Synchronization between Essbase and Shared Services was removed in Essbase Release 9.3, starting with Release 9.3.1.4.1. Essbase and Shared Services Release 11.1.1.3, however, still synchronize security information. For this reason, if you are using Essbase Release 9.3.1.4.1, 9.3.1.5, 9.3.1.6, or 9.3.1.7, you must first upgrade all products to Release 9.3.3, instead of Release 11.1.1.3.

As time permits, I’ll go though some of the interesting enhancements (don’t seem to be many) and the bug fixes.
