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.

A success story

I just got back from the first ODTUG Hyperion SIG User Group Conference and am happy to report it was a roaring success.  There was great attendance and aside from mine fantastic sessions. Floyd Conrad  from Oracle gave a great keynote, I won’t repeat what he said here for two reasons. First there was a safe harbor statement in it and second, I actually missed it. I was doing a webcast at the time.

The conference got great support from Applied OLAP, US Analytics, Linium, and interRel. 4 different Oracle Ace directors, Tim Tow, Eric Helmer, Edward Roske were there presenting as well as others. On top of that the refreshments were really yummy  and give-a-ways were good. Unfortunately, I didn’t win the free pass to KScope12.

Below is Alice Lawrence Hyperion SIG president and conference chair beaming about the successful birth of this baby. She should be very proud of this first SIG sponsored event.

I wish I took more pictures, but completely forgot until it was too late.

I look forward to the next event. Unfortunately, the March meeting in Atlanta had to be postponed till a later time. I’ll keep you posted when I know more about when it will be.
