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.

KScope Deep Dive input needed

As the time for KScope draws near, I’ve been busy revising my presentations and getting ready to go. Ill be there starting Saturday afternoon. I doubt I’ll get any sleep until next Thursday.

Speaking of Thursday. This year at KScope, something new is being tried. The different tracks will have “Deep Dive” sessions Thursday morning that are 2 hours long. These will be well worth sticking around for. For the Essbase track, a panel like no other will happen. Why do I say like no other, well, Some of the greatest minds in the Essbase world will be on the panel including

  • Carol Crider – Senior Technical Support Specialist, Oracle
  • Steve Liebermensch – Essbase Product Manager, Oracle
  • Mark Rittman – Ace Director, Rittman Mead
  • Tim Tow – Ace Director, Applied OLAP
  • Sarah Zumbrum – Ace Associate, Finit Solutions

Either Edward Roske or I will also be on the panel. Edward my have to sit in instead of me because whenever I get with Carol Crider I get tongue tied. She is the internals support guru that we all go to when we need real help (No Cameron, she dies not have a degree in psychology). Steve Liebermensch knows more about Essbase features and functionality than anyone else I know. Tim is an expert on the Java API and Mark know more about OBIEE than anyone lese I know.  Why I was included on the panel, I have no idea with this esteemed group.

That said, without questions, the group will be sitting there with nothing to say. WE need you to submit questions for the group to answer. Please don’t ask. things like “In my cube I have 29 dimensions and it takes 12 minutes longer to calculate than it did two years ago. How do I optimize it” That is way to specific. But if you asked about the reasons calculations might take longer than they used to. that might be able to be answered.

Your questions can be submitted in a couple of ways.  First, by tweeting with the hashtag #EssbaseDeepDive, or at @CubeCoderDotCom (throwing in the #Kscope14 hashtag will help others to see your question, too).  Alternatively, by email to EssbaseDeepDive@gmail.com.

I look forward to your questions and to meeting many of you at KScope 

(Note, even if you are not going and have a thought provoking question, go ahead and submit it. )
