EPMA or DRM---Do I Use One, the Other, or Both?
Paul Hoch , TopDown Consulting
Co-presenter(s): Steve Davis, TopDown Consulting
When: Jun 25, 2013, Session 9, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Topic: EPM Foundations & Data Management - Subtopic: DRM

Oracle offers two different tools that operate as a single point of maintenance for metadata: Enterprise Performance Management Architect (EPMA) and Data Relationship Management (DRM). The EPMA does light duty and DRM handles more complex metadata management needs. Sometimes the tools work best on their own, and other times they are complementary. Using real world examples, this session will review the best tool to use for managing your metadata---EPMA or DRM---and when it is best to use them both together. It will compare and contrast feature sets, automation possibilities and scalability, examine gotchas, alternatives, and workarounds, and offer tips and tricks for how to get the most out of either tool.

Practical SQL for EPM Practitioners
Cameron Lackpour , CL Solve
When: Jun 25, 2013, Session 8, 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
Topic: EPM Foundations & Data Management - Subtopic: No Subtopic

An EPM system has three main parts: calculations, metadata, and of course, data. You code the logic, design the dimensions, and scope the data. You translate business rules and definitions into logic -- how do you actually source the needed data and metadata? If your answer is, "Ask IT for it," then you have entrusted your system's success to a possibly uncaring and certainly extremely busy set of strangers. And where will IT source your information? From the same relational data sources, you too can query with just a little SQL knowledge. This session shows techniques, tips, and good practices for common SQL tasks in EPM application creation, maintenance, and reporting.

Exalytics - An Apples to Apples Comparison
Daniel Pressman , nTuple
Co-presenter(s): Cameron Lackpour John Booth Tim German, CLSolve

Topic: EPM Foundations & Data Management - Subtopic: Infrastructure & Essbase Exalytics

This session will be a panel discussion highlighting the results of our apples to apples test comparing an Exalytics-based solution to a comparable machine in the Amazon Cloud. These tests encompassed ASO and BSO; they covered data loads, BSO calculation, and ASO Aggregation; and finally multi-user performance tests of BSO Planning Rules and ASO Queries. Given the breadth of this testing some of the results are applicable to non-Exalytics solutions (assuming you have the "lots" of CPU and or Memory).
