Webinar: Moving from MaxL to EPM Automate for Oracle Planning Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS)

Event Date: March 31, 2016

Event Time: 12pm - 1pm EST

Using Oracle Planning Budgeting Cloud Service requires some adjustments for users accustomed to the tools Essbase has to offer, including the use of MaxL language. Join us for our webinar, then let?s talk about how MindStream Analytics can take you to the cloud with PlanningXtream.

In response to companies looking for more decentralized services with less IT overhead, Oracle has launched the Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS). PBCS is a hosted version of the Oracle Hyperion Planning and Data Management/Integration (FDMEE) tools with a particular focus on a completely online-based interface.

When moving to Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS) you no longer have direct access to the Essbase server's operating system. Without access to the Essbase server we also lose access to the tool that is commonly used to automate a wide variety of administrative tasks: MaxL. MaxL is a multi- dimensional database access language for administering and automating Essbase. To address this, Oracle has developed a new utility named EPM Automate.

Join us to learn more about:

  • How the EPM Automate Utility uses secure HTTP connections to communicate with the Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service instance
  • How the EPM Automate Utility enables Service Administrators to remotely perform and automate various administrative tasks, including creating and automating scripts with Windows Scheduler.
  • A comparison of functionalities between MaxL and EPM Automate
  • A guide for moving from MaxL to EPM Automate in the new cloud environment

Presented by expert Phil Sable, Manager in the Planning & Analysis practice.
