  • Give Thanks for Essbase Analytics Link (EAL)

  • Important Note

    Much of the content within this presentation was developed by Oracle Corporation and is the sole property of Oracle Corporation and its Affiliates.

  • What is EAL?

    Oracle Essbase Analytics Link for Hyperion Financial Management provides near-real-time data synchronization between Oracle Hyperion Financial Management, and Oracle Essbase, enabling Essbase users to view live Financial Management data without having to create and manage extraction and load tasks. Analytics Link off-loads the Financial Management application server by managing all reporting requests, freeing resources for financial consolidations.

  • Vicious Cycle

  • Real time access to financial management data

    Improved analytics (additional dimensions)

    Data drill from high-level to very granular

    Improved data quality & consistency

    Data available to multiple systems almost instantly

    Consolidation engine performance improvement

    Increased confidence in the data

    What-If Analysis

    Reduced IT costs

    Benefits of EAL

  • EAL Components Part I Analytics Link Server - Analytics Link Server is a Web server that integrates Financial Management applications with Essbase databases and manages all operations of Analytics Link. Analytics Link Repository - The Analytics Link repository is a relational database user/schema in which Analytics Link Server stores its internal data. The location of the Analytics Link repository is specified during the Analytics Link configuration process. Whether using an existing relational database or creating a new database for the Analytics Link repository, you should create an Analytics Link user with permission to create and maintain tables within the schema.

  • EAL Components Part II Analytics Link Data Synchronization ServerCreates the Analytics Link application (which is the replication of the Financial Management application), performs data aggregation on demand, synchronizes Data Synchronization Server data with Financial Management, and serves queries coming from Essbase. Analytics Link Administration Services Console Plug-inProvides the user interface to manage Analytics Link Servers nodes and Analytics Link bridges. All administration activities are based on Web Services. Analytics Link Financial Management ConnectorEnables Analytics Link Application Server to access Financial Management data.

  • Data Synchronization Server As an aggregation engine, Data Synchronization Server performs data aggregation on demand. Data Synchronization Server performs the same aggregations as the Financial Management application (except as noted below), so it returns matching results. Data Synchronization Server does not perform consolidations of the Entity dimension, which is the consolidation dimension of the Financial Management application. Consolidations of the Entity dimension must be performed in Financial Management.

  • EAL Components Part III Data Store - The Data Store is a relational database user/schema and may contain: (1) Mapping tables that are defined in a bridge (2) Data or metadata that is extracted to an RDBMS database Analytics Link Servers Node - When the Analytics Link Administration Services Console plug-in component is enabled in Administration Services Console, the Analytics Link Servers node is displayed in the Enterprise View. When an Analytics Link Server is added to the Analytics Link Servers node, the server node is populated with these subnodes: HFM Servers, Essbase Servers, Data Synchronization Servers, Data Stores, and Bridges. Analytics Link Bridges - A bridge enables you to build a whole, partial, or transformed replica of a Financial Management application in an Essbase database, or extract Financial Management application data to an RDBMS database. After a bridge is created, the bridge target cannot be changed

  • Why EAL?

  • How Does it Work?

  • Other Uses

  • HFM Snapshots In Analytics Link, a snapshot is a complete copy of the data and metadata of a Financial Management application. You define a snapshot when you add a Financial Management application to a Analytics Link Server. You can add multiple instances of the same Financial Management application by providing a different snapshot name in the Financial Management application definition. The snapshot name is displayed in brackets after the application name. Snapshots are useful for working with different instances of the same Financial Management application and archiving Financial Management applications.

  • EAL Security Analytics Link user management and security is provided through EPM System security, which uses Shared Services to provide user management, user provisioning, and external authentication definition. Products that implement Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System security require access to a Shared Services server running Shared Services client and server software, and to a database dedicated to Shared Services. Analytics Link security does not have to be managed by the same instance of Shared Services that manages the security of Financial Management or Essbase. However, if you migrate Financial Management security to Essbase, Analytics Link, Financial Management, and Essbase must use the same Shared Services Server instance

  • Transparent, Real-Time Integration

  • Mapping Table Templates

    You can create mapping tables in the Data Store yourself, rather than use the mapping table templates that Analytics Link creates from the Target Design Grid tab.

    The following query creates a mapping table template for mapping one Financial Management source dimension to one target dimension

  • Summary: EAL for HFM

    Integration of Essbase With HFM

    Added analysis and calculations for HFM Open up the FM data model to Essbase and OBIEE Seamless integration between EPM and BI Common reporting cube for all applications Extended reporting dimensionality for HFM

    Does not require HFM data server, increasing performance

    Works with Essbase or Data Warehouse

  • EAL 11.1.2.2

    Analytics Link 11.1.2.2.000 requires a fresh installation Analytics Link release 11.1.2.2.000 supports Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System 11.1.2.2.000 only. Other EPM System releases are not supported. This release of Analytics Link supports only Oracle Hyperion Financial Management applications that include four Custom dimensions. Analytics Link is installed using Oracle Universal Installer 11.2 (32-bit), regardless of whether you are installing Analytics Link on a 32-bit or 64-bit platform. OUI 11.2 (32-bit) installs a version of Analytics Link that matches the bitness of the operating system. Analytics Link is supported on these platforms: Microsoft Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) Red Hat Enterprise Linux Release 5.3 (64-bit), only when Analytics Link Server is deployed on Oracle WebLogic Server (64-bit)
