8 What Most Companies Currently Use

9 Most Modeling is Done Here! It is great tool, but Excel was never designed for complex calculations. Its error-prone and difficult to audit Disconnected from networks or backups Data Security Risks Doesn t scale No controls / audit trails Multiple calculations Spreadsheets are inefficient for more than two dimensions

10 Business is more than 2D Market Product Time Scenario We typically look at more than two dimensions (multi-dimensional) So what do we do? Add more column headers! In our example:! Total Market BY Total Product, Actual Sales for Qtr1 = 95,820 Measures

11 Multi-Dimensional = Multi-Sheet Add a sheet for each brand 4 brands + Total = 5 Sheets The problem exacerbates The result: HEADACHES Market(s)

12 Multi-Sheet = Nightmare How about by Brand and by Market? 5 Brands BY 500 Properties = 2500 Sheets! What about by Location too? Welcome to Spreadsheet Hell

13 The Solution is Essbase Essbase or "Extended Spread Sheet database Developed to address the scalability issues associated with spreadsheets such as Lotus and Microsoft Excel OLAP Database (On-Line Analytical Processing), Essbase features: Dimensional cube of information Defines the BY s of the company (means Actual BY Profit BY Jan), Improves how you see the Business Ability to slice and dice the data Essbase is commonly used to: Combine multiple sources of disparate data Analyze summarized data Do data modeling, What If and predictive analysis Satisfy the needs of a variety of users Executives, managers, analysts & other business users

14 What is Essbase?

15 The leading enterprise multi-dimensional database engine in the world Provides real-time analytic infrastructure for business intelligence and enterprise performance management (EPM) applications. Engineered for scalability, security, and rapid-response. Through an intuitive interface, business users can manipulate large data sets to model complex scenarios, forecast outcomes, and perform what-if analyses to identify trends and optimize business results. Essbase utilizes a multi-dimensional database. Multi-dimensional database are usually queried topdown the user starts at the top and drills into dimensions of interest. An Essbase database is considered a cube, with each cube axis representing a different dimension, or slice of the data (accounts, time, products, etc.) All possible data intersections are available to the user at a click of the mouse. What is Essbase?

16 Why use Essbase? Users typically use Essbase for: Historical and forecasted performance Budget variances Variance and profitability analysis Performance trends Profitability metrics and Foreign Exchange impact Generally any query using non-transactional data Users typically use Oracle Reports for: Viewing individual transactions Auditing GL entries External reporting Generally any query that needs transaction data

17 Reporting tools vs. Essbase Analysis Reporting Analysis Which customers spend the most? Which customers are most profitable? What did this customer buy? What is the customer likely to buy next? What is the Q4 revenue forecast? What if demand falls short of forecast?

18 How using the wrong tools impacts your business ERP Systems Inflexible, slowly changing, long turnaround times Lack forward looking data (budget and/or forecast) Slow Performance Data Warehouse Complicated data model Poor query performance Data latency Excel Multiple versions of the truth Version control Difficult to distribute ( , file shares, SharePoint)

19 Microsoft Excel Hyperion Essbase Financial Reports Data Forms Microsoft Office Hyperion Essbase Web Analysis Data Sources

20 Relational vs. Multi-dimensional RELATIONAL DATABASE Data represented in tables without a hierarchy structure Does not account for sparsity of data Have to write complex SQL statements extract data Several tables have to be joined to create calculations MULTIDIMENSIONAL DATABASE Data represented in a hierarchy structure across multiple dimensions Uses sparse / dense concept to reduce database size OLAP engine allows rapid retrieval via Excel addin Hierarchical nature of dimensions allows consolidations and formula and calcuations scripts perform calculations Queries to extract data take time and cannot easily be run by users Data can easily and rapidly be extracted via Excel addin by users with minimal training

21 Hyperion Essbase Solutions

22 Hyperion Essbase Multidimensional database management system (MDBMS) that provides a multidimensional database platform upon which to build analytic applications. One Version of the Truth Speed-of-thought analysis for thousands of concurrent users Easy for users to consume data via spreadsheets Write-Back capability of data and Powerful calculation engine Scalable to enterprise-level user base Premium Performance & Optimized Storage Ease of development, deployment and maintenance. Stand Alone Application to eliminate spreadsheet reporting

23 Hyperion Smart View Accounts love their Excel and Oracle Understands this! Essbase features Ad-Hoc Analytics via Excel via reports or Drill through/back Use MS Office to enter, analyze and report on subsidiary data MS Excel add-in allowing access on or off-line Users download forms to Excel Manipulate data just like the full web client Synchronizes to server when ready to be updated.

24 Dimensions Technically, a dimension is a characteristic or an attribute of a data set - a.k.a Metadata In reality, Dimensions are grouping devices for related stuff Some examples of dimensions are: Time Accounts Departments Products Year Scenario Entity Countless others! Year Quarter 1 January February March Quarter 2 April

25 Common Essbase vocabulary Ancestors Descendants Parent Child Member Alias Sibling

26 Alternate Hierarchy Essbase allows you to present an alternate view of your main hierarchy. This is called an Alternate Hierarchy. Note: Children of alternate rollups are shared members. Salaries and Overtime Expenses is an alternate hierarchy. It consolidates Salaries and Overtime only.

27 Hyperion Essbase Server Features Essbase Data-Tier Industry market leader in OLAP databases (based on revenue) Strong analytic calculation engine. Security filters. Script language for automating processes like data calculations, and command executions. Multi-dimensional data storage (MOLAP).

33 Choose The Right Approach BizTech RapidApp Methodology

34 BizTech leverages our proven methodology, RapidApp, on every engagement Phases Break the project into smaller, more manageable, sections of work Allow for planned pauses & overlap Tasks & Actions Areas of concentration within a phase Not all will be performed on every project Deliverables Formal work products requiring review and acceptance Controlling documents Policies & Procedures Project planning, progress tracking Status reporting Project scope definition and management Formal acceptance of deliverables RapidApp Methodology

35 RapidApp Methodology The two most critical concerns for a successful implementation: PROVEN APPROACH EXPERIENCED PRACTITIONERS Prepare Configure Test Deploy Initial Planning Accelerator Magic Prepare Test Scripts D End User Training Prepare Environment Prepare CRP Scripts D Setup Test/ System Testing Setup Production Define Project D Launch Project Conference Room Pilots User Acceptance Testing Go Live! Accelerator Prep Superuser Training Go/No Go Decision Post-Go Live Support Project Mgmt, Quality Assurance, Knowledge Transfer

36 RapidApp (cont.) Phase 1: Prepare In the Prepare phase, our objective is to build your project mission and definition. We will build a roadmap and framework for the entire project. We define the scope and terms; identify people and resources, milestones and targets. We work with your project team to establish and communicate expectations for the project and perform baseline Oracle training. All implementation strategies are explored and decided upon during this phase. We will establish the base line technical infrastructure that will be necessary to complete the project. All of these elements are the basis for developing your project plan. At the end of the prepare phase, the deliverables include: A definition of Scope, Objectives & Approach that will guide the project. A RapidApp WBS that outlines all tasks as well as a resource plan. A Quality Plan for all phases and deliverables.

37 RapidApp (cont.) Phase 2: Configure In the Configure phase, you ll establish the boundaries of your project. We will work with your team to capture your functional requirements and translate those requirements into a technical design. The technical design becomes the foundation against which we develop the data warehouse, ETL and dashboards. The conference room pilot at the end of the Configure phase will be the point at which we validate that the develop solution matches the defined requirements. At the conclusion of the configure phase, you will have: A definition of Scope, Objectives & Approach that will guide the project. Application Functional Design specification document(s) Application Technical Design specification document(s) Conference Room Pilot Scripts that were used to validate the system A working non-production environment (data warehouse, ETL, dashboards and reports)

38 RapidApp (cont.) Phase 3: Test You re going live soon, and we re helping you prepare. We re with you to update and configure the final system configuration. We ll help you conduct system testing to ensure a smooth transition into production. We ll also help you determine a training approach for your end users, design training material and a training environment, and conduct the training, if requested.. At the end of the test phase, the deliverables include: Documented Test Scripts that you used to test the system A complete end user training approach ready for rollout including Training Guides A fully tested, production-ready system.

39 RapidApp (cont.) Phase 4: Deploy Your Oracle solution is live. As you make the transition, we can remain with you in a support role, helping to troubleshoot, teaching you how to maximize the value of your new system, and identifying any new opportunities to continue with the transformation to an e-business company. At the end of this phase, you will have: A System Configuration Document A Production Software Infrastructure Summary A Deployment Plan Stopped doing your business processes in your legacy system. Moved all project support activities to your production support team. Trained your end users.

40 RapidApp: The Value Proposition Allows organizations to realize immediate cost savings through an accelerated implementation. Establishes a budget conscious methodology that deploys functionality to satisfy core functional requirements. Promotes the selection, inclusion, and customization of additional functionality through additional discovery after your product is implemented. Facilitates a phased approach in which knowledge transfer is conducted whereby clients assume ownership of future project phases; reducing dependency on external services and associated costs. Utilizes pre-built, customizable templates (models, forms, reports and business logic) reducing development cycles and project cost.

41 ALA Delivery Resource Model Leveraging the Architect Lead Associate model yields higher productivity at lower cost, which: Maximizes value over traditional team approach Minimizes risk of single threaded SME approach Architect The Architect designs the solution, and is interacting with the work stream leads to ensure implementation approach is optimal. Lead The Leads are Subject Matter Experts, responsible for client interactions, requirements, ensuring Associates execute the work plan tasks and validates solution. Associate The Associate may be on-site or remote, executes the work plan tasks, unit test, and provides completed work to Lead for testing. Adds 3 rd shift productivity to team.
