EPM everywhere. And Dodeca which is EPM. So there you are.
Big news in Essbase-land, big news in EPM-Land. Again, if you’re not following me on @CameronLackpour you’re not getting this truly as it happens. Perhaps that sort of breathless reportage is not for you but I’m wearing my index finger down to the bone on my phone.
No matter, here’s the latest slides. Again, I have to think quite a bit about what I’ve seen. Put that down to
pronounced dullness considered thought. As the conference continues I’ll do my best to reflect on what I hear.

Cloud reporting, so long FR in the not too distant future

All sorts of cool stuff, but “Buddy”? All I can think of is Bobby Darin singing, “My Buddy”. I used to sing it to my cat. Really. But I’m an odd duck. Also, undoubtedly TMI.
Not quite done for today as there’s the evening entertainment. If you happen to go, stop by the MindStream Analytics booth and say hello.
