Kscope19 live blog, Day 1 (final but then again I didn’t cover it), and Day 2, Part 1


Did I live blog yesterday? Did I? Did I live Tweet? Did I? No and no. Sorry. But I have some valid-ish reasons.

Here Is The Excuse For Yesterday

I did what makes conferences like this so valuable – talking to other attendees. Tim German, Pete Nitchke, Natalie Delemar, and my younger-taller-smarter-better-looking-brother-from-totally-separate-parents were the unfortunate targets of my attempts to catch up on the last two years. Fun times, fun times.

Onwards into the Future With Essbase SaaS

If I’ve absorbed anything these last few overwhelmingly awesome days it’s this: go with Enterprise Planning. Why? Essbase SaaS. No, that’s not it’s proper name – that’s Free Form Planning. Yes, it’s a Planning app but not as we’ve known them. Dimensions? As many as you want? Managed environment ? Everything? This is HUGE. OMG, Essbase in Planning. Finally.

EPM Platform What’s New and Coming

Again, commentary is going to have to come afterwards. This is just screenshots. If you’re not following me on Twitter, you’re missing it truly live.

With that…

More to come super-duper soon.

Be seeing you.

KScope 19 live blog, Day 1, Part 3

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.

For Oracle’s slides (and probably AppliedOLAP’s), remember: ALL OF THIS IS SAFE HARBORED. What does that mean?

With that out of the way, think about this: Freeform Planning cubes = Essbase SaaS.
