PSU And Other New Patches

I'm still enjoying my summer holiday but wanted to briefly switch into working mode just to point out that the long-awaited Patch Set Update has now been released. The Oracle Business Analytics Proactive Support blog sums the patch up nicely in their post Patch Release: EPM I find it quite odd that the readme file for does not specifically mention added support for Internet Explorer 10 even though this is considered the most important change in this patch bundle. The EPM Certification Matrix document has been updated to include new browser specific information for though.
"Internet Explorer 10.x is supported only in, and only with Windows 7 and Windows 8."

Several EPM products have recently received new updates in the code branch as well. See the following blog post for more details: EPM Patch Set Updates - June 2014. Note that the HFM PSU .501 (patch nr. 18792393) is also available although it's not included in the list.

Kscope14 Just Started Up!

I arrived in Seattle on Friday and have been busy taking in this great city and its surroundings. I will post cool photos later but now it's time for business as the Kscope14 conference has officially started. Be sure to stop by our booth #312 in the exhibition area so we can meet and have a chat!

Quick Test With PSU

I did a quick test of applying the recent Patch Set Update .500 (patch nr. 17529887) on top of my existing EPM virtual installation. At this moment I have Foundation, HFM and Financial Reporting installed on the VM (running on Server 2008 R2). As already noted by Cameron in his blog post and also by Oracle Support (see doc ID 1640411.1) the patch is not always installed successfully... Below you can see how your system should look like during the process and after applying the patch.

Essbase Released

Looks like Essbase has been the first product in the EPM code line to receive the PSU 500 treatment. The following patches have been released for Essbase and its helper applications on Monday:

Patch ID
Essbase Client MSI (Windows)
Essbase Client (OPatch)
Essbase Runtime Client
Essbase Server
Essbase Administration Server
Provider Services

The updates include a large number of fixes but this is not just a bugfix release, especially not for Essbase Server. Take a look at the list of new features after the jump:
