Updated HFM Tuning Guide

A new version of the official HFM Tuning Guide has been released by Oracle. New additions to the document include:
  • Basic information about custom dimensions in HFM
  • Section describing recommended web server timeout settings for IIS and OHS
  • Better explanations for commonly tuned HFM registry settings
  • An example case of tuning the memory settings for an HFM application

The guide can be downloaded via the following Oracle Support article:

The following statement in the new tuning guide also caught my eye: “A complete list of all published HFM registry settings can be found in Appendix A of the Oracle® Hyperion Financial Management, Administrator's Guide starting with Release”. This useful document is available in the Oracle EPM Documentation Library for Release (direct link to hfm_admin PDF).

New Features Overview For EPM

While waiting for the release of the upcoming EPM version I thought I would publish my notes from the Oracle webcast covering new features in EPM If you want to find out more details about each product I recommend you to reserve two and a half hours and listen through the entire webcast as it contains nice presentations from each of the EPM product teams. The recording is available via the Oracle BI&EPM EMEA Partner Community blog.

In the Top Gun conference we also received lots of interesting information about the changes that will bring to EPM infrastructure. Unfortunately Oracle does not want to share this information until the new release is made publicly available so you will have to wait patiently for the juicy technical bits until then...
