Art of BI: Hyperion EPM 11.1.2 Infrastructure Architecture Best Practices

Christian Screen | | December 4, 2010

Aside from managing BI/EPM projects in which I am still able to get my hands dirty, it’s always fun conducting technical architecture assessment for clients.  This is especially fun when a client is just ramping up their BI/EPM infrastructure or just getting these Oracle tools in house and simply need help with planning the architecture for their environment.   With that said, Oracle lends a hand for this fusion release of the EPM suite 11.1.2 with an updated best practice layout of the Essbase, HFM, and Planning environments scoped for 100 – 1000 users at 35% concurrency.  Like most situations we encounter this his helpful but it is never an exact infrastructure plan, usually due to one or more unique challenges within an organization.  However, it gives any organization a great starting point and some nice design ideas to learn from.  In rare “cookie-cutter” situations this architecture may just be perfect to implement just the way it is drawn out.  If you find that scenario, let me know, I’d love to hear about it.

Tips for Upgrading From SQL 2008 to 2012 or 2014

It’s 2015 and you can now establish totally respectable MS SQL DBA credibility just by mentioning you have been in the game since SQL Server version 9. You may even get the same gasps of shock from some colleagues that used to be reserved for the version 6 veterans.
