Essbase Studio Tutorial by Example

Author: Christian Screen | | August 27, 2009

By now every knows that the release of Hyperion 11x has provided us with the latest and greatest Essbase modeling application, Essbase Studio.  A lot of us are familiar with Essbase Integration Services and have been looking at Essbase Studio like a two-headed dog.  They either are scared and don’t want to go near it or they are so used to their purse-dog, i.e: EIS, that they stick with what they know best and haven’t unwrapped Essbase Studio yet.

This blog post should put and end to any reluctancy.  I introduce to you the first Essbase Studio tutorial on the web.

You can download the PDF here. (I’ll eventually move this to a CDN if the downloads get to big, so please link to this post and not the document itself.)

I am also breaking the tutorial into a series with this being part 1.  There are a lot of cool new functions with Essbase Studio and you will immediately see the benefits it has over EIS. Soon, you’ll see other blog post here on Essbase Studio tutorials part 2, 3, etc. so be sure to check back often or subscribe to the RSS.

If this series is good, bad, or indifferent please let me know.  I would like to keep these up and with your feedback I can revise and make the documents that much more informative everyone.
