What Does Essbase 19c Mean for Me if I’m on 11.x, 12c, or OAC?

Kurt Mayer | | October 24, 2019

Essbase 19c is the hottest Oracle product of 2019—and it hasn’t even been released yet. Announced at Kscope19, Essbase 19c is the new standalone version of Essbase after being separated from Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC).

There are as many different Oracle environments as there are Oracle customers. If you’re thinking about upgrading to Essbase 19c, you may be using Essbase in the cloud or on-premise—or you may not even be using Essbase at all yet. What’s more, you may be using Essbase together with other Oracle products such as BIFS (Business Intelligence Foundation Suite), PBCS (Planning and Budgeting Cloud), and/or OAC (Oracle Analytics Cloud).

While the best way to upgrade Essbase 19c will depend on your exact situation, there are a few things we know about the product at this stage:

  • Essbase 19c will be offered both on-premise and in the cloud. At the time of release, the on-premises version will run exclusively on Oracle Linux 7.x; however, Windows support will likely arrive in 2020. The cloud version will use Oracle’s hosted cloud services platform, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
  • The supported Oracle Database versions for the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility (RCU) will initially be 12.1c, 12.2c, and 18c.

Still have questions about how the Essbase 19c update will impact your business? Whether you’re in the cloud or on-premise, Datavail has the answers.
