I just wanted to plug a webinar that I am conducting tomorrow on Dodeca. I’m excited to do this webinar for a few reasons. Usually on our monthly webinar series we look at a specific feature and do a technical walkthrough. The focus of this webinar is a little different, though. This is more of a case study looking at how a business has a lot of existing processes and reports built around Essbase and the Excel add-in, but needs something more sophisticated to handle their needs, including:
- Using Dodeca to build views based on existing Excel sheets that need to fetch data for multiple tabs and multiple data sources in one fell swoop
- Facilitate user input directly to Essbase with commentary
- Combine Essbase and relational data in a single view (and save user’s a trip to a tertiary system!)
- Drill-through in Dodeca: not just from Essbase to relational but Essbase to Essbase or relational to relational
- Batch reporting
Having consulted in the Hyperion/Essbase world for many years I can easily say that there were countless organizations with sophisticated and complicated (but tried and true) Excel/Essbase-based processes that would greatly benefit from a tool that helped automate, manage, and control things. So that’s exactly what I hope to convey tomorrow during the webinar. If you’d like to attend, please register and I’ll look forward to showing you Dodeca and taking your questions!
