Last year in New Orleans, the Hyperion track at ODTUG was an unqualified success. It was such a success, in fact, that hundreds of abstracts were submitted for next years conference in Monterey. I submitted two of those, so wish me luck. I’d like to talk about an end-to-end Essbase automation system profiling/performance/optimization effort which would cover all the Essbase optimizationi techniques collectively (Outlines/Dense/Sparse, Calculations, MaxL, and some other tricks I have up my sleeve). I also submitted an abstract to talk about how using Dodeca has improved our reporting systems in many cases, and allowed us to ditch some spaghetti code VB apps in the process. So I am anxiously waiting to see if I get to talk next year….
