I am very pleased to mention that I will be making a last minute appearance at Oracle OpenWorld this year! I am going to be presenting with Gabby Rubin, and Tim Tow about various free tools that exist in the Hyperion/Essbase ecosystem. The presentation is on Thursday, September 22nd, 2016, at 12:00pm at Moscone West. The presentation ID is CON6489.
For my part of the presentation, I am going to talk about a handful of tools I have personally created over the years. This will likely include Cubedata (a tool for generating large quantities of data to help test Essbase performance), Camshaft (a tool for running MDX queries and outputting the results to a text file), and Vess, a highly experimental/innovative JDBC driver for Essbase that provides a functional facade for Essbase servers/cubes including access to outline data, cube data, data loads, substitution variables, and more. The goal of the presentation will be to quickly inform intrepid Essbase/Hyperion administrators and developers about some of the interesting third-party functionality they might find useful and improve productivity.
