Extend Parallel Scripting OptionsFIXPARALLEL CALC PARALLEL should be your first choice, use FIX PARALLEL when you hit CALCPARALLEL limitationsExecute any FIX blocks in parallel, overcomes restrictions of CALCPARALLEL Give power of parallelism to the users when CALC Parallel cannot parallelize thescripts Enables parallelism for DATAEXPORT, DATACOPY, scripts with variables and moreFIXPARALLEL can often improve calculation times in key use cases:– CALCPARALLEL is forced to run in serial (shown in app log) Usage of variables DATACOPY, CLEARDATA, and DATAEXPORT only a slice of the database Complex member/formula dependencies

MDX Improvements Optimized AGGREGATE Function– Significant performance improvements for totals atmulti-level hierarchies– Improvement is based on the query and dimensiondepth MDX Sub Select (not yet via OBI)– Significant performance improvement for queriesagainstlarge databases– The bigger the model, the (relatively) better it gets MDX Optimization for Attributes

Reduce BSO Fragmentation In-place block write Slows the fragmentation– Reduce, potentially eliminate, the need forrestructure– Shorten maintenance window “Exalytics first” optimization

BSO/ASO Hybrid Aggregation Mode Combine the complexity of BSO models with ASO dynamicperformance 100% backward compatible with the 100’s of thousands BSOdatabases out there – Zero Learning curve Will change the way Essbase applications are built and used Initial release will handle only simple dynamic aggregation– This will continue to be a major area of investment for us

BI UI Enhancement for EssbaseParent Last Navigation Option to allow howhierarchies aredisplayed New property– Default is Parentbefore/above– Applies to all axis– Impacts all applicableviews

BI UI Enhancement for EssbaseNull Suppression Options Controls whether nullsin rows/columns aresuppressed in sparsedata sets– Default is Suppress– Override at view-level– Applies to row, columnedges– Impacts all applicableviews

BI Publisher EnhancementsMDX Query Builder GUI for building MDX queriesagainst Essbase Easily report against Essbase &Planning cubes without the needto introduce them into the RPD Combine data coming directlyfrom Essbase on OBI dashboards Combine Essbase data with datafrom other sources in the samereport Use BI Publisher for productionstyle reporting against Essbase

Integrations Essbase as an OBI data source Smartview as the standard Officeintegration technology– Mix BI, Essbase and EPM content ona single sheet, document orPowerPoint slide– Fully interactive Essbase content withdynamic BI views EPM Workspace Integration– Consume, Create and Edit BI contentwithin Workspace: BI Catalog, BIHome, BI Interactive Dashboards– SSO enabled: Oracle BI can consumeHSS token

Removal of Member NameRestrictionsSubject To Change Remove most of the naming restrictions for Essbase– Object name length– Reserved words– Restrictions on characters Initial support will be restricted to JAPI and data loadedfrom SQL sources Significant change in behavior! While it is a positivechange, upgrading customers should test theirdeployments
