Oracle Hyperion EPM Architect is a feature of Oracle Hyperion Foundation Services and is integrated with Oracle Hyperion Financial Management, Oracle Hyperion Planning, Oracle Essbase, Oracle Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management, and Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management. Performance Management Architect enables administrators to manage, create, and deploy Hyperion applications within one interface.
Create applications by dragging and dropping dimensions to the application
Design applications graphically, within one environment
Create subject-specific applications that use existing artifacts
Configure dimensions and define properties from predefined, sample libraries
Create filters to select specified members of a dimension. For example, select the Balance Sheet accounts of the Account dimension. This enables you to have one dimension to maintain but not use the full dimension in all applications.
Duplicate applications for testing or what-if analyses
Transform applications administered in Classic application administration to the Dimension Library and Application Library. This ensures that you are ready to get started with the functionality within Performance Management Architect
Calculating business rules for applications:
Oracle Hyperion Calculation Manager enables you to create, validate, and deploy sophisticated calculations to solve Financial Management andPlanning business problems. You can use Calculation Manager to create any of these calculations:
Allocating costs among entities
Performing revenue modeling
Performing expense modeling
Preparing a balance sheet
Calculating cash flow
Calculating currency translation adjustments
Calculating group and minority interest
Calculating deferred taxes
Visually link and manage applications
Use dimensions and attributes across multiple applications. (For example, you can create one Account dimension and use it in multiple applications.) Performance Management Architect leverages existing applications and dimensionality to spin off other applications with previously constructed dimensions.
Graphically manage data flows
Perform impact analysis—graphically view and model relationships across applications
Handle and evaluate the impact of exceptions and changes to all models
Eliminate manual dimensional and data reconciliation between applications
This guide describes administration features introduced in Performance Management Architect. For information on Classic Application Administration features (for applications not being managed using Performance Management Architect), see the Oracle Hyperion Planning Administrator's Guide or the Oracle Hyperion Financial Management Administrator's Guide.
