Performance Management Architect has the following modules:
Dimension Library—A centralized location to manage dimensions and dimension properties. You can use the Dimension Library to:
Create dimension import profiles—enabling dimension updates from flat files and relational database interface tables
Add, delete, and modify dimension members in the Shared Library or directly in applications
Modify dimension and member properties in the Shared Library or directly in applications
Application Library—A summary of applications that have been created and/or deployed to Financial Management, Planning, Profitability and Cost Management, Essbase Aggregate Storage Option (ASO), or Essbase Block Storage Option (BSO). Applications contain dimensions and dimension attributes that are designed to meet specific requirements for Financial Management, Planning, Profitability and Cost Management, and Essbase (ASO) and (BSO) needs. You can use the Application Library to:
Create Financial Management, Planning, Profitability and Cost Management, Essbase (ASO), or Essbase (BSO) applications based on Financial Management, Planning, and Profitability and Cost Management applications
Manage applications in one centralized location
View the data flow between applications
Migrate applications to different servers
Deploy applications to Financial Management, Planning, Profitability and Cost Management, Essbase (ASO), or Essbase (BSO)
Calculation Manager— Enables you to create, validate, and deploy business rules and business rule sets.
There are three types of objects that can be calculated in Calculation Manager:
Components, which are objects that comprise business rules and can contain formulas, scripts, conditions, ranges, fixed loops, and allocations.
Rules, which are objects that contain groups of components that perform calculations
Rule Sets, which are objects that contain two or more rules that are calculated simultaneously or sequentially.
If you are using a Financial Management, Planning, or Essbase block storage application, you can include Calculation Manager system templates in business rules. For example, you can use a system template that copies data from one location to another. You can also create custom defined templates to perform calculations that solve problems unique to your business.
Data Synchronization—Enables data synchronization between or within Hyperion applications. You can use the Data Synchronizer to:
Create data synchronizations between Financial Management, Planning, Profitability and Cost Management, Essbase (ASO), and Essbase (BSO) as destinations, and the following sources:
Profitability and Cost Management
External source (flat file)
For example, an administrator can synchronize data between two Financial Management applications; two Planning applications, and between one Financial Management and a Planning application.
Create data mappings for reuse
Create flat file and interface table mappings to import data into Hyperion applications
Transform Classic to EPM Architect—Enables transformations of applications managed in Classic Financial Management and Planning releases to Performance Management Architect
Library Job Console—Provides a summary, including status, of Dimension Library and application processes, including imports, deployments, and data synchronizations
