This document describes the new features introduced in Oracle Hyperion Provider Services Release 11.1.1.
In previous releases, Oracle Essbase was the only data source integrated with Oracle Hyperion Smart View for Office, Fusion Edition through Provider Services. In release 11.1.1, Provider Services acts as a common provider for Oracle Hyperion Planning, Fusion Edition and Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition and well as for Essbase. This feature enables:
A simpler and easier way to connect and manage connections from Smart View to data sources.
The ability of Oracle Hyperion Planning, Fusion Edition and Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition as well as Oracle Essbase users to perform ad hoc analysis, reporting, and other Smart View operations, including the enhancements made to Oracle Hyperion Smart View for Office, Fusion Edition for 11.1.1.
New Java APIs are included in Provider Services to provide the following functionality:
Varying Attributes through Member Selection (Query mode)
Smart List, Format String, and Date in MDX Query and in data query
Oracle Hyperion Provider Services is installed by the Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Installer, Fusion Edition.
The new Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Installer, Fusion Edition and Oracle's Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Configurator provide a streamlined and simplified approach to product installation, upgrade, and configuration. Oracle's Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Configurator uses the new Oracle's Hyperion Shared Services Registry, which simplifies product configuration by storing and re-using configuration information.
Oracle's Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Diagnostics confirms that product components were successfully installed, configured, and are up and running.
