Overview of FDM Applications

A FDM application consists of a relational database management system (RDBMS) database and directories that contain the transactional data, metadata, reports, and other files that are used to integrate FDM with target applications.

One FDM application can load to multiple target applications of multiple systems. For example, one FDM application can load to two Hyperion Enterprise applications, a Financial Management application, and three Planning applications.
