TDE column encryption encrypts and decrypts data transparently when data passes through the SQL layer with no modification required to any existing application.

Author: Linda Stewart, Performance Architects Today I was working in an Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) 12c RPD (Version 12.2.1.2, the on-premise Oracle BI solution) and I dragged my table from the logical level to the presentation level.  I wanted to rename the table, but the name in the property sheet was locked. The solution is Read More

The standard Oracle error message contains three content objects: 1. The title; 2. The subtitle; and 3. Error details.  The steps below outline how to Read More

Oracle Data Visualization (DV) Desktop allows you to bring in your own data from an Excel file and to use this data as a source for visualizations.  In this case, I compiled a basic spreadsheet of sample Major League Baseball (MLB) attendance data. I uploaded this content to DV Desktop and created visualizations using the data Read More

The enterprise performance management (EPM) and enterprise analytics (business analytics, BI, data visualization) arenas may have seemed like an afterthought at Oracle OpenWorld this year, since the conference focus areas seemed to be autonomous (self-learning) databases, blockchain and cloud infrastructure!  Never fear!  I’ve distilled the top three themes from these areas to bring you up to speed in this arena as quickly as possible.

I recently applied the 17.3.3-926 patch to Oracle Essbase Cloud Service (ESSCS) in Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC). If you have not patched OAC yet, the good news is that this process is as close to “one-click” as it can get, with the capability to perform a “pre-check” of the instance (and while we have yet to Read More

It is hard to not have heard of the Apache Struts vulnerability that affected major websites, including those of Equifax. When this happened, IT support teams scrambled to check their environments and to apply fixes as quickly as they could be found. Our customers running Oracle EPM (Hyperion) (as well as Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition or OBIEE) on-premise inquired Read More

By now you have most likely seen a lot of material (including posts on our blog) regarding how Essbase has moved to the cloud as Essbase Cloud Service (ESSCS), which is part of the new Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC). You may still be wondering how the feature sets between the two versions of Essbase compare. The good news is that they Read More

Oracle’s Essbase is a popular multidimensional database platform that powers business analytics solutions the world over, both on-premise and as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS, in the “cloud”). The name stands for “Extensible Spreadsheet Database” because this database’s dimensions provide multiple views of a dataset, and you can drive complex calculations off of these datasets. Dimensions can be defined Read More
