The latest version of Oracle Hyperion Essbase is one of the most powerful Business Intelligence (BI) tools on the market. While traditionally looked at by many as a finance only tool, it has become obvious to any analyst that Essbase can provide a remarkable service of high level dissection of data in both high and lower data quantity environments.
Hyperion Essbase is one of the first OLAP tools on the market. In 2005 “Information Age” magazine called Essbase one of the ten most influential technology innovations of the previous ten years, putting it alongside the Pentium processor from Intel and Linux.
How can Essbase enhance your business?
Hyperion Essbase can sit at the heart of a BI suite, or even on the periphery of the BI infrastructure. You can use it for detailed financial planning where users can write and retrieve from one source, or it can gather large amounts of detailed information from a datawarehouse and aggregate it up to higher levels to provide summary analysis. When a deeper dive of the data is required, it’s available to you at the speed of thought.
