Essbase Sales Reporting Case Study:
Global Organization Fulfilling Grower Needs in Specialty Segments

The Challenge:
The client needed our team to assist them in addressing the challenges arising from replacing an outdated process of Excel models and other various data warehouse systems with a Reporting and Budgeting system for sales data.

Many country-specific source systems provided inputs to their long-range plan which, due to different formats and local currencies, created challenges when collecting, transforming and analyzing data in a meaningful and timely fashion. Further, routine reporting exercises were taking several hours to complete.

Introduction to Oracle’s PBC REST API
with Groovy Scripting

Thursday, May 31, 2018
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST
Presenter: Dayalan Punniyamoorthy, EPM Consultant
REST describes any simple interface that transmits data over a standardized interface (such as HTTP).
REST provides a set of design rules for creating stateless services that are viewed as resources and can be identified by their URIs. It allows consultants to perform admin tasks in Oracle EPM Cloud like executing a job, retrieving the job status, adding a member, getting and updating substitution variables for planning applications and managing various tasks related to Migration and Data Management.
In this session, we will cover how to invoke the REST API related to Oracle’s PBC using the Groovy program.
