Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Oracle Hyperion.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
From a business intelligence (BI) angle, it's only a small part of what Hyperion does. The solution is about to cease to exist, so it doesn't really matter if they add anything to it. It's at end-of-life. Oracle's strategy is to put those clients that are using Hyperion at the moment onto the cloud, through a new software. Companies will be able to have the cloud software but have the option of on-premise. Due to the rich functionality and the breadth of the functionality that it provides, the technical architecture of the solution is quite complex. That is maybe one of the reasons why that Hyperion or Oracle is taking some of the products that have become too complex in the architecture and have decided to rewrite it and put it in the cloud.
The learning curve is pretty steep. For people coming from a relational or star database background, users configuring Essbase need to learn a new way of manipulating the data.
Oracle EPM Cloud solutions have simplified the security model. Nevertheless, it would be better having a more differentiated security model.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
