One of the frequently requested topics for Advisor Webcast sessions is "patching and maintenance of EPM".
As one of the EPM hosts, I am therefore particularly happy to announce a session that covers patching on Exalytics based on examples of OBIEE, Essbase and Times Ten.
ADVISOR WEBCAST: Exalytics Patching
You may have heard of the legendary Top Gun meetings of the Hyperion sphere... A lot of people who already worked with the EPM products when they were still "Hyperion" (and some other interested Top Gunners) gathered together in one conference? No?

As tracking down logfiles has become similarly difficult, Maurice has prepared two webcasts for our EPM customers, named after the childrens game "Hide and Seek".
EPM Log Hide and Seek (with Hyperion tools) March 21, 2013
EPM Log Hide and Seek (with generic Oracle tools) March 27, 2013
