9 Hyperion Myths That Are Making You Less Effective

The tools in Oracle's Hyperion suite of software products for enterprise performance management (EPM) and business intelligence (BI) are among the most powerful and effective applications available to corporate environments. However, it's also true that with the great power of Hyperion comes great responsibility -- which many organizations struggle with.

EPM systems like Hyperion are mission-critical, but they can be complicated and mercurial to manage. If you're a Hyperion administrator, manager or even a finance director, you're almost certainly well familiar with crashes, bugs, and performance issues, and you know that they can delay reporting and take hours or even days to fix.

This white paper has aimed to bust some of the biggest myths surrounding Oracle Hyperion performance management. When you have the right tools at your disposal, the idea that Hyperion performance management is difficult, time-consuming and expensive isn’t just incorrect, it’s holding your business back.

Cut Costs and Improve ROI: Turn Hyperion EPM Pain into Business Gain

These days, data is one of an organization's most valuable currencies. Of course, the more companies come to rely on accurate, up-to-date data, the more painful it becomes when they start to have problems with data analysis and reporting. These pain points can come in many forms, including missing and inaccurate data, late reports, and overlooked insights.

In far too many cases, these challenges are a result of problems with the Oracle Hyperion enterprise performance management (EPM) software suite. Although Hyperion has incredible advantages, it can also suck up valuable time and effort. As a result, even the most well-intentioned companies are distracted from focusing on their core revenue-generating business initiatives.

The good news is that organizations don't have to live with chronic Hyperion pain. By joining forces with a skilled partner who has extensive knowledge of and experience with Oracle applications, and the resources to provide a complete view of the inner workings of the Hyperion engine, companies can cut costs, become more efficient, and liberate their employees to work on higher-level core activities.

The Forrester Wave™: Static Application Security Testing, Q4 2017

Static application security testing (SAST) is an important part of prerelease application testing that can identify tricky dataflow issues. It can also catch issues such as cross-site request forgery (CSRF) that other tools, including dynamic application security testing (DAST), have trouble finding.

According to The Forrester Wave™: Static Application Security Testing, Q4 2017, SAST remains critical to eliminate proprietary software vulnerabilities so attackers can’t exploit them in production. Download this report to see what’s new and why Forrester has named Synopsys a Wave Leader.

Windows 10: The Big New Opportunity for Developers

Windows 10 is not just another release. Microsoft is introducing a concept it calls “Windows as a service,” which means that the operating system will be continuously updated, though with options for businesses to move at a slow pace in order to retain stability.

Windows 10 is Microsoft’s second attempt at moving its core operating system into the mobile era. Windows 8, released in late 2012, was a bold re-imagining of Windows that divided the system into two personalities, one that was a new touch-friendly environment originally called Metro, and the other the traditional desktop. Metro is powered by a runtime layer called the Windows Runtime (WinRT), for which apps are written using the .NET languages (C# or Visual Basic), HTML and JavaScript, or C++.

Delphi and C++Builder on Raspberry Pi & SBC

The Raspberry Pi is an example of a single board computer. These low cost hobby or project computers are a prime staple of the Internet of Things. More powerful than an Arduino, but not a full desktop. They often have limited or specialized hardware, but their small size and low cost make them ideal for embedded application development.

Delphi supports both ARM and Intel processors with a variety of operating systems. This webinar will explore the combinations of hardware and operating system that make good Delphi target platforms. Then we will look at some examples and provide some resources to get you started.
