I will be presenting next week at the Hyperion User Group - Minnesota 'TechDay 2010' event next week in Minneapolis. The user group has lined up a number of great speakers including fellow Oracle ACE Directors Edward Roske from interRel Consulting and Eric Helmer from The Hackett Group. Oracle Essbase product managers Alan Lee and Karen Zubetz and HFM product manager Mike Malwitz will also be doing presentations along with a number of other consultants.
Alan Lee will be speaking on the new features coming in Essbase 11.1.2 and Karen Zubetz will discussing the new OBI Applications Essbase Integrator which will, in essence, spin Essbase cubes from Oracle BI Server sources. Mike Malwitz will talk about what is new, and what is coming, with HFM. My presentations are on Essbase 11 installation and on converting a VBA application to Dodeca. Here is the full agenda for the meeting: http://www.harbinger-group.com/HUGpage.html#.
I will be in Minneapolis for a couple of days and I have promised myself I would take a bit of time to enjoy my trip. I am planning to visit the climbing gym in St Paul on Wednesday night (Vertical Endeavors - http://www.verticalendeavors.com/st_paul/index.html) and am planning to ski on Thursday night (Afton Alps - http://www.aftonalps.com). Anyone interested in joining me?
