Hyperion Forum

Hi, I've always found this TM1 Forum great because one can get an independent view. My company is now investigating the use of Oracle Hyperion and I want to find a similar independent forum about Hyperion that I can pose a few questions. I've looked on the web but the only forums that are popping up...

Alternative cube viewers

We have built some cubes using Microsoft SSAS (SQL Server 2008 R2) and I was wondering what alternatives there exist for end user viewing and reporting? While I know you can use Excel 2010, perhaps there are some more user friendly tools that allow naive users to explore and create reports? Does any...

Re: General TM1 Resource Requirements

Tomok, Many thanks for the great advice, my thinking about choosing the consultant matches yours. With regard to finance owning the solution, that's fine as well, I agree.

General TM1 Resource Requirements

We're thinking of developing a financial consolidation application using TM1 that will take feeds from 9 company financial feeds (probably via spreadsheet) into one chart of accounts. We do not have the expertise in house to develop this application, so we'll need to rely on some consulting company ...

Re: Alternatives to TM1

Just think of how hard it already is to find capable TM1 resources. I think you can be certain the situation is much worse with Palo. Do you really see a manager of a multinational going for Palo? Really? I must agree on this point. We are a mid size global company with 2,200 employees across the g...

TM1 User Audit

We're currently running TM1 9.1 SP2 Update 3 and I'm trying to complete an audit of the users we have within the company. What is the easiest way to determine how many registered users we have and when they last logged in. I am hoping there is some function/command one can run on the server to list ...

Cognos TM1 versus Hyperion HFM

A quick question that will hopefully save me looking through reams of manuals and web sites. I'm familiar with the functionality of Hyperion Financial Management where I can collect a number of GLs that use different charts of accounts, map them within HFM into one chart of accounts and then produce...
