Learn To:

  • Create block storage databases.
  • Build rules files.
  • Analyze data with Smart View.
  • Create basic calculations.
  • Extend analysis capabilities.
  • Create a database outline, load data into the database and analyze data with Smart View.
  • Perform advanced analysis on the database by implementing varying attribute dimensions and typed measures.

Benefits to You

Learn how to improve your organization's performance through better, more informed decisions using Oracle Essbase, the market leading online analytical processing (OLAP) server for Enterprise Performance Management. Become more efficient at forecasting, variance analysis, root cause identification, scenario planning and what-if modeling to better align your organization's resources and improve business results.

Calculation Scripts

During this course, you'll also create calculation scripts (to calculate data for different scenarios). Design discussions and hands-on activities will help you practice the new skills you're learning.

*This course is also suitable for customers using Oracle Essbase 11.1.1.

The instructors are great and the course it's very detailed.






It's the first time participating ExitCertified courses. The experience is overall good.

Tommy was a great instructor. We relied on this class to develop our understanding, and we were very happy with the result.

The instructor, Michalynn , was great! Class was well organized and the labs were helpful.

The ExitCertified Labs were good; however, some of them didn't work completely. I think it was Lab3 where we were using S3 versioning that didn't work.
