Kscope15, where the smartest people on the planet working in the Oracle stack gather to share knowledge and have some fun, kicks off today, Sunday, June 21, in Hollywood Florida.
The conference offers great content from developers, administrators, architects, and business users, etc. and TopDown’s thought leaders are delivering some of this content at seven sessions and on a Planning Panel (for details, click here).

We are pleased to announce that the most viewed blog of 2014 is “What is Oracle Hyperion’s Data Relationship Management (DRM) Tool?”

And these are just two of the many reasons DRM is an industry favorite Hierarchy Management Tool.

In this post, we’ll use the Migration Utility to load the properties needed to manage the attributes of an Essbase application. The Migration Utility can also be used to migrate an application from one environment to another, using XML as the data medium.
