In this five-day course, you learn the principal techniques and theories for the design of Essbase block storage databases. Block storage databases are deployed independently for budgeting, forecasting, and planning, and as the underlying data storage and analytic engine for Hyperion Planning applications. You create a database outline, load data into the database, and analyze data with Smart View. You also create calculation scripts (to calculate data for different scenarios) and perform advanced analysis on the database by implementing varying attribute dimensions and typed measures. Design discussions and hands-on activities help you practice the skills taught.
