KScope has concluded, and what a fantastic week it was.  I love the years I get the feedback that I have an abstract selected so I can attend.  This year, I was awarded Oracle Ace, so it was really nice to be nominated and recognized for my contributions to the community.  Read more



Chris Hull has been kind enough to partner with us to present how the methods available in Groovy calculations have made a huge impact in their budgeting and reporting process using PBCS. Read more


I was lucky enough to be invited to talk about the new Groovy Calculation in PBCS and ePBCS at the Ohio Valley OAUG meeting today.  If you have read the Groovy series, you know how strongly I feel about the advancements in Hyperion Planning with the addition of Groovy Calculations.  I want to share the presentation with a wider audience.  This is a functional overview for those who are new to the concepts.  This also introduces readers how to develop their first Groovy Calculation, and provides some examples.

Jake TurrellKscope wouldn’t be the same without checking out Jake – one of the best.  The amount of time and effort he puts into his presentations is crazy and it shows.  If you want to learn something new, below is schedule.  If you get a picture of him in his formal wear (you will know what I mean if you see it), please post a picture in a comment and tweet me…PLEASE!

For those of you that know me, I have a little graphic designer in me.  I frequently develop things that may be useful to others in the industry and like to share.  Below are 2 images that you may use with the understanding that the logo has to remain and can’t be re-branded.  If you would like to have this customized and your logo added, contact me and we can discuss the options.

PBCS Architecture

I was asked to summarize the PBCS Architecture.  Since this isn’t proprietary, here you go.

Pizza As A Service

I won’t take credit for this concept.  You can find this all over the internet.  I was a little bored and wanted to present the concept to a client so I decided to recreate it a little more professionally.  This compares software as a service (SASS) to pizza.  Hope you can benefit from it and maybe get a few laughs.
