Oracle Analytics Cloud – Essbase is built on the Essbase platform.  It leverages the best of the on-premises software and adds new functionality for the cloud.  You can now increase the available size and complexity of your models while reducing the complexity of deploying them.  The cloud platform service offers you specially built technology to facilitate your rapid deployment of on-the-fly analytic models, enabling you to extend them as your business needs evolve or discard them in favor of your new models.  By creating and sharing these ad hoc models, you can quickly build and collaborate using Microsoft Excel and Web interfaces.  The elasticity and scalability of the cloud platform mean you can scale the service up or down depending on workloads and usage requirements.

With Oracle Analytics Cloud – Essbase, you can get started immediately, because it requires no initial investment.  Your subscription includes everything that you need.  You do not need to license, install, upgrade, or patch software.  You do not have to buy, install, or configure hardware.  Using the new application workbook upload, you can also leverage the deep product expertise of the worldwide Oracle Hyperion Partner network and the Essbase gallery templates to develop and deploy cloud-based analytic models quickly.

Let’s show you how to stand up an Essbase cube on OAC in less than 60 minutes!

Finally, we will discuss options available during setup, customizations needed, and other tips and tricks for using FCC.
