Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting 11: A Practical Guide

Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting is the business intelligence and reporting package bundled within Oracle’s Enterprise Performance Management software.  It provides the ability to report from Oracle Essbase, Oracle Hyperion Planning, and Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) applications quickly and easily, and also offers a way to build reporting templates for individual execution, as well as FR Books and Batches with dynamic content, prompts, and calculations.

Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting 11: A Practical Guide examines the power of the Financial Reporting software product covering basic operations through to advanced techniques.  The book – filled with color screenshots – works through the development of a simple grid, the use of suppression, conditional formulas, functions and formulas, books and batches, and even integration with Smart View.  Examples are provided that demonstrate Financial Reporting’s capabilities alongside personal insights from the authors’ experiences of the product.

The book is targeted at business and technical users looking to learn report building techniques.   As a practical guide, it focuses on the product features, common business techniques, and the information needed, to work effectively, day-to-day, with Financial Reporting.
