As summer has heated up so has business for the Vertical Edge Team. It has been a busy year for our EPM and BI teams as we have engaged with many new clients while continuing to work closely with our existing customers. Additionally, our team has kept a full calendar sponsoring events and traveling to user group meetings across the country. As always, we were excited to see our customers at KSCOPE18, Collaborate18, a Cincy Reds Baseball Game, Cocktail Evening in Atlanta and several user groups across the country.

We continue to be excited about the ever-evolving technology world we live in. We pride ourselves on being able to resolve challenges while at the same time meeting your business needs using the myriad of available applications. One such technology, Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC), has become one of Vertical Edge’s specialty and we are excited to share our knowledge.

In short, OAC is a single platform that empowers your entire organization to ask any question of any data in any environment on any device. It is a scalable and secure public cloud service that provides a full set of capabilities to explore and perform collaborative analytics for you, your work-group, and your enterprise. Our BI team has experience on the capabilities of this product and I invite you to reach out for more information and to view the several OAC recorded webinars in the Vertical Edge Webinar Library.

Our Vertical Edge team is committed to staying at the forefront of technology to help you maximize your Oracle investment by providing solutions that meet the needs of your company or organization, therefore maximizing your Oracle investment. Further, while achieving your specific business goals, we remain steadfast in our commitment to deliver on-time and within budget.

We hope that fun and happy memories fill your remaining summer days. Please remember that the Vertical Edge Team is just a click away. We welcome you to connect with us on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook.

The Lowdown on Drillbridge

Drill Through Reporting is a crucial requirement for most organizations looking to provide detailed, transaction-level analysis behind summary balances in Essbase and Planning applications.  Unfortunately, the out of the box drill through functionality is very limited.  Drillbridge is an add-on software that gives the Drill-Through Reporting that all organizations desire.  Drillbridge provides an easy to use wizard-based platform with the flexibility to create drill-through links to almost any data source.  Key benefits of Drillbridge include:

  • Takes a flexible approach to drill-through
  • Drill-through from Smart View, Planning, PBCS, and FR (classic/web)
  • Non-invasive and no changes to cube automation or administration
  • Typically uses existing relational databases
  • Use existing servers (often APS/middle-tier server)
  • Works with most relational databases
  • Quicker to implement
  • Extensive customization
