What are best methods for loading data into Hyperion Essbase
Posted on 2009-02-13
We have some Hyperion Essbase data loads (for the Hyperion Planning and Budgeting modules) that were written several years (and versions) ago, and I believe that MaxL script is the mechanism being used to actually load the data into Essbase. The developers who wrote the code are no longer with the company, and no knowledge transfer was done before they left, so our ability to support ETL into Hyperion is almost non-existant at this point. Now, several versions later (we are on Hyperion 9.3.x) there are some new needs to load data in Essbase. Can anyone suggest the best methods for loading into Essbase? Is MaxL script the only way to do it? Also, any suggestions for how to get up to speed on whatever tool you might suggest? Books, Oracle training, etc?
