learn to build performing Essbase solutions

Have you ever been in a team that was halfway their Oracle EPM project and just discovered that the underlying database, called Essbase, did not perform at all? It is astonishing how fast a good project vibe can turn into a toxic atmosphere.

You might be tempted to add additional machine power. And of course, that will help a bit. But that’s mostly temporary. Remember, Essbase is a multidimensional database, right? Bad performance grows exponentially.

What you need is someone with the guts to stand up and learn about good Essbase design and get it over with. That is, someone that fixes the root cause: bad Essbase design. And you know what, that hero could be you! On this site we share our precious “nuggets” on how to improve existing Essbase and PBCS implementations and how to avoid design mistakes in the first place for new implementations.

Is that difficult? Isn’t Essbase very hard to learn?

Well, it does take some time but it is certainly no “rocket science”. With the proper “design patterns”, a bit of reading on this site, a good advanced Essbase training and a hands-on coach at your disposal a rock-solid Essbase solution is also possible for your team.

We’re more than happy to share our knowledge with you, so you could become the Essbase hero for your organization.

On this websites and in our training and coaching sessions, we will share practical Essbase knowledge and tips-and-tricks based on the Dutch School of Essbase Design. These principles are based on over a combined 30 years of in-the-field Essbase experience. We are sure they will help you to create future-proof agile EPM solutions that have Essbase as primary database engine.

Of course, you can always ask us for a bit of advice, for training or just for an ear to drop your Essbase frustrations. We are sure we can draft out the steps for you and your team to a stressless Essbase project.
Prior to the Essbase training I had next to no knowledge on the subject. Arthur explains the concepts in a very clear matter and provides relevant examples. I enjoyed the small impromptu “quizzes” which ensured that everyone truly understood the core concepts

I can confidently say that I now have the right foundation to continue growing my knowledge in Essbase.student feedback from Essbase training, 2017
