OraE1112:CBSD Oracle Essbase 11.1.2: Calculate Block Storage Databases

Oracle Course Description:
In this course, you learn the principal techniques and theories for the design of calculations in block storage databases with Essbase Release 11.1.2. You review database structure and configuration and learn basic calculation building blocks, such as FIX and IF statements. You learn a calculation script development methodology and how to correct common calculation errors. You learn how to effectively leverage dynamic calculations to optimize database performance, and create advanced calculation scripts, such as allocations, cross-database calculations, and multidimensional range calculations. Design discussions and hands-on practice sessions help reinforce important Essbase concepts.
