This service currently includes: Essbase Analytic applications (Finance and FCACall Cubes); Oracle Business Intelligence (OBI) (Loans2); and the Financial Planning and Budgeting applications (5 to 10-Year Forecasting, Rolling Forecast and Scenario Analysis).

This service covers database management and updates, ongoing application enhancements, Oracle annual software maintenance fees, administrator help desk support and implementation of Oracle-Hyperion software upgrades.
