Twelve Ways Dodeca Makes Essbase Better
Essbase Made Easy:
Dodeca does not require that users have Essbase training, or even an awareness of Essbase, which allows Essbase to be used more widely across an organization.
More Version Support:
Dodeca significantly reduces maintenance overhead and allows for painless upgrades by supporting every version of Essbase from 6.5.3 through 126.96.36.199 within a single instance of Dodeca.
Managed Spreadsheet Experience:
Dodeca simplifies accurate spreadsheet-based reporting. Dodeca provides a secure, centralized database to manage spreadsheet templates, which are created and maintained by authorized company spreadsheet experts and consumed by end users.
Dodeca maps the Essbase database connection(s) in the report definition ensuring that users get the correct data from the right database.
Essbase Option Control:
Dodeca administrators control the Essbase options available to users, which eliminates confusion resulting from inappropriate or unfamiliar option choices.
Essbase and Relational Integration:
Dodeca enables seamless read/write integration of both Essbase and relational data within the same workbook and on the same worksheet.
Easier Member Selection:
Dodeca point-of-view selectors can be customized to show only relevant Essbase member names, allowing users to get the information they need more quickly and easily.
Optimized Point-of-View Selectors:
Dodeca uses intelligent caching to make point-of-view selectors faster. The caching significantly reduces the amount of time necessary to show point-of-view selectors, reduces the amount of network traffic, and reduces the workload on the Essbase server.
Customizable Ad-hoc Queries:
Dodeca ad-hoc queries optionally place the user at a relevant, predefined location in the cube, which increases efficiency and minimizes the possibility of errors.
Drill-through reports in Dodeca are formatted reports that can leverage Excel features like formulas, charts, and grouping.
Simplified and Flexible Drill-through:
Dodeca supports Essbase drill-through from any Essbase cube to any relational database and does not require Essbase Integration Studio, Essbase Studio, or ERPi.
Dodeca automatically logs any updates made by users to the Essbase database and makes it easy to determine when a change was made, who made the change, and the old and new values.
