1:00 – 1:05 PM (EST) / Welcome Remarks – Tim Tow, Applied OLAP
1:05 – 1:40 PM (EST) / LexisNexis utilizes Dodeca to EXCEL with PowerPoint
LexisNexis has been working closely with the development team at Applied OLAP since Kscope22 to test and implement the ability to automate the creation of PowerPoint decks used in our business and forecast reviews. These decks are filled with many of our Dodeca views and our Finance teams are currently manually copying images into those decks of the views. When the data in our Essbase reporting cubes changes between the creation of the initial deck and any meetings, the images need to be manually updated. Additionally, we have been working with our executives to move the process of gathering and setting Key Performance Objectives (KPOs) from PowerPoint and email and collecting them inside of Dodeca and our SQL data warehouse for load into Workday, once finalized.
Victor Turner & Jimmy Hellyer
1:45 – 2:00 PM (EST) / Export to PowerPoint Technical Overview
In our 8.3 release we will include new functionality allowing you to export a Dodeca View snapshot to PowerPoint. The module is available for previous versions so an upgrade is not always necessary. In this session we’ll cover the technical basics from installing the module to adding this feature to an existing view.
Tim Faitsch, Applied OLAP
2:05 – 2:15 PM (EST) / Keeping Things Fresh with New Controls at Kroger

2:30 – 3:10 PM (EST) / Beyond Reporting. Clever Uses for Dodeca at Principal Financial Group
