About Ari Gerber

My own journey with Oracle Essbase might mirror your own. I’ve always had an affection for business and even had my own small businesses in the past. When I started working in high tech, I was particularly interested in business reporting and analysis tools. I’ve worked in a number of software development companies, focusing on databases. I used Microsoft Excel at times, but then I came across Oracle Essbase.

There was a learning curve, but the payoff is that it’s one of the best multi-dimensional analysis tools out there and feature rich. You can still use the Excel interface, but leverage Smart View to perform ad hoc analysis.

If you haven’t already, you can join others who migrated their Oracle Essbase applications, artifacts and users from Oracle Analytics Cloud or even from Oracle Essbase 11g on premise.
