Hi Essbase/Planning gurus, i am new to hyperion essbase/planning, please help me on below questions.
1) Difference between essbase technical consultant and functional consultant (Roles)
2) Difference between Hyperion planning technical consultant and functional consultant (Roles)
Thanks in advance,
I will give it a try.
Essbase and Planning have technically a different concept of roles. I think, this was not your question about.
When looking at the job responsibilities of a technical consultant in Essbase then he/she will be responsible for the server. Take care that it is running performant, has sufficient resources etc.. The person will monitor log files for possible or upcoming problems. Further, the person will set-up connections to other data sources if needed. The person will know about the OS, Networks, Webservers and the technical side of Essbase/Planning.
The functional consultant will know the details of the application(s) and will maintain them for the users. He/she will create changes to the application and helps the users to use the product. The person will know about finance/controlling and the application side of Essbase/Planning.
Functional Consultant roles
Co-ordinating with the management leads, analyze potential business process change issues, including determining the nature of the change and recommending solutions.
