Hi,

Just wanted to know few questions regarding HFM SAP adapter for FDMEE.

1 - Does oracle provide FDMEE HFM SAP adapter or FDMEE only uses bristlecone adapter for pre-packaged integration?

2 - If there are two adapters. Is their any difference between them?

I did check oracle documentation and i found these things which are a bit ambiguous so i asked here for confirmation.

Oracle Documentation (Using a Prepackaged Integration for SAP ) says:

"For the SAP integrations, the integration partner delivers the ODI Project and Adapter XML." from this it looks like it is referring to bristlecone adapter.

Oracle License document (https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E12825_01/epm.111/epm_licensing.pdf) says:

"Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management, Enterprise Edition Adapter for Financial Management" does this refer to bristlecone adapter?

Thanks for help in advance.

Regards

    From the FDMEE readme

    SAP Integration

    If you plan to use the SAP ERP Financials or SAP BW integration, you must download the FDMEE-SAP Adapter from the Oracle partner Bristlecone’s website. Please register at the website http://www.bristleconelabs.com/edel/edel_login.asp to obtain login information. In addition, refer to the documentation provided by Bristlecone for details regarding the SAP Adapter configuration.

    If it is SAP HANA then from 11.1.2.4.210

    Integrating SAP HANA Based Data Warehouse

    FDMEE can integrate to a SAP HANA based data warehouse using the Universal Data Adapter (UDA). The Universal Data Adapter enables you to integrate external source table/view information directly into Oracle Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management, Enterprise Edition bypassing the open interface table.

    Cheers

    Please see my comments below:

    Just wanted to know few questions regarding HFM SAP adapter for FDMEE.

    1 - Does oracle provide FDMEE HFM SAP adapter or FDMEE only uses bristlecone adapter for pre-packaged integration?

    There is no FDMEE HFM SAP Adapter. You can purchase the FDMEE-SAP Adapter which are pre-packaged adapters for specific SAP ECC Ledger/Subledger and BW. You can use the FDMEE-SAP adapter to integrate with HFM or any other EPM app

    2 - If there are two adapters. Is their any difference between them?

    There are not 2 adapters.

    If you are referring to the HFM adapter it has nothing to do with SAP. It's just to use HFM with FDMEE

    I did check oracle documentation and i found these things which are a bit ambiguous so i asked here for confirmation.

    Yes

    No

    Thanks for help in advance. You'r welcome
