Hi to all,

My client is a large retail company, we have 10 planning and essbase  cubes ranging from 1 to 32 GB of storage.

Our version is and we use only the essbase features nothing of forms, aproval process, task lists etc.

We however load via smart view and ODI actuals and budget drivers, and we do plan for CAPEX, Workforce, Revenue and Expenses all custom made via calc scripts.

Our infrastructure (server+storage) is outsourced to a provider, thats where all our  hyperion stack resides, together with some other non hyperion apps.

We  have 512 GB of memory, unlimited HD storage and 64 CPU's on the Linux box where essbase is installed.

One of our bottlenecks is the refresh time it takes two hours sometimes, creating a bad humor among our users. Also the aggregation time for a full year actuas takes 1.30 to 2 hours sometimes.

I would like your opinion on EPBCS, can it solve these performance issues and spin-off our budget process? Or it is wiser to upgrade to and use the hybrid cubes?

Please comment.

Regards to all
