What you will learn

This Oracle Essbase 11.1.2: Calculate Block Storage Databases ( training teaches you the principal techniques and theories for the design of calculations in block storage databases with Essbase Release Expert Oracle University instructors will review database structure and configuration and teach you basic calculation building blocks, including FIX and IF statements.

Learn To:

  • Describe Essbase and block storage database structures.
  • Develop and test calculation scripts.
  • Develop advanced calculations.
  • Optimize databases though dynamic calculations.
  • Normalize and allocate data.

Benefits to You

By enrolling in this course, you'll become familiar with calculation script development methodology and how to correct common calculation errors. You'll learn how to effectively leverage dynamic calculations to optimize database performance and create advanced calculation scripts, such as allocations, cross-database calculations and multidimensional range calculations. By participating in design discussions and hands-on practice sessions, you'll reinforce your understanding of important Essbase concepts.
