It has taken me a long time to get this blog set up and ready to go, so please excuse me if I take a moment to thank the two main movers in that effort: My wife Kathy Walsh and my friend Cameron Lackpour. The order in which I have thanked them is well defined. The ranking as to which one of these two can claim the “Primary Nagger” award I leave to them to debate.
As I mentioned above, this blog will focus on the mechanics and inner workings of Essbase, with a trouble-light shining on ASO, to the extent that I can either divine them or discover them by asking questions. To those of you familiar with my other writings, this should come as no surprise.
Of course, I work on the entire gamut of applications within EPM and also frequently am called on for complex (often hierarchical) SQL development and to write automation scripts in both Windows and UNIX. Initially, I will include a number of these topics in my blogs. There are a number of self-directed emails over the past few years to remind me of potential topics to explore. Now I have the vehicle and I hope you will enjoy the ride with me.
