What is the basic difference between Hyperion Planning and HFM

Hi GURU'S,
what is the basic difference between Hyperion Planning and HFM and when do we choose them.

On a high level the difference is this:
1. HFM is best for global collection (collecting data from scattered entities), group consolidation and for easily structuring financial reporting (mainly consisting of financial data)
2. Planning is best for modeling your business, starting from a demand forecast and arriving to capacity planning and finally to financial statements, by utilizing business drivers (non-financial data like volumes, prices, productivity rates etc)
Of course, differences may be analyzed at several levels down to technical, but the discussion may turn out to be too long, yet adding little value to the question: "when do we choose the one over the other". Bear in mind that your requirements may turn out that you need both.

  • What is major difference between hyperion planning and hyperion essbase

    hi
    what is the differences between hyperion planning and hyperion essbase.i dont know about planning much.but as far i know.i think we can do every thing in essbase also(planning,budgeting and forecasting)
    what u say.what we actually do in planning.
    regards
    bharat

    Hi Bharat
    Although as you mention in your post Essbase can do plans/budgets etc it may not be simple to provide complex planning process control and ease of data entry etc.
    Planning delivers these benefits and some through web delivered components such as forms, business rules and workflow for instance. There are some restrictions to using planning and these need tobe well understood before embarking on a project.
    It would be worth having a look at product sheets from Oracle and/or presentations from various events to get a feel for planning capabilities.
    Hope this helps.

  • What is the main difference between f.13 and f13e

    Hi,
       What is the main difference between f.13 and f13e.
      when clearing the document do they follow deifferent steps in selection?
    Thanks,
    Sravanthi

    Hi,
    The reason "Clearing currency" is provided is because you can clear in any currency apart from local currency. For eg if your local currency is INR and Document currency (Invoice) is USD and the customer pays in EUR, you can still clear them with the Clearing currency EUR. On the date of payment, Open items in USD will be converted into Clearing currency EUR as follows: USD to INR and from INR to EUR. (based on exchange rates between USD-INR and INR-EUR).

  • What are the major differences between UCCX v7 and v8.0.2

    Does anyone know of a matrix or document which shows the major differences between UCCX v7 and v8.0.2?
    I have looked high and low, even searched this forum, but have not found anything.
    I've even looked at release notes in 8.0.2 but couldn't see anywhere that states the changes.
    Any help appreciated.

    Hi,
    I have awarded you both with the 'correct answer'.
    I went through, painstakingly, the documents I was linked to above and compared.
    In the end the major differences are pretty much what you have outlined here - which is exactly what I wanted.
    Thank you both very much.
    Cheers,

    Hi,
    Can anybody tel me the exact difference between Database Cloning and Database Refresh?
    I Have some conflicts in these topics.
    Thanks
    Rajesh

    Refresh is what it says, "refresh" . You have a main site which would always have the data being inserted into it. There would be another site which would remain some where else . This site needs to be refreshed with the primary site. So you need to do export from the primary, push it to the secondary site and done!

    In addition to Bob Timmons' link the main differences are as follows:
    Extreme has a slightly more powerful antenna (might not be true but from experience it seems to be)
    Extreme has USB HDD sharing
    Express has AirPlay
    Extreme has 3 Gigabit ports (don't be confused by Apple's page. Apple states 4 including WAN, 3 without WAN)

  • What are the main differences between Signal Express and Labview?

    National Instruments provides a matrix so one can quickly compare the
    various versions of Labview but no comparison of Signal Express with
    Labview. Hence how does Signal Express compare with Labview? What
    are some of the things one can do with Labview one can't do with
    Signal Express?

    Howard,
    You clearly don't know what you are talking about. There is no "graphical version" of LabVIEW, there is just LabVIEW. Click on the article "Is LabVIEW a general purpose programming language?" written by the Jeff K. for some easy reading from a few years ago. It is all still true (except that object oriented features and recursion have been added in recent versions).
    One of the main points at this years NI-week was the discussion of how processor development is switching more and more to multicore designs  to improve performance because a simple boost in clock frequency is becoming more difficult. Linear, text based code is not well suited to take advantage of multticore design, while the dataflow based LabVIEW programming language automatically scales well to multiple processor cores, without any need to rewrite older code. I would say that only LabVIEW is futureproof in this respect. LabVIEW programmers are not wimps that are simply too stupid to write text based code. LabVIEW is not a toy language for people that don't want to learn a "real" programming language.
    LabVIEW is arguably the best programming language in terms of getting things done! I've never felt limited with LabVIEW and my programs often don't even have anything to do with data acquisition or instrument control. The difference between text based code vs. LabVIEW is like "DOS vs. Windows", "Radio vs. HD television". "Trilobyte vs. Homo sapiens" (sorry Putnam ). Text based code is monochrome, archaic and outdated and its linearity imposes unecessary constraints on the programmer that can only be (partially) overcome by wasting even more time throwing even more code at it.
    Sure, a seasoned text based programmer will initially have problems adapting to LabVIEW, just because you would need to adapt to and embrace the power of dataflow and not try to make a literal translation of the text code to LabVIEW, retaining old habits. If you get stuck, come back and ask here in the forum.
    You were looking for object oriented features and failed. All you need to do is a quick site search. All the information is out there. Just because you cannot find it in the first five sentences of the glossy brochure does not mean it does not exist. Maybe you want to read one of the application notes such as:
    LabVIEW Object-Oriented Programming: The Decisions Behind the Design
    In general, you should avoid judgement until you have all information. Your opinions seem quite biased and superficial and not really based on hard facts.
    Initially you asked about the difference between signal express and LabVIEW.

    No thanks, there has to be a better way to get an answer to my
    question than get involved in a two month study project.
    If you would answer the first question quoted above, we could certainly help you with the decision. Isn't that the main purpose of this thread?
    You can also contact your local LabVIEW Field Engineer to go over your requirements and help you make a decision. They usually know their stuff!

  • What are the Basic Differences between Oracle and  MS-SQL server Database?

    Hello,
            anybody pls Guide me about the Differences between Oracle and MS-SQL server Database.and also IBM Databases also
    Regards,
    Balaram

    SQL Server only works on Windows-based platforms, including Windows 9x, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows CE.
    In comparison with SQL Server , OracleDatabase supports all known platforms, including Windows-based platforms, AIX-Based Systems, Compaq Tru64 UNIX, HP 9000 Series HP-UX, Linux Intel, Sun Solaris and so on.
    The SQL Server  advantages:
    SQL Server  holds the top TPC-C performance and price/performance results.
    SQL Server  is generally accepted as easier to install, use and manage.
    The Oracle  Database advantages:
    Oracle  Database supports all known platforms, not only the Windows-based platforms.
    PL/SQL is more powerful language than T-SQL.
    More fine-tuning to the configuration can be done via start-up parameters.

  • What's the functional difference between placeholder text and regular text?

    When inserting text into a project template that I'm creating, what's the difference between inserting regular text (using the Caption tool) and inserting placeholder text?
    There's an obvious difference between inserting an image and an image placeholder, but when I use a project template that I've created, placeholder text and caption text behave the same way: I see the text on the stage, and double-click it to edit. So why go through the extra step of inserting placeholder text?

    Textbooks are educational books for use in schools and universities and the like. They are currently avaiable for purchase only in the USA. Textbooks have different contract clauses applied to them. Among them is an obligation on the publisher to offer textbooks that are sold in electronic form via other distributors in the iBookstore as well. Textbooks also have different (much lower) pricing tiers, and they must be made available via the bulk purchasing program. Textbooks must be authored with IBA (they cannot be ePub). I believe that textbooks also undergo a more stringent review process.
    Normal eBooks (not in the textbook category) can currently be sold in 32 territories (US, Canada, Australia, and most of Europe), and their pricing tiers provide for much higher prices.
    There is no difference in the widgets you can use in normal books and textbooks. The same widget set that is provided by IBA applies to both. In addition, a normal eBook can be published in ePub format and, therefore, authored with software other than IBA.
    Books can contain audio and video and, yes, iBooks Author allows you to create such books.

  • What are the main differences between 9 iAS and Oracle 8.1.7 ?

    My question is focus on JServ/JVM/EJB Deployment.
    1. They both provide Appach JServ to support JSP/Servlet application
    2. They both provide JVM 8i to support EJB 1.1.
    3. You can deploy JSP/Servlet application to JVM via mod_ose.
    4. On the White paper about 9 iAS, it says you can deploy applications into JDK JVM or Oracle 8i JVM, does that also apply to EJB? If so, how can you do it (with JDev 3.2 not some other command line tool?), it that one of the different between two products?
    5. Since 8.1.7, application server and database server were built into a package, why on 9i to separate them into two (or three) parts again? - what is the benefit for customers?
    Thanks
