Why this blog?

Finding information from Oracle/Hyperion can be difficult as you search the thousands of pages of documentation. So I'm creating this blog with all of my tables and matrices for the Oracle Hyperion products. Questions like - How does Smart View compare to the Excel add-in? When should I use Financial Reporting or Web Analysis? I thought I would share this information with you in the simple format of tables and maybe a few bullet points. So no lengthy paragraphs on this blog... but hopefully some helpful Oracle Hyperion information.

Excel Add-in vs. Smart View 9.3.1 - 50,000 Foot View

This tables compares the Excel Add-in vs. Smart View from a high level. The main point you'll find here is that the Excel Add-in only works with Essbase and Excel while Smart View works with the full suite of Hyperion products and with all of the Office products (including PowerPoint and Word).
