You begin this course by discussing the products and architecture of Oracle's Enterprise Performance Management System, with a focus on Reporting and Analysis. Through a series of installations and configurations, you build an environment that consists of Foundation Services, Reporting and Analysis, and Essbase. From there, you provide high availability, load balancing, and failover support to all the components. Next, you examine how to implement SSL.

The second half of the course focuses on user and content administration. You begin by learning how to provision users for EPM System and configure external user directories. Next, you gain some experience designing and scheduling reports with Interactive Reporting, Web Analysis, Financial Reporting, and SQR Production Reporting Studio. You learn to configure Workspace features and troubleshoot installations by using logs. Lastly, you learn to migrate Reporting and Analysis content by using Lifecycle Management.
