3 3 Company Overview STAR ANALYTICS  Solid Team with deep BI background  Delivering Technology to Address BI Integration and Automation Requirements  Oracle Technology Partner  Headquartered in San Mateo, CA  Solutions for Automation and Integration  “Oracle EPM Ready”  Easy & Fast deployments  Customer’s Love It! Star Technology

4 4 Products STAR ANALYTICS Star Analytics offers two products for automation and integration  Star Integration Server (SIS) for integration of your BI environment  Star Command Center (SCC) for automation of your BI environment  Essbase  Planning  HFM Flat Files Data, Meta Data &Security  Extracts data, metadata and security for loading in to DB or reporting applications  Supports Essbase ASO, BSO, Planning, HFM  Automated, near real- time INTEGRATION  Process Automation  Workflow Orchestration  Life Cycle Management  Audit & Compliance  Self-Service Automation AUTOMATION Open Reporting Standards / RDBMS

5 5 Typical Automation Environment STAR COMMAND CENTER Heterogeneous Applications Brittle Custom Code Manual Processes Lack of Control No Audit Trail / No Compliance / No Visibility

6 6 Traditional Approaches STAR COMMAND CENTER Traditional Approaches  Stay Manual  IT-based Scheduling Tools  Scripting/Coding Result  Time Consuming  Error Prone  Not “BI Aware”  Not Built for a Business User  Brittle & Non-compliant  Labor Intensive  Costly

7 7 Deployment STAR COMMAND CENTER

8 8 Deployment STAR COMMAND CENTER  Orchestrate applications, either on-premise or in the Cloud

9 9 Deployment STAR COMMAND CENTER  Orchestrate applications, either on-premise or in the Cloud  Libraries of business functions eliminating custom code

10 10 Deployment STAR COMMAND CENTER  Orchestrate applications, either on-premise or in the Cloud  Libraries of business functions eliminating custom code  Business friendly interface that supports mobility

11 11 Deployment STAR COMMAND CENTER  Orchestrate applications, either on-premise or in the Cloud  Libraries of business functions eliminating custom code  Business friendly interface that supports mobility  Central repository for compliance and audit

12 12 Deployment STAR COMMAND CENTER  Orchestrate applications, either on-premise or in the Cloud  Libraries of business functions eliminating custom code  Business friendly interface that supports mobility  Central repository for compliance and audit  Handshake with Enterprise Schedulers and Web Services

13 13 Deployment STAR COMMAND CENTER  Orchestrate applications, either on-premise or in the Cloud  Libraries of business functions eliminating custom code  Business friendly interface that supports mobility  Central repository for compliance and audit  Handshake with Enterprise Schedulers and Web Services  Any Application with a command-line interface

14 14 Key Benefits STAR COMMAND CENTER Automation Across Any Platform Seamlessly automates hybrid computing environments and applications that coexist on-premise and in the cloud. Workflow Orchestration Easily sequence tasks across computing platforms and applications. Eliminates Custom Code Libraries of Plugin Task Packs eliminates the need for complex application interfaces and expensive IT resources. Control & Compliance Provides an audit trial to see who ran what, where, when and how. Automation Life Cycle Management Provides source control and audit history between development, test and production environments. Self Service Automation Authorized business users can have ‘on-demand’ access to the processes they need to control. Mobility & Flexibility Automations can be run and monitored from any Smartphone browser to support a mobile workforce. Easy Implementation Leverages existing infrastructure and designed to be used by business users.

16 AGENDA 16  Introduction to Star Analytics  Star Integration Server  Star Command Center  Case Studies  CS #1 – General EPM Automation  CS #2 – Self-Service Automation for Business Users  CS #3 – Orchestrate Start & Stop of Services  CS #4 – Monitor Servers & Services  CS #5 – HFM & FDM Automation  CS #6 – Planning Automation  CS #7 – Automated Data Reconciliation  Review & Wrap-up OVERVIEW

17 17 General EPM Automation CASE STUDY #1  Sequence tasks across different applications & servers  Remove Slack-time  Full Visibility to all running processes  Ability to resume if errors exist

18 18 Self-Service Automation for Business Users CASE STUDY #2  Enable Business users to login and run own processes  Access to Read / Write / Run – Dev, Test, Prod  Full support for Single Sign-on with HTTPS access

19 19 Orchestrate the Start & Stop of Services CASE STUDY #3  Start / Stop Services across all servers  Distributed servers can start services in parallel  Ensure application is started before moving to the next service  Actively monitor from any SCC Interface  No tricky code or artificial “wait times”

20 20 Monitor Servers & Services CASE STUDY #4  Monitor server health, services and EPM application health  Tie health check into daily automation

21 21 HFM & FDM Orchestration with other Processes CASE STUDY #5  Removal of significant amount of manual processes  HFM & FDM operations sequenced with other required automation in job chain  Significant increase in Oracle EPM Satisfaction

22 22 Hyperion Planning Automation CASE STUDY #6  Automate Set Login Level (All Users, Administrators, Owner)  Automate Planning Data Copy Jobs

23 23 Automated Data Reconciliation – Type I CASE STUDY #7 Essbase / Planning Planning RDB Repository Flat File Star Command Center Data Comparison -Simple Checksum

24 24 Automated Data Reconciliation – Type II CASE STUDY #7 Essbase BSO & ASO Oracle RDBMS Star Command Center Record by Record Data Comparison (via Relational) HFM SIS FDM

25 25 SQL View to Compare Two Records Sets with Star’s Enhanced Error Trapping CASE STUDY #7 SELECT e.* FROM dbo.A_FACT e LEFT OUTER JOIN dbo.B_FACT h ON h.Year = e.Year AND h.Measures = e.Measures AND h.Product = e.Product AND h.Market = e.Market AND h.Scenario = e.Scenario AND ABS(h.data - e.data) < 1 WHERE h.Measures is null AND h.Year is null and h.Measures is null and h.Product is null and h.Market is null and h.Scenario is null and h.DATA is null Leverages off-the-self interfaces Rich Error Trapping & Branching w/o coding Easy to Interpret Summary Information Simple ANSI SQL QUERY: select 'Market: ' + Market + ' Month: ' + Year + ' Account: ' + Measures + ' <--- Do Not Reconcile' from STAR_ESSBASE.dbo.vwCHECK_SUM_FACT_AB

26 26 Real-time BSO  ASO CASE STUDY #8 Star Integration Server (SIS) Essbase / Planning Planning Page Slicers are Passed as Parameters via HTTP (S) Task #1 Run Allocation Star Command Center Server (SCC) c Run Process Extraction based upon Planning Slicers Essbase ASO Task #2 Extract allocated data. Task #3 Load ASO Cube
