Q & A with ODTUG SP Conference Presenter, Anthony Stefanac James & Munroe

Anthony is one of the owners of James & Munroe, specialists in Enterprise Architecture, Support and Implementation of Hyperion products. He will be presenting ‘Making your Life easier with EPM utilities’ at our SP Conference being held in Sydney, 3rd and 4th November this year.

 Q: What made you start working with Oracle BI & EPM Products?

I started as a graduate at Qantas who were using Hyperion as their BI tool to initially report management information and their route profitability.   I thought the technology was great, as it gave decision makers quick access to information in a structured and logical way to assist with strategic corporate initiatives.  I moved into Consulting to further develop my Hyperion EPM & BI skills from there.

 Q: What has been the biggest improvement that you can see with these products?

Stability, Performance Improvements and improved Integration between all of the Oracle products. It is still early days to being perfect from an integration perspective but it is definitely heading in the right direction.

Q: What is the most common type of issue your clients have?

Demands from the business to report results on a more timely basis and have greater visibility to their information.   With requirements for closer integration between transactional, operational and management systems and the constant introduction of new Oracle products, we are continuing to find improved solutions to achieve this.

Q: Why do you think an Oracle, BI or EPM user should attend the conference?

They will have the opportunity to meet like-minded individuals in different industries to share their experiences and knowledge.  They will also have the opportunity to hear from and meet with global product leaders and see product demonstrations of the latest Oracle offerings from a practical perspective.  Often training in products is too high level for people who have gained working knowledge of the applications.  They need the tips and tricks to get further efficiency gains, which is exactly what this training will offer.
