The 4-day HFM Bootcamp course is designed to take students through the typical steps needed in an implementation of Hyperion Financial Management (HFM). Students develop and deploy HFM as an interactive case study throughout the course.
The course begins with a general overview of HFM and how it fits into the Hyperion suite of products. The class then focuses on metadata. Both methods of metadata management—classic and EPMA—are introduced. Students then set up the HFM dimensions. Advanced topics include alternate hierarchies, attributes, and importing/exporting. Students review importing and exporting data to/from HFM, and the various alternatives available.
The next major topic is an extensive coverage of rules. Then the focus is on security, showing students how to create and manage user and group access within HFM using Shared Services. Following are various administrator topics such as creating data entry forms, setting up process control, and other available controls.
The next component of the class focuses on end-user tasks including creating and modifying grids, debits and credits with journals, inter-company reporting, process control, and building reports using Smart View.
create and deploy HFM applications and metadata, set up and maintain security, load, translate and consolidate data from external systems, create rules, and manage review process.
