Oracle’s April Critical Patch Update includes two new entries specifically for Oracle EPM.  In this case the two products are Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) and Oracle Financial Reporting (FR) 11.1.2.4. 

According to Oracle none of the issues (there are three different ones detailed below) are remotely exploitable, and aren’t rated as high as some previous security issues.  Still, with all things security it is best to get them resolved as soon as possible.

Application of the patches for HFM is two-fold, requiring a patch to HFM as well as a general patch to ADF:

Application of the FR patch requires only one patch, depending on your version of FR (11.1.2.4 or the .900 build):

Should you need assistance applying these updates, please let the Managed Services team at iArch Solutions know, and we will be happy to assist.

The new Oracle EPM 11.2 update has officially dropped and with it, a new support matrix.  The newest update, dubbed 11.2.1, covers support for some items that were points of concern for a lot of people in the initial December 2019 release.

Among the items addressed are:

  • Windows 2016 support is now included for the 11.2.1 update only 
  • Increased browser support: Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome are now supported

So, while it is good to see a patch/update already in the 11.2 code-line, the update still does not address a lot of ‘needs’ in the Oracle EPM suite.  The chief component lacking is support for a LINUX/UNIX OS and expanded SQL DB support.

Also, if this is your first time installing the suite, you may not even realize anything might have changed.  The online Oracle documentation references the following:

Note that files are listed on Oracle Software Delivery Cloud as 11.2.0.0.0 (for example Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System – Part 1 11.2.0.0.0) but the downloaded ZIP files contain Release 11.2.1 files.

So, nothing seems to have changed with the installation/configuration process, and the Oracle EPM suite now has some expanded coverage for Windows OS and end-user browser configuration. 

Watch here closely for anything else we find on the new version, and for those folks awaiting a new UNIX/LINUX release, sit tight.
