This release is more than just a bunch of fixes as it brings in new products, a multitude of product enhancements and changes to installation and configuration which I will be covering today.

Defect Number – 13798468

The first tip is for speeding up data loads to essbase databases and while it may be obvious to many people I often find this setting in the IKM left as default and hear complaints that apparently the essbase adaptor is slow at loading data.
When you first create an interface to load data to an essbase database you will see an option in the IKM called COMMIT_INTERVAL.
