Hyperion EPM and Applications Unlimited

As announced for other applications, like Oracle EBS, Oracle introduced the “Continuous Innovation” release model for Hyperion EPM 11.2, making Hyperion part of Oracle’s Applications Unlimited. Applications Unlimited is Oracle’s commitment to continuous innovation while also providing a commitment to offer Oracle Premier Support through at least 2030.

Hyperion EPM 11.2

 

This means that they will be delivering ongoing applications and underlying technology stack updates for Hyperion EPM 11.2 without requiring a major upgrade. Updates will be cumulative and will combine bug fixes and new features into a consolidated patch set that can be easily applied with O-Patch.

In addition, 11.2 is the long-term support release for Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management, with Oracle Premier Support available through at least 2031.

As Hyperion EPM joins Oracle Applications Unlimited, enhancements are driven by customer needs and priorities and provides a more agile delivery mechanism with smaller releases for easier adoption.

What is the current version of EPM?

It is important to understand that your current version of EPM should be on 11.1.2.4.x to be able to upgrade to 11.2. If your system is not on 11.1.2.4.X, you need to perform an “In-Place” upgrade to 11.1.2.4.x first.
