Time is running out for legacy FDM users. Oracle officially retired FDM Classic in favor of its successor, FDMEE. With your next Oracle EPM upgrade cycle Oracle requires you to migrate to FDMEE. Don’t worry; you will want to make the leap to take advantage of the many enhancements that FDMEE has to offer. (Click here for a few reasons why you will want FDMEE.)

Before migrating to FDMEE, administrators (with the assistance of a seasoned consulting partner) have an important decision to make – Which migration method is right for us?
