What can I say? I’m a geek. There comes a point in your life where you give up false pretenses and you just own it.

Well, this blog is an attempt to overcome some of the jargon when it comes to what I like doing – Enterprise Performance Management, otherwise known as EPM. In particular, it will focus on the Hyperion EPM product I’m most passionate about: Financial Data Quality Management (FDM).  FDM is the de facto data transformation tool for Oracle Hyperion applications.
