What Should You Consider Before Moving to Cloud?

May 24, 2023

Moving to the cloud can bring many benefits to an organization, but it also requires careful planning and execution. In this article, we will discuss key considerations for migrating Hyperion to the cloud, including how to deploy or migrate Hyperion, how to secure Hyperion, how to implement high availability and disaster recovery, and how to track and manage costs.

Challenges You Might Face While Migrating to Cloud

Migration to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI): Migrating Hyperion to OCI can be a complex process, requiring careful planning and execution. It's important to consider the impact of the migration on existing systems and processes, as well as the potential risks and challenges involved.

Test Data to OBIEE: When migrating Hyperion to the cloud, it's important to ensure that test data is properly migrated to OBIEE. This can be a time-consuming and complex process, requiring careful coordination and testing.

Keeping Production Instances Up to Date: Once Hyperion is migrated to the cloud, it's important to keep production instances updated with the latest patches and updates. This can be a challenging task, requiring careful monitoring and management.


TCO Analysis of Hyperion On-Prem and OCI

When considering a move to the cloud, conducting a TCO analysis is important to compare the costs of running Hyperion on-premises versus in the cloud. This analysis should take into account factors such as infrastructure costs, maintenance costs, and support costs.

The Solution

  • Automate the metadata interfaces using ODI in the application for ECE, Cost Center, Intercompany, Customer, Tracking Code, Business Line, and other dimensions related to the application.
  • Monitoring performance across the enterprise to improve business performance.
  • Configuring and testing the existing process for loading data and metadata with third-party application systems such as Oracle Financials, Oracle FAS, Workday, and OBIEE.
  • Configuring and testing the system connectivity.

Business Benefits

  • Manage solutions and applications, not infrastructure: By moving Hyperion to the cloud, organizations can focus on managing solutions and applications rather than infrastructure.
  • Focus on their core business, not on IT: By outsourcing IT infrastructure and management to the cloud, organizations can focus on their core business and grow faster.
  • Improve performance and availability: Cloud-based solutions are typically more scalable and reliable, which can improve performance and availability for Hyperion.
  • Reduce cost: By moving Hyperion to the cloud, organizations can reduce costs associated with infrastructure, maintenance, and support.


In conclusion, moving Hyperion to the cloud can bring many benefits to an organization, but it also requires careful planning and execution. By considering the challenges and solutions discussed in this article, organizations can successfully migrate Hyperion to the cloud and reap the benefits of improved performance, availability, and cost savings.
