Patching Oracle EPM/ Hyperion – Q3 2017

Each quarter, Oracle releases patches for all its products, including your Hyperion products and each quarter we give you an overview of the most important changes. Which patches are relevant to your organization?

This article lists the most recent patches for the Hyperion Products (HFM, Planning, Essbase, EPMA, Reporting, Foundation and Shares Services). For the EPM Cloud solutions, Oracle provides automatic updates. This article highlights the most important changes in FCCS and PBCS that occurred the last three months.

In this article you’ll find an overview of the most important Hyperion patches; ‘Critical Patch Updates (CPU)’ and ‘Patch Set Update (PSU)’. Would you like to know more about the different types of patches? Or do you want to know how you can find out which version your organization is using? These details can be found in the previous article regarding Oracle patches.

Critical Patch Update (CPU)

On 18 October 2016 Oracle released the latest quarterly CPU’s. Good news is that there were no Hyperion Critical Patch Updates, so no apparent security or other kinds of defects to solve.

Patch Set Update (PSU)

Below you will find the most recent patches for Hyperion version 11.1.2.3 and 11.1.2.4, these are the versions we focus on in this article.
