Critical Patch Update (CPU)

On 18 October 2016, Oracle released the latest quarterly CPU’s. There were no Hyperion Critical Patch Updates, which is good news; for the last two years, Oracle detected no apparent security or other defects to resolve.

Patch Set Update (PSU)

If your environment is on the latest PSU, the CPU’s related to the Hyperion / Oracle EPM product will also be applied.
