What the Heck Is EPM Anyway? Connecting APEX to Another World…

You may have noticed that there is a whole other part of the Kscope conference populated with people walking around getting all excited about something called EPM. You know, the people that get that blank look on their face when they ask what you do and you answer, "I develop with APEX."

Well, it's a whole 'nuther world out there, with opportunities galore for you to use your APEX skillset and develop useful applications that aid not only the EPM user but especially the EPM administrators.

In this session, you'll learn what Oracle EPM is all about and what it is used for. We will explore how APEX could be used to integrate common information and tasks from EPM systems into a secure application that can be used everywhere from your PC to your tablet to your favorite mobile device. You'll learn about how authentication and authorization works with connections to EPM and how to create a simple application that communicates with EPM through EPM Cloud's vast library of REST API calls.
