Create a Security Plan with Oracle Hyperion Financial Management

Cris Dunn, project manager at Perficient, recently wrote a blog on Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) and the separation of duties between application administrative functionality and systems administration functionality.

For new implementations, the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) suite of products brings a new regimen of security terminology, often times making auditors cringe. Historically, Financial Management, and its predecessor Hyperion Enterprise, have been fully administered by finance or accounting managers thus totally eliminating any possibility of change management or control. In recent versions of Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM), organizations are able to draw clear lines of separation between application administrative functionality and systems administration functionality.

This article is not intended to help establish a process for defining policy but should provide some guidelines for establishing a security plan in other organizations.
