Hyperion Expert Founder
Bernard was part of the "special forces" Advanced Technology Group (ATG) at Hyperion. ATG was a group of ~10 top-notch consultants who were hand-picked from the broader consulting team which consisted of approximately 150 consultants nationwide.
Bernard has spent over fifteen working with Hyperion software and over eighteen in the software industry. Bernard has spent the majority of his career servicing the FP&A departments of the Fortune 1000 with their planning and reporting needs. Bernard also has a very strong background with regard to integration (data and master data), custom APIs, countless programming languages, and has worked extensively with web and relational database programming. Bernard has worked on all aspects of Hyperion Planning, Essbase, ODI, FDMEE, and DRM implementations including infrastructure, project management, design, requirements gathering and business analysis, build, testing, integration, training, support, troubleshooting, optimization, etc.
Bernard has many years of experience making presentations both written and orally to all levels within fortune 1000 companies. Bernard has also delivered many industry presentations to large audiences at the Hyperion Top Gun and KScope conferences. Most recently, Bernard's KScope16 FDMEE presentations were so well received that the audience far exceeded the capacity of the presentation hall and ODTUG has asked him to do encore presentations in the form of webinars following the KScope conference. Come see Bernard's presentations at KScope17! Last but not least, Bernard's long-standing Oracle-internal relationships help EPM Clarity tremendously with product issues and escalations.
