Moreover, this position offers skills enrichment in the BI space with similar software tools as well as other software to be learned and used.

We have established good relations with the hiring company for whom we have delivered our services in the recent past. This hiring company is stable, has been in business since the early 1950’s, is strong financially, and has had no lay-offs over the past 18 years.

Background info
The client originally used Hyperion Essbase, and later added Hyperion Planning. They are now using Hyperion System 9 and exploring Hyperion’s cost accounting system. They will probably upgrade to System 11 within the next two years. There is a long-term initiative underway which will require expanding the use of the Hyperion products. Other initiatives are underway which present added skills enrichment opportunities. They are supporting both ASO and BSO models and using Web Analysis. The various companies under the parent umbrella share the same chart of accounts, so they are not using a consolidation product. They are currently supporting 8 or 9 Essbase cubes which are mostly financial (e.g., A/P, Payroll, G/L, revenue), and Essbase provides the reporting solution for their Lawson G/L software.

Qualifications required
Experience interacting with and gathering business requirements from end-users, and translating those into specifications on through to go-live, training, and support.

Full life-cycle systems experience using Hyperion Essbase and EIS (Essbase Integration Services) and a willingness to learn SQL Server SSIS, and Business Intelligence Development Studio.

Qualifications preferred
Experience with VB.net or VB script, Java or C#, and Hyperion or SQL Server certified
