Scene I: Welcome to the EPMartix
The Brain: Welcome to the EPMatrix. That’s right, EPMware will now be known as the EPMatrix. My name is The Brain and I will be walking you through the EPMatrix program. Now sit back and enjoy the show. Morpheus?!
The Brain: Looks like you took the Blue pill. Morpheus, explain how this works.
Neo: What does that mean?
Cypher: It means, buckle your seatbelt, Dorothy, because Kansas is about to go bye-bye.
The Brain: Let’s go! Oh, that box that was mentioned in the title? Yes, that does exist. If there wasn’t a box, then how could you say Out-of-the-box functionality? Everything that you could possibly need in a governance tool, you will find inside the EPMatrix…. By the way if you are reading this in Morpheus’ voice that’s awesome.Ok, now on to the EPMatrix.
Scene II: The Integration
The Oracle: We're all here to do what we're all here to do. I'm interested in one thing, Neo, the future. And believe me, I know, the only way to get there is together.
Scene III: Compliance, a mystery no more
The Brain: Don’t worry EPMartix has controls…lots of controls.
EPMatrix comes fully equipped to handle some of the most basic and complex necessities of Compliance and Reporting. It can trace every transaction, even on the approval or rejection in a workflow. Dashboards can render in real time to give insight on many questions that you might have about “life.” Want to play by the rules? EPMatrix come standard with validations to those tools mentioned in the integrations talk we just had. If you integrate with Essbase then you get all the basic validations that you would possibly need to get off the ground running in no time flat. Things like alias length, member not starting with a special character, other restrictions not allowed to flow to Essbase. Including this in the tool will allow you to focus on governance related activities and quality of the workflows that are put in place.
All this is possible out of the EPMatrix box. Yes, there are more things that EPMatrix can do and it would blow your mind if I kept going. I think that Red pill is wearing off. It’s time for you to go. Before you go, one more thing. EPMatrix is “willing to wipe the slate clean, give you a fresh start”. EPMatrix had a “Subject” just recently come to them while owning another “Governance Tool” and were able to successfully swap them out.
The Brain: Ignore him he gets cranky when people leave. Thanks for coming to the EPMatrix.

The first rule of Governance! There are rules to governance!
This will be a deeper dive into the validations that come with EPMware
Why did I pick The Brain? Simply if I start calling myself Brain maybe I will get emails with Brian in them rather than Brain.
Why did I change Red to Blue and Blue to Red. Red is an Oracle color and EPMware is not Oracle, so in this case to go down the rabbit hole you must take the Blue Pill. If you have made it this far in the article make sure that when you call on EPMware you tell them The Brain said hi.
I hope you enjoyed this. I know I enjoyed writing it.
