    I totally agree this is an exciting area. From what we've seen, though, the Hyperion MDM solution appears mostly oriented to maintaining financial hierarchies in Essbase. While you may be able to stretch it other areas, not having a web-front end for data stewards to maintain the members is a serious flaw. Hyperion MDM has a read-only web portal currently (although they are supposed to be addressing this in the future), so if you want to edit the data, you'll need to install the thick client application throughout your organization to take full advantage. This is a non-starter for most Global 2000 organizations.
