We have several customers that have successfully used OFA and OSA for years and are still getting value out of it.  We want to make sure you are well covered when this software is officially de-supported from Oracle. We have presentations on comparisons of Essbase and Oracle OLAP, two common technologies for replacing OFA and OSA and other Express-based applications.  Hyperion Planning could be another migration path.  Check out Oracles website for additional information on the de-support for OFA or OSA.
