This one is very annoying – wish I had learned about it earlier.
New version of the OBIEE Sample App is now available for download. For those who might now know what this is – it’s a per-configured environment that’s ready to operate, so you don’t have to spend hours installing DB stack along with OBIEE -but could get straight to the point. Could be useful to those who have not seen it before and consider an upgrade, or those who would want to learn OBIEE. Regardless – great job and definitely something to download and experiment with in case you work with OBIEE. Of course, the hardcore guys always install it themselves, but for others – it’s great. Well done, BIEE PM Group!

Do not use the administrative account to present reports to the users and avoid providing it to users, there is high risk of breaking/deleting something by accident. Consider automating deployments to avoid having to deal with passwords manually.

I think that certain OBIEE implementations never deviate from the default look and feel – and sometimes it is possible to improve user experience by doing certain things (such as creating index dashboard with links to other content, similar how it’s done in the Sample Apps).
Although officially not started, OOW 12 is going extremely well. I’ve been to some of the amazing sessions (Exalitics by Mark Rittman and Real Time Analytics by Jon Mead) , experienced good atmosphere, and met very interesting people.
