Today I read an article by Jeff McQuigg (a leading Oracle Business Intelligence expert) who wrote about often overlooked topic – prototyping in OBIEE. I think it’s a great way to deliver OBIEE solution fast and effectively. There might be several organizational issues – such as users’ good will and availability, knowledge of the data, and scheduling meetings – but in general – I think it’s great way to proceed. And I think such a meeting would look like this:
I’m very happy that BI Forum 2010 is going well. It seems as all BI consulting gurus and those wishing to join their rank are having a blast – just read their Twitter feed Bi Forum tweeter feed.
I want to make a point to attend next year. Unfortunately, due to some passport-visa circumstances beyond my control (hint – New Schengen visa rules which invalidates passports issued more than 10 years ago – even if they’re still valid) , it’s not possible for me to travel to Europe until I replace my passport. Unfortunately, I’m not the only one affected by this – I know that there’re many people from India in the US (issued passports with 20 year validity) who are not able to travel to Europe due to new Schengen rules, and for them, it’s burdensome to travel to India, since they have to get the new passport at the same place where it was issued.
My warm greetings to everyone. I hope I can make it to DC this year for Kaleidoscope.
