OBIEE quiteness
April 19, 2010

If you’re in the UK  in late May and eager to improve your OBIEE skills, do some networking, and meet top experts in the field – I suggest you attend The Rittman Mead BI Forum. Kurt Wolff will be present (expert on all OBIEE-related topics, who worked on OBIEE’s grandfather product) for a very advanced session , where some of the topics will include:

Data modeling topics will include fact tables with different grains, solving complex security requirements, inputting user choices into formulas (for example, calculating a discounted price) without using variables, ragged hierarchies, using dynamically named physical tables, the use of specialized tables to avoid errors at query time or when setting prompts, preserving dimension values, calculations that require inner and outer joins among multiple tables, modeling a near real-time transaction environment, modeling a multi-tenant architecture.

Attendants will include: ” John Minkjan (OBIEE), Venkat Janakiraman (OBIEE, Essbase, Fusion Middleware), Mark Rittman (OBIEE, OLAP), Craig Stewart (ODI), Adam Bloom and Mike Durran (Oracle BI EE), Tony Heljula (OBIEE) and Emiel van Bockel (OBIEE, Database) and this year we are pleased to have Gerard Braat (OBIEE) and Robin Moffatt (OBIEE, Database).”

Sounds like a great opportunity to learn directly from the great OBIEE minds.

    Hi Andriy,

    Thanks for the plug for the event. Unfortunately we’ve now reached capacity for the event and can’t take any more bookings, but we’ll post the conference proceedings on the website after the event finishes.

    Hi Andriy

    Does this mean you are coming over? Don’t forget the BIG OBIEE quiz that I am running

    @Mark Rittman
    I’m glad that you’re at full capacity. Let’s just say that maybe someone will be lucky to get on a waiting list.

    @Adrian Ward
    I wish I could have come, however, it’s tough for me to travel these days. I’m sure you will thoroughly enjoy it there. Can I answer the quiz offline (after conference). Best wishes.

    Hi, im having a problem with the AGO function i got the time dimension as time and the chronological keys defined, but it never returns the first value example:

    H1 AGO
    X1 1
    X2 2 1
    X3 3 2

    If i make a prompt to choose from X2 to X3:

    H1 AGO
    X2 2
    X3 3 2

    Anyone as any suggestion?

    Thks a Lot!
