It’s Tuesday, and there was a big tragedy in DC that everyone knows about. I ride on Red Line every day  – and now I’m starting to think that I’m not riding in front car anymore. However,  it’s quite possible that I’d have been riding the same train.

Official info about BI nomination is here –

Probably the most interesting category for blog’s readers is this:

Using Oracle BI EE Plus to deliver intelligence and analytics from data spanning multiple sources and applications.

The criteria’s don’t seem too difficult – I suggest you at least forward the link to your manager – supervisor.The only thing that is not clear is whether the award is for 1 person, 10 people total, or 10 teams. Please let me know if you can figure it out.

Summer was slow for many business intelligence blogers – Adrian Ward posted something a humorous albeit interesting story –   “Don’t Try This At Home Kids” . John Minkjan came up with some cool scripts, such as Getting All Users and Roles from RPD

Other interesting findings – I found a post about all OBIEE and legacy products versions – by Darryn Hinett.

Something I just learned by an accident –  Venkatakrishnan J (one of the most respected Oracle BI experts and an author of authoritative OBIEE blog  joined Rittman Mead consulting. Congratulations and Best wishes for all parties involved. You can read about it here –

Please stay safe
