I hope everyone’s month is going well in the BI world. I’m having a real difficult time fighting word press blog spam. I’m currently using Akismet but please let me know if you find a better way to manage it. It’s so bad that I’m about to disable commenting system.
I’m going to start a whole section dedicated to version 11G. I’m thinking of covering version 188.8.131.52
I think topics such as Installation, Configuration, Deployment, New Modelling techniques, as well as Security. From what I see, it’s a very application (I suspect the whole codebase has been re-written). I’m going to try to follow a systematic approach and to make a good care of categorization.
Please let me know if you’d like me to cover any special area.
Sometimes thoughts materialize – in this case, I was thinking – wouldn’t it be great if Oracle provided a configured instance of OBIEE 11G – with everything pre-configured so that it’d be easy to get evaluate it quickly without going through the pains of learning new application server (Weblogic) and installation steps.
It seems as I was heard. I’m grateful to several people making me aware of the new app:
If you want to learn and play with sample OBIEE 11g, you should download it from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/bi-foundation/obiee-samples-167534.html
Installation is breeze. I’ve managed to installed everything in under 1 hour (downloading 25gb takes a few hours)
Again, I think it’s very thoughtful and smart move on Oracle’s part to provide this tool.
