Well, I’m official now. The contracts have been signed and I’ve been allocated an ISBN number. It won’t be out for at least a year from now, but I’m now officially the author for the forthcoming Oracle Press book, “Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Developers Guide”.
It’s a bit too early to get in to too much detail about the content and book structure, but the aim of the book will be to take developers through the process of building a business intelligence system based on the Oracle database, Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Standard and Enterprise Edition, with database design and loading being done through Oracle Warehouse Builder and Sunopsis Data Conductor. In the best tradition, it’ll be full of examples and development techniques, it’ll touch on areas such as SOA and business process integration, and will be all-new material developed specially for the book.
Over the next twelve months I’ll be posting examples as I work them through for the book, plus a bit of insight into the process of writing a book and then getting it published. Coupled with this, and some other changes that I can’t go into now, it looks like 2007 is going to be a fairly busy year for me but hopefully by the end of the year it’ll all be worthwhile. For now though, it’s back to putting the examples together, then it’s on to the first of the Oracle Warehouse Builder chapters.
