    Hello Mark,
    I appreciate you and your colleagues efforts in sharing knowledge through this website as well as by offering real time focused training courses. I have following questions, would be great if you can address

    1. Considering the fact that many bi consultants/aspirants around the world, wont be able to travel or unable to pay high class room training costs, are you thinking offering RM training courses online by offering e-Learning courses?

    2. ODI 11 being used more these days on OBIA 11 projects, there seems to be a requirement to teach ODI 11 using design , development patterns/standards of OBIA 11. Is RM is planning to offer ODI 11 for OBIA 11 projects as separate course?

    3. ODI 11, in the context of OBIA 11 offer various tools, SDK etc, that can be used to automate the development process, instead of manually creating the objects using drag/drop method. is RM planning to promote fast development techniques that provide value of ODI projects?

    Hi Venkat, sorry for the delay in replying.

    1. Yes, we’ve considered this, and would like to do it some time. Issues for us are (a) do we run it live – and if so, in what timezone? Realistically we’d need to run it on Europe, US and India timezones, which then triples our workload and costs, so we’d need to guarantee a certain number of attendees to make it work. Or (b) we could record the sessions and then have them play on-demnad – but then we’d need to a platform to deliver them, collect fees etc, so again it’s a fair bit of work, hence not doing it immediately. But its definitely something we’d like to do, if the numbers worked-out.

    2. Yes – we’re developing a BI Apps on ODI course shortly, and we’ll also develop a couple of modules for our ODI12c course to cover BI Apps on ODI, once it supports ODI12c.

    3. Good idea – I’ll raise it with our ODI / BI Apps teams.
