TRN202 Oracle BI EE 11g “Bootcamp”

Overview : Completely rewritten and updated for OBIEE 11g, this course is designed for customers who wish to quickly train up a team of developers so that they can deliver an end-to-end Oracle BI EE system. Over five intensive days, it covers all that you will need to know to deliver an initial Oracle BI EE 11g system, and assumes no prior knowledge up-front. Course materials are in English, but we can deliver the course in other languages including Italian, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Greek using our own native-speaking trainers.

From installation through to deploying reports and dashboards, this course starts by covering architecture and deployment, creating repositories and catalogs, and sourcing data from relational and file sources. It then takes delegates through building analyses and dashboards, and using the new Scorecard & Strategy Management feature to create key performance indicators and scorecards. New features such as the Action Framework are covered in detail, together with areas such as security, deployment between environments, and performing systems managements tasks using Enterprise Manager and the WLST scripting environment.

This course has been updated for OBIEE 11.1.1.7, but is just as relevant if your organisation is on an earlier release of 11g.
