OBIEE on the Apple iPhone

Chris Claterbos from Vlamis has picked up on the story that one of the first official iPhone apps is a front-end for Oracle BI Enterprise Edition. The App Store hasn't gone live over here yet, but apparently one of the first applications you can download (and for free) is a viewer application for Oracle BI Answers.

According to Chris, "The new applications leverage the SOA capabilities and Oracle Business Intelligence Web Services available in Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Pluss (OBIEE). The new apps will be available today for FREE from the Apple appstore. These applications will run on iPhone (original), iPhone 3G (available tomorrow) and iTouch using the new version 2.0 software."

Sounds interesting, I wrote about the web services integration over at OTN if you're interested in finding out a bit more around how this is done. I'll have to download the new firmware tonight and see if I can get it up and running. Thanks Chris.
