Atlanta BI Users Group Meeting

Rittman Mead is proud to announce our sponsorship of the February meeting of the Atlanta BI Users Group, a regional special interest group with involvement from IOUG, ODTUG the IOUG BIWA SIG, and the Georgia Oracle Users Group (GOUSER). I'd like to thank Greg Lancaster and the entire BI team at Cox Communications for hosting the event, which will take place at Cox Enterprises, Daytona B Conference Room, 6205 Peachtree Dunwoody Road, Atlanta, GA from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM on February 24th. I'll be giving a presentation similar to the one Mark Rittman and I gave at the RMOUG Training Days event described by Mark here.

With involvement from diverse groups, I wanted to make sure the presentation would be interesting from a lot of perspectives, so involving core database functionality like OWB seemed important. And this particular presentation is directed at DBAs and developers, so the non-BI representation from GOUSER might be interested in what's going on.

If you're new to OWB, don't be alarmed by the focus on the newest release: 11gR2. I'll explain in general what OWB is and how it's positioned, moving into some of the new features that make this release the best OWB yet. Also speaking at the event will be Mitch Campbell, Director of Business Intelligence with Oracle, who will be talking about Oracle's BI product roadmap. Following both talks, I'll be sitting for a BI panel discussion with Mitch and Greg, to give responses to attendees questions, hopefully representing the perspectives of Oracle, their partners, and their customers.

The event is free, with snacks and refreshments provided, so hopefully we'll see you there.
