Last Call - OU BI Masterclasses in London and Dublin, July 2011

If you're based in the UK or Ireland, and you missed the mailouts from Oracle University, I'm running my Enterprise Business Intelligence Masterclass in Dublin (July 4th-5th 2011) and London (July 7th-8th 2011). This seminar runs over two days and covers a wide spectrum of Oracle BI&DW tools, including OBIEE (of course), ODI and OWB, and a bit of Essbase. It's a great event if you're looking to get up to speed with the whole Oracle BI platform, how it all links together, and some insights into what works and what doesn't (yet).

As we've recently had releases of OBIEE and ODI, I've updated a lot of the content over the past few weeks to bring it bang-up-to-date. Some areas that have been added and updated since the agenda was first published include:

  • Updated and extended OBIEE/Essbase content, including actions for writeback and calc scripts, and a look into OBIEE's MDX generation
  • Additional content around and ODI mapping capabilities, including load plans, temporary interfaces and OBIEE lineage
  • A new section on accessing Oracle OLAP from OBIEE
  • New information on the Simple Install architecture for OBIEE, and the > upgrade process
  • BI Composer, and an updated Scorecard and KPI section based on new features
  • Direct access in BI Publisher to XLS data sources from the data modeller
  • An update in the Security section based on the two Oracle Security presentations at the BI Forum
  • Integrating Google Maps using Oracle Mapviewer

As is usually the case with Oracle University, they take a call on whether or not to run each event two weeks beforehand, so if you're thinking of attending make sure you book soon, as if you leave it too late it may well end up cancelled. Links for the two events are here:

Hopefully I'll see some of you there!
