    One thing that is for certain is that the cloud is here to stay. With more and more offerings having a cloud component, managing data and applications that are not on-premises will become commonplace. Some applications are optimized for this brave new world we’re living in (Oracle BICS comes to mind), but the old guard still remains, and we will need to be ready for integrating these new technologies into the old

    This is a topic that I was teaching about last night in my Digital Analytics class at University of Utah and instead of only sharing what I found with my students, I thought I’d share here in the blogosphere.

    If you’re reading this post, you’ve probably seen my other post on connecting OBIEE to Amazon Web Services’ Redshift database offering. If not, thanks for joining in for this part of the adventure. To summarize the last post, cloud applications are becoming increasingly more common, and because of this fact, more of the data that is produced and consumed will be in the cloud.

    The other day I was playing around with the Direct Database Request (DDR) feature within OBIEE. The reason I did this is I wanted to create a report that utilized columns from the database that were not exposed in OBIEE, yet still utilize the functionality of OBIEE.

    OBIEE 11.1.1.9.0 is a big step up from the earlier versions, and there are plenty of great things to appreciate about it. However, one thing that I am not that excited about is an error that crops up from time to time in Enterprise Manager.

    At work last week I lifted the covers on the Red Pill Analytics Slowly Changing Dimension ODI IKM for Oracle. If you haven’t heard about this knowledge module, it was specifically written to take a dimension source table and transform it to a slowly changing dimension target table.

    In the depths of time before ODI 12c, ODI Studio had a fairly simple canvas to design our interfaces. We dropped on our datastores (tables) and then dragged columns between tables to create joins, and columns to the canvas to make filters.

    The Big difference between Oracle BI Applications 7.9.X and 11g is the Integration or ETL tier. 11g no longer uses DAC or Informatica. Instead Oracle Data Integrator replaces those components. This cross-reference I created here is for those thinking of or moving to 11g from 7.9.X.

    A look at OBIA’s shift to use SCD1_WID in place of ROW_WID for Slowly Changing Dimensions. A little primer on Slowly Changing Dimensions (SCD). Slowly Changing Dimensions are a star schema design principle and design pattern used to reflect how source data field changes are handled in dimension tables.

    More and more organizations are realizing the value Big Data technologies contribute to the return on investment in Analytics. But as an increasing variety of data types reside in different data stores, organizations are finding that a unified Analytics layer can help bridge the divide in modern data architectures. This session will examine how you can enable Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) to play a role in a unified Analytics layer and the benefits and use cases for doing so.
