Day I of the Rittman Mead BI Forum 2012 ended (besides a delicious meal) with a Keynote provided by Oracle (Alan Lee and Mike Durran). First Alan thanked us for being Oracle BI evangelistic. I guess a thanks back is well in place for a great product (portfolio).
Nothing spectacular to announce. I guess luckily for us, because it has been a busy year ;-).
A few notes:
Oracle BI will be Oracle (Business) Analytics
Next to the Oracle BI Foundation products like Endeca, Big Data (is this a product or a process), Engineered Systems (Big Data Appliance, Exadata, Exalytics) have been covered. Especially the last two products were subject to discussion. How do Exadata and Exalytics work together? We were presented with a Exalytics demo. Do you need to now where the data is coming from (TimesTen Oracle BI Cache) or is the fact that the data is retrieved very fast enough? This discussion will continue when Mike Durran does his presentations. Personally I would like to now where the data is coming from an I wasn’t the only one…….
More to come
