In a few days time, the new 11g version of Oracle BI EE  will be launched commercially.  Still John Minkjan wants to spent some time playing around with the 10g version.

If you like a challenge and some competition please join!

I will be one of the judges, so I am looking forward to your contributions.

Oracle BI EE 11g – Launch (Update)

Tension rises. One week to go till the commercial launch of the 11g release of Oracle BI EE. There is no specific launch-event planned in Holland. Instead Oracle Netherlands has organized a local variant with a live video-stream with London.

In London there will be a specific breakout session for existing Oracle Partners, at 3.00 pm after the main event, to learn how to gain the inside track to getting the most out of this new OBI 11g release as fast as possible.

Partner breakout agenda:
3.00 Introduction – Jackie Down (UK A&C Dir)
– OBI 11g Specialization : Why and How
3.10 OBI 11g Partner Enablement – Mike Hallett (Emea BI A&C Dir) -Training plan to become delivery capable fast
– Software & Demo access
3.25 Panel Discussion Q&A
– Mark Rittman of Rittman Mead
– Roger Cressey of Qubix
– Mike Pell (Oracle UK BI Sales Dir)

Focus topics :

The Beta programme

Competing to WIN with OBI 11g

EPM Platform Integration

3.50 End of Session

The material from this breakout will be posted on the EMEA BI/EPM partner community Portal for you to access after the event.

For those of you who are not able to attend physically, there will be a  Oracle Business Intelligence 11g Launch Webcast

Hopefully afterwards we all could say it was worth all these years of waiting.

Definitely more to come.

Oracle BI EE 11g – Launch

There is a lot of rumour on Twitter (hashtags #OBIEE, #11g ) about the launch of the new 11g version of Oracle BI EE yesterday. There will be an official launch event  in London next month. As Mark Rittman already mentioned, this will probably be a marketing launch. The software on OTN will follow later.

Oracle is testing our patience. The expectations of this new product are very high.

I can’t wait!!
