It has been a busy period over at Oracle with different Oracle Business Analytics software releases. For me personally the following releases attracted my attention:
As always, immediately after a new release of Oracle Business Analytics, there is a lot of buzz within the Oracle BA Community. What did impress me this time was that Oracle added some buzz as well in terms of various Youtube video’s. Next to that there is a lot of information online which should help you to get started. I will give an impression of some of the sources I have seen and used.
Oracle BI EE 184.108.40.206.0
There is lot of information online. There are two interesting links which are a little bit different than the others.
- Oracle Learning Library – Oracle BI 220.127.116.11.0 – New Features
- Oracle BI Tech Demos on Youtube
- Bugs Fixed in 18.104.22.168.0 (1546028.1)
- Required and Recommended Patches and Patch Sets for Oracle BI 11g (1488475.1)
Oracle BIA 22.214.171.124.1
A few weeks ago Oracle BIA 126.96.36.199.1 has gone GA.
This is a completely new version of Oracle BIA. There are a few interesting blog postings on this release. I provided links to the different blogs. There are probably more postings so have a look around.
Oracle Endeca 3.0
Feel free to add if you would like.
Completely off-topic, but nevertheless interesting to add is the following.
Another interesting book on Oracle BI 11g is the one from Mark Rittman; ‘Oracle Business Intelligence 11g Developers Guide’
Check the Siebel Essentials site for two reviews about the books above.
One other thing I am working on is translating BITeamwork to the Dutch language. BITeamwork is all about Oracle Business Intelligence Collaboration.
As of this weekend the presentations of the RittmanMead BI Forum 2013 (Brighton and Atlanta) are online.
That’s it for now.
Last week I have tried to give you an impression about the Rittman Mead BI Forum 2012. They managed to provide us with a four day program packed with all things related to Oracle BI. Two core days with various presentations. Various in subject; Oracle BI, agile, Fusion Apps, Endeca, etc., etc. But also various in style; Keynotes, one hour presentations and 10-minute (TED/Ignite) presentations. Next to that the possibility of a Masterclass by Kevin McGinley and a NDA session by Oracle.
I was one of the lucky few, who was able to join all four days. Four days, packed with information and a basis for a lot of inspiration. Where to start!?
The Rittman Mead BI Forum is a good place to network and to exchange ideas. It was good to see a lot of known faces again. On top of that I have met some ‘new’ people also.
A big thank you to Mark Rittman, Jon Mead and their crew. Also a big thanks to Oracle for joining and for being so open about the Oracle BI developments and their visions and roadmaps. Thanks all for joining and sharing. That’s what makes the Rittman Mead BI Forum such a great event to be at. Hope to see everyone next year.
For a foto-impresssion, check Flickr.
Tommorow the US version of the Rittman Mead BI Forum will start. If you would like to stay informed, you should check the Tweetchat.
Stay on the lookout for the pdf’s which will probably placed on the Rittman Mead website. There will definitely be some good stuff to have a look at!!

It has been a while since I last posted on ‘Oracle BI Bakboord’. A lot has happened since. Oracle OpenWorld 2011 eg. If you have a look at the number of Oracle BI subjects, you can see that Oracle BI is still ‘Hot’ at Oracle. This week I was able to visit the Oracle Business Analytics Summit in Nieuwegein, Holland. I had the opportunity to meet with clients, partners and Oracle employees. Oracle had managed to create an agenda with one common subject; ‘Information’ and what Oracle offers to manage and deliver this information to the end user.
A few different subjects where covered.
- Oracle BI in Oracle Fusion Applications
After you pressed the sign-in / register button you are presented with a (familiar) Oracle.com loginscreen.
You still have to agree with the Terms and Restrictions, but after that it’s the good old eDelivery again.
Now you are good to go…….
