I am a relative Conference Newbie, and I have never been to Miami. So to say I’m excited about going to Kscope15 is an understatement!
I’m not speaking, so can just relax, learn something about OBIEE 12c and enjoy the after parties.
We also have a meet the authors event on Monday night, so come and chat to us (Christian, Haroun and Myself) at the ArtofBi stand.
I will try to focus next weeks blog on what I found at the event – OBIEE stuff, everything else stays on tour!
See you there.
Blogs of the day
John Goodwin says, “It wasn’t so long ago I wrote a post about integrating EPM 220.127.116.11 workspace with OBIEE 18.104.22.168, now with the recent release of OBIEE 22.214.171.124 I have to keep up the tradition and test out if the integration is still working, if I don’t then I will just get asked the question so I thought I would get there before it gets asked.”
Debra Lilley writes, “OTNEMEA was a brilliant tour, despite the number of miles, it was actually quite relaxed, it only covered two timezones, so nobody had a jet lag issue.”
She finishes by saying, “These events are not big stage, multiple stream conferences, they are little steps on the way to even more success, more members of the Oracle Community.”
Dimitri says, “When you migrate to APEX 5.0 and the Universal Theme you might see that some plugins are not behaving correctly anymore. In this post I’ll discuss the Enkitec Modal LOV plugin.”
Nandoo writes, “Oracle has released a new version of OBIEE ( 126.96.36.199.0) and this has brought some cool new features.”
He lists just some of the new features in his blog.
Chris Carslen-Jones writes, “Previously, I described where you can find information about ETL runs in the DAC repository.”
He gives an example of how you might combine data from the DAC and Informatica tables.
Pete says, “GoldenGate is a fantastic product and like many other Oracle acquired products has an enviable array of non-Oracle connectivity. In fact, it is my change data propagation tool of choice.”
Ian Abramson refers to his presentation ‘Analytics in the Age of Big Data‘
He concludes his blog by saying, “The evolution of reporting is underway and we need to look at how we can provide our business analysts, business users and consumers with the information they need when they need to empower them to make better and more accurate decisions.”
Andrejus begins by saying, “There is a new scroll policy for the table component in ADF 12c. This new policy is called – load more. I think it gives good potential, it allows to reduce access load on heavy tables.”
Jonathan Lewis writes, “From time to time someone publishes a query on the OTN database forum and asks how to make it go faster, and you look at it and think it’s a nice example to explain a couple of principles because it’s short, easy to understand, obvious what sort of things might be wrong, and easy to fix. Then, after you’ve made a couple of suggestions and explained a couple of ideas the provider simply fades into the distance and doesn’t tell you any more about the query, or whether they’ve taken advantage of your advice, or found some other way to address the problem.”
He then gives an example and some updates.
