New Year, New OBIEE Blog

You may have noticed that I am now blogging from a new domain,, also known as and sometimes referred to as !  Addidici is now just for the company stuff.  Please update your links (You have links to my blog right? eh?)

Also blogging at a new site is Pete Scott the first featured blogger this week.  Good luck Pete.

I am looking forward to this year, my First Kscope (in Hollywood, Miami) and potential updates to the product.  We will have to make time to restart our London OBIEE gatherings (which I certainly enjoyed!), and I am also hoping to get back to work on the project (fingers crossed).
