ODTUG KScope’15 is running in Hollywood, Florida next week and Rittman Mead are running a number of sessions during the week on OBIEE, Essbase, ODI and Big Data. I’ve personally been attending ODTUG KScope (or “Kaleidoscope”, as it used to be known) for many years now and it’s the best developer-centric conference we go to, coupled with amazing venues and a great community atmosphere.
Sessions we’re running over the week include:
In yesterday’s post on using Oracle Big Data Discovery with Oracle Visual Analyzer in Oracle BI Cloud Service, I said mid-way through the article that I had to copy the Hadoop data into BI Cloud Service so that Visual Analyzer could use it; at present Oracle Visual Analyzer is only available as part of Oracle BI Cloud Service (BICS) so at some point the data prepared by Big Data Discovery had to be moved (more...)

All-too often developers create BI systems that meet all an organisation’s technical goals, but then fail to get adopted by users for reasons we can’t understand; all we know is that our brilliantly-architected system just doesn’t seem to (more...)

It’s an interesting question so I thought it’d be useful (more...)
Oracle released an update to Oracle BI Cloud Service a few weeks ago that included the new Oracle Visual Analyzer within the product, along with some other improvements including support for full Oracle Database-as-a-Service as the database backend, the ability to upload RPDs and run them in the cloud, and support for a new utility called DataSync.
