We now have a webcast posted on our web site that covers an overview of the June 2009 image of BIC2g: BI & EPM. In that webcast, we cover background of the BIC2g program, an overview of what is in the image, and how Oracle partners can receive a copy of the image for their own use. The link to the webcast is on the left side our our BIC2g page at www.vlamis.com/bic2g . We will be working on making this more visible in the future, but I wanted to get this blog post out ASAP. In case you have a hard time locating the link under the “BIC2g Webcasts” heading, you can find a link directly to the webcast at this link. We will add a link next week to “part 2” of our August 11 webcast where we actually demonstrate the image live and go over changes from the March 09 image to the June 09 image.
For anybody interested in the technology in how we recorded the webcast, let me know and I’ll share details. I felt it was important to let people be able to jump to individual slides and rewind and fast-forward through the audio that accompanies each slide. Personally, I find having to sit through an entire 1-hr webcast painful if I just want to review a specific section. It takes more work for us to index the webcast, but I think the result is much more useful. Please let us know if you agree. We used Adobe’s Presenter software to transform the Powerpoint file and the audio to the flash-based playback experience that we hope you enjoy.
