Migrating Applications and Data to Oracle9i OLAP – Case Studies

Presented by Dan Vlamis

With the introduction of Oracle9i and BI Beans, the landscape for development of BI applications has changed. This leaves clients with existing Express-based applications asking “How do we move our applications and data?” and “Do we store our OLAP data in RDBMS tables or analytic workspaces?”. This presentation will address the issues involved in converting and migrating these types of applications over to the new technology. Case studies will be presented and used throughout the presentation.
Topics Include:
• Overview of the Oracle9i and BI Beans Architecture
• Data Migration Issues
• What Can and Cannot Be Migrated/Converted
• Conversion vs. New Development – Which is Best or Possible
• Development Process (steps)
• Tips and Techniques
• Design and Implementation Issues
