Preparing for BI 12c Upgrade

So you’ve heard about the major new features of Oracle BI 12c, including Visual Analyzer, Data Mashups, and BI Ask, but what’s it *really* like to upgrade to BI 12c? How do you ensure that the upgrade process goes smoothly? Sure, VA looks exciting, but what about the library of dashboards and analyses you’ve built up over the years?

Oracle Database Analytic Views

Analytic views (new in Oracle 12.2 and discussed at Oracle OpenWorld) will let you easily transform tables into the next-generation data source for BI applications and Excel Pivot Tables. Analytic views add analytic content to data using a dimension model and a library of hierarchical, time series, and other calculations.

Scaling R to New Heights with Oracle Database

Oracle R Enterprise (ORE), a component of the Oracle Advanced Analytics Option, provides a comprehensive, database-centric environment for end-to-end analytical processes in R, with immediate deployment to production environments. Entire R scripts can be operationalized in production applications – eliminating the need to port R code.

Case Study of Improving BI Apps and OBIEE Performance

A customer implemented BI Applications and query performance was not as good as they expected and was getting worse over time. Vlamis Software Solutions, Inc. was engaged for an OBIEE “health check” to help evaluate how they could improve their query performance.

Visual Analyzer and Best Practices for Data Discovery

Oracle’s new Visual Analyzer tool is especially designed for data exploration, whereas traditional OBIEE dashboards tend to be designed for data explanation. How do you provide best practices for how to explore data, since this tends to be more ad-hoc in nature?

Preparing for an Upgrade to Oracle Business Intelligence 12c

So you’ve heard about the major new features of Oracle BI 12c, including Visual Analyzer, Data Mashups, and BI Ask, but what’s it *really* like to upgrade to BI 12c? Upgrades are not only about tools and techniques, but also about improving and updating your implementation and correcting accumulated problems.

Oracle Big Data Science

Oracle offers data scientists and those with an Oracle background who are interested in learning data science the opportunity to perform highly sophisticated analytics on humongous data sets without requiring years of specialized study and arcane knowledge acquisition.

Analytic Views Simplify Complex Business Intelligence Queries

Analytic Views (new in Oracle 12.2 and discussed at Oracle OpenWorld 2015) change the way you build analytical applications. Analytic Views are created in a similar way to regular relational views, but add a syntax that allow you to add multiple levels of data and calculations that insulate your application from complex SQL necessary to calculate even simple concepts such as time series, share calculations and aggregations.
