3. OBIEE – Formatting Calculated Items in a Pivot Table

Daniel Willis says, “I have been spending a lot of time with OBIEE and Essbase lately and so my first blog in much too long is about my latest hurdle. It seems that OBIEE is full of hurdles and sneaky workarounds (and also some amazing customisation/extension opportunities using third party visualisations). Using Essbase and OBIEE together probably exponentially increases the amount of hurdles but I am still enjoying the product.”

Boris Dahav says, “If you search the net, you might find lots of posts about setting OBIEE to work with Microsoft Analysis Services as data source (here, here, here… The first one, by Suman Busireddy from KPI Partners is the most recent and very nice) . Unfortunately most of them seem to be based on small cases or personal trials of the writer. When you actually work with it, there are few additional things to be aware of. This is the main focus of this post.”

He says that next time, he will talk about specific use cases of Evaluate, to improve performance.
