And we’re Off

The OBIEE community really took off this week, Conference Updates, Product News, some great Blogs and the jobs market all back in swing. Can the OBIEE world keep this pace up?

Blogs of the week

1. Hadoop and Oracle Technologies on BI Projects

Daan Bakboord links to the slideshare to the presentation ‘Hadoop and Oracle Technologies on BI Projects’.

2. BIWA Summit 2015: The Best Dedicated Oracle BI Conference All Year

Red Pill Analytics share their thoughts on the BIWA Summit 2015


Robert Gideon posts, “The OBIEE comments on the My Oracle Support Document 1488475.1 state that this will likely be the last bundle patch for the version.”

He later edited his blog to add, “After multiple people found the note in Oracle KB Article 1488475.1, the note was removed from the document.  Oracle reserves the right to patch if necessary; however, I have a feeling development is going to be more focused on the 12c version of OBIEE.”

4. How to Set Axis Max Value of AnyChart in APEX Dynamically

Gokhan Atil says, “I just created a one-page APEX application to show performance chart of our main production server based on Active Session History data. We publish it on a big monitor so we can see the performance chart during the day. It’s not a big deal but it’s really useful.”

5. Kickoff to Kscope15

Cameron Lackpour shows us where Kscope15 is due to take place and asks for our Smartphone recommendations!

6. Big Data and Aggregation

Peter Scott says, “Last time I blogged about the need to aggregate I, teasingly, promised to write about Big Data and aggregation.”

7. Evaluating Classification Results

Brendan Tierney blogs, “When you are working on building classification models you will need some ways of measuring the effectiveness of each model that you will build. This measurement/evaluation is perform during the model build process.”

He says, “In my next 2 blog posts I will show you how you can perform these tests on the results generated by the Oracle Data Miner tool and then on the Oracle Data Miner models produced using PL/SQL.”

8. Oracle SQL Developer Meets SQL*Plus?

Jeff says, “If you’re not into reading so much, we have 7 or 8 blogs on the subject out there, you can just watch the movie.”
