OBIEE Weekly Roundup

This week I have updated the Blogger database, adding more members and putting links in place  to the ACE Directory and oracle community.

Also this week I heard from ODTUG that my submission to talk at next years conference in Miami was not successful, but I think I will go anyway.  I need to figure why they didn’t want to hear about advanced OBIEE techniques.  I am hoping its because my submission was not eye catching enough, and not that OBIEE is not a popular subject any more?  Let’s wait see what come out on the agenda at KSCOPE 16
