Life goes on in the OBIEE community. Just as those Chicago Kscope16 memories start to fade, the excitement begins for OpenWorld 16, then on to Tech16 (+Apps16).
The good news is that I finally got a proposal accepted, and I will be there – No not in sunny San Fran, but Beautiful Birmingham, England, Europe.

Brendan Tierney writes, “Did you read the title of this blog post! Read it again. Yes, Yes, I know what you are saying, “SQL cannot produce graphics or charts and particularly not ggplot2 graphics”.You are correct to a certain extent. SQL is rubbish a creating graphics (and I’m being polite).But with Oracle R Enterprise you can now produce graphics on your data using the embedded R execution feature of Oracle R Enterprise using SQL. In this blog post I will show you how.”
Sarah Craynon Zumbrum says, “Once you have signed up for Oracle’s Business Intelligence Cloud Service (BICS) either via a trial or by purchasing a BICS subscription, the first thing that will happen is that you will get a couple of emails. The first one will tell you your cloud account details.”
She then details the rest of the process in this blog.
Connor McDonald says “See you in San Francisco!” and lists the panels where you can chat to them, ask questions, debate topics and basically have a relaxed 45mins during all the frenzied activity that is OpenWorld!
Andrejus writes, “I have described how to apply ADF Security for ADF BC REST in my previous post – Oracle JET and ADF BC REST Basic Authentication. I will show how you can authenticate on first request and for the next requests rely on JSESSIONID cookie from the first request. This is useful for mobile clients and JET, there is no need to keep user credentials during requests (enough to keep cookie), as this is sensitive data.”
Sherry Milad writes, “In this blog I have used the sample app v511 to demonstrate how straight forward it is to create a blank Web Catalog.”
