1. Prepare Your OBIEE Emergency Plan

This post by Corporate Technologies says “having a good risk management plan in place is something many BI managers miss or delay, thinking an emergency is not likely to happen.” They advise to:

  • Compile a master list of your OBIEE-related passwords and keep them in a safe and reliable place
  • Back up your web catalog content on a regular basis
  • If an outage happens, be methodical
  • Try to clarify with your OBIEE administrator whether the outage is affecting other applications to see what kind of escalation needs to be done from a management prospective
Finally, keep these tips handy!!


2. Table in the physical query, but not in join criteria

Arun Kumar goes through the set up, issue and resolution. He says, “Very simple mistake, but very annoying to get it fixed, especially if you have several physical tables to troubleshoot.”

3. Geospatial Analytics in OBIEE – Part III – Role of Mapviewer

In part 3, Ajay Sreedharan says, “In my previous post on Geospatial Analytics in OBIEE, I had talked about shapefiles, and how shapefiles could be imported using Map Builder. As mentioned earlier, the shapefiles contain the positional/geographic information. Once we have loaded this geographic information in to the spatial database, we need a map/spatial engine to process this information for use in tools like Oracle BI. This is what Oracle Mapviewer is for.”

In his next blog, he will talk about how we could put to use all these (layers, background maps, etc.) in OBIEE and create map based visualizations.
