What Does Brexit Mean for the UK OBIEE Market

May you always live in Interesting Times

Not sure who said that but I am sure he didnt meant this interesting!

Markets plunging, Jobs at risk, political turmoil.

First, if you are analysing the market reactions, then please use OBIEE

If you want to improve the analyse of Polls, then get OBIEE!

Everyone else – Calm Down, Calm Down

Democracy has won, but life will still go on.  Exports will now go up.

Imports may struggle if in dollars – So, if you are buying Oracle product, lets hope they keep the prices at their current levels, or preferably drop them.

In the meantime, travelling to Oracle Open World just got a lot more expensive.  Maybe they could have it here this year instead, you can get loads of pounds to the dollar 🙂

For those at Kscope16, have a great time, and hopefully I’ll be there next year.

Brendan Tierney blogs, “This is the second blog post of my series on examining the clusters that are predicted for by an Oracle Data Mining model for your data. In my previous blog post I showed you how to use CLUSTER_ID and CLUSTER_PROBABILITY functions. These are the core of what you will be used when working with clusters and automating the process. In this blog post I will look at what details are used by the clustering model to make the prediction.”
