Bringing Clarity To The Avalanche - Part II, Sneak Peek

You had to be hiding under a rock (with no cell or internet service) to miss out on the fact that Oracle was trumpeting cloud messages throughout OpenWorld.  Far too much news for one person to track. So I'd like to approach discussing this in a very different way.

OBIA 11g - No more Informatica

I was interested to hear at Oracle Open World last week that Oracle have finished their development of the BI Apps using Informatica as the ETL tool. The last version of OBIA using Informatica is
