Installing OBIEE 11g Client tool on Windows 8

OBIEE 11g client tool is not certified with Windows 8. The certification matrix for OBIEE version is in the following location and it does not include Windows 8. 

Lifting the Lid on OBIEE Internals with Linux Diagnostics Tools

There comes the point in any sufficiently complex or difficult problem diagnosis that the log files in OBIEE alone are not sufficient for building up a complete picture of what’s going on. Even with the debug/trace data that Presentation Services and other components can be configured precisely to write you’re sometimes just left having to guess what is going on inside the black box of each of the OBIEE system components.

5 Minute JavaScript #11: Prototypes

Last week, we discussed the JSON format. Today we are going to take a deeper look in the object structure in JavaScript. In most object-oriented programming languages you have some kind of classical inheritance. This means that the language allows you to define a sort of blueprint of an object named a class. JavaScript doesn’t work with these concepts. Instead, it works with prototypes.

New Oracle Big Data Quick-Start Packages from Rittman Mead

Many organisations using Oracle’s business intelligence and data warehousing tools are now looking to extend their capabilities using “big data” technologies. Customers running their data warehouses on Oracle Databases are now looking to use Hadoop to extend their storage capacity whilst offloading initial data loading and ETL to this complementary platform; other customers are using Hadoop and Oracle’s Big Data Appliance to add new capabilities around unstructured and sensor data analysis, all at considerably lower-cost than traditional database storage.

Source Dependent Extract and Source Independent Load

Typical data warehousing ETL process involves Extract, Transform, and Load. The concept of Source Dependent Extract (SDE) and Source Independent Load (SIL) are unique part of the BI Apps ETL since BI Apps has a universal data warehouse. Since the staging schema are designed according to the universal data warehouse design, the logic of loading data […]

Access Denied when logging in to OSB 12c console

The Oracle SOA Suite 12c quick start is an excellent way to get started with all the new features of 12c. I imagine it must be frustrating when you log in to http://localhost:7101/servicebus and are confronted with an 401 – Access Denied error message. Rest assured, there is nothing wrong with your credential configuration. The cause is likely much more simple; you use the wrong Java version.

RM BI Forum 2015 : Justification Letters for Employers

(Thanks to Christian Berg @Nephentur for the suggestion, and acknowledgements to ODTUG KScope for the original idea – our favourite conference after the BI Forum)

OBIEE nqcmd Tidbits

nqcmd is the ODBC command line tool that always has, and hopefully always will, shipped with OBIEE. It enables you to manually fire queries directly at the BI Server, rather than through the usual way of Presentation Services generating Logical SQL and sending it to BI Server. This can be useful in several cases:

BI Apps has an Universal Data Warehouse

BI Apps data warehouse design is based on an assumption that the data warehouse schema design is independent from OLTP system. The staging schema is an universal staging and the data warehouse is an universal data warehouse. The assumption is that no matter what the source system you are using, the business questions the BI […]
