Rittman Mead is excited to announce ChitChat, an innovative new communication tool for OBIEE.
Rittman Mead’s clients already receive the best Oracle Business Analytics and Data Integration consulting and training. Now, in a major expansion of our business capabilities, our clients can enjoy the benefits of our engineering team’s innovation and expertise.
As part of Rittman Mead’s continuing support and participation in the Oracle community, we are proudly sponsoring this year’s Georgia Oracle Users Group’s Tech Day on Thursday, March 3, 2016, in Downtown Atlanta at the Executive Conference Center.
One of the first steps to improve OBIEE performance is to determine why it is slow. That may sound obvious—can’t fix it if you don’t know what you’re fixing, right? Unfortunately, the “Drunk Man anti-method”, in which we merrily stumble from one change to another, maybe breaking things along the way and certainly having a headache at the end of it, is far too prevalent.
During the last few posts, we have delved into a few of the many interesting aspects of a BI Apps installation. Today I wanted to change gears a bit and talk about what starts to happen when you are past installation and configuration and begin running load plans. On a client project, I recently worked through a unique constraint error on W_EMPLOYEE_D that I found really interesting related to how the incremental logic was working in the knowledge module (KM). Before I can really get into the workaround, we need to understand how incremental loads work in general for BI Apps.
It’s Sunday night, and we have just enough time for another quick Data Integration Tip from Rittman Mead. In another recent, yet somewhat trivial, challenge I ran into this week was the ability to pass quotations through to a Scenario as a part of an ODI 11g Variable (this is also applicable to ODI 12c). Let’s get right into the example.
Rittman Mead is thrilled to announce our new Introduction to Oracle R courses!
With the launch of 12c comes an exciting extension to OBIEE’s analytical capabilities—embedded R execution. Oracle has made several investments in the R language and its related technologies (Oracle R, ROracle, ORAAH, and Oracle R Enterprise). Based on our experience deploying advanced analytics solutions from within business intelligence departments, we view this simplified pairing of OBIEE and R as a great way forward in delivering advanced analytics across organizations.
Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted one of our Rittman Mead Data Integration Tips, so I thought a recent challenge might be the next great candidate. I was working through the Kimball ETL Subsystems and the Error Event Schema, Subsystem 5 if you’re familiar with the methodology, and attempting to build the schema from Oracle Data Integrator 12c (ODI 12c) metadata tables.
My Application Development Experience with Rittman Mead
Greetings, readers! My name is Nick Padgett, and this is my first blog post with Rittman Mead. I started with Rittman Mead as an intern over a year ago while I was attending Kennesaw State, a local university, but I’ve graduated from both school and the internship. Since then I’ve been working on several interesting applications. Today, I would like to take some time to discuss developing one such application, our OBIEE Commentary tool, as well as my learning experiences working at Rittman Mead.
