I’ve arrived in Birmingham UK for UKOUG 2010. I’m told its unusually cold for this time of year but you hear that a lot when people find out you’re based in Florida. Cold or no cold I’m very excited to be here, this is my first set of presentations at a conference outside of the US.
I’ll be giving two presentations, both tomorrow on Tuesday November 30th.
Session 160, Starting an Agile Oracle BI Project on a Budget
09:40 – 10:45 in Hall 10b (All Levels)
This is truly targeted at those not yet starting or only just starting a BI project. Early on there are some high-level decisions that have a large affect on the trajectory and success of your project. We will discuss modeling approach, tool selection and free or lower cost Oracle products that can get your project off the starting block.
Session 164, OBIEE: Implementing Enterprise SCM (Software Change Management)
14:40 – 15:40 in Hall 7a (Experienced)
On a more advanced topic, if you’ve implemented with OBIEE you’ve probably already noticed the challenges of fitting OBIEE metadata into a version control system. Particularly if you are aiming for hands off SOX compliance. While this situation has certainly improved with OBIEE 11g, many clients will continue with OBIEE 10g for some time on their custom and Oracle BI Apps systems. This presentation is based on an actual client implementation at a Fortune 15 company.
