Business Intelligence

In today’s economy, end users need information faster and in a format customized to their level of experience. Business Intelligence System Administrators need streamlined systems to support the growing volume of data as well as the complex requirements of end users. This track has sessions dedicated to best-in-class Business Intelligence solutions using Oracle’s Business Intelligence suite of 15+ products including OBIEE+ and the Oracle BI Applications suite. See how other customers are addressing the insatiable demand for real time intelligence to improve overall business performance and learn how you can achieve the same results. Attendees include all stakeholders in the reporting and analysis process: end users, management, system administrators, ETL architects, developers and data modelers.

BI Analytics

According to Google, every 48 hours the world creates about five exabytes of stored information. That’s as much information as was recorded from the Dawn of Civilization until 2003. Sped on by social networking, the amount of stored information is now doubling every 18 months. The business analytics track is focused on how business users can sort through information overload, and learn from the volumes of collected data. See how customers use Oracle EPM applications such as Essbase, Crystal Ball, and Oracle BI Applications to make sense of the past, and to see the future. Attendees include all stakeholders in the reporting and analysis process: end users, management, system administrators, long range strategic planners, developers and data modelers.

Oracle Endeca Information Discovery, just released last quarter, is a great example of what this exciting new track will present, brand new innovative products in the BI or EPM space. This track will provide information and overviews on products and trends that all customers need to stay knowledgeable and up-to-date on. Are your executives becoming mobile and want all of the new technology? Are you leveraging the Geospatial Analytics in OBIEE 11g?
