Top 10 OTN Business Intelligence Articles

It takes a special kind of person to spend the entire work day hunched over a computer keyboard only to spend scant free time pounding that same keyboard to crank out an OTN technical article. So in order to recognize that effort on behalf of the Business Intelligence experts out there, here's a Top 10 list of the most popular OTN BI articles for the last 12 months.

The list is based on unique page visits, and encompasses all articles still available in the /articles/bi directory on OTN, regardless of their original publication date.

While all of the authors listed here a deserve an elaborate fist-bump, I must point out that the article in the #1 slot, written by Oracle ACE Directors Mark Rittman and Kevin McGinley, scored more than 50% of all of unique visits to any Business Intelligence article on OTN.

Also noteworthy is the fact the aforementioned Messrs. Rittman and McGinley appear twice in this list, as do Yuli Vasiliev and Christian Screen. If you run into these guys at Oracle OpenWorld, buy 'em a drink.
