Top 5 OTN Business Intelligence Articles for 2014

It should be noted that the article in the #1 position totally dominated this list. To be specific, the article by Oracle ACE Directors Mark Rittman and Kevin McGinley captured just under 50% of ALL of the unique visits to any OTN technical articles on Business Intelligence during 2014. In fact, the drop off in visits between Oracle ACE Christian Screen's article in the #5 position and the article that would have been in the #6 position was so precipitous that it seemed disingenuous to include anything that did not make the top 5. Way to go, people!

Podcast Show Notes: ODI and the Evolution of Data Integration

The guest producer for the the latest OTN ArchBeat podcast is Oracle ACE Director Gurcan Orhan, a business intelligence specialist and the 2011 recipient of the Oracle Excellence Award for Technologist of the Year in the Enterprise Architect category. Gurcan regularly works with Oracle Data Integrator, so naturally he wanted his podcast to focus on a discussion of that product. For the panel, he gathered an impressive group of other BI specialists.

The timing for this conversation coincided with Oracle OpenWorld 2014, so on Monday September 29, 2014 the five panelists and I crowded into my hotel room just a few blocks from the big event. As you'll hear, the conversation is wide-ranging and candid -- just what you would expect from this collection of outspoken experts. Listen!
