Ships in the Night

A question that normally pops up in every RFx we have to respond to is what is the release history of our product. I have typically found this information hard to come by, but have been able to compile the following list (with a lot of input from Esmond Chia):

These products have a long heritage with Oracle BIEE being based on Siebel Business Analytics which was originally created by nQuire in 1997 and Hyperion Essbase was originally created by Arbor prior to being acquired by Hyperion in 1998. The following major releases of the software have occurred:

A small diGRESSION

A question that has popped up occasionally is if we support the ability to plot a Trend Line on a chart (ala MS Excel). There is an example of this in the sample content that we now ship with OBIEE (BTW, the latest sample content can be downloaded here): Trend.png This example uses a linear regression curve. Note that this is not an OOTB (out of the box) function in OBIEE, but the calculation can be built (either directly in the Answers request, or in the RPD Metadata so that a user can then just drag the field onto a report). The example in the sample content above actually has the calculation in the Answers request formula (which makes it look a lot more complicated than it actually is).[Read More]
