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:

Comments:

I have studied your website and the advices you are giving with great interest. It is strange that so many web gurus focus on the same basic points and since 347.000 sites pop up on Google when you look for profitable websites it must be very difficult for potential clients to make a decision; who is the best for my company? However it is easier to understand the next steps to be taken once the website is in place and properly running in the search engines. With all the technical tools including programs and software it seems an easy game, but for sure it is not. One important question is to make both existing customers as well as potential prospects aware of the importance to use the best marketing tool available today; Online Marketing that will ensure a high ROI. The best way to get started is to pull your network and talk to the closets businesses that all come at a low cost. Display on the Internet alone will not do the trick.

Thanks Anders While I can understand where you are coming from, the aim of this blog was never to market the Oracle products (Oracle has a number of different avenues for that already). More I wanted to provide input back into the community, that I have used and abused over the years, and hopefully make someone's life/job out their a little easier. Regards Darryn

Refreshing web site and intriguing contribution. I've marked it to revisit later. Imagination is more important than knowledge-Einstein
