Oracle Business Intelligence Applications: Deliver Value through Rapid Implementations by Will Hutchinson
By Takin Babaei on Dec 10, 2013
During the last half of 2012 and the first half of 2013, Simon Miller and I wrote a book on release 7.9.6.x of Oracle BI Applications. In this book we cover how to justify the purchase of BI Applications, what a typical project looks like, the architecture of the product, and overviews of the subject areas. We did not cover 11.1.1.x because it was not shipping when we wrote the book. We do not cover the material covered in the documentation. After all, why would you pay money to read what you can get for free?
Last month, Simon and I participated in a webinar sponsored by KPI Partners. The people at KPI Partners were pleased with the attendance, with over 120 people attending. The webinar talked discussed
- Why people should care about the book
- The Oracle BI Applications architecture
- Setting user expectations
- Building your team
- Using a trusted advisor
- The audience we wrote it for
- What you will learn
I urge you to go to KPI Partners website and listen to the webinar. It will help you understand what our book is about and whether it is appropriate for you. Here’s a link.
