ODI and EPM soup to nuts
By Dain C. Hansen on Oct 13, 2008
Recently we've been following this comprehensive soup-to-nuts blogroll from John Goodwin on the subject of Oracle Data Integrator and EPM, specifically Essbase. The blog has some compelling use cases especially in regards to integrating data into and out of Essbase. It provides a cookbook for what's required, how it works, and useful lessons learned along the way. In John's words, it is a "screen shot heaven." Enough said.
Enjoy the blogroll... I've listed out the blog series below. One comment from Damir that I chose to highlight: "I found your work on this blog extreamly useful as we are currently in the middle of the implementation of ODI. At this moment this place is my only window to the ODI setup and so far, following your guides, everything is running perfectly. Can't wait for the next chapter."
Meanwhile John, we await anxiously for the finale.
