New Exalytics OBI11g Test Drive Marketing Event Kit for Partners

“Seeing is believing”. Just as you would always test-drive the car you want to buy, then so too, our prospects for Oracle Analytics can get to appreciate the ease of use and productivity of Oracle BI by experiencing the tools hands-on, all hosted on an Oracle Exalytics.

This hosted Test Drive system is available at no cost to OPN specialist partners to run their own marketing events to excite their clients about the great usability and advanced visualisations from in-memory OBI11g on Exalytics.

We are keen to help you to build your pipeline, to find new sales opportunities by running your own lead generation and marketing campaigns - for some ideas and how to apply for joint funding from Oracle - look here - and below are two Event Kits with presentation material and hosted demonstration environments to accelerate your business development.

Upgrade Your Skills and Customers from OBI v10 to OBI11g

To keep your partner services competitive, you need to prove to our customers that you have the skills and capability to work with the latest version of Oracle OBI11g. Many partners have already upgraded their OPN Certificates from OBI v10 to the new OBI11g Specialisation. If you have not yet done so, then now is the perfect time to get this done over the next few months in preparation for increased demand from clients for partner services to upgrade them from their old v10 systems.

Because standard Oracle support for v10 expires in July 2013, all customers will have even more incentive to upgrade to OBI11g: make sure you are ready to service this demand. For more information see -

There is also a step-by-step hands-on tutorial on the procedures for using Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade Assistant to upgrade an existing Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) Enterprise Edition 10g Release 3 (10.1.3.2 or later) environment to Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g in a Windows environment on a single machine. Access this here @ Upgrading Oracle Business Intelligence from 10g to 11g.

Remember ! ... Oracle does not charge any licence fee to upgrade from OBI 10 to OBI 11g. The OBI 11g version has many improvements over the OBI 10 version, which the customer gets for no additional cost (as long as they have a current Oracle Support agreement). There are additional new modules (such as the Mobile BI add-on), which a customer may choose to licence after they have done the upgrade: this is entirely optional.
