BI Cloud Service Partner Specialisation (BICS) Now Available

Partners can now complete the training and specialisation exams to be certified as OPN BI Cloud Service Specialist.  This means as a consultant, you can be recognised as a BI Cloud Service Specialist, contributing to your partner company's OBI Foundation Specialisation (of which BICS is now a component).

For those who are already OBI11g specialised, you need only have two of your team take the BI Cloud Service Specialist online exam to complete the set: while those who are not, will need to take the complete BICS-updated OBI11g specialisation.

See the prior posting for other information at Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service Available.

Business Intelligence Master-class for Partners

Wednesday 6th March 2013, Reading, UK

Business Intelligence projects are consistently top priority and are seen by many organisations as the key driver of transformational change.

Join our Business Intelligence Master-class for Partners on 6th March 2013, where you'll learn how Oracle's reference architecture can address key issues in a timely, pragmatic and reliable way.

Due to the great success of previous Master Classes on this subject, your presenters will follow a "free format" agenda using Whiteboards rather than formal presentations to allow as much interaction with you as possible.

Who should attend?

This session is aimed at Oracle partners who are IT Architects and BI & Data Warehouse specialists.
Please note: This workshop is highly interactive, and as such does not involve slide presentations or product feature details, it addresses Architectural issues and considerations for the Architect Community. Please come prepared to take your own notes.

To prepare for the workshop, it will be useful to read the paper on Information Management and Big Data Reference Architecture.

Oracle Endeca "Getting Started" Partner Guide

For partners looking for a concise step by step guide to getting started with Oracle Endeca Information Discovery, here it is to help you get started as quickly as possible.

  • Step 1: Join the Knowledge Zone as a company and an individual - this will give you a) the right to resell Oracle Endeca ID, and b) notice of any free / subsidised training events in your region
  • Step 2: For a quick general overview & positioning see the following article, in particular the Agile BI Video series which are useful in sharing with prospective clients. Also find a link to the official OEID Data Sheet.
  • Step 3: For a more detailed overview there is a live recorded OEID partner webcast with downloadable slides. In conjunction with this, your sales / presales team have free access to the official OEID Partner Playbook as well as the full Oracle price book.
  • Step 4: Download the OEID software and install. Please be aware you will need a 64-bit machine & a 64-bit Operating System. A useful solution for partners that have a 32-bit Operating System is to use Oracle's free VirtualBox software to quickly and easily create a Linux image and install on that.
  • Step 5: Get started building a first application using the YouTube channel as well as resources on is Endeca123.com
  • Attend a free / subsidised training event in your region (keep an eye on the blog for updates + join Knowledge Zone as an Individual (opt in) to be informed of these. 

Things are moving fast, so please be aware that the team are working hard to produce more and more material such as downloadable data sets (structured / unstructured), a downloadable image, access to demos, and over the next few weeks we will update this article as soon as new material becomes available!

BI 3.0 - The Consumerization of Business Intelligence

Attached is a useful and well written article for our partners to consider using with customers & prospects to provide some positioning and guidance around why Oracle Endeca Information Discovery is such a powerful complement to their existing BI strategy.

It provides an agnostic overview of this emerging trend in the BI market towards what has recently been called "BI 3.0", as well as explaining what is behind the various labels such as Data Discovery, Advanced Visualization, Visual Analytics, Business Discovery, Self Serve Business Intelligence, and Agile BI.

http://blog.strat-wise.com/2011/08/04/what-is-bi-30.aspx

Some highlights:

  • Business users are demanding intuitive BI interfaces, in line with the internet experience they are accustomed to, like Google searches or iPhone apps
  • The current low BI utilization rate of about 5% does not provide many companies an acceptable return on their Business Intelligence investment
  • 50% of self serve BI purchasing decisions take place in the business areas and not in IT
  • In-memory techniques allow digestion of huge amounts of information in seconds, what analysts are calling “analysis at the speed of thought” i.e. answers to business questions can be found without interrupting the train of thought
  • Visual Analytics packages are not replacing traditional BI in large organizations but complementing them. They provide fast analytical capabilities to more people that need to gain a competitive edge in the current fast changing market dynamics
  • The new BI generation of tools is taking analytics to a whole new level, hence the triple digit growth rate experienced by many of these tools
