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.
