Test Drive the New BI Mobile Application Designer

Build your own new BI Mobile App, and try it on your smart-phone, or tablet, or desk-top, and the apps others have put into the test Apps-library. BIMAD is pretty simple to use to build apps that analyse data from an up-loadable spread-sheet, or directly from the existing (e.g. here the sample) centralised OBI presentation data model: and just to help you along, here is a step-by-step guide to how you can test drive a specific BIMAD example from the hosted server.

Oracle’s BI Mobile Application Designer (BIMAD) allows you to quickly create great looking interactive reports and dashboard-apps to view across multiple mobile and PC devices. There are three ways you as Partners and your customers can try these out:

  1. Connect to the Oracle-hosted OBI-server, and use it now, both to build and to run these

    BI Mobile Apps. Use your PC-browser to navigate to http://slc02okx.oracle.com:7780/analytics to build the app, and then either scan the QR code it generates into your mobile device to run it, or put the app into the library on the BI-Server, and access them all @ http://slc02okx.oracle.com:7780/mobile/appstore


  2. Get the latest OBI EE sample install including BIMAD within a downloadable VM, and run the entire environment on your own laptop or server. See this @ Oracle BI and EPM Demonstration SampleApp V309 on OTN.


  3. Download the BIMAD install as an add-on to your existing 11.1.1.7.1 OBI installation.
