OBIEE Security with Oracle Access Management Webinar: Jan 2015

January 15, 2015 @ 4:00 PM CET to 5:00 PM CET - Register Here!

With in-depth technical detail and demos, this live session will help you learn about integrating OBI EE with Oracle Access Manager (OAM).  This integration allows a user to login once and access the various BI components without getting challenged again, allowing the BI dashboards to participate in Single Sign on with other OAM-protected applications. This session will explore the process & steps required to integrate OBI 11.1.1.7 with OAM 11gR2 PS2 (11.1.2.2).  A presentation will explain the technical details along with the demo.

Oracle Identity Management and Access Manager enables organizations to effectively manage the end-to-end life-cycle of user identities across all enterprise resources, both within and beyond the firewall and into the cloud. The Oracle Identity Management platform delivers scalable solutions for identity governance, access management and directory services.

Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management 12c for Big Data and Analytics

One of the best reasons for introducing Hadoop into your clients is as a lower cost ETL and staging platform for any data warehouse... the so called “Data Lake” Concept. But as discussed by Gartner “Beware of the Data Lake Fallacy”... this still needs governance: “Without descriptive metadata and a mechanism to maintain it, the data lake risks turning into a data swamp.”

So, as a follow on to my last blog ( Partners’ Get-Started-Kit with Oracle Big Data and Analytics ), let’s now explore how you can help your clients to better govern and manage a cost effective data lake that delivers additional value to their data warehouse.

Oracle has expanded its Oracle Data Integration portfolio with the addition of Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management 12c, a comprehensive platform that helps reduce compliance risks and ensure the success of governance programs within organizations by providing much-needed business and data transparency (read the Press Release). Together with Oracle Enterprise Data Quality, Oracle Big Data SQL, and Oracle Database security you can manage and control all aspects of big data stewardship, lifecycle management, data protection, auditing, security, and compliance.

To find out more, start with these two webcasts:

Data Quality and Metadata Management for Big Data Governance webcast:
  • Understand how data governance can be applied to big data
  • Explore new Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management technology
  • Learn how data quality is integral to any data governance initiative

Big Data Integration for the Big Data Reservoir webcast:

  • Keep big data reservoirs accurate and real-time using Oracle Data Integrator and Oracle GoldenGate
  • Leverage Hadoop and Data Integration technologies across heterogeneous environments
  • Implement best practices using big data reservoirs to unlock the most value from your enterprise big data

Then try the Tutorial @ Tame Big Data with Oracle Data Integration

And Download a full version of Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management 12c software and documentation.

Partners’ Get-Started-Kit with Oracle Big Data and Analytics

If you are struggling with how (and why) to get started with “Big Data” and Hadoop based tools with Oracle and your Analytics practice, then see below for some resources and I will post some additional topics and hints on this theme in the next month. Especially start by trying the ETL tools (ODI & GoldenGate) on Hadoop as a lower cost ETL and staging platform for any data warehouse, and try out the new Oracle Big Data Discovery, Now Available - The Visual Face of Hadoop.

Hands-on Labs - Big Data and Analytics

There are several hands-on-labs available to help you get started with the platform which you can practice by downloading the pre-configured VM (Oracle Big Data Lite Virtual Machine):
