We have hosted the BI-Apps v11 Test Drive
onto an Exalytics box, and have updated the Test Drive workshop manuals for the

best in class business analytic examples specific to a business person's role
and needs - e.g. "HR analytics" for HR professionals, "Spend

These Test Drive Workshops are carefully
scripted to allow a customer business person (usually not IT) to navigate
for themselves around a series of dashboards and analysis targeted to show
how BI can help their business and drive ROI.

partners can book this facility and download the whole kit. We have different types of Test Drive such
