OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x: Error Correction Support has Ended - What to do to keep receiving bug fixes and enhancements

A reminder that Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) 11.1.1.6.x "Error Correction Support" ended in April 2014.

OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x: End of Error Correction Support
Doc ID 1642219.1

Although already outlined in previous posts, the support team is still receiving numerous requests for patchsets on older versions of OBIEE.

Every version within a product's life cycle has an "End of Error Correction Support after a defined Grace Period" date.  The grace period for OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x expired one year after the release of OBIEE 11.1.1.7.0. 

With OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x now supported under the Oracle Lifetime Support Policy (PDF), it is important to be aware that development will no longer provide the following for OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x:

  • one-off patches
  • back-port fixes
  • patch sets or bundle patches

This means there is no further addressing of errors, bugs or enhancements within OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x.

Further information on OBIEE Error Correction Support is outlined in knowledge article:

Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Error Correction Support
Doc ID 1664916.1

Customers with existing OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x environments should ensure they are on the terminal release of OBIEE 11.1.1.6.12.

The OBIEE 11.1.1.6.12 release was made available in September 2013. Details for the related patch numbers and direct links to download are listed in knowledge article:

OBIEE 11g: Required and Recommended Bundle Patches and Patch Sets
Doc ID 1488475.1

Upgrading to OBIEE 11.1.1.7.x ...

The download details for the latest version of OBIEE 11.1.1.7.x are also available within the knowledge article:

Doc ID 1488475.1 OBIEE 11g: Required and Recommended Bundle Patches and Patch Sets

There are several resources available to assist with an upgrade to OBIEE 11.1.1.7.x. A recommended first stop is the knowledge article:

Doc ID 1517518.1 OBIEE Upgrade Advisor 11.1.1.x to 11.1.1.7.0

OBIA 11.1.1.8.1 - What's New

Further to our previous Blog post "OBIA 11.1.1.8.1 Now Available" ...

A summary review to highlight the What's New in this latest Oracle Business Intelligence Applications (OBIA) 11g - 11.1.1.8.1 release.

WHATS NEW

This new release of OBIA 11g adds:

  • Prebuilt Connector for Oracle Procurement and Spend Analytics with Oracle JD Edwards
  • Expanded functional content coverage across existing OBIA
  • New utilities and enhancements to increase productivity and further drive down Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

New Prebuilt Connector for BI Applications

  • Oracle Procurement and Spend Analytics introduces a new adapter that provides out-of-box integration between Oracle Procurement and Spend Analytics and Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, enabling purchasing and sourcing organizations quickly identify savings opportunities and improve operational performance through decision-ready, best practice analytics.

New Content Enhancements: Significant expansion of content improves existing OBIA including:

  • Oracle Human Resources Analytics expands analysis on HR programs and workforce performance with the introduction of Talent Management Analysis, to help HR and business managers assess talent strengths and build potential leaders by delivering greater insight into job profiles. Improvements to Absence Management, new support for Workforce Frozen Snapshots and Workforce Flex Fields are also available.
  • Oracle Financial Analytics improves company Financial Performance with the new Subledger Accounting Module, providing complete account balance analysis, including supporting reference balances and drill down to accounting transactions. Aging Snapshot restoration for Receivables and Payables, drilldown from Payables to Purchase Orders, and Fixed Assets support for GL Posting Status are features also included in the release.
  • Oracle Project Analytics expands insight into project-based data with new Earned Value Management Analysis, providing visibility for Project Stakeholders into Planned Value, Earned Value, and Actual Cost. Analysis of variances and indices, derived from Cost and Schedule Variance, CPI, TCPI, SPI and TSPI, is also available.
  • Oracle Supply Chain & Order Management Analytics introduces Costing and Inventory Turn support for Oracle JDE EnterpriseOne. In addition, the ability to save and restore the Inventory Snapshot when executing a full load is now supported.
  • Oracle Student Information Analytics introduces new Financial Aid Analysis, containing term-based detail information associated with a student award such as amount, status, disbursement, and aid type.
  • Oracle Manufacturing Analytics and Enterprise Asset Management Analytics have been re-introduced into the BI Applications data model. Although new with ODI, both modules provide now the same broad functionality available with BI Applications 7.9.6.4
  • Unstructured Data for Information Discovery - The BI Applications Data Model has been extended to include unstructured CRM and ERP text fields. Sample Information Discovery templates - including ODI interfaces and runtime security definitions - provide the ability to quickly create sample Information Discovery Applications from combined structured and unstructured data.

New Utilities and Enhancements to increase productivity and drive down TCO

  • New Data Lineage Tool allows customers and implementers to track lineage from source to target - improving information transparency across their enterprise 
  • Configuration Management expands System Setup and Load Plan definition capabilities, including the registration of multiple instances for the same Product Line Version, UI enhancements to support DW connection configuration and Load Plan definition, and Load Plan definition migration.
  • Fact Partitioning IKMs and Parallel Index Builds are key performance Innovations introduced with this release. The former enables a feature that tags partitions so that only the indexes that need to be re-built during incremental loads are executed. The latter uses ODI parallel process so that Indexes can be built using multiple session (faster than and in addition to DB parallel).
