BI Mobile App Designer - Training

(in via Lia)

Now - with the lately released BI Mobile Apps Designer ( we reported earlier ; ) )  it might all be good and nice, but the real question for this kind of thing is:

How do I get started?

Lucky as we are, Oracle has thought along the same lines and provides an "Oracle by Example" training for BI Mobile Apps Designer.

"This Oracle-by-Example (OBE) introduces features of Oracle BI Mobile App Designer, introduced in Release of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (Oracle BI EE). This OBE covers creating basic mobile apps, designing apps with tile pages, and creating navigation lists for investigating data."

You can find this in the Oracle Learning Library (OLL), which is available for customers, partners and Oracle employees. (A direct link is BI App Designer OTN )

Oh, and while you are on it - have a look around the OLL - there are tons of Examples for a variety of products.

If there is something specific that you need and it can not be found there, you may want to use their contact form, to get in touch and put in a request for content.


This blog talks about the latest news and upcoming events regarding Oracle EPM abd BI.
