New Look for the Business Analytics Communities

(in via Mel)

Breaking News!

The Business Analytics Communities are transforming into Community Information Centers!

What does this mean for you?

Most importantly, nothing changes to the way you post your questions to our Communities.

Did you know that questions are not the only thing you can post?

If you want to share some product experiences, workarounds and other features why not start a discussion in the Community and let others learn from it?

A great way to 'Meet and Learn'.

So, what are the changes?

It's the layout. A new 'Look and Feel'.

If you check out the Hyperion Certifications for EPM Community you will see what you can expect from your Community once it has been transformed.

You will find your 'Welcome Message' followed by expandable blue widgets containing: Webcasts, Top Knowledge Documents, Links to documentation, etc.

Under this section (which is completely collapsible in the top left corner) you will find the featured discussions, discussions and documents.

If you have posted in either of these 3 section you will still find it here.

We hope to see you soon in our My Oracle Support Communities with your questions.
