    Hi Team,

    This is great update.Could you provide some more reference notes to check the ODI 12c capabilities with respect to upgrade of OBIA? We are supporting ODI 12c components as part of a client's OBIA upgrade and wanted to keep an eye on the best practises.

    Thanks in advance

    The link to the Oracle Support site for Business Analytics Information Center brings me to the EPM Hyperion information center. Is that where it is meant to go to?

    Kind regards

    Hi Wilbert, thank you for bringing this to my attention. I removed the document from the blog. The reason why it was added to the blog was because it used to contain info for both Hyperion EPM and BI. Just recently, they split it up. Once the document for BI gets published, I will upload it to the blog.

    Thank you for publishing this, its good information. Is there any details on the upgrade path for this version? We are currently running OBIA and would really like to get off ODI 11.
    We also have an dual headed app environment, which also plan to upgrade to Oracle Analytics Server (on premise) at some point after the OBIA upgrade.
