OBIEE 11.1.1.6.2 Released!

As of last night,  Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite 11.1.1.6.2 BP1 is now generally available via support.oracle.com.

What’s New?

  • Oracle BI Mobile HD.  New iPad client and accompanying server support.
  • Quick Access User Experience: The Oracle BI Mobile app has been completely redesigned to make it easier for users to quickly access information they most often need. Live thumbnails enable faster discoverability of content, while a re-designed search interface searches across offline and online content.
  • Greater Interactivity: Touch and gestures are the primary way of interacting with content on tablets like the Apple iPad. The new release of the Oracle BI Mobile app makes it easier than ever before to use touch and multi-gestural interactions to work with BI content. With this release, users can take advantage of new gestures to interact with business intelligence information, including using the one-finger swipe, two-finger pinch, tap-and-hold, and tap-and-drag gestures.
  • Offline Access: In this version, Oracle BI Mobile enables always-available analytics to users.  Content can be saved for offline viewing and consumption and refreshed when back online.  A fine-grained security privilege allows administrators to grant or revoke the ability to save offline content for specific users or roles or groups.

The new Oracle BI Mobile HD client is compatible only with this new server release, and is available at http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/oracle-business-intelligence/id534035015.
