New BI Mobile App Designer Released

 This is a very exciting and cool new product that I have been beta testing for a few months now.  The Mobile BI Application Designer lets business users easily create interactive, mobile BI apps that work on any mobile device.  This new feature of OBIEE requires an upgrade to 11.1.1.7 and then 3 additional patches.  Full docs of the installation process are on the OTN link above.

Custom Styles & Skins for OBIEE 11g

This is a topic that has been coming up more and more in conversations with customers.  Mainly, customers looking to define a lightweight style for mobile specific dashboards.  There is a detailed whitepaper that was released a while back with specifics on the modification and customization of your OBIEE 11g deployment.

Another excellent resource is this Oracle by Example tutorial - Creating and Deploying Custom Styles, Skin, and Messages in Oracle BI EE 11g

Both resources should get you going, but if you need additional assistance, Oracle Consulting is always ready to assist!

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.

Availability
Although there are significant features in this release, it is delivered as a bundled patch set exclusively from support.oracle.com.  Install BI Foundation Suite 11.1.1.6.0 first, then follow the instructions in knowledge article “How To Apply The OBIEE 11.1.1.6.2 Roll-Up Patches [ID 1459232.1]”.
