    Hi,

    Regarding recommendation no 8 "Oracle Discoverer users should migrate to Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) or Oracle Business Intelligence Applications (OBIA)", can you please suggest which version of OBIEE/OBIA is certified with 11i/R12.1. Please let me know the relevant documents to upgrade existing Discoverer 10gR2/11gR1 reports to OBIEE/OBIA.

    I looked into https://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/resource/certifications.html, and MoS Certification tab but can't find any reference on which version/patchset of OBIEE/OBIA is certified with 11i/R12.1.

    Hi, Chirag,

    I'm afraid that I don't have much visibility into the OBIEE certification matrix. You can check these in the Certifications tab on My Oracle Support.

    Regards,
    Steven
