Collaborate 2012 wrap up - A Few Presentations Worth a Second Look

It's been a few weeks and hopefully everyone is fully recovered.  Here are a few presentations that really stood out.  No offense to any not mentioned, there were too many to attend and describe here.

Adam Crigger of Preferred Strategies presented "Using Oracle BI Publisher for JD Edwards Operations and Financial Reporting" He unveiled some fabulous layouts he built using BI Publisher on top of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne data.

John Peters of JRP JR, Inc showed us some very useful tips when modifying data templates in E-Business Suite in his presentation, "Adding Data Elements to BI Publisher Documents" He outlined very clearly the different types of data sources and best practices for updating the seeded E-Business Suite data extracts.

In her presentation, "Using Oracle BI Publisher to E-mail Customer ACH Payment Confirmations" Kristina Boone of MediaNews Group went over the step-by-step procedure she followed to create custom payment confirmations using an RTF template in BI Publisher. She then showed how to configure her JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system to run it. Great Stuff!

Glen T. Ryen, from Prisio Technologies presented "Oracle Payments in Release 12 – Take It To the Bank!" on Thursday to a nearly SRO crowd - impressive for get away day.  Those who stayed for this presentation were well rewarded.  Perfect balance between Functional and Technical and it gave enough detail and pointers to go deeper.  Several of the attendees around me commented that it was exactly what they were looking for.

I see that the Collaborate site is no longer hosting the presentations and white papers - bummer.  I'm told that the user groups - OAUG, Quest and IOUG will be making those available to members on their sites in a few weeks.  Please check with your user group or the presenter if you're interested in the material.

Collaborate 2012 update - additional Hands On Lab sessions

Hello Collaborators.

Great first 2 days at Collaborate. 

On Sunday saw Anthony Isele from McKesson tell a wonderful success story on how they converted critical contracts from Actuate to BI Publisher within Siebel CRM - A Case Study of a Migration to BI Publisher From Actuate at a Leading Healthcare Company.  Earlier Mark Andrezjewski and Shawn Scanlon touted the benefits of the Oracle Red Stack for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne customers - I Bleed Red, Oracle Red Stack that Is...

Big news on Monday from our friends on the JD Edwards team who introduced EnterpriseOne 9.1 with One View Reporting Press Release -- bringing the power and ease of use of BI Publisher 11g to EnterpriseOne customers.

Also saw Edelweiss Kamermann from the UYOUG share the good news about BI Publisher 11g for BI Publisher Enterprise customers and customers of BIEE -- BI Publisher 11g: Only Good News

Thanks again to the BIWA SIG of the IOUG and to Vlamis Software Solutions for again preparing servers and client machines to host the Hands On Labs. Like the past 2 years we had more people show up than we could accommodate.

For those of you who couldn't get a seat at the BI Publisher Hands On Lab on Monday, the IOUG has generously arranged for a repeat sessions on

Thursday 8:30 - 9:30 and 9:45 - 10:45 in Palm B 

Please come by for this opportunity to get your hands on experience with BI Publisher 11g.  Unfortunately the lab handouts are too large to upload to the blog site.  Please visit Building Reports and Data Models in Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher Hands On Lab and you can download the lab handouts from there.

I'm sure there were other wonderful presentations these past two days.  There are so many it's hard to get to all of them.

Looking forward to the rest of the show.
