Convert Today, Rain Tomorrow

There seemed to be a fair amount of questions today at the demo pod around converting from Actuate/Crystal/Oracle Reports to BI Publisher. Allow me to point out where you can find tools and/or information to make your conversion to BI Publisher a little smoother.

To convert Oracle Reports to BI Publisher, Ike Wiggins demo'd a cool little conversion utility at a session this afternoon. Check out his blog, where you'll find the download, a little tutorial and FAQs.

To convert Crystal Reports to BI Publisher, sorry, no utility here. But, check out the white paper on the OTN. We heard from Corey at Gallup today on how they were able to convert their Crystal reports to BI Publisher.

To convert Actuate Reports to BI Publisher, there's a conversion utility. Just do a search on My Oracle Support for patch # 8288024.

And now for what's coming tomorrow....

Well, if you believe the forecast, I suggest a raincoat, umbrella, galoshes...you know, those awful black rubber boats you had to wear as a kid. I hear we're in for a lot of the wet stuff. Hopefully, the anticipated precipitation doesn't stop people from making it to the session over at the Westin where we'll be talking about how E-Business Suite, JD Edwards, Peoplesoft and Siebel use BI Publisher to produce those pixel perfect reports.

If you're at the Marriott, you might want to check out Paul Rodwick's session on the Oracle BI Roadmap and Strategy. Check out where Oracle BI's headed.

And, yes, there's another one of the JD Edwards hands on labs too.

If you just want to stay high and dry, come over to Moscone West and play a little golf at the Callaway Experience.

Did I mention, the BI Publisher demo pod is really, really close to the Callaway Golf Experience? No? Well, it is. We're in the back on the right, Pod W-083. Our knowledgeable BI Publisher team will be on hand to show you demos and answer your questions.

Thanks for the update. Can someone post where Hyperion BI fits in the roadmap Paul presents tomorrow. Specifically Hyperion Interactive Reporting. Thanks

Tom -- did you attend the Road Map session? Hyperion IR is ... Covered under Oracle Lifetime Support Policy. There may be selected integration with strategic products where feasible. There may be migration tools or methodology where feasible.

Motivation can influence choices, learning and performance throughout sport. If a musician is not inside a positive psychological point out, mistakes will be produced in the performance, and they're going to not perform with their best stage.
