Kevin McGinley puts together in a blog the presentation he gave at the BIWA Summit. This blog is Part 1 in a 3 part blog series.
This blog from KPI Partners says that the following questions arise:
- What has to be configured in BIACM?
- What is FSM meant for?
- Where is DAC?
- How do I create an execution plan?
- What is an offering?
- How to monitor the load?

In the second part of the series, Andrew Fagence explains how to develop and deploy a custom style and message. He says, “There are many more combinations to try in terms of colours, fonts, other logo’s… The possibilities of customising OBIEE 11g to your companies needs are endless!”
Kent Graziano says, “This question came up at the recent World Wide Data Vault Consortium. Seems there are still many folks who build a data warehouse (or data mart) that do not include FKs in the database.”
He gives his main three reasons why you should include FK constraints in your Oracle data warehouse database as:
- The Oracle optimizer uses the constraints to make better decisions on join paths.
- Your Data Modeling and BI tools can read the FKs from the data dictionary to create correct joins in the meta data of the tool (SDDM, Erwin, OBIEE, Cognos, Bus Objects can all do this).
- It is a good QA check on your ETL. (Yeah, I know… the ETL code is perfect and checks all that stuff, bla, bla, bla)

“March 2014 turned out to be a banner month for the team working on Oracle R Enterprise, Oracle R Distribution, and Oracle R Advanced Analytics for Hadoop.” See the Oracle R Technologies page here and watch “StubHub Creates a Safe Marketplace with Oracle Advanced Analytics”
StubHub uses Oracle Advanced Analytics to understand its customers in its online marketplace. Analysis times are much shorter, setup was fast and easy, and data scientists like the integration of R with the data warehouse.
