For years now we've heard the cry: "One version of the truth!" While organizations invested heavily to build systems capable of presenting that single truth, users struggled to find the data to answer questions specific to their individual departments or job responsibilities. While a curated, Common Enterprise Information Model is still the target state for BI systems, it doesn't have to be the only game in town. What we really need is a BI tool that enables the speed and agility of departmental analytics while respecting the need of the enterprise to have a single, comprehensive voice.
In this presentation, we'll embark on a State of the Nation of Oracle BI and its ability to satisfy two disparate camps: those looking exclusively for "one version of the truth," and those looking for specialized analytics dependent on one place, one time, and one scenario. Specifically targeting Oracle BI Cloud Services (BICS) and OBIEE 12c, we'll examine recent innovations in the metadata layer that allow users to mash up individual data sets with those curated by and for the enterprise. Finally, we'll take an in-depth look at recent OBIEE 12c infrastructure and lifecycle management enhancements that support faster, leaner, and more targeted delivery.
