Title: OBIEE and APEX: A Marriage Made in...Soccer?

Abstract: A couple of years ago, my colleague Pete Tamisin (@petetamisin) and I did a silly, fun presentation at a few industry conferences. The presentation used a fake soccer match that some Rittman Mead colleagues and I created in order to build a game tracking page within an OBIEE dashboard. It was a lot of fun making ourselves look like idiots in the video, but the ultimate “goal” (get it?) was to explore all the different ways we could creatively make OBIEE a friendlier tool for consumers, designers, modelers, and analysts to drive usage.

As in any game tracking page, the stats needed to be updated very often (we chose 30 seconds), and we explored a couple of different ways to get it done. We used OBIEE’s out-of-the-box write-back functionality (not great), and we also built an interface using JQuery and AngularJS libraries that inserted/updated data into our database using RESTful Web Services (yes, there's more to it, but we don’t have time for that now).

One option we discussed but ended up not using was building the same interface using APEX. In theory, we thought it could have been a good alternative for OBIEE’s write back. The only problem is, as a “true” OBIEE developer that I am, I know nothing about APEX.

This presentation will guide OBIEE developers on how to learn the basics of APEX, how to embed an APEX application in an OBIEE dashboard, and what real-life use cases could be.
