The Problem No Vendor Has Solved


Until Now
COMPLETE BI SOLUTIONS ARE MUCH MORE THAN JUST DASHBOARDS
DASHBOARDS

PLUMBING

Data warehouse
design

Under the
Surface
Significant time,
resources and
expertise required

Data mapping &


transformation
from multiple
applications
Analytic models,
KPIs, metrics
Much more

Building BI Solutions is Challenging


Significant Investment, Skills and Time Required
Develop detailed understanding of operational data sources
Design a data warehouse by subject area
License an ETL tool to move data from operational systems
to this DW
Build ETL programs for every data source
License interactive user access tools

Research/understand analytic needs of each user community

These steps require


multiple different BI
and DW technology
INVESTMENTS

These steps require IT


or BI staff resources
with specialized
SKILLS

Build analytics for each audience

License/create information delivery tools


Set up user security & visibility rules
Perform QA & performance testing
Manage on-going changes/upgrades

These steps take TIME


to understand and
perfect as knowledge
of best practices is
learned

Typical Effort & Customization balance

Dashboards & Reports

OBIEE Metadata

Degree of
Customization

Involved

Additional dashboards and


reports, guided and conditional
navigations, iBots, etc.
Additional derived metrics,
custom drill paths, exposing
extensions in physical, logical and
presentation layer, etc.
Extension of DW Schema for
extension columns, additional
tables, external sources,
aggregates, indices, etc.
Extension of ETL for
extension columns,
descriptive flexfields,
additional tables, external
sources, etc.

11g Upgrade Options for


BI Apps Customers

BI Apps 7.9.6.x / OBIEE 11g Upgrade Plans

Upcoming Fusion BI Apps 11g and BI Apps


11g PS1 will uptake OBIEE 11g features
BI Apps 7.9.6.x certification with OBIEE
11.1.1.4.0 is under consideration

Option 1: Upgrade BI Apps With OBIEE 11.1.1.3.0

BI Apps 7.9.6.x is upgradeable to OBI EE 11g with the 11.1.1.3


release, but a number of known issues have been identified
and are discussed in the product documentation
Understand the risk of being an early adopter
Consider and include all the risks in your project planning
Require patience and risk tolerance
Consider environment requirements (Windows/Linux)
Recommended ONLY If there are critical OBIEE 11g features
that are needed, e.g. 64-bit operation, scorecarding, Answers+
etc.

Option 2: Upgrade BI Apps With OBIEE 11.1.1.4.0

Better than Option 1


11.1.1.4.0 includes lot of bug fixes
Still Requires few manual changes to RPD/Webcat to
complete the successful upgrade
Consider additional efforts in your project planning
Please do Cost vs Benefits analysis before
considering the upgrade
Consider installing in development environment and
start exploring the new features, even if upgrade is
not required immediately

13

Option 3: Upgrade Certified BI Apps Release (796x


with 11.1.1.4.0/11.1.1.5.0)
Best option as all the manual fixes will be done by
Oracle as part of certification
Still requires manual changes to customized objects
of RPD/Webcat, but changes should be minimal
It is highly recommended to wait for this release,
unless there is a compelling business need for the
immediate upgrade
