Oracle BI and Hyperion EPM Demo Images on Windows

BIC2G at OpenWorld 2009

Watch Dan Vlamis announcing Partner BIC2g at Oracle OpenWorld 2009.

Note: General concepts still apply, but details have changed for the December 2010 image.

Oracle's Business Intelligence Challenge To Go (BIC2g) demo environment has been extended to the Windows operating system through an exclusive arrangement with Vlamis Software Solutions, Microsoft, and Oracle. In the December 2010 image, the BIC2g image uses Microsoft Windows Server 2008 64-bit as the operating system and the Oracle software has been updated to the latest releases as of November 2010. This is built in a virtual machine that contains a complete demonstration and training environment with data sets and demonstration scripts to support customer demos. It's also an ideal platform to support proofs of concept. They are available for purchase by Oracle Partner Network members.

The BIC2g:December_2010 is available as VMware image that includes an OEM license for Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition.

Before the availability of this program, partners had to install and configure all of the software and load demos manually. These demo VMs greatly simplify the construction of a demo environment. All you need to do is install the VMware Player/Server software, and load the VM purchased from Vlamis Software. The virtual machine has everything you need to run the demonstration within the VM. Although the VMs can be configured to connect to the internet, it is not necessary to connect to the internet to give demonstrations to customers.


The Virtual Machine software is delivered by way of a download. The Microsoft licence key and the download links will be e-mailed to you once your order has been processed. This will take 1 to 2 business days. Please allow 5 to 10 business days for physical delivery of your Microsoft License, longer if you are outside of the continental US. A current Oracle Partner Network membership is required before purchases can be processed.



Support for installing and configuring the image is available through e-mail only. Please send all support requests to bic2gsupport@vlamis.com.
