BIC2g Updated - Now with 64bit OS

A major update to the BIC2g images is now available on our website at /bic2g.

Much of the Oracle software has been updated. A complete list is available at our website. The biggest news about this release is that it runs on Windows Server 2008 64-bit Standard Edition. This means that you can now apportion more than 3gb of physical RAM to the server, dramatically improving the performance of the image. This also means that whatever laptop, desktop, or server you use to host the image must be able to host a virtualized 64bit OS.

We now have a single offering: a VMware virtual machine including a license of Windows Server 2008 64-bit Standard Edition. Per Microsoft licensing rules, we cannot deliver an image without including a license of Windows Server 2008.

If you have any questions about the new image, send them to bic2g@vlamis.com.

BIC2g:BI&EPM June 2009 Image Overview Webcasts

Join us for a pair of webcasts on August 11, 2009 announcing the availability of the BIC2g: BI & EPM Jun09 Windows Demo Image for Oracle Partners.

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 June 2009 image, the BIC2g: BI and BIC2g: EPM (Hyperion EPM) images have been combined and the Oracle software has been updated to the latest releases as of June 2009. These virtual machines contain a complete demonstration and training environment, with data sets, and demo scripts to support prospect and customer demos. It's also an ideal platform to support proofs of concept. They are available for purchase by Oracle Partner Network members.

The first webcast is targeted to people that are not familiar with the BIC2g program. The second webcast is targeted to users already familiar with the BIC2g program and will go into more depth about what is new and allow time for questions and answers.
