Vlamis Force Directed Graph Plugin

Now available on the Oracle Analytics Library.

The Force Directed Graph plugin allows you to easily visualize hierarchical data.  You can click to expand and collapse nodes and each node’s location can be customized with dragging and pinning. The visualization automatically redistributes nodes to prevent overlap and each node is clickable to display subordinate data allowing you to visualize relationships.

BI Movie Magic: Maps, Graphs, and BI Dashboards at AMC Theatres

Presented by Maury Carollo and Cathye Pendley

AMC Theatres is transforming the way they see their business data through the use of OBIEE map views and other visualizations as they transition from a traditional Hyperion Enterprise reporting environment to a progressive OBIEE 11g implementation. Showing a bubble for each theater and color-coding and sizing them according to various performance metrics makes previously hidden patterns easy to see. Management can now watch the effect of various theater programs and policies and track them over time with maps, graphs, attendance heat maps, and performance tiles. Learn how a team comprised of business users, executive sponsors, BI experts, and IT leaders are making a huge difference in the future of one of America's entertainment leaders. Expect real world lessons, practical tips, and honest discussion of tradeoffs.

Data Visualization at SoundExchange - A Case Study

Presented by Cathye Pendley and Olly Wray

SoundExchange is the independent nonprofit organization that collects over $3 billion in digital performance royalties from Pandora, SiriusXM and most every American music streaming service and then distributes the money to over 110,000 artists and copyright holders. SoundExchange embarked on a mission to improve the quality of its Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) reports and dashboards. Come learn about the development of best practices and establishment of a standards manual that helped lead the effort. Hear about how executives are gleaning new insights from improved visualizations and dashboards in a live OBIEE system.

Oracle BI at Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Presented by Dan Vlamis and Cathye Pendley

How do a bunch of rocket scientists use Oracle BI to manage their business? Join this case study to see how JPL keeps track of how they track their projects, whether it be internal projects, or projects to send spacecraft to Mars. Included are assessments of various BI tools, data warehouse schemas, methods to manage metadata, and data visualization. We will also cover benefits of moving to Oracle BI version 12, including Data Visualization and the implications this has for data exploration and how this changes how JPL provides ad-hoc access to their data.

Data Visualization for Oracle BI 12c and Visual Analyzer

Presented by Tim Vlamis and Dan Vlamis

Oracle's Visual Analyzer tool is especially designed for data exploration, whereas traditional OBIEE dashboards tend to be designed for data explanation. How do you provide best practices for how to explore data, since this tends to be more ad hoc in nature? What training and guidance beyond the built-in suggestion engine should you employ? How do and when should you include Visual Analyzer insights on existing OBIEE dashboards? How does Visual Analyzer change the way we visualize data and develop analyses and dashboards? Join the conversation as we explore these topics in an engaging presentation.
This presentation updates the popular presentation on Data Visualization for Oracle BI 11g, updating the topic for the 12c release.
