Data Visualization for Oracle Business Intelligence 11g

Presented by Dan Vlamis and Tim Vlamis

The vast majority of organizations who implement one or more of Oracle’s Business Intelligence applications end up designing their own dashboards, analyses, and visualizations. During this informative session, we will evaluate several prepackaged dashboards and offer suggestions for extensions and improvements, review dashboard design best practices, and demonstrate cutting edge visualizations. Oracle BI 11g is perhaps the most complete and comprehensive Business Intelligence platform technology, but because it is so powerful and flexible, careful consideration must be given to the visual interface design in order to maximize investment returns. You’ll learn best practices in dashboard design along with specific dos and dont's. You’ll see how to customize dashboards using skins, style sheets, and HTML. You’ll understand how to extend OBI’s native visualizations with Java script and advanced visualizations. You’ll see how to adapt and modify your current dashboards, visualizations, and analyses for use with mobile devices such smart phones and tablets.

Integrating Oracle Advanced Analytics into OBIEE dashboards

Presented by Tim Vlamis and Dan Vlamis

This hands on lab will show how you can easily integrate results obtained using Oracle Advanced Analytics into OBIEE. Bring your computer along so you can work through the exercises with us in this Hands-On Lab. If your BI application only reports the past, you’re missing out on a major goal of BI systems. BI systems should be forward-looking, so they can inform decisions. In order to do this, you need some sort of analytics, whether they be simple questions like “where are we against plan” or “how does this compare to last year”. Or they can be more complex, as in “which customer segments provide the greatest possibility for our promotions” or “what would happen if we realign our territories in a different way?" In this hands-on lab you will be able to see how you can use Oracle Data Mining and Oracle R Enterprise to do the “heavy lifting” and then expose these results to the wider Oracle BI community using OBIEE, including using advanced visualizations powered by R.
