Test Drive -- Powered by Amazon AWS
We have partnered with Amazon Web Services to provide to you, free of charge, the opportunity to work, hands-on, with the latest of Oracle's Business Intelligence offerings. By signing up to one of the labs below, Amazon's Elastic Cloud Computer (EC2) environment will generate a complete server for you to work with.
These hands on labs are working with the actual Oracle software running on the Amazon Web Services EC2 environment. They each take approximately 2 hours to work through and will give you hands-on experience with the software and a tour of the features. Your EC2 environment will be available for you for 5 hours, at which time it will self-terminate. If, after registration, you need additional time or need further instructions, simply reply to the registration email and we would be glad to help you.
Our Test Drives
This test drive will present a quick overview of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) 11g and allow users to create reports and dashboards for themselves. The lab uses version 220.127.116.11 of Oracle BI and showcases the following features: adhoc reports, graphs, maps, and color-coding.
This test drive covers using Oracle BI Publisher 11g to create simple reports based on Oracle Database. Also, it shows you how to create report layouts using the Layout Editor online, and how to schedule reports.
Excel Analysis of OLAP Data
This test drive allows you to see how easy it is to view and analyze data using Microsoft Excel from data from the Oracle database. Data is stored in cube objects in the Oracle database using the Oracle OLAP option. This data is accessed in Excel via the MDX Provider for Oracle OLAP from Simba Technologies.
This test drive walks through some basic exercises in doing predictive analytics within an Oracle 11g Database instance using the Oracle Data Miner extension for Oracle SQL Developer. You use a drag-and-drop "workflow" interface to build a data mining model that predicts the likelihood of purchase for a set of prospects. Oracle Data Mining is ideal for automatically finding patterns, understanding relationships, and making predictions in large data sets.
Map Views in OBIEE
This test drive will show you how to use OBIEE's new map views to reveal location based patterns in business intelligence data sets. You will see how to create new map views, add chloropleth layers, add variable shapes, and display different measures at different zoom layers. You’ll learn how OBIEE can incorporate spatial analytics and integrate large geo-spatial data sets for location based analysis.
