OBIEE & Hyperion Workspace Integration Update

I am hearing from Oracle that native integration with OBIEE and the Hyperion Workspace will be available with the 1st Service Pack of OBIEE 11G. So when the first release of OBIEE 11G comes out you will still have to go through the integration steps that you have to today with OBIEE version 1o.1.3.4 and Hyperion version 11.

Hyperion IR to OBIEE Migration Utility Update

The latest that I am hearing from Oracle is that the migration utility is in process of being rewritten to support OBIEE 11G which is coming out this year. So as of now the migration utility has still not been released.

Merry Christmas

Just wanted to drop a quick note and wish everyone a great holiday season. I certainly hope in 2010 I can find more time to post on our blog but something tells me that with another little one on the way it is going to be tough. With that said, I will continue to try to pass along relevant and meaningful information related to Oracle Business Intelligence. Some of the topics I am looking forward to covering in 2010 are:
  • The release of OBIEE version 11G
  • The continued integration/fusion of multidimensional and relational components within the Oracle BI framework
  • The release of the Hyperion IR to OBIEE migration utility
  • Holding out hope for the creation of a Business Objects Universe to OBIEE migration utility

This week Kerdock was awarded the "Oracle Partner Sales Readiness Verification initiative" certification. As a result, Kerdock is recognized as Oracle's go to partner for BI & EPM in the TOLA Region. We are excited to receive this designation and look forward to continuing to work with the Oracle sales team.
