Those crazy kids at ODTUG have done it again!
At this year’s KScope in New Orleans this user group is introducing an evening of crossover sessions. Over the years the event has grown and actually blended the traditional Oracle database development world with the world of EPM, Hyperion, and Essbase.
In fact many folks who have come down the typical Oracle development path, myself included, know very little about the other side. So for these past few years at the conference we found there were not a lot of people crossing the various tracks (after all there are so many options to choose from).
In order to promote better cross pollination and as a way to encourage folks to expand their horizons and start to understand the “other” side, ODTUG has added two evening sessions on Tuesday so that we can gain that knowledge and not have to skip any of our regualr sessions.
The sessions will be presented by seasoned ODTUGers and Oracle ACEs. Check out these sessions:
Oracle Database Tools 101: How Does All This Stuff Get Built Anyway?
John King, King Training Resources
If you’ve been an Essbase/Hyperion, Applications, or BI user you may wonder what all the “hubbub” on the other side of Kscope is all about. Or maybe you’re curious — “I know there’s a database under the covers and lots of developers; what do they do?” If you want to know about the underpinnings of your favorite Oracle software, this session is for you. We’ll talk about how it all fits together: database, SQL, PL/SQL, ADF, Forms, APEX, and more (without too many boring details)! Attending this session will improve your understanding of and ability to communicate with the “bit-twiddlers” in your organization.
Hyperion 101: An Introduction to the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Suite
Andrew Jorgensen, MindStream Analytics
Have you been hearing all this talk about Oracle Hyperion? Are you wondering what exactly an Essbase is?
This is the session for those who are looking for an introduction into Business Intelligence and Enterprise Performance Management. We’ll start with the core business problems that are addressed with these products. The session will then include an overview of all the products that cover the Oracle Hyperion Suite and what each is best used for. We’ll finish this session covering a variety of reporting options including OBIEE.
