Cameron Hawthorne - E Bus Sales analysis with Olap and Disco

Published on

Organisations that have deployed Oracle Discoverer reporting solutions in the E-Business Suite applications in their organisations over many years are asking how they can improve the performance of these solutions. One possibility is to add the Oracle OLAP Option and have the data pre-aggregated in cubes ready for instant analysis by the end users.

This presentation will showcase a recent solution that was developed to perform Sales and Purchases data analysis using Discoverer, the OLAP Option, and Oracle Warehouse Builder.

It will provide a detailed look at how to bring such a solution together and help your organisation achieve similar query performance improvements.
