  • A key innovation in Oracle BI 11g is the first completely unified user experience that combines ROLAP and MOLAP.Sophisticated OLAP concepts, such as custom member selection, calculated members, and navigation of ragged and skip-level hierarchies is available right in the integrated dashboard, query, and analysis tools. Uniquely, this is not just optimized to take full advantage of Essbase, but these capabilities work across any combination or relational and multi-dimensional data sources—transparently without the user needing to care.Since many business analysts like to live their lives inside Microsoft Excel, Oracle BI provides first-class Microsoft Office integration.
