  3. 3. Introduction Subject Matter Experts in OBIEE Technology & Applications + Six Sigma Black Belts + Capability Maturity Management Integrated (CMMI) Experts + Deliberate Creativity & Parallel Thinking – Dr. Edward de Bono Trainers + Green IT proponents = 13 week Challenge! Step Ahead Solutions, Inc Specialized in Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Technology Foundation Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Applications – ERP Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Applications - CRM ―People are now a days trapped in traditional philosophy with its emphasis on analysis and description. They are also trapped in logic which is only a very small part of operational thinking‖ - Dr. Edward de Bono © 2010 | Step Ahead Solutions, Inc. Do not distribute without prior permission.
  4. 4. What is Cloud Computing? • Cloud Computing is a term that defines the use of computing resources from the Internet. In cloud computing, software application is provided as a ‘service offering’ and hence the term SaaS (Software as a Service). Further the Cloud Computing service are characterized by - Service on Demand - Is elastic - Is paid by usage ―Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination‖ – Oscar Wilde © 2010 | Step Ahead Solutions, Inc.

  5. 5. What is Cloud Computing? Why is it attractive today? Economics No upfront costs No operational costs Fast, simple and secure - can be accessed from anywhere/anytime Challenges Customer Needs • Security • Competitive pricing • Performance • Performance guarantees • Data Privacy • Availability • On premise private cloud • Integration with on premise apps • Prevent violation of governance policies • Limited customization ―Experience is the child of thought, and thought is the child of action‖ - Benjamin Disraeli © 2010 | Step Ahead Solutions, Inc.

  6. 6. Why Business Intelligence on Cloud? • BI is an expensive proposition for any organization – BI demands high upfront costs – Is expensive to maintain and support • Lack of highly skilled people in BI • All the big players are into it – IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, … • BI now becomes available for small and medium business, no longer the domain of large enterprises • BI technology is highly adaptable for Cloud Computing capabilities • Complements the varying needs of the clients • Can well be integrated with both on premise and cloud based BI solutions for the clients. ―The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination‖ - Albert Einstein © 2010 | Step Ahead Solutions, Inc.

  7. 7. OBIEE on Cloud • OBIEE Technology is perfectly adapted for Cloud Computing – Greatly simplified architecture resulting in three services namely the Oracle BI Server or SAS Server service, Oracle Presentation Server or SAW Server service, and Java Web host service. One optional Oracle Scheduler Service. – One binary file that contains the meta data of the BI application. – One reporting directory structure, namely the web catalog • First truly Enterprise Class Server product from ground up • First BI technology platform that comes along with the complete suite of Application Analytics for Oracle ERP and CRM as well as any custom BI application development on non Oracle platform as well. ―It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.

  9. 9. OBIEE on Cloud Business Objects Cognos 8 • No Server Side Caching, no shared cache • Simple changes to queries like group, ungroup, add columns, re-query the DB • If you drag 20 attributes, 20 queries of the DB • Multiple SQL Statements for repeated actions within a query, such as adding items to an LOV • Resource Intensive, Need More Hardware to Perform • Cognos 8 is not aggregate aware- it relies on the DB optimizer • Cognos 8 can’t do time based aggregations / Query Fragmentation such as last period, first period – must do in a cube • Cannot easily join data from 2 DBs • PowerPlay - limited cube capacity, static, data duplication, proprietary • ReportNet against PowerPlay performance isssues due to translation layer • Analysis Studio performance issues ―Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will be‖ - Kahlil Gibran © 2010 | Step Ahead Solutions, Inc.

  10. 10. Recap !!! Let us briefly recap what we have discussed so far.  We looked at what cloud computing really is?  We further discussed why BI on cloud makes sense?  Then we explored why OBIEE is a perfect product for cloud computing  In the process we also presented some key challenges that you might experience based on your needs  And we kind of overlaid in context of what successful and famous people had to say to help us at least think in a different way. Let us now introduce a bit of creativity and get on to the next segment that is built upon what we discussed till now. © 2010 | Step Ahead Solutions, Inc. Do not distribute without prior permission.

  12. 12. Key Challenges ―Most executives, many scientists, and almost all business school graduates believe that if you analyze data, this will give you new ideas.

  13. 13. OBIEE on Cloud ―Sometimes the situation is only a problem because it is looked at in a certain way. Looked at in another way, the right course of action may be so obvious that the problem no longer exists.‖ Edward de Bono © 2010 | Step Ahead Solutions, Inc.

  20. 20. The Balancing Act! • Map your BI needs to the options available for OBIEE on Cloud • Do a trade-off analysis on various scenarios • Work with the BI Cloud Computing service company that can fulfill your needs Priorities Challenges • Lower cost of BI acquisition • Security and Governance • Deliver quality BI to business • Lack of skilled BI resources • Generate measurable value to • Ability to meet the SLAs your organization "Remember that life's a great balancing act...‖— Dr. Seuss (Oh, the Places You'll Go!) © 2010 | Step Ahead Solutions, Inc.

  21. 21. The Balancing Act! Predictions Options Gartner predicts that by 2012, more than 35% of global 5000 companies will regularly fail to make critical decisions because they don't have access to timely information and the analysis to do so. By 2010, 20% of organizations will have an industry-specific analytic application delivered via software as a service (SaaS) as a standard component of their business intelligence portfolio. By 2012, business units will control at least 40 per cent of the total budget for BI Facts: BI Implementation rate and BI user acceptance is very low.

  26. 26. Wrap-up In our second segment, we introduced creativity and looked at some creative approaches to solving common challenges that we face today. Then, we looked at leveraging key BI capabilities through Cloud Computing and discussed various options that you might have. Then we did a balancing act of priorities, challenges, predictions and options setting the stage for a Trade-Off Analysis of OBIEE on Cloud. We then showed you what we offer in Cloud Computing and then took you through a brief demo. I hope I was able to present why OBIEE on Cloud, difference between reality and perception when it comes to OBIEE and how we could best leverage Cloud computing to the best of our advantage. © 2010 | Step Ahead Solutions, Inc.
