Providing actionable business intelligence across the enterprise to enable informed decision-making and streamlined business processes is an obtainable goal. Team members from Oracle and KPI Partners presented this virtual event that helps provide the basic foundation and understanding you need in order to know where to start, how to select trusted advisors, how to form your team, how to set user expectations, and what pitfalls to avoid.
Guests Simon Miller and William Hutchinson have recently authored a new book within the Oracle Press series titled 'Oracle Business Intelligence Applications: Deliver Value Through Rapid Implementations'. Their book serves as a guide to anyone who has been touched by an Oracle BI Applications purchase and implementation, including CXOs, business managers, functional end users, implementers, IT support, and data warehouse professionals.
With over 25 years of experience, Simon and Will can help provide perspective into several areas:
-Why you would consider purchasing a pre-built analytic application?
-The challenges and risks of building a data warehouse from scratch
-Are Oracle BI Applications applicable for your needs?
-What should you be aware of when implementing?
-How can you extend and make a pre-built BI application your own?
-How can Exalytics help with a deployments?
-Understanding of the different technical components of Oracle BI Applications
-What does Oracle's out-of-the-box BI application include in terms of content?
Those who joined us had the opportunity to see Oracle BI Applications through the eyes of two tenured individuals who have built their careers around explaining what the BI Applications are and how they can help an organization.
