Get hands-on with 11g OLAP & Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition

Happy New Year to everyone!!

Following the announcement last month of two new 'Oracle By Example' tutorials on building and querying 11g OLAP cubes, here are the details of a further two tutorials on working with 11g OLAP and Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE).

The first tutorial shows how to create OBIEE metadata over 11g OLAP cubes

(if you are using 10g OLAP, use this tutorial to create OBIEE metadata instead)

The second new tutorial shows how to query 11g OLAP cubes using OBIEE Answers - using the metadata repository created during the first tutorial

While OBIEE Answers is a widely used query tool for Oracle OLAP (for an example, see the article on Micros Systems), it would be interesting to hear from people using some of the other components of OBIEE, especially some of the newly integrated 'plus' components like Smart View which appears to be receiving a lot of development effort from the BI/EPM folks.

Please feel free to share any experiences you might have in our comments section.
