Automatically Create Oracle Business Intelligence Repositories for Oracle11g Cubes

An OBIEE Plug-in for Oracle11g OLAP was released on the OLAP Option page on the Oracle Technical Network today. The plug-in allows you to automatically create OBIEE repositories that can be used to query Oracle11g cubes. It's really, really easy. The OBIEE repository created by the plug-in allows OBIEE to query all content of the cube, including summary data and advanced calculations. This is a great way to demonstrate how the Oracle cube can enhance the performance and analytic content of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition.

The OBIEE Plug-in is used with Analytic Workspace Manager (AWM), the administrative tool of the Oracle OLAP Option. Only the most basic understanding of the OBIEE repository is required to use this AWM plug-in. The plug-in creates fully configured a physical database, business model and mapping layer and presentation catalog in the OBIEE repository.
