Oracle Business Intelligence je již ke stažení

Po 10ti kumulativních patches na verzi Oracle Business Intelligence, byla minulý týden uvolněna nová verze s označením Verze přináší více jak 200 vylepšeních, novou funkcionalitu a vlastnosti. Mezi ty nejdůležitější patří (více viz. datasheet):
  • New visualizations and user-interactions, including Performance Tile, Waterfall, and 100 percent stacked bar graphs. Breadcrumbs provide contextual awareness and navigation. Users can now anchor the header for tables or pivot views using the “Freeze Header” feature, which is also available on the BI Mobile app via the scroll gesture.
  • New Visualization Suggestion Engine helps business users select the chart type best suited for the display of current data and the analysis task they wish to perform— “Comparing Values”, “Analyzing Trends”, “Comparing Percentages”, etc.  An algorithmic engine evaluates data types and the cardinality of the result set to recommend the most optimal visualization.
  • New Oracle Hyperion Smart View for Office Integration. The Smart View Add-in replaces the Oracle BI Office Add-in as the primary Office application for Oracle BI Foundation. Both are still available with OBI  Users now can access the Oracle BI Foundation Catalog in Smart View, add dashboards and analyses, create new analyses from scratch, in Excel, and save them as either Excel worksheets or back in the Oracle BI Foundation Catalog.
  • BI Mobile Enhancements. All new visualizations are touch enabled and support gestural interactions. Double-tap on a view renders it in full-screen mode. Enhancements to email settings now allow users to email attachments in the PDF format also.
  • Tighter OBI-BI Publisher Integration. Translate OBI Dashboards to BI Publisher layouts automatically. Use multiple templates to  allow pixel-perfect printing of dashboards.  BI Publisher can now directly access subject areas in the Oracle BI Foundation Catalog, removing the need to create separate BIP data models.
  • BI Publisher Enhancements. Report Wizard enhancements, Layout Editor Extensions for Interactive Viewer, improved Data Model Editor usability, and private JDBC connections are now supported. XML and CSV formats can now be configured as “local sources”.  Integration with enterprise applications has been enhanced with the ability to convert an E-Business Suite catalog to BI Publisher. E-Business Suite Flex Fields are now supported as BI Publisher Report parameters.
  • Advanced and Predictive Analytics. OBI Dashboards and prompts can run Oracle R for Enterprise (ORE) scripts that perform complicated statistical analyses, and Oracle Data Mining algorithms and cluster analysis, and visualize the data set as interactive images embedded in Dashboards.
  • Big Data integration to Apache Hadoop as a data source. The BI Server is now able to generate Hive query language commands to query federated Hadoop data sources.
