I thought I’d post my presentation on QA (testing) that I delivered at the BIWA Summit near Oracle HQ in California. The presentation is based off of the recent QA posts I did on my personal blog, with a bit more silly graphics on top of it.  The one take away from the presentation is that some people prefer the term "testing" as opposed to QA.  Good to know.  Anyway, enjoy!

Run Your Oracle BI QA Cycles More Effectively from KPI Partners


By the way... the 2013 BIWA Summit focused heavily on the future of BI and Data Warehousing.  Essentially, whatever we are doing now is going to radically change to include many new types of data from different places and sources, plus what kinds of analysis we do will also be greatly enhanced.  Oracle BI is layering on top of a whole plethora of Oracle’s Analytical technologies, including: Essbase, EPM, HCM, OLAP, RTD, and Endeca.  The OBI server or UI will have hooks into just about everything you can think of, making some advanced capabilities available to dashboard users.  We’ll see how it actually plays out, but in the future some pretty heavy stuff will be available in the dashboard.

Next up is a presentation on Performance Tuning the BI Apps which I’ll be delivering at KScope in June in New Orleans and Collaborate in April in Denver.
