Build a Performance Layer for Oracle Business Intelligence Applications 11g [UGF9911] 
All the best work on your Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition–based system will be wasted if users are frustrated with long response times for dashboards and reports. Learn from an Oracle ACE with more than 10 years of implementation experience what contributes to poor performance and what the best solutions are to improve the end user experience and user adoption. This session discusses the creation of a performance layer to make dashboards and reports run at high speed. Samples scripts and the necessary mapping into the Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Repository are also reviewed, plus architect and project manager considerations. The context is Oracle Business Intelligence Applications 11g, but the concepts are equally valid for custom-built solutions.
