Seamless Reporting With Endeca & OBIEE: Make Them Work Together

Posted by KPI Partners News Team on Mon, Sep 08, 2014 @ 10:38 AM

by Madan Thota

Endeca Information Discovery (EID) is a data discovery tool that helps business analysts to rapidly explore relevant data.  If you are already using Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) and wish to reuse the BI data models from Endeca Information Discovery, here are the options.  The primary difference between both tools is that one is used for pre-defined analytics while the other is used for having a conversation with your data (analytics vs information discovery).  The overall goal for both approaches is to get the most value out of the data available.

OBIEE QA/Testing Presentation from the 2013 BIWA Summit

Posted by KPI Partners News Team on Tue, Mar 05, 2013 @ 10:40 AM

by Jeff McQuigg

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!

Endeca Brings Enhanced BI Capabilities to Oracle

Posted by JEREMIAH JOHNSON on Thu, Nov 08, 2012 @ 12:01 AM

When Oracle chose to enter an acquisition agreement with Endeca back in October of 2011, most industry experts agreed that this deal would further help to enhance the BI capabilities of Oracle. However, no one could have predicted the impact the deal has made roughly one year later. Oracle made its claim in the BI industry with its implementation of OBIEE or Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition. OBIEE helped to cause a dramatic shift over to self-service Business Intelligence. With Endeca now on board, Oracle is rapidly transforming what was once considered classic BI usage and bringing on new types of unstructured data, with factors such as text files and management of social media.
