06:50:  How does the KPI prebuilt content for real time differ from running a concurrent report directly on a transactional system, like EVS, doesn’t that diminish performance?

08:25:  When will Oracle release the next statement of direction for Discoverer?

09:02:  Is Oracle planning on creating a migration assistant that doesn’t require a 10g to 11g upgrade in OBIEE?

16:05:  Does KPI have a presence in Canada?

16:21:  (comment-question) We only do ADHOC queries basically dumping results into Excel or a file that users pull into their own software; Does Oracle have any product that would still meet those needs?

17:25:  We have the Hyperion 11g environment, can that be extended to incorporate OBIEE?

18:03:  Will they still need to go through all the migration processes that we mentioned to OBIEE answers to essentially do the same thing?
