What Your Parents Didn’t Tell You… (About OBIEE 11g Presentation Hierarchies!)

So it’s been just over a week since I presented during the *optimal* [cough, cough] speaking time of 8:30 Friday morning on the last day of Collaborate 14 in Las Vegas. For those of you who were brave enough (or just hungover enough!?) to show up, I thank you. But I do also have to question your judgement a little…

If you weren’t able to attend and want to check out the Prezi, take a look here for the “birds and the bees” or “everything-you-wanted-to-know-but-were-too-afraid-to-ask” talk on 11g Presentation Hierarchies in OBIEE, here.


In it, I go through:

* Pitfalls and bugs to avoid (and how the heck to find the “totals at the bottom” option…)
* Performance considerations
* Proper key level modeling
* How to prompt on as well as drill through (while passing context) for BI analyses with presentation hierarchies

Each area is highlighted with recorded demos that are between 2-3 minutes or so in length. Take a look and let me know what you think. If there’s any interest, we may hold a webcast mid-May where I’ll present this to anyone who might care to get the voiceover dialogue with some Q&A at the end. If you’d like to sit in on it, drop me a line at jharms@emerald-cube.com

And if you’ll be out at Kscope14 in Seattle at the end of June, I hope to see you there. I’ve got a talk with Jonathan Gard on alternatives to OBIEE time series functions and one on using advanced OBIEE modeling/features to prove that SEC football is greater than BIG10 football… Well, is it really a debate? Hope you come to cheer with me (can I get a “Roll Tide”!?) or just to boo and heckle!
