OBIEE12c — Pushing-Up Daisies … or more Relevant than Ever in the World of BiModal IT?

Tomorrow I’m going back to my roots and presenting on Oracle BI at the UKOUG Business Analytics SIG Meeting in London, April 5th 2016, and following on from the recent Gartner Business Analytics Magic Quadrant 2016 I’ll be asking — is Oracle BI dead and buried …

… or is it more relevant than ever in the world of BiModal IT, and Mode 1 + Mode 2 Analytics?

You won’t be surprised to find that I think it’s the latter … as Gartner set out in their press releases and articles around Modern BI Platforms and Mode 1/Mode 2 analytics, the key now is for IT departments to enable users to perform their own analytics and explore data on their own, not by doing it themselves but by creating a platform, both on-premise and in the cloud, to make this possible.

OBIEE12c with it’s strong enterprise background and support for data discovery and external data mashups makes it the ideal platform for delivering Gartner’s vision of a BIModal modern BI platform — and if you’re not at the SIG meeting tomorrow, my slides are on Slideshare here :
