Oracle OBIEE Courses
This course is an introduction and overview of Dimensional Modeling. The course covers data warehousing, data design, and dimensional models.
Many DBAs and database implementers are very familiar with a concept known as “normalization”. However, for a data warehouse, which is the type of data that is the most efficient for reporting in tools such as OBIEE, a“denormalized” model is the best solution, and many DBAs and database designers are less familiar with denormalized models, or why they are important in the data warehouse for
analysis system. This course will also help DBAs and database implementers to understand these models.
The class is also quite appropriate for those who will be building the OBIEE metadata repository. A knowledge of dimensional modeling and an understanding of how to build an OBIEE repository will be complementary techniques that will play off each other in terms of building a really effective OBIEE system.

In this class, we will explore several advanced OBIEE topics, many of which require interaction between the criteria columns, results views, and dashboard prompts.
Oracle Visual Analyzer (VA) and its client-based sibling version called Oracle Data Visualizer Desktop (DVD) are components of Oracle’s Business Intelligence product line directed toward users whose interactions with data may be typically characterized as more “ad-hoc” in nature than those users who typically use OBIEE (Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition). Featuring an interface that is styled after products like Tableau, VA and DVD provide a means of analyzing data quickly, without a lot of ramp-up time for education. In this course, we will explore only the Oracle Visual Analyzer. Our exploration will encompass two broad categories: Data: How do we find (and/or potentially prepare) data that we want to analyze with VA? Presentation: How do we create visualizations of that data?
