Introduction To OWB 10gR2 "Paris" Presentation Now Available
September 24, 2004
Mark Rittman

Oracle's Paul Narth gave a presentation earlier today at Openworld in London, on the new features in OWB 'Paris', otherwise know as OWB 10g Release 2. The presentation can be downloaded from the Openworld website, and comes with a number of screenshots showing the new interface in this next release of OWB.

One of the big new features in OWB 'Paris' is the data profiler, which allows you to profile your data within the OWB interface, discover the structural content, identify anomalies, and then report on data quality once your warehouse is populated.

The mapping editor sports a redesigned interface, has a mapping operators toolbar, properties bar, and allows you to pan and zoom around a multi-screen mapping canvas.

One of the big improvements in 'Paris' is the data object editor, which allows you to define cubes and dimensions in a logical form, and then deploy them either to relational tables with ROLAP metadata, or to analytic workspaces. Then, you can either then deploy and populate your cube in a relational star schema, or alternatively, through the new AWXML feature, directly create and populate analytic workspace objects without having first created equivalent ROLAP objects.

The impact analysis report has been much improved in Paris, as has change management in general, which now allows you to perform 'what-if' analysis, and helps you more easily determine the cost of a project change.

Another interesting feature is support for 'Experts', a scripting feature (that uses OMB*Plus) that allows you to define a workflow and guided series of steps for departmental 'power users' to work with OWB mappings. If you have a database business 'power user' who commonly extracts his own data from the database, manipulates it, and then reports against it, the idea is that you can set up an 'expert' in Paris that allows him to do all of this, guided by your script, using mappings in OWB.

You can find out more details, and see some more screenshots, on Paul's powerpoint presentation.
