Building BI Dashboards with Oracle Database 10g, Oracle Discoverer, and Oracle Portal
March 29, 2005
Mark Rittman

Building BI Dashboards with Oracle Database 10g, Oracle Discoverer, and Oracle Portal : "If you've been following the release of Oracle Business Intelligence 10g or keeping an eye on industry trends, you're probably aware that everyone is talking about business intelligence (BI) dashboards. BI dashboards bring together reports and graphs from several data sources and present information to users in a simple-to-understand, unified manner. The demand for BI dashboards from the user community has therefore led to numerous new features and improvements in Oracle's business intelligence tools, and the simplified creation of BI dashboards is one of the key new features of Oracle Business Intelligence 10g. This article explains the features of a BI dashboard, discusses the benefits to users, and steps through the creation of a dashboard with Oracle Database 10g; Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer (Oracle Discoverer), a component of Oracle Business Intelligence 10g; and Oracle Portal."

This is my first article for OTN, and looks at how you can create the above BI dashboard using Discoverer "Drake", Oracle Portal and the Videostore demo data that comes with Discoverer Administrator. Writing for OTN is a bit of an eye-opener (as it's Oracle, you have to be "spot-on" with references to product names and technical details) but it's nice to see an article up on the OTN front page. Take a look if you're looking to set a dashboard like this up.
