UKOUG Special Event

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

Speaker Details For The UKOUG Reporting Tools & BIW Special Event

The UK Oracle User Group is holding a Reporting Tools & BIW Special Event on March 18th at the Renaissance Hotel Heathrow, and they've been lucky enough to get hold of some excellent Oracle and partner speakers for the event. As well as a keynote presentation and an 'Ask Oracle' panel session, there's three parallel presentation streams dedicated to business, technical and partner presentations.

The day starts with a presentation by Jon Page, Oracle's VP EMEA, Oracle Business Intelligence and Warehousing, entitled "Oracle Information Architecture", with a follow-on presentation by Marianne Slight entitled "Corporate Performance Management and Enterprise Planning and Budgeting". Corporate Performance Management is one of Oracle's current business intelligence initiatives, and in the light of recent announcements around the Customer Data Hub and Enterprise Planning & Budgeting these should be a useful couple of presentations.

The technical stream features a number of well-known Oracle speakers, covering Oracle Database 10g, Oracle 10g OLAP, and the new Discoverer 'Drake' OLAP tool;

  • Lillian Hobbs (author of the Oracle R2 Data Warehousing book) is presenting with the Britannia Building Society, on Oracle 10g Database Tuning Experiences, and more that's new in 10g. I missed Lillian's recent presentation at the UKOUG conference so I'm particularly keen to catch this one.

  • Andy Osborn, Oracle's Vice President Discoverer Product Development is giving a preview of the next release of Oracle Discoverer, codenamed 'Drake', that allows you to build queries against both standard relational tables, and Oracle OLAP data via the OLAP Catalog.

  • Morgan Russell, Director, BIW Technology & Global OLAP Professional Community Leader, will be talking about Oracle 10g OLAP, with a particular emphasis on reporting and administration. Morgan is very well known to the Oracle OLAP and Express community in the UK and Europe, and it's a particular coup to get her to speak at the event.

The business stream focusses on the business issues behind reporting and business intelligence, and as well as presentations by Barclays Bank and GE Life, there's also a live demonstration of Enterprise Planning & Budgeting in action.

  • Lyn Alexander, Business Intelligence Manager for Barclays Financial Planners, is giving a presentation on Data Mart Consolidation & KPI Reporting; Lyn looks after the BI needs for a number of Barclays financial services brands, and will be giving some excellent insights into how a successful reporting system is delivered and run. Lyn's one of my customers and I'll be co-presenting with her, in my case going into the more technical aspects of their system.

  • Ian Starkey, from GE Life, will discuss the use of OFA for management reporting within a GE business, covering the benefits of using OFA, the lessons learnt during the implementation, and demonstrating some of the unique features of the implementation that have improved the efficiency of the OFA administrator and OFA users.

  • Oracle's Marianne Slight will also be giving us a live demonstration of Enterprise Planning & Budgeting, the long-awaited successor to Oracle Financial Analyzer and Oracle Sales Analyzer. EPB is due for release this year, so it'll be an excellent chance to get a first look at this tool.

A number of companies are sponsoring the event, including Plus Consultancy, Oracle, Microstrategy, Cognos, Noetix, DecisionPoint and InfoCyclone, and each of them is giving a presentation in the third, partner, stream. As one of the Plus Consultancy team, this is a particularly exciting event for us as we're giving a presentation and live demonstration of Qubeview, our new BI Beans-based Oracle OLAP reporting suite.

If you're in the UK or Ireland, and you're interested in reporting and business intelligence on the Oracle platform, be sure to register and come along, as it'll be an invaluable way to learn about new product developments, and discuss business and technical issues with other event delegates.

Full details of the event, including the agenda, how to register, and how to get there, are on the UKOUG website.
