Tuesday, May 03, 2011 Release Announced

The latest release of Oracle Business Intelligence,, was announced today. The press release can be read on Oracle.com at New Releases of Oracle® Business Intelligence Software Enable Enterprises to Improve Timely, Accurate, and Role-Based Insight, or on Yahoo! at http://finance.yahoo.com/news/New-Releases-of-OracleR-iw-2880460762.html?x=0&.v=1

I am neck deep in stuff around this release, so I do not have anything more to post yet, but the plan is to put up several posts on what's new in this release, especially around mobile and spatial.

From the press release, here are the salient features of this release:
  • Support for the iPad and iPhone. On-the-go access to the complete range of alert, ad hoc analysis, dashboard, reporting, scorecard, “what-if” analysis,etc...  In addition, users now have the ability to initiate actions and workflows directly from their mobile devices. content is optimized for use with the iPad and iPhone – without requiring design changes to existing reports and dashboards.
  • Extended support for additional data sources including Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database, Oracle OLAP, Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services and SAP Business Information Warehouse (BW).
The software should become available on OTN for download shortly, and then on edelivery.oracle.com after that. Once the bits become available I will post an update. You do not have to wait for me to post actually - the software when available will show up on the Oracle Software Downloads page. Actually, if you are the impatient kind, this is the deep link to the download page for the Oracle Business Intelligence 11.x releases - Oracle Business Intelligence 11g Downloads
