[edited] I initially found this book to be confusing in the handoff between the 6 chapters of setup - about 5 chapters more than I wanted to know - and the actual BI development. The available DDL and database dump appear to be for an Oracle database, which I would expect, as you probably don't have OBIEE without it anyway. The book indicates that we will be using MySQL for the database. That has me confused about the topology and whether I'll get stuck in a later chapter. However, after spending a day attempting to get the BI Admin tool to connect with an Oracle DB, I'm happy to take the easier MySQL option.

The first 6 chapters have me wondering who the target audience is. Setting up IIS, LDAP, etc is not typically the job of a developer. Devoting a chapter to upgrading from 10 to 11g, considering that the book audience is a new user who just installed 11g via the instructions, is just odd. Perhaps worth an appendix entry at the most.

Since i haven't finished the book, I'll reserve final judgement till then.

I have been reading the book (about 25% so far) and find it quite informative, easy to read, and well laid out so far. Being thrust into the Oracle stack and thusly Oracle BI, this book has helped me sort out the components, get up and running more smoothly, and start exploring Oracle BI with purpose and direction. There are many other BI offerings from PackT, great ones that I have on my virtual bookshelf, but I wish this one had come out first. A must for newbies, and hopefully a great asset as I gain experience.

Format: Paperback
Helpfully, the book starts by telling that you need no previous experience with Oracle Business Intelligence 11g. It descends from BI 10g and Siebel Analytics. But much of the GUI was rewritten compared to 10g, so the authors suggest that BI 11g will feel quite different to those acquainted with 10g.

The book also tries to plug together packages from many acquisitions made by Oracle in recent years. The term Fusion Middleware is a means to group many of those packages into a systematic overall offering, that is easier for users to understand. Interestingly, Oracle currently only supports its WebLogic server as the application server for all this. It has not made a move to using IBM's WebSphere as an alternative server. Though in time this may change.

The text provides a concise summation of the numerous packages with the BI Domain. And readers who are programmers may be interested to know that Oracle has effectively standardised on 2 languages - C++ and Java. (It of course owns Java, after its purchase of Sun.)

The installation is complex enough that several chapters are devoted to it. Which gives you a good idea of how involved the rest of the text will be. Typically these days, a book about a software product just has a short chapter near the start about installation, and the chapter is often a trivial read since the install will be mostly by defaults. In the current book, there is much more to understand and tweak, if you are so inclined.

The intricacy of the install can be extended to the observation that another chapter is just about upgrading from 10g of the Web Catalog (and of another product) to 11g.

Of the remainder of the text, you have a choice of topics. Perhaps not all will be needed by each reader.

I cannot use the examples starting in chapter 8 as you (apparently) need a full install of Oracle (or is it MySQL????) to follow the examples. Very confusing. I used Oracle XE as my repository and this will not work for the sample database. No instruction of any kind. Very disappointed.

Our company just installed OBIEE and I am new to the product. I bought this book to help me learn OBIEE and it has been very useful. I have gone through most of the sections after the installation chapters and I feel that this book gave me a solid foundation of OBIEE knowledge to help me develop the repository and create reports. I feel confident that I can begin applying my knowledge to real-world applications.
