OOW15 – A Look at Oracle Visual Analyzer

Posted on Tue, Nov 03, 2015 @ 7:30 PM

Continuing our week at Oracle OpenWorld, Tuesday and Wednesday we saw a number of Oracle BI/Analytics sessions, covering both current state and roadmap functionality.

Undoubtedly the key highlight of these sessions was the Oracle Visual Analyzer, Oracle’s new agile BI visualisations solution – this product was repeatedly demonstrated across conference sessions, including the CX Keynote. Combining breath-taking visuals and simplicity of use, the Visual Analyzer is being baked into both Oracle BI Foundation and Oracle BI Cloud Service, and is also being exposed as a standalone Cloud service too (the Oracle Data Visualization Cloud Service).

One of the key items on the agenda for our visit to San Francisco and the annual Oracle OpenWorld conference was to get the lowdown on the upcoming state-of-the-art for Siebel. Almost written off by some sections of the IT press in the mid-late noughties, Siebel has undergone significant investment by Oracle in recent years, most recently with its ground-breaking new user interface, Siebel Open UI

Siebel and BI Publisher With LDAP/ADSI

Posted on Wed, Jul 13, 2011 @ 3:33 PM

A while ago we were asked to introduce Active Directory authentication into a Siebel 8.1 and BI Publisher 10g implementation. Enabling Siebel on ADSI is straightforward – the fundamentals haven’t really changed in the last ten years – but we were curious to find out whether there were any issues in getting BI Publisher up and running with Siebel on ADSI, and indeed whether – once we had it up and running – there would be any limitations on functionality.

Posted on Mon, Jul 04, 2011 @ 2:44 PM

In last week’s posting, I outlined some of the key considerations for implementing a SOA-based architecture, and explained how support for SOA could in part be achieved by considering the functional granularity of the Web Services exposed through Siebel.

This post moves on from that, covering Service Abstraction and Loose Coupling with the context of Siebel, completing the core considerations to be taken into account when exposing Siebel Web Services in a SOA environment.

Siebel ADM

Posted on Mon, Jun 20, 2011 @ 12:44 PM

Nowadays we regularly use Siebel Application Deployment Manager (ADM) on client sites to help them to deploy Siebel configuration to Test and Production environments. It’s fair to say that ADM is huge leap forward in terms of managing what was previously a cumbersome, time-consuming and error-prone process. Though ADM has been part of Siebel since 7.7, Siebel 8 brought with it a vastly improved architecture, improving both stability and usability
