It’s new release time and this week is a quite a bit deal for BI developers.
We’ve had both OBIEE 12c and ODI 12.2.1 released and, despite being busy with clients, I’m feeling anxious to start setting them up and having a look.
OBIEE is probably the more exiting for most people and the inclusion of the Visual Analyser and Data Mashups is certainly going to tempt a few to make the move.
Also out is ODI 12.2.1 with a focus on big data. This doesn’t really affect me and my current clients but there are a couple of other new features which could be very useful.
The first is the improved life cycle management, including integration with Subversion. I’ve been struggling with this a bit recently so it will be good to get the new version in and see what is possible.
The other item I’ve noticed in the support for Analytic functions in mapping expressions which should some powerful capabilities for adding ranks etc. and doing some complex aggregation that I usually end up doing in views.
