iTrain's course, from a ground up approach will provide attendees essential RPD (Repository Metadata) management skills progressing to also extend the initial repository and model more complex business requirements, including: logical dimension hierarchies, multiple logical table sources, aggregate tables, partitions, and time series data. Following training attendees will have the essential Oracle 12c Business Intelligence (OBI) repository management skillset.
The course provides attendees hands on experience to build their own 12 OBI Repository (RPD, Repository Metadata). Students learn how to build physical and logical joins, simple measures, and calculation measures and how to validate their work by creating and running analyses, and verifying query results using a variety of methods and tools.
This hand on course will also demonstrate how to import schemas, design and build logical business models, and expose business models to users in the Oracle BI user interface.
You will learn how to model more complex business requirements, such as logical dimension hierarchies, multiple logical table sources, aggregate tables, partitions, and time series data.
As with all iTrain courses this can be delivered as a closed course on your site or a third party location. As company specific training iTrain will work with you to tailor content to your organisation and project's specific requirement and objectives. To assist with this iTrain provide a full mobile classroom the Classroom in a Box.
