Course Contents

iTrains OBIEE 11g Build Repositories course will use the Oracle BI Administration Tool to construct a simple repository. On completion of constructing the repository, students learn how to build physical and logical joins, simple measures, and calculation measures. Students will also learn how to validate their work by creating and running analyses, and verifying query results using the query log.

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.

Using the initial repository Students 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.

This course also covers the Implementation of Oracle BI Server security, management of Oracle BI Server cache, the set up of a multi-user development environment, and the use Administration Tools wizards and utilities used to manage, maintain, and enhance repositories. More advanced topics, such as implicit fact columns, bridge tables, usage tracking, multilingual environments, write back, and patch merge will be discussed.
