Just got home from a speaking opportunity at the NCOAUG group.  They meet twice a year in the Chicago area.

I did a new topic:  OBIEE Tips and Techniques.  The session was well-attended.  I used to do these with Discoverer all the time. 

I discussed how to get the free Sample environment from Oracle/OTN...discussed how to run it and use it. 

Then I build a pivot table report and a report with a narative response in it.

I will be publishing a small book on these various tips.  Watch for 'OBIEE Tips and Techniques by Dan Hotka'.  I want the book to be affordable because I will publish a newer version as I do these presentations.  I will also include various tips I run across about the product.  It will be on Amazon.  Watch my website/newsletter for announcements on its availability.
