This Oracle BI 12c: Build Repositories training teaches you how to build and verify the three layers of an Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) repository, step-by-step. Expert Oracle University instructors will begin by teaching you how to use the Oracle BI Administration Tool to construct a simple repository.

Learn To:

  • Construct the repository.
  • Import schemas.
  • Design and build logical business models.
  • Expose business models to users in the Oracle BI user interface.
  • Build physical and logical joins, simple measures, and calculation measures.
  • Validate your work by creating and running analyses.
  • Verify query results using the query log.
  • Implement Oracle BI Server security.
  • Manage the Oracle BI Server cache.
  • Set up a multi-user development environment.

Benefits to You

By taking this course, you'll walk away with the ability to 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. You will have developed the experience to use Administration Tool wizards and utilities to manage, maintain, and enhance repositories. Finally, you'll be exposed to more advanced topics, like implicit fact columns, bridge tables, usage tracking, patch merge, and managing service instances.

Skills Gained

  • Model partitions and fragments to improve application performance and usability
  • Use variables to streamline administrative tasks and modify metadata content dynamically
  • Use time series functions to support historical time comparison analyses
  • Set up security to authenticate users and assign appropriate permissions and privileges
  • Apply cache management techniques to maintain and enhance query performance
  • Set up query logging for testing and debugging
  • Set up a multiuser development environment
  • Use the Administration Tool wizards and utilities to manage, maintain, and enchance repositories
  • Enable usage tracking to track queries and database usage, and improve query performance
  • Perform a patch merge in a development-to-production scenario
  • Use Business Application Archive (BAR) files to move Oracle BI between environments
  • Build the Physical, Business Model and Mapping, and Presentation layers of a repository
  • Build and run analyses to test and validate a repository
  • Build simple and calculated measures for a fact table
  • Create logical dimension hierarchies and level-based measures
  • Check the model and then model aggregate tables to speed query processing

Good course that covers all aspects of DB2. Gives very good starting point to enable anyone to work efficiently within DB2 environment.

Fantastic and great training. Tons of hands-on labs to really make you understand the material being thought.

Tech Data provided me with all the resources required to familiarize myself with the TRIRIGA Lease module. The facilitator was very knowledgeable and provided comprehensive exercises and support to aid in my understanding of the application.

I took the AWS SysOps Traning class. Instructor was fantastic and the labs were fun and easy to understand. I had no issue
