This Oracle BI 11g R1: Build Repositories - Self-Study Course teaches you to build and verify the three layers of an Oracle BI repository, step-by-step. You'll begin by using the Oracle BI Administration Tool to construct a simple repository to address a fictitious company's business requirements.

Learn To:

  • Use the Oracle BI Administration Tool to build, manage and maintain an Oracle BI repository.
  • Build a dimensional business model to address business intelligence requirements.
  • Build and execute analyses to test and verify a dimensional business model analysis.
  • Use the Oracle BI Administration Tool to administer the Oracle BI Server.
  • Import schemas, design and build logical business models.
  • Validate your work by creating and running analyses.
  • Verify query results using the query log.
  • Expose business models to users in the Oracle BI user interface.
  • Model more complex business requirements, like logical dimension hierarchies, multiple logical table sources, aggregate tables, partitions and time series data.

Benefits to You

Enrolling in this course will also help you develop the skills to implement Oracle BI Server security, manage Oracle BI Server cache, set up a multi-user development environment and use Administration Tool wizards and utilities to manage, maintain and enhance repositories. While constructing the repository, you'll also learn how to build physical and logical joins, simple measures and calculation measures.

Explore Advanced Topics

Finally, expert Oracle University instructors will expose you to more advanced topics by enrolling in this course. These topics include fact columns, bridge tables, usage tracking, multilingual environments, write back and patch merge.

Skills Gained

  • 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
  • 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
  • Build the Physical
  • Business Model and Mapping
  • and Presentation layers of a repository
  • Set up a multiuser development environment
  • Use the Administration Tool wizards and utilities to manage
  • maintain
  • and enhance repositories
  • Enable usage tracking to track queries and database usage
  • and improve query performance
  • Perform a patch merge in a development-to-production scenario
  • Describe Exalytics machine and the Summary Advisor tool used in the machine
