Well it’s the Monday after the week of the BI Forum in Brighton, and as promised here are some photos, and a link to the presentations, for anyone that couldn’t make it. The three days went very well, starting with the Masterclass by Kurt Wolff on OBIEE repository and reporting design approaches.
After Kurt’s session on day 1, the main session then carried on during days 2 and 3, and here’s the links to the presentations we were able to publish (most of the Oracle ones, as they covered future functionality, unfortunately can’t be made available outside of the event):
- Robin Moffat, Morrisons – “Performance Testing OBIEE”
- Elio Idema, Oracle Corporation – “Complex Modeling with OBIEE 11g”
- Emiel van Bockel, Centraal Boekhuis, “The art of modeling with OBIEE”
- Antony Heljula, Peak Indicators “BI EE Architectures and Sizing”
- Mark Rittman, Rittman Mead “Inside the Oracle BI Server”
- John Minkjan, Ciber “OBIEE Customizations: When you are in the kitchen, learn to cook.”
- Venkat Janakiraman, Rittman Mead “Fusion Middleware 11g – ADF Business Intelligence Components”
There were also a number of excellent blog posts and round-ups after the event (as well as lots of #biforum tweets), and here’s a selection of the ones that I’ve come across – let me know if I’ve missed any:

Congratulations also to Robin Moffat, who won the award for best presentation of the BI Forum. Considering that this was Robin’s first ever presentation, and to a very technical audience, this is an incredible achievement and very well deserved. We’re looking forward already to Robin’s presentation next year!
Finally, I’ve uploaded a set of photos from the event to this set on Flickr. Take a look if you’re interested, and also check out the blogs above for more photos and details on the sessions.
Keep an eye out on this blog for details of our next event, which will be a hands-on OBIEE 11g Training Days event that’ll run on consecutive weeks in the UK and the USA, probably around October. Thanks again to everyone that made it down to Brighton, and hopefully we’ll see some of you again in either October or next May, for the BI Forum 2011.
