Recommended BI Sessions at KScope 2015

Will be at KScope 2015 in just a few days and thought I would share a list of some of the most interesting sessions that I am going to try and attend.

First, I think all of my session will be awesome so here is that list, keep in mind I am basis:

BI Sunday Symposium

11:15 AM – 12:00 PM
Oracle BI Mobile Strategy and Roadmap

Oracle BI Mobile strategy spans consumption, authoring and full self-service data exploration use cases. Learn what’s new and what’s coming with demonstrations.

MAD About Mobile? Learn to Create BI Mobile Apps with BI Mobile App Designer

Monday, June 22, 2:00 – 3:00 PM

These days, being able to access data anywhere on any device is becoming more and more important, and there is a critical need to deliver analytics and BI data to your end users on their mobile devices. If mobile is a critical requirement for your organization, then this lab is for you! You will create a mobile app with no code and no need to call IT. We will work with the latest version of Mobile Application Designer to create an end-to-end mobile app.

This accelerated and fast-paced session will focus on the basics, and we will show you how to connect to a data source, create an application (including subpages, filters, drilling, and more), and deploy and test the application. Just bring your laptop and a mobile device of choice (tablet or phone).

MAD About Mobile? Code until You Are MAD! Custom Plugins and BI Mobile App Designer

Wednesday, June 24, 11:15 AM – 12:15 PM

Thinking about creating a highly custom mobile experience with your BI data for deployment on mobile devices? Interested in delivering custom visualizations that apply to only your specific data set? If yes, then this is the hands-on training for you.  

This accelerated and fast-paced lab will focus on the use and creation of custom BI Mobile App Designer plugins to be used in a BI Mobile App Designer app. We will demonstrate how to install and integrate existing custom plugins, and we will create a new custom plugins from scratch.  

Just bring your laptop with your favorite development environment, your knowledge of JavaScript and HTML, and a mobile device of choice (tablet or phone).

Smart View with OBIEE

When: Jun 23, 2015, Session 9, 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm

In this session, we will cover how to leverage the content you have created in OBI while using Microsoft Office as the front end. We will cover the creation of a mock “reporting deck” using PowerPoint and will demonstrate how to leverage great features in Excel and Smart View, allowing you to take full advantage of your BI data.


There are a bunch of other session in the BI track but here are some of the key ones that I am thinking about attending.

Innovations in Oracle Business Intelligence

When: Jun 21, 2015, BI Symposium 2, 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Oracle BI is undergoing a transformation to take the lead in Self-Service, Cloud, Embedded Analytics, and Mobile BI. Hear an overview of the key product innovations spanning BI technology and BI apps.

Business Intelligence Cloud Service with Visual Analyzer

Data Mash-Ups and Advanced Analytics: A Demonstration Using Planning Data

When: Jun 21, 2015, BI Symposium 5, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Oracle BI Platform has been extended to support user-provided data and user-defined analytic functions. Learn how Oracle BI Platform stores user data, including data from Planning, easily blends BI server data and lets users define advanced analytic functions without RPD modeling in this demo-led session.

Oracle BI Cloud Service: The Prequel to OBIEE 12c

When: Jun 22, 2015, Session 2, 9:45 am – 10:45 am

The Oracle BI Cloud Service (BICS) provides companies with a new way to use OBIEE to solve different types of Business Analytics problems, but it also gives Oracle a chance to gradually release new features into the OBIEE product line before they become part of a large on-premise release. OBIEE 12c is the next major release of OBIEE, but BICSe users can already begin exploring features of OBIEE 12c months before they arrive on-premise. In this session, we’ll look at the features of BICS that will eventually appear in OBIEE 12c and how these features may eventually impact on-premise OBIEE users.


Here are a few others that are not on topic for me but seem really interesting anyhow.

Smart Things All Around

When: Jun 23, 2015, Session 8, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Smart things are all around us thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), even at this very conference in the form of the Kscope 15 Scavenger Hunt. Come learn how Oracle Applications User Experience sees the future and how they execute that vision using Oracle technologies. Meet the mad scientists behind the Scavenger Hunt, learn how they built it, and discuss what makes IoT tick.
