Pentaho Reporting by ExampleMariano Garcia and Dario Bernabeu recently announced on his blog of Dataprix the publication of his new book 'Pentaho Reporting 5.0 by Example: Beginner's Guide'.
 

Knowing both authors and their previous work, we are confident on the utility of that book for anyone who wants to work with Pentaho Report Designer, but we'd rather interview them to explain it themselves..

 

Which brings Oracle Business Intelligence 11g

Last week I attended a Web Seminar Oracle that presented the new features of Oracle Business Intelligence 11g.

The truth is that I was pleasantly surprised, because these improvements solved what I considered so far the main weaknesses of the Oracle BI Suites .

Most significant to me is the integration efforts made in the portal since it can use most of the tools of the suite, and thus reduce the feeling of working with different products. For instance, you can create operational BI Publisher reports from the same portal, and has created an integrated scorecarding tool that allows you to define KPI's, and 'react' with Agents and Actions, another pending issue of the suite. The part of administración system has also been integrated into Enterprise Manager.

Other improvements are those which have been introduced in the creation and display Dashboard, the possibility of using interactive maps, and above all the possibility of using also Answers MOLAP data sources such as Essbase cubes, which enables integration Hyperion, greatly improves the analytic reporting and enables dynamic navigation for multi-dimensional hierarchies, and other features in the reports.
