Helpfully, the book starts by telling that you need no previous experience with Oracle Business Intelligence 11g. It descends from BI 10g and Siebel Analytics. But much of the GUI was rewritten compared to 10g, so the authors suggest that BI 11g will feel quite different to those acquainted with 10g.The book also tries to plug together packages from many acquisitions made by Oracle in recent years. The term Fusion Middleware is a means to group many of those packages into a systematic overall offering, that is easier for users to understand. Interestingly, Oracle currently only supports its WebLogic server as the application server for all this. It has not made a move to using IBM's WebSphere as an alternative server. Though in time this may change.The text provides a concise summation of the numerous packages with the BI Domain. And readers who are programmers may be interested to know that Oracle has effectively standardised on 2 languages - C++ and Java. (It of course owns Java, after its purchase of Sun.)The installation is complex enough that several chapters are devoted to it. Which gives you a good idea of how involved the rest of the text will be. Typically these days, a book about a software product just has a short chapter near the start about installation, and the chapter is often a trivial read since the install will be mostly by defaults. In the current book, there is much more to understand and tweak, if you are so inclined.The intricacy of the install can be extended to the observation that another chapter is just about upgrading from 10g of the Web Catalog (and of another product) to 11g.Of the remainder of the text, you have a choice of topics. Perhaps not all will be needed by each reader.

Over the last few days I enjoyed the privilege of reading the first book of Haroun Khan, Christian Screen and Adrian Ward on OBIEE 11g, titled "Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g: A Hands-On Tutorial".For those working in the OBIEE 11g realm with little time to read lengthy book reviews: Get this book!For those who love lengthy book reviews, please read on.Overall, the book is a very good read. The authors use a concise yet casual and entertaining language. The title holds true: the book is really hands-on, valuable information is found in abundance in each and every chapter along with pointers to the documentation and supporting web sites. Here is a quick summary chapter by chapter:Chapter 1, Architecture, introduces the role of the WebLogic server and provides good explanations of all related system components and Java components that make up OBIEE 11g.Chapter 2, Metadata Repository is a great overview of the metadata repository and describes in detail the process of installing the same using the Repository Creation Utility (RCU).Chapter 3 is a precise, no-nonsense walkthrough of the installation process on Microsoft Windows.Chapter 4 discusses installation options. It includes much appreciated information on creating high-availability and failover secure environments as well as web tier (HTTP server) installation and configuration. The chapter also covers start-up and shutdown scripts which every admin loves.Chapter 5, System Management Tools deals with the WLS Console, going into great detail on the intricacies of the WL domain, security realms and EM, focusing of course on the coreapplication application.
