Once sensitive columns are identified and finalized, we proceed with masking.

DataTerrain, a leader in Business Intelligence reports conversion automation solutions, announced the launch of its “BI DesignerPlus” for customers who are looking to create more complex reports with ease in OBIEE. If you have been user of Hyperion BRIO / SQR / IR reporting for years you can see why ?

Brio Interactive Reporting (IR) has many popular and highly appreciated features, like CUME. While Oracle provided extended support till April 2018, the end of Brio IR’s / SQR code development and support life creates a need for supporting customers in newer products (OBIEE 11g or 12C ) with familiar features from the Hyperion world.

The simple and user-friendly icons save enormous time and provide comfort for report developers to deliver complex reports in the new OBIEE reporting. BI DesignerPlus is a new plugin which works as an extension for Oracle OBIEE that bridges gaps from the Hyperion BRIO to newer OBIEE 11g or 12C.

The number one benefit of using the BI DesignerPlus is that complex OBIEE reports can be created with minimal XML coding knowledge, which saves significant time and costs in expert skills.

  • Suppression of Duplicates in Table
  • Distinct Count data aggregation for chart
  • Running Sum function

BI DesignerPlus brings in the best features of the report authoring tools as extension to Oracle OBIEE 11g / 12C.
