Steps to Deploy an RPD in BICS

The RPD deployment process in BICS is different from that of a on-premise OBIEE environment. In the BICS you do not have a separate service to deploy the RPD, instead you have an option within the BICS URL to upload the RPD • Click the console icon from the BICS URL • Click the icon “Snapshots and Models” from the list of options. This will navigate to the snapshot system state page • From the available options, choose “Replace Data Model” and from the file chooser menu, select the RPD file to be uploaded to the BICS • Provide the RPD password and click OK to upload the RPD. This process might take a few minutes and after a successful RPD upload, you will see a message “Data Model was successfully replaced with [repository file name]” • The RPD upload to the BICS does not require any server downtime and the users might have to use the refresh metadata option to have the latest RPD in their active session DataTerrain with years of experience and reliable experts is ready to assist. We have served more than 200 plus customers in the US and an additional 60 plus customers worldwide. We […]

Converting Hyperion IR/Brio to OBIEE 12c Easy and Economical

DataTerrain’s automated solution for converting from Hyperion IR/Brio to OBIEE 12c easy and economical Ever since Oracle announced the end of its Premium support for Hyperion Interactive Reporting in April 2015, more and more customers have been migrating to Oracle BI Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) 12c. It’s easy to see why. OBIEE offers all the agility of Hyperion, plus several significant advantages. Where Hyperion was restricted to creating single models to address a single report, OBIEE works with multiple data sources and is architecturally designed for enterprise-level reporting. Hyperion IR/Brio couldn’t match the requirements of an enterprise reporting tool, because each Hyperion IR report has a unique data module and was unable to share secure data caching between users. But with OBIEE, there’s no more “siloed” reporting–users can create highly interactive dashboards and reports, which can then be shared and reused across an organization, with role-based security controls. The repository layer (or RPD) in OBIEE enables to connect to multiple data sources, define physical and logical models, define hierarchies and roles/group. Among the major advantages that OBIEE offers are: • Comprehensive BI functionality – Full ad-hoc queries and analysis and includes interactive dashboards. • Separate data logic and, layout – which […]
