Who doesn’t love traditions? While I am not the most nostalgic guy, I certainly have a handful of traditions that I hold dear. I think as we blaze bravely ahead, it’s important to remember where we come from, both good and bad to influence a better future. Sure, we all have traditions on a personal […]

My last few blog posts have discussed how data failure happens, and how we can change failure into success (with a little economic thinking). Continuing with that train of thought, in this post I’ll be discussing how we can better implement analytic solutions by challenging the convention of requirements gathering. Don’t “Gather Requirements”. Hunt for […]

In my last blog post, I discussed how I think that the way most people talk about BI and analytics is incorrect, how data is fluid, and some of the biggest issues I see when helping clients. I’m going to continue that discussion in this blog post, but pivot the conversation from what is wrong […]

That title sounds a little weird, tunnels go through the ground and clouds are those fluffy things that float in the sky. However when we are talking about Oracle Cloud and SSH tunneling things make a lot more sense. Although this blog is specific to the Oracle Cloud Database, tunneling is a generic technique and […]

For anyone unaware, StreamSets Data Collector is, in their own words, a low-latency ingest infrastructure tool that lets […]

Red Pill Analytics recently performed the installation of OBIEE 12c on an Exalytics machine for one of our customers. There is no option to use the Domain Management Utility for installing OBIEE 12c… that’s still only capable of installing OBIEE 11g. Therefore OBIEE 12c is a manual install on Exalytics, but it’s very similar to installing OBIEE […]

GaOUG Tech Days is just around the corner: May 9-10 to be exact. We have an incredible venue in Downtown Atlanta called the Loudermilk Center with exceptional event space throughout. We have a great collection of national speakers from the Oracle Community, so the locals in Atlanta can get a feel for larger, more national conferences […]

Let’s pretend that you need to change ports within your OBIEE 12c instance due to new applications that natively install into ports that OBIEE is running. Or maybe you want to have the ports be the same as the OBIEE 11g ports. Whatever the reason, how do we go about changing the ports within the […]

Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) is generally available (GA) today, and I’m excited to be included in this OAC blog hop welcome wagon. So I’m slumming it with a bunch of Essbase professionals, as you can see from the list of contributing authors below. It’s fascinating to see just how stoked the Essbase community is for […]
