As Presented at Collaborate
Guest Speaker: Jeff Burtenshaw
BI Director, Boart Longyear
Learn how Boart Longyear went live with Oracle E-Business Suite while implementing Oracle BI (OBI EE), and still managed to provide users with operational and analytical BI right out of the gate.
Boart Longyear's Goals:
- Replace the legacy ERP application
- Move to the OBI EE platform
- Integrate with Hyperion
- Real-time reporting against the transaction system
- Historical trending and analysis against the data warehouse
A new ERP system forced the rewrite of all reports. They needed a full enterprise solution with reporting across multiple modules and multiple areas of the business. Custom development wasn't reasonable given the timeframe. As a manufacturer and service company, coverage for Discrete Manufacturing and Projects was critical.
Did we mention they did all this by cloning their Oracle EBS instance via Oracle On Demand?
