I thought I’d post my presentation on QA (testing) that I delivered this week at the BIWA Summit near Oracle HQ in California. The preso is based off of the recent QA posts I did, with a bit more silly graphics on top of it. The one take away from the preso is that some people prefer the term testing as opposed to QA. Good to know. Anyway, enjoy!
BTW, the event focused heavily on the future of BI and Data Warehousing. Essentially, whatever we are doing now is going to radically change to include many new types of data from different places and sources, plus what kinds of analysis we do will also be greatly enhanced. OBI is layering on top of a whole plethora of Oracle’s Analytical technologies, including: Essbase, EPM, HCM, OLAP, RTD, Endeca and R. The OBI server or UI will have hooks into just about everything you can think of, making some advanced capabilities available to dashboard users. We’ll see how it actually plays out, but in the future some pretty heavy stuff will be available in the dashboard.
