I have been working with some of the Oracle Domain Group on the hands-on labs for Kaleidoscope and have some good news to report. We have lined up Mike Nader, a good friend for many years now, to teach many of the labs on Essbase Studio. Some of you may remember Mike from his days as the Hyperion Product Manager for Smart View. The labs will be based on content from a program called Dare to OLAP which was created to teach Oracle partners about the new features of Essbase 11.
The labs will have 25 laptops setup to run each session with two people sharing a laptop for each lab. If you are interested in doing the hands-on labs, make sure you sign-up early for them; the key Essbase Studio labs will, however, be available twice.
Further, I have been working with my Oracle contacts to make the Dare to OLAP materials available on the Oracle Technology Network website and recently got approval for it to be posted there. We are working out the details of where it will presented, etc. We are also working on ways to make it easier for people who don't have Essbase 11.1.1 installed to try out the new version. How many people are interested in the Dare to OLAP materials?
