Oracle open world (OOW) is great opportunity catch up on new database and database tools technologies. Yesterday, my highlight was seeing an in-depth presentation of Oracle BI Publisher 11g. I was blown away by the clean and remarkably advanced browser based user interface. The ability to define pixel perfect reports both for online viewing and PDF combining data from multiple queries was very impressive. When you view a BI publisher report online, its not just a static report with beautiful charts, end users can filter and drill down and interact with the report output with outstanding performance. Oracle BI publisher is a great complement to Oracle APEX, in that it can build any report you want, and like APEX it's 100% browser based; and yes it works on the iPad as well.
