Process for Designing a BI Application

This page presents the recommended process for designing an Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) application. If you are new to Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) technology and want to learn the best way to design BI applications, use the following process as a guide. If you are familiar with OBIEE technology or design patterns, you may skip any stage in the process and navigate directly to the desired section.

  Step 1  
Before designing a BI application or identifying a design pattern, you must determine who will use the application. This section helps you identify and develop a better understanding of your users.
  Step 2  
Once you determine who will use the application, it’s time to select an appropriate design pattern. This section describes how patterns are presented on this Web site and introduces the various tools that are available to help you identify the best pattern for your requirements.
  Step 3  
This section describes the structure of a typical pattern in order to give you a better sense of how to use the pattern. Each pattern has information in these categories: general pattern description, criteria for selecting the pattern, list of the OBIEE screen elements required for the pattern, visuals that illustrate the various ways to apply the pattern, and examples that illustrate the final outcomes of the applied pattern. All patterns presented on this Web site follow this structure.
  Step 4  
This final section presents the dashboard design best practices and technical guidelines written by the Oracle Business Intelligence Applications (OBIA) group. Application developers, product managers, customers, and consultants may use this material to create and customize OBIEE components.  |  About Oracle  |  Careers  |  Contact Us  |  Legal Notices  |  Terms of Use  |  Your Privacy Rights
