ERP upgrades are measured in years and in millions of dollars, so, it’s understandable that many companies still haven’t moved off their old E-Business Suite and Oracle Discoverer. There are some expensive options to replace Disco (DVCS, BICS, OBIEE, Tableau, Cognos) and some free options. With Oracle Database 12.2 we now have a free dimensional metadata solution that we can utilize to replace the Disco End User Layer. And with Oracle Application Express 5.2, you get access to the same data visualization components in those expensive BI offerings. Learn how in this practical session.
