Yes my friends the much awaited OBIEE 12c is officially available for download.
Download link is as follows
The new features are listed below
- Easy to upgrade: BI 12c offers a radically simple
and robust upgrade from 11g, saving customers time and effort in moving
to the new version. BI 12c includes a free utility to automate
regression testing, the Baseline Validation Tool, which verifies data,
visuals, catalog object metadata, and system-generated SQL across 11g
and 12c releases.
- Faster: Sophisticated in-memory processing
includes BI Server optimizations and support for multiple in-memory data
stores, while in-memory Essbase on Exalytics offers enhanced
concurrency and scalability, as well as significant performance gains.
- Friendlier: Usability updates throughout BI 12c
demonstrate Oracle’s continued commitment to making analytics as fast,
flexible, and friendly as they are powerful and robust. A new user
interface simplifies the layout for the homepage, Answers, and
Dashboards, making it easier for users to quickly see what’s important;
HTML-5 graphics improve view rendering; and it’s easier for users to
create new groups, calculations, and measures, for simpler, more direct
interaction with results.
- More Visual: A consistent set of Data
Visualization capabilities are now available across Oracle BI Cloud
Service and Oracle BI 12c, as well as the upcoming Oracle Data
Visualization Cloud Service, offering customers a continuity of visual
experience unmatched by our competitors. Business users can point and
click to upload personal data and blend it with IT-managed data in BI
12c, which automatically infers connections between data sets.
Visualizing data is as easy as dragging attributes onto the screen, with
optimal visualizations automatically displayed – no modeling or upfront
configuration required. Related data is automatically connected, so
highlighting data in one visual highlights correlated data in every
other visual, immediately showing patterns and revealing new insights.
These insights, along with narrative comments, can be shared as
interactive visual stories, enabling seamless collaboration that drives
- More Advanced: Predictive analysis is more tightly
integrated, enabling customers to more easily forecast future
conditions based on existing data points, group elements that are
statistically similar, and expose outliers. BI 12c includes the ability
to run the free Oracle R distribution on BI Server, and extend existing
analytics with custom R scripts, which can point to any engine (R,
Oracle Database, Spark, etc.) without needing to change the BI RPD to
- More Mobile: Keyword search (“BI Ask”) empowers
users to literally talk to their data, asking questions and having
visualizations automatically created as responses, opening up an easy
entry point for authoring. Additionally, the interface for iOS has been
completely redesigned; and Mobile BI for Android offers sharing and
following for nearby devices, as well as the ability to project any
dashboard or story to GoogleCast-enabled devices.
- Bigger Data: BI 12c enables customers to use new
data, from local, Oracle, and Big Data sources, including personal files
uploaded by users; direct access to data in Hyperion Financial
Management and Hyperion Planning applications; and ODBC access to
Cloudera Impala. Apache Spark will be accessible via native Spark SQL
in an upcoming update.
- Higher ROI, Lower TCO: Streamlined administration
and life cycle management reduce the time and resources required to
manage BI 12c, decreasing costs and increasing value for this and future
releases. Enhancements include separating metadata from configuration;
simpler, more robust security; easier backup, restore, and disaster
recovery; hot patching of metadata; and many more.
