BRIO Migration at The University of Pittsburgh - Scaling New Heights in BI
Feedback form is now closed.
The University of Pittsburgh's CFO Office faced the pending retirement of the Hyperion BRIO query tool and chose a path to migrate to Oracle's OBIEE platform that resulted in better query performance, a common data model with shared calculations, and greater user engagement in self-service analysis. This session will recap the timeline of events that helped to transition UPitt to a modern BI platform using OBIEE. We will address the challenges that are typically faced in migrating users from a product that they are comfortable with in order to provide a more robust reporting environment. A review of BRIO to OBIEE feature comparisons and data model enhancements will be covered.
