Blogging can sometimes be so hard on anyone especially when you try to write articles on a daily basis. Thats one of the reasons why i took a 2 month sabbatical from anything and everything related to this blog. I had even stopped responding to forum questions (internal as well as external). Apologies to anyone who might be waiting for response from my end. I would slowly be coming back to normalcy. The last two months have been pretty interesting(and hard as well) where i have been leading a project on BI EE, Hyperion Essbase, Hyperion BI +( now under BI EE Plus bundle) and some apps components like OAF. The project is now more or less complete. Though i cannot reveal any details about the project, the project experience has been pretty good. Now coming back to this blog, I am planning to expand this blog even further. I am planning to cover the entire breadth of Oracle BI from a Technology standpoint and also from an Applications standpoint. Also, all your questions under the “Your Questions” tab would be answered. I have a plan in place and its just a matter of putting that into action(which is the toughest part). I am planning to create some indepth consulting materials that consultants (who use oracle BI) can use in their day to day implementations. These articles would cover configurations like SSO, SSL on the entire EPM/BI stack of Oracle. The materials would also cover the new integration between the components. By October, i would be in a position to roll out all these articles in this blog here. As always, these articles are meant only for guidance. And yes, it would not be good on my part if i do not say “A Big Thanks” to everyone who enquired about my health (in this 2 month sabbatical). I am perfectly fine and i appreciate all your concerns. Hoping to start blogging again in October.
