  • Oracle BI 11G Upgrade FAQs

    1. Do I have to upgrade to Oracle BI 11g? Upgrades are never mandatory but Premier Support for Oracle BI 10g expired in 2013 and

    Extended Support will come to an end in July 2015. Additional support costs are required for Extended Support and there will be no further product enhancements when it expires in 2015.

    2. What dependencies do I need to consider for my upgrade?

    While the upgrade from OBI 10g to OBI 11g is underway you will still need to provide BI reports for the organization so you will need to ensure that you have enough hardware resources to run OBI 10g and implement OBI11gat the same time. Also, try to minimize the enhancements you make to 10g to reducethe time and risk involved in the upgrade.

    3. How long will it take to upgrade to Oracle BI 11g? The length of time for the upgrade depends on a number of factors but typically takes 3-4 months.

    Considerations include:

    a. The numberof reports and their complexity

    b. Security Significant differences between 10g and 11g security may mean additional time is required to ensure the right security levels for your organization

    c. Integration to OBIEE Simultaneous upgradesof OBI together with other integrated systems such as Oracle EBS will require more time.

    4. What new features and benefits can my users expect from the upgrade?a. Superior data integration

    b. Integrated BI publisher

    c. Improved data visualization

    d. Improved performance for faster decision-making

    e. Enhanced Security

  • 5. What do I need to do to prepare for an upgrade? Enhancements or additionalfeatures should only be added when the upgrade is complete. This

    keeps upgrade costsand time to a minimum. Its also important to prepare users for the upgrade. The look and feel is a little different so give users the opportunity to test their reports in the new environment.

    6. What Cost savings can I expect? Performance and functionality both improve and costs are reduced because the additional charges

    for Extended Support are eliminated.

    7. What kind of disruption should my users expect? Users should not notice any disruption associated with the upgrade. They will simply need some

    training on the new features and the new front end. They may also need time to thoroughly test their reports on the new version of OBI.
