Get your hands on OBIEE 11.1.1.5 and OBIA 7.9.6.3

Finally OBIEE 11g (11.1.1.5) and BI apps 7.9.6.3 can be downloaded now!
I created an easy to remember url http://bit.ly/OBIEE11115       ...just remember bit.ly and 11 1 1 5

I noticed that this OBIEE 11g release is supported on Win 32/64, Linus 32/64 and Solaris 64... It will be supported on AIX soon. Have stopped speculating on HP's OS...


The BI Apps 7.9.6.3 is certified with OBIEE 11g and looks for OBIEE 11g installation folders....as shown above... earlier in this step the BI apps installer would look for OBIE 10g folders.

7.9.6.3 now supports EBS R12.1.3   (7962 only supported R12.1.2 even though it came out just after the R12.1.3 release. However, I have not seen any issues of 7.9.6.2 work with EBS R12.1.3. In my scenario it worked for HR, Fin, SCM and Procurement Analytics. I noted now Oracle has updated release notes to say that 7.9.6.2 supports R12.1.3 now... in other words now they have completed their certification.

It is good to see that 11.5.10 is still supported in this release and allows folks to stay on same ERP release while leveraging OBIEE 11g... some of the companies I know are awaiting to see the Fusion Apps catch on before they decide when to upgrade from EBS 11.5.10.

OBIA 7.9.6.3 supports Informatica 8.6.1 with Hot fix 11 and has Planned Certification for Informatica
PowerCenter 9.0.1 HF2.
