BI Consulting Group has developed what is recognized as the most complete, most comprehensive set of dashboard and report design “best practice” standards ever developed, specific to Oracle Business Intelligence (formerly Siebel Business Analytics). These best practices have not been created simply to provide a “standard”, instead they are based on the most important litmus test – what standards actually cause dashboards to be used, and what “best practices” of dashboard and report development provide insight into the business, rather than just reports. This guide was started with the Siebel Analytics 7.8.x platform, before Oracle acquired Siebel. The current version of the guide reflects Oracle’s 10.1.3.3.x releases of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE). Expect this guide to be enhanced and revised with subsequent major releases of OBIEE.
