So, to much excitement, the first GA release of OBIEE 11g is finally available for the public to download. You can download it as Friday August13, 2010 from the OTN OBIEE Page. There is a lot to say for this release and our good friends at BI Consulting Group and Rittman-Mead have already begun blogging on the topic and setting up webinars to relay some great information to the masses about this much anticipated release.

I am quite certain that Oracle pushed this GA release out the door just in time for OOW which is next month in San Francisco, CA. Nevertheless, OBI 11g is finally here, so its time to get crackin’ on some new material. If you haven’t already signed up, I’ll be part of a panel conducting a webinar with BI Consulting Group (OBI11g, What’s in it for Me?) on August 31st, 2010. You can sign up for that event if you haven’t already. The webinar should be very informative for a first look at OBI 11gR1.

Ultimately the goal of commentary in OBIEE is to have a system for persisting feedback, creating a call to action, and recognizing the prolific users.
