KScope12 session highlight No. 2

Introduction

Ah, Oracle Data Integrator.  From the first time I opened up your nearly incomprehensible documentation (much better today, oh, you should have seen it with “SUNOPSIS” sprinkled all over it and nary a mention of Essbase, Planning, or HFM to be found) I knew you were special.  Powerful, obscure, chock full of technologies I had (and still have) almost no idea about, and with really unhelpful error messages.  How could I not love it?  And I do, although it sometimes drives me almost to tears of frustration.  When I get it (whatever “it” is) working, I want to dance a reel.  That is pretty sad, isn’t it?  No matter.  Excelsior!

ODTUG’s KScope is here to help you dance

I’m not the only one who has seen the power and possibility of ODI.  Kscope12 has 10 presentations on the subject including one from yr. obdnt. srvnt. and if you have any interest (and if you don’t, you should) in this powerful and exciting tool, I strongly suggest you make time in your convention schedule to attend a few of the sessions.

Here’s a list of the ODI sessions that I consider important:
