OraE1111:B-SSC Oracle Essbase 11.1.1: Bootcamp - Self-Study Course

Oracle Course Description:
In this course, you learn the principal techniques and theories for the design of block storage databases. You create a database outline, load data into the database, analyze data with Smart View. You also create calculation scripts (to calculate data for different scenarios) and perform advanced analysis on the database by implementing varying attribute dimensions and typed measures. Design discussions and hands-on activities help you practice the skills taught.
