Buzz Words and Questions around OBIEE 11g and OBIEE 10g

Filed under: OBIEE Buzzwords — Tags: — harikv @ 8:32 pm

How frequently do you use these concepts and terminology is of less importance in the OBIEE interview stage as they cannot make you take a practical test on your OBIEE (Here are some exceptions.. I recently had one interview where I have to take a practical test of building a dashboard with two answer requests and a dashboard prompt for proving my OBIEE skills)

Some of the questions that were popped up to me

How do you set the logging level to a group of users?

Why did you set the Administrator logging level to 3 or 7 compared to 2 or 1?

Does OBIEE 10g support multiple rpds at the same time? What type of architectures support this ?

Why was Weblogic introduced as a layer in OBIEE 11g? Scalability, performance advantages gained out of it?

How easy is it to support multiple rpds at the same time in 11g? Is there a simple migration path from 10g to 11g if we are hosting multiple rpds already in 10g?

What type of integrations have been done in your environment between OBI Applications in OBIEE 10g platform and custom data warehouse and reports in OBIEE 11g platform? What do you think about these kind of integrations?

Do you think the security architecture in OBIEE suit enterprise environments? What components involve the OBIEE security architecture?

How easy is it to understand the logic behind converting logical sql into physical sql in OBIEE? Have you developed any tools that convert the OBIEE generated ANSI physical sql to DB specific sql?

Yes… I just clicked my restart blogging button. Until next time, keep building new actionable intelligent BI processes šŸ™‚

  1. I am all for practical tests in an interview. Obviously a good telephone interview should weed out the bluffers, but I have been fooled in the past so thoroughly recommend a real life test.
