Oracle BI Multi-user Development: MDS XML Versus MUD
Stewart Bryson, Rittman Mead

The release of OBIEE provides the ability to develop an Oracle BI repository as a collection of XML documents instead of a single binary RPD file. Included in this functionality is the ability to configure the OBIEE Admin Tool to interact with third-party Source Control Management (SCM) systems as a way of version-controlling the repository development process. This presentation will explore MDS XML functionality in the OBIEE Admin Tool, including how to generate the MDS XML files from an existing RPD file and configure the repository to work with Git as a sample SCM system. The session will also explore how this new feature extends the capabilities of multi-user development for Oracle BI repositories, and how it compares to other pre-existing development options.
