How UK Public Sector Used FDMEE and ODI to Get the Most out of Its Investment
Ray Fevrier, Edgewater Ranzal; Mike Casey, Oracle Corporation

With so many integration products available (ODI, FDMEE, DRM, and Essbase Studio, to name a few), if you are a client or Solution Architect considering a new project, deciding how to position these products may seem like a daunting task. Oracle wants FDMEE to be the tool of choice; however, FDMEE can’t always do the work alone. While new and exciting features were added to FDMEE, there will be circumstances where you have to use a combination of tools to get the job done. 

In this session, I will:

  • Provide users with FDMEE product update (by Mike Casey, Oracle Product Management)
  • Go over the options, some key product functionalities, and best practices
  • Touch on the Restricted Use License (RUL) of ODI that is installed with FDMEE
  • Through a real-world case study, demonstrate how a council in the UK is using FDMEE and ODI to load Planning Smart Lists
