The art of writing superb analyses and building popular interactive dashboards is not something that we see much of in the OBIEE blogsphere. Sure we have to build fast databases, and configure the servers, but what the customer sees is the dashboard.
I will look a bit harder this week for front end tips, so please get yours published on the groups, blogs and tweets.
I am actually trying to hire a couple of dedicated dashboard developers, so please take a look at the jobs page to see if you are what I am looking for.

Praveen says, “Unfortunately, OBIEE doesn’t have a sort Control on the Grand Total and, creating a column with a total doesn’t get me what I have required. It has ends up being another metric in the pivot.”
