You will see how Excel’s rich data selection, multi-dimensional display, hierarchical navigation, and data visualization features and integration with other Microsoft Office applications make Excel on Oracle a preferred business intelligence solution. DBAs will learn that this solution is easy to deploy and cost-effective. If your organization uses Excel and needs to query data within an Oracle-platform-based data warehouse, this is a must-attend session.
