The UTOUG BI Community's focus is to bring those who are interested and/or involved with business intelligence and data warehousing together to talk about analytical and data warehousing topics and issues. This group succeeds through the help of its members who share their experiences with others.

The BI Community is not OBIEE focused; we are vendor neutral and realize that different products all have advantages and disadvantages.
