It has been 19 months since the GA of OBIEE
11g and its third incarnation ( is celebrating its one-month-birthday
today. Time to make a point on the support situation for all OBIEE 10g
implementations out there:
The last 10gR3 versions ( will
reach the end of the Permier Support lifecycle in 4 months, July 2012.
The full documentation for lifetime support
of Fusion Middleware products can be found here, on the Oracle website
(last updated February 2012). The screenshot above can be found on page
13 of the pdf.
So to wrap up: the product has had more than
one and a half years to mature, Oracle provided us with two new version
since the release and with the end of premier support quickly coming up,
this is really the moment to start thinking about upgrading your 10g solutions!

Hi guys,

Just quickly to let you all know. I’m not cutting you out of the loop by not writing on the details, but if I’d have to document all tests I run and all issues I find, I will still be here next month.

Bottom line:
– watch out for with 734908
– watch out for with 844119
– watch out for

With those three versions be VERY careful that you test each and every report you have running against Essbase.

I will update you as soon as I can with a finalized overview. Probably only once Oracle has come back…

I vote for naming his next yacht “Ra”…or even cooler. “Sol Invictus” ;-))
