          Please be more specific with your question. What kind of information are you looking for with regards to OBIEE and the FDM?

          On the highest abstraction level FDM is just a tool for moving and transforming data. So the question is not necessarily "how can I get OBIEE and FDM to work together?" but rather "how do I get OBIEE to use my data source?". So basically a cube.

          Long story short: be more specific and we'll be able to help.

            Thanks Berg.....

            I read certain links on FDM and understood what actually could be done through FDM..........

            Short but as you say....Experts can always get it better.....and you still got me on the right track.I was just asking that cause I could everywhere find the term FDM linked to Hyperion....and if at all it meant that I need to install Hyperion components to get FDM Install/work.......

            Thanks for the reply.....

              Easiest is always to start with the base documentation to get a first glimpse:

              http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E12825_01/epm.111/fdm_admin_help/frameset.htm?ch01.html

              The BI portfolio is quite extensive these days, but each day there's more information available out there. Both from Oracle and the different blogs. The distinction between Oracle, ex-Siebel and Hyperion components is still quite visible in most cases but, I see how it can be confusing.
