Yes I was following Venkat's and Rittmanmead's blogs but I didn't know you were also into Essbase, although I have been following your blog for sometime now. Thanks for refering. - I am wondering how much should I know about Essbase to intergrate it with OBIEE and import cubes and work with in OBIEE logical layers. Any insight would be helpful
It really depends on what you plan to do and which products in the stack you're going to use for what. If you intend to use Essbase as an aggregation layer to speed up you analysis, then you should look into learning more about fine-tuning your Essbase applications in terms of data loads, aggregation, optimizing calculations,...in terms of languages MDX and MaxL.
If you're looking to integrate applications like Workspace as well then you'll have to look at those as well.
Both areas are vast in terms of applications and functionalties so I'd suggest learning the basics and then deepening your know-how according to needs.
