1 - About

Some sites use third-party analytical tools, such as spreadsheets and databases, which require connectivity to the Oracle BI Server (ie the BI Server becomes a data source)

The Oracle BI Open Intelligence Interface (ODBC and JDBC) client connectivity are a means of distributing client connectivity to these remote clients that cannot otherwise access Oracle BI.

Using the Oracle Business Intelligence installer, only the Open Intelligence Interface ODBC, JDBC connectivity client and the utilities NQClient.exe and NQCMD.exe are installed.

The installer includes a silent mode option to automatically install the Open Intelligence Interface ODBC client on the remote machine.
