BI Publisher

Over at the Oracle BI Publisher Blog we have some belated but very handy links from Collaborate: BI Publisher for PeopleSoft.

Also in the realm of BI is this posting from A Bi Publisher developer's diary on the sometimes arcane art of getting foreign fonts to function properly: Non-English characters appears as ???? in BI Publisher PDF output

Pete Finnigan posted a link to the Cervello Consultants site that is both scary and useful: The ignored evidence of data breaches …. It turns out 48 percent of the attacks on a survey of data breaches were inside jobs. Integrity is indeed a valuable resource.
