    ODTUG Renames the BI Community, Now the Analytics Community
We are excited to announce the transformation of the BI Community, which will now be the Analytics Community. We want to create a more dynamic and inclusive community to better serve the needs of ODTUG members. What does this change mean? It means we encompass more than just BI. It means if you are interested in any of the tools that are used to analyze data and turn it into information, we are here for you! Have a question? Want to share knowledge you gained from a project? Connect with other like-minded analysts who explore data in myriad ways, both on premises and in the cloud. Join the Analytics Community to share your passion for all things analytics, whether you are using OAC, OBIEE, ML/AI, R, Python, Essbase, DV, Big Data, Data Warehousing, or other platforms.
