This article shows how to integrate OBIEE with Teradata Temporal Tables.  It details how to set up OBIEE for "as-is" and "as-was" type analysis.  It is a cook book style write-up and assumes the reader knows OBIEE (Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition) and assumes that the reader knows what they want to do with temporal.  It does not go into detailed analysis of different use cases for temporal tables.

Beyond the typical database functions Aster has advanced analytical functionality.  For instance, the Aster nPath function allows regular pattern matching over a sequence of rows. With it, you can find sequences of rows that match a pattern you’ve specified and easily extract information from these matched patterns using symbols that represent the matched rows in the pattern.

Oracle Essbase was first launched in 1992. Since then, many other OLAP tools have come and gone. Oracle Essbase has thrived and become a leading OLAP tool by continuously adding new features, adapting to new environments, and taking advantage of new technologies. Oracle Essbase XOLAP and Oracle Essbase Studio are examples of the latest improvements.

The OBIEE Sample Application is a fully functioning OBIEE environment available on a VM.  It is self-contained in that demo applications can be run against data stored on the VM.  It is possible to modify the VM so that external data can also be accessed and shown in a demo or used for testing.  This article shows how to modify the VM to access a Teradata database.  Almost any Teradata database version will work with OBIEE, but see the certification matrix for supported versions.
