You must configure your data sources to work with Oracle Business Intelligence. This process is part of the Roadmap for Configuring Oracle BI Infrastructure Components.
After the Oracle Business Intelligence installer is finished with the installation, there are a number of additional tasks you must complete in order to properly configure Oracle BI Server components. The number of postinstallation data source configuration tasks you must complete depends on the following factors:

- The complexity of your network setup
- Whether or not your deployment is localized
