2 Introduction to Oracle Communications Data Model Installation

This chapter describes how to install Oracle Communications Data Model and other components you use to create an Oracle Communications Data Model data warehouse:

Types of Installations Provided for Oracle Communications Data Model

Using the Oracle Universal Installer you can perform two types of Oracle Communications Data Model installation:

  • Installation of the Oracle Communications Data Model component. You must install this component to create an Oracle Communications Data Model data warehouse.

  • Installation of reports and schemas that you can use for ideas about how to design your own reports. Installing the reports is optional.

Different items are installed depending on whether you install the database objects, or the reports and schemas.

Note:

Use the separate Add-ons installer to install Oracle Communications Data Model Add-ons:
  • Oracle Communications BRM Adapter

  • Oracle Communications NCC Adapter

  • Oracle Communications Social Network Analytics

  • Oracle Communications Billing Analytics

For more information on Add-ons, see Oracle Communications Data Model Adapters and Analytics Installation Guide.

Communications Data Model Installation

When you perform a Communications Data Model installation of Oracle Communications Data Model, the Oracle Universal Installer installs the Oracle Communications Data Model component without data. Specifically, the installer creates the following schema in the target database:

  • ocdm_sys which is the main schema for Oracle Communications Data Model. This schema contains all the relational and OLAP components of Oracle Communications Data Model, including the Oracle Communications Data Model data mining tables. This schema also contains all the mining components of Oracle Communications Data Model.

See:

For detailed information about all created objects in the ocdm_sys schema, see the Oracle Communications Data Model Reference.

There is no data in this schema. You need to populate data into the schema.

Sample Reports Installation

When you perform a Sample Reports installation of the Oracle Communications Data Model, the installer creates the Oracle Communications Data Model sample schema in the target database. Specifically, the installer installs:

  • The following files that provide the data for the reports:

    • ocdm_sample.dmp.zip which is a dump file of the schemas that contain the sample data for the relational and data mining components of Oracle Communications Data Model.

      Tip:

      The default user name for the schema is ocdm_sample.
    • ocdm_sample.eif which is a dump file containing sample data for the Oracle Communications Data Model analytic workspace (that is, the OLAP cubes).

  • The following files that define and create the sample reports:

    • ocdm.rpd

    • ocdmwebcat.zip

Oracle Communications Data Model Home Directory Structure

The installation image contains the following directories under ORACLE_HOME/ocdm:

  • adons: when you install Add-ons, this directory contains the files required for the selected optional adapters or analytics subproducts.

  • report: which contains the sample report files for Oracle Communications Data Model installation.

  • utl: which contains metadata and TM Forum KPI information.

  • pdm: which contains the physical schema dump, creation scripts, and lookup value population in subdirectories:

Subdirectory Description
relational Relational schema installation scripts and relational related files
relational/calendar Calendar data population package
relational/ddl Relational schema installation scripts
relational/flexible_hierarchy Flexible hierarchy scripts
relational/intra_etl Intra-ETL and related files
relational/lookup_value Lookup data population script
relational/sample_schema Physical sample schema
mining Data mining scripts and related files
olap OLAP scripts and related files

Overview of the Installation Process

Installation of Oracle Communications Data Model requires the following tasks:

  1. Read Oracle Communications Data Model Release Notes to identify any last minute changes.

  2. Verify that your system is one of the supported platforms and that it satisfies the hardware and software requirements as described in Chapter 1, "Hardware and Software Requirements."

  3. Identify and perform any necessary preinstallation tasks, as described in "Preinstallation Tasks".

  4. Install the Oracle Communications Data Model component or the Oracle Communications Data Model reports as described in "Installer Execution".

    Tip:

    You can also perform a silent installation, see "Silent Installation" for more information.
  5. Identify and perform any necessary postinstallation tasks, as described in "Postinstallation Tasks".

  6. Install the additional components that you need to create an Oracle Communications Data Model data warehouse or run the reports, as described in Chapter 4, "Installation of Additional Components."

Note 1:

To deinstall Oracle Communications Data Model, you do not simply run the Oracle Universal Installer in deinstall mode. To deinstall Oracle Communications Data Model, follow the directions in Chapter 5, "Backup, Recovery, and Deinstallation of Oracle Communications Data Model."

Note 2:
