    In this first-ever playlist compilation from DJ Harms, we’re gonna kick it old-school. We’re paying homage to that godfather of OBIEE hip-hop: everyone’s favorite metadata thumpin’, ever-present, and seemingly-never-changing   three-paned, Windows-only(!?) program client that you have to read from right to left! The OBIEE REPOSITORY, otherwise known simply among its friends by its shortened moniker: "The RPD.” Let’s bounce to the tunes of this venerable BI legend.
