Oracle Endeca Review
It’s got a good range of data visualisation components, but lacks the support for runtime complex query firing and support which OBIEE supports.


Valuable Features:

Primarily, a BI tool that enables analysis of unstructured and semi-structured data, as well as more traditional structured (measures, dimensions etc) data sets with ability to bring together loosely-related datasets and analyse them using search and lexical analysis tools. The in-memory key-value store database it uses doesn’t have the same costs around data manipulation, table joins and disk access that traditional databases have, and the column-based storage it uses is particularly suited to selecting from sets of dimension members.

Room for Improvement:

It’s got a good range of data visualisation components, and a web-based dashboard that appears to do a similar job to OBIEE’s interactive dashboard but lacks the support for runtime complex query firing and support which obiee provides through essbase engine.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

I have worked on both and features vise Endeca is not there for sure wrt OBI but pluggability, look and feel if considered, it is far better and we surely want the best of both worlds :)
