Oracle OBIEE Review

Reasonably-priced and straightforward to deploy

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use is as an enterprise reporting solution.

How has it helped my organization?

The ability to do cross-applications reporting.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the logical datawarehouse (business model) and distribution.

What needs improvement?

Migration on premisses should be easier (but is easier if you migrate to the cloud).

More self-services should be available for the users.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Oracle OBIEE for more than ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It was a little bit tedious to install a new release.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not had any trouble with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would rate the technical support a seven out of ten. Not all of the support people are as performant with respect to the issues that we've encountered.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?


How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was not really complex. Our deployment tooks approximately six months.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This was not an expensive product for us, although the price varies depending on conditions for each company.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Business Objects and SAS.

What other advice do I have?

We plan on transitioning to the cloud version and I recommend the same for other people. It is the same as Oracle OBIEE but named Oracle Analytics Cloud.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?


Which version of this solution are you currently using?
