Oracle OBIEE Review
We can create ad hoc analyses and present data with Dashboards, Alerts, and BI Publisher.


Valuable Features:

Dashboards, Alerts, BI Publisher. Together these 3 features make this product a great tool to present data. Users can also create ad hoc analyses easily. Integrates very well with a wide variety of data sources making it easy to present data from multiple sources in a single place.

Improvements to My Organization:

One stop shop for all reporting, data integrity, and compliance with company standards.

Room for Improvement:

Performance for large data sets.

Use of Solution:

12 years

Deployment Issues:

Setting up SSL can be complex. Documentation is confusing. But other sources of information such as blogs really help.

Scalability Issues:

Sometimes when lots of users get in and try to run the same report at the same time with different parameters.

Customer Service:

Prompt but not always helpful. 

Technical Support:

Poor

Initial Setup:

Depends on the requirements and infrastructure, but proper planning makes it pretty straightforward.

Implementation Team:

In-house

Cost and Licensing Advice:

Being rollover customers from a previously owned company there was confusion about licensing. Talking to an Oracle rep helped. 

Other Advice:

Excellent BI tool that is flexible and user-friendly, and getting better with each new release. 

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

In our organization we were recommended by Oracle Support to implement Vertical Scaling for OBIEE to resolve a similar issue.
The scalability issue you reported should be solved by vertical scaling since it involves creating multiple instances of the BI server component.
Then different users accessing the same report are diverted to the other BI process (round robin) which should lessen the load for this report.

I have worked & implemented on OBIEE, great product, I hope the BICS will also have the entire feature spectrum OBIEE has in the near future. compared to other competitive products this has much better features. cost is high & the support and coverage is poor.
