Oracle OBIEE Review
It has allowed us to provide our external users the ability to create custom reports while adding a complex object security framework not found when dealing with internal users.


Valuable Features

It provides our customers the ability to build simple or complex reports effortlessly. The existence of the Business Model and Mapping (BMM) layer is critical in providing numerous ways to model our data to fit a given project/set of requirements.

Improvements to My Organization

It has allowed us to provide our external users the ability to create custom reports while adding a complex object security framework not found when dealing with internal users.

Cross-dimensional reporting was a must and although this tool does not easily implement this, it still allowed us to model our data as necessary in order to deliver this requirement.

Room for Improvement

The UI needs to be updated. We had some people reference it as “1995” in ways of looks. The application itself does not work well with cross-dimensional reporting out of the box (there are no official documentation on how this can be implemented but unofficial online user blogs have provided us with some work-around solutions).

Use of Solution

I've used it for three and a half years.

Deployment Issues

There were no significant issues.

Stability Issues

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues

We had some issues with not being compatible with some “compatible” servers.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

8/10.

Technical Support:

8/10.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

There are some cheaper options in the market. We are currently planning on using another platform outside our US market due to cost. However, some platform options are not as robust as OBIEE.

Careful consideration has to be given when evaluating cost over features/performance just like any other ROI project.

Other Solutions Considered

if your project involves a lot of cross-dimensional reporting, you will encounter some pain points along the way setting up the RPD but solutions are available online.

If you are looking for a quick visualization solution, then look for Tableau, but if you want a deep, proven reporting tool (with relatively weak visualization features), OBIEE is actually pretty good.

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