Oracle OBIEE Review
Implementation has changed the way we create and consume information.

Valuable Features:

  • Dashboards - Thousands of users get the exact information that is relevant to them.
  • Agents - The system automatically sends information when you need it.
  • Answers - Power Users (aka Data Scientists) investigate the data.
  • Integration - Analyse any data and present it in any format.

Improvements to My Organization:

Implementation has led to a complete change in the way we create and consume information. People no longer spend hours creating spreadsheets; they now make informed decisions. 

Room for Improvement:

Right now, there's no ability to add comments to the dashboards. We'd like to be able to do that.

Use of Solution:

I've been using it for 16 years.

Deployment Issues:

It's very easy to install.

Stability Issues:

The 12c version is much more stable than previous versions. We've had no real issues with instability.

Scalability Issues:

The system will scale out easily to thousands of concurrent users. We've had no issues with the inability to scale.

Technical Support:

Oracle provides good support, but the community is the place to go. Online experts, bloggers, conferences and the ACE program all contribute to a huge knowledge pool.

Previous Solutions:

Microsoft Office products are great, but they don't scale to billions of rows.

Initial Setup:

You can go from download to fully-installed in just a couple of hours.

Cost and Licensing Advice:

Negotiate hard! These products are not cheap.

Other Solutions Considered:

I also looked at Power BI and Cognos.

Other Advice:

Bring in an expert -- someone with real experience and who's independent.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: I am an independent Business Intelligence specialist, but have specialized in the Oracle BI recently because of the product, and have written a book on it.
