Oracle OBIEE Review

We use the dashboard, analytics, and fast report generation. New reports are hard to use.

What is most valuable?

The best features are the dashboard and the analytics. The report generation is very fast.

How has it helped my organization?

At the organizational level, it's pretty secure. The security is the best part. We use OBIEE with QlikView as a composition of that, so that both of these applications support each other.

What needs improvement?

I think for ease of use, right now, OBIEE is a nice tool. Business users can use the reports nicely, but with a lot of the new reports, some IT guys are still required. If they could make that easier, because the business users don't understand the SQLs. If that could be some kind of GUI drag and drop for those fields, it would be quite awesome.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We haven’t had any issues with downtime. It’s quite good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's quite a heavy tool, and can be scaled to any level.

How is customer service and technical support?

Support is good.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Actually, we have all sorts of Oracle applications in our stack. We use SQL.

What other advice do I have?

Use OBIEE if you have large data to process for heavy duty applications. If you are using it for a small to mid-sized company, OBIEE doesn't make much sense. It is for large enterprises.
