Oracle OBIEE Review

It provides centralized data governance. The visualizations and usability can be improved a lot.

What is most valuable?

The cost factor is the most valuable feature. It's very cheap to deploy it enterprise-wide without having to worry about breaking the bank.

How has it helped my organization?

The biggest advantage that I find is the centralized data governance, i.e., one version of truth is critical for any business. For me, OBIEE provides that one version of truth.

What needs improvement?

The visualizations and usability aspects in this product can be improved a lot. Even now, I constantly hear people comparing Tableau to OBIEE and how Tableau has a better UI and is easier to use compared to OBIEE, which is a bit difficult.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It does need some level of tuning but more or less, it is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have deployed it enterprise-wide and it works well for us.

How is customer service and technical support?

Opening a ticket with the support team can be frustrating. It takes a long time to resolve the issue.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We did not look at any other products.

How was the initial setup?

The setup process was straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

It's self-explanatory and not much guidance is needed.

However, you should not skimp on the hardware. It's a hardware-intensive product, so you must make sure you have good hardware.
