We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros

"They are introducing AI. There are good forecasting features and machine learning.""The most valuable feature is the ability to set up the automated delivery of reports.""The solution is easy to use and very flexible.""I like the architecture of this solution. RPV is a powerful feature in Oracle OBIEE. It lets us design as per the needs of the organization. I can have multiple presentation folders and presentation layers. I can have customization in a single node in VMware, which is a very good feature of Oracle OBIEE. It helps customers in designing as per their requirements.""The visualization is very good.""The most valuable features are the lexical parameters and distribution.""The most valuable feature is the ability to run it in Exalytics within memory coupled to a Repository on Exadata is where it flies. So it's not meant for mom and pop shops, but if you are a global 500 fortune 1000 company, this is a tool that can get you what you need on time and even in real time.""The most valuable feature is the user-friendly set of tools that the customer can use to develop their own business dashboards."

Cons
"It's wonky, and not super user-friendly with Excel.""Extracting data is a little slow.""It would have been better if the solution was not just a tool kit."

"The solution is too expensive for small firms.""It takes a lot of maintenance to support the architecture, which is something that should be improved.""The solution needs to be easier to scale.""Even though we have a feature to enable the physical query to be seen in the log, in case of any issues, it is challenging to debug and see or identify where is the issue. For example, we designed the OBIEE repository and deployed it into the server, and we are now accessing and creating a report. For some reason, if the report is not working as expected, it is very difficult to identify the issue. We have a feature to see the physical query that is being generated in the central OBIEE server. I feel that this feature should have been available at the repository level so that while designing the repository, we can select the presentation columns and the query it is going to create. This will avoid the additional task of deploying a feature into the server and then testing the report. It will also make the implementation process friendly if, while designing the repository, we can see: How is a feature working? Are any of the presentation columns selected? How is the query being generated? Which query is being generated? Are any joints used? What kind of joints are used? Having this kind of information will make Oracle OBIEE more powerful and developer-friendly.""The pricing model could be improved. Right now, it's quite confusing. Many customers have this feeling that it's a super-expensive option.""It was a little bit tedious to install a new release.""One significant improvement is the need for simplification. The set up could be more intuitive. An enterprise setup with HA and DR are pretty complex and to get a robust solution one has to play around with Real Application Cluster data sources and FAN notifications as well as WebLogic clustering and external load balancers. SSO also is not that simple to set up especially if you want all your Oracle systems to use the same SSO solution, i.e., no cheating with direct LDAP connectivity.""The complexity of this product means that you need to have a technical team to develop the reports, although this is also true for products like Microsoft BI and Zoho."

"Oracle products are extremely expensive.""This was not an expensive product for us, although the price varies depending on conditions for each company.""The cost of this solution is a little bit high compared with other products like Zoho, so reducing it would make OBIEE more competitive.""It is reasonable, but it depends on how you're going to use it. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
