Quotes From Members

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."

More Oracle OBIEE Pros »

"We can generate various graphs, various reports and we can mainly use it for dashboard related things. We can create a dashboard with live data and we can make decisions based on this information,""This solution has improved our organization by making our analysis results available to customers.""The drag-and-drop dashboard builder is an intuitive interface for building dashboards from source reports.""The drag and drop UI has been the most useful to me.""All the necessary information is available to everyone in real time.""The UI is very easy to use, with drag and drop self-service analytics.""The most valuable features are the mobility and web integration.""This tool not only allows for consumption of the data in a visual way, but also allows the user to modify the question to get new answers."

Cons
"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."

More Oracle OBIEE Cons »

"I would like for it to be more of a plug and play with all of the tools and sources. It would make it much easier to use.""A valuable improvement for this solution would be the enabling of us to host dashboards for our customers.""This solution would be improved by adding some Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Deep Learning (DL) components that are easier to interpret and design.""The only thing I would say that comes up is that sometimes it can be a bit buggy.""The next version should include more standard integrations.""Advanced graphs or visualizations must be in the built-in product, instead of building with open API extensions or mashups.""I would like to have support for table formats without having to use an extension.""The product could be improved by implementing a user-feedback ranking system."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"Licensing is quite good, easy, but slightly expensive.""Licensing can start to get expensive, but compared to other tools in this space it is about average.""QlikSense offers a Hybrid environment architecture, which is very cost effective based on where the enterprise data resides.""Qlik Sense and its pricing model can follow any scalability.""The license mechanism of Qlik is quite complicated and not exchangeable. Such as 2016, they charge licenses by token, 1500$ for a token / 1 user. 2018: they change to 2 kinds of licenses: professional 1500$ / user, analyzer 800$ / user. 2019: they support subscription with 70$ Monthly for professional, 40$ monthly for analyzers, but for those you’re using perpetual licenses, they don't support acquiring more subscription licenses. The maintenance fee yearly are also high, 20% of the perpetual license."

The purpose of the OBIEE is to have an entire system for all of your enterprising needs. The various tools within the suite can take your data, organize it, analyze it and then glean the pertinent information from it, sending it on to the relevant parties who can then use it for metrics, pattern analysis, and future projections. The essence of the platform is to integrate your current IT together with their tools in order to give you the overall best return on investment with minimal fiscal obligations.
