Web-based solution enables multiple users to access the same data

Pros and Cons

  • "It's web-based so that I can have multiple users accessing the same data. It provides ease of use and its formatting means we can use the data, export it to Excel, and we manipulate the data afterward if we need to."

    What other advice do I have?

    You need to know what your objective is, whether it's for reporting tools or databases. There are big differences in database structures between Oracle, MySQL and SQL Server. Once you know which platform you want to be able to use as far as the database is concerned, the reporting tool is just a matter of what flavor you enjoy the most, in terms of ease of use and learning curve. Any of the above products work on any other platform, except maybe Microsoft SSRS. I'm not sure how well that works with NoSQL databases, but I know it works with the three that I'm looking at it.

    The pre-built data models are great and scalability is unlimited. Setup is complex and it hasn’t been stable.

    What other advice do I have?

    Look at your source systems. It is only pre-built to go with PeopleSoft applications, JD Edwards and Oracle eBusiness of SAP. If you're not running one of those, it doesn't make sense to buy the pre-built. You also need to consider is how heavily customized the resource system is because it's pre-built based off of the vanilla product sets. Any customizations you've made to the product after it’s delivered, you're going to have to account for in the pre-built data warehouse and even into OBIE. I would rate it a seven out of ten overall.
