Oracle OBIEE Previous Solutions

Michael De Sousa
Head of IT at Obegi Chemicals Group
We switched to OBIEE because Discoverer was very old and outdated. We migrated from Oracle databases 11G to 12C, and they found that Discoverer was not compatible with the Oracle database 12C. They decided to move to another platform, and the previous IT manager was very Oracle focused and orientated, which I don't agree with because Oracle is very heavy resource intensive and there are much lighter applications that you can plug into. The way they structured it wasn't very conducive to the business because OBIEE and the data that you compile on that is used for OBIEE. Now what I'm trying to do is, we're busy modeling the data for a data warehouse where we can plug multiple connections to that data. You can have mobile apps for different business criteria, business objectives, and business goals, and once you're with OBIEE your limited to that. That's the problem, that lack of research and insights causes. When choosing a new solution, the most important factor is understanding the business goals and objectives and understanding what the business needs from that product. Once I've got all that information I then look at the different products and see what they can do. I look at the product and see how much of the business criteria it ticks off and I measure and compare it to other platforms. I rate it on a scale and see which one best suits the business.

We were trying to use a custom based tool. That didn't work. Every time we had to make a minor change, a technical person had to be involved. A lot of different layers, and it was like product delivery. It was a continuous development. This was a big change for us. It was pretty much plug and play. View full review »

CEO at a pharma/biotech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Yeah, we were using an old product that Oracle sunsetted, I believe. This product, OBIEE, they acquired, they didn't build it. This is now their choice of tools for reporting. Before, they were using an Oracle product which was not the greatest. It was Excel-type stuff. View full review »

We did not have a previous solution. The most important criteria when selecting a vendor include * support - that is one of the important things * availability of partners to help if we need anything * integration with ERP systems and the other tools that each company would have. View full review »
