Oracle OBIEE Pros and Cons

Oracle OBIEE Pros

Michael De Sousa
Head of IT at Obegi Chemicals Group
We do you use Oracle support. We've been paying for an Oracle support subscription for four or five years, and not one ticket has ever been logged. When I came in, I've encouraged the team to ask Oracle questions. They do get back quite quickly. Their support is good. Working with our account managers, if I need to escalate anything, I can speak to them and they escalate the call. I've got that ecosystem working quite well. That does work for us.

They are introducing AI. There are good forecasting features and machine learning.

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.

I think having the conformed structures makes it a lot easier for end users and pulling reports together.

Oracle OBIEE Cons

Michael De Sousa
Head of IT at Obegi Chemicals Group
They should develop greater visualization because their visualization isn't industry leading at the moment. The way you pull the data and see the data compared to other platforms, they're lagging a little bit behind. Also, their cost. I've got Oracle account managers trying to persuade me every day to purchase these licenses. Once you purchase OBIEE, then you have to purchase the virtualization and then you have to purchase the mobile license to operate on the mobile. It's really expensive.

The solution is too expensive for small firms.

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.

This solution is weak in the data science perspective. I have past data science experience. And, I find that there is a lot of room for improvement in terms of incorporating more advanced statistical modeling into the product.

It takes a lot of maintenance to support the architecture, which is something that should be improved.

In terms of tech support, we have our own technicians. But, we did register for their help. When we register a call, it takes time for them to respond to us.

It is not a good product for data visualization.
Its functionality is lacking.
