What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of Oracle OBIEE, for me, would be the Web Catalog. From a development perspective, I do not need any client or any software to be installed on my laptop or desktop. Everything is browser-based, so I just open the... more»

What needs improvement?

One feature I would definitely like to see is the ability to provide the in-memory data. Oracle might have some plugins but, as of now, that feature isn't available out-of-the-box. You might have to purchase that feature. This is the feature... more»

What other advice do I have?

All the drawbacks which I mentioned above, I would like to have all of those resolved in OBIEE. First of all, its installation, configuration, and setup should be very easy. It comes with its own application server and that creates a lot of... more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Unfortunately, this is the most difficult point with OBIEE. The license is very expensive.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I used only open-source solutions before OBIEE, but the functionality of these tools is not even close to OBIEE.

Jan 12 2017

What is most valuable?

It's one of the common integrated recording tools. I have been in the OBIEE world for quite some time. It's another powerful tool with certain aspects that are like no other tool. Three categorization layers gives us a lot of flexibility, which I didn't realize was possible on other reporting tools. Prior to this, I was on the ETL side and slowly transferred to... more»

What needs improvement?

I would say the biggest need for us is non-structured data. Most of the time, our users come up with an Excel file they want to integrate. It's pretty much impossible in OBIEE. I'll put it that way. When it comes to the BI world, maybe you can do that in SAP Business Objects, and as a company, we have OBIEE and Business Objects as parallel tools people use. That... more»

What is Oracle OBIEE?

OBIEE is a multifaceted network of tools that can create a more fluid and better-integrated data flow for your business. This service is actually a platform that is made up of six individual elements, rather than a single tool with multiple features. These services include: presentation catalog, BI presentation service, BI scheduler service, BI server service,administration client, and metadata repository.

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.
