The client was already an Oracle database user, so Oracle’s Business Intelligence product was the obvious first port of call when looking for a better reporting solution. I do not know how seriously they looked at other products. View full review »

Director Of Business Intelligence at Enlivant
We looked at IBM Cognos, QlikView, and Tableau. From an IT standpoint, we look at self-service BI, integration, and scalability. When it comes down to the senior, C-level executives, price is also another factor. Tableau is a product which can be used for data discovery, but not for organizational analytical needs. That is the missing part. Cognos is missing a lot of important features like self-service BI and many other dashboard capabilities. I've seen other data analytics platforms like IBM's suite of products, SAP Business Objects, and Microsoft BI stack. All of them are good, but when it comes down to the collaboration of functionalities, on the business or IT side, OBIEE is the best for the organization. That's the reason we deployed Oracle Business Intelligence for our organization. View full review »

When I first encountered OBIEE, I had no choice to use other options, because this platform was preferred at that company. That was five years ago and since that time, I have been using OBIEE and I can recommend using it to everyone. On the other hand, if our customers would like to use an open-source BI platform, I can recommend using SpagoBI, for example. View full review »

I'm a consultant and my only evaluation was on the database. I decided on Oracle because of the database and, during my career, their other tools are starting to come naturally. View full review »

At the time that we made the decision to go with this product, there weren’t that many other players in this area. Over the past three years or so, there's been a surge of new players in the market. We've probably had OBIEE for about five years now. At the time, it was pretty new. There weren't a whole lot of options and OBIEE was probably the best tool around. When I’m looking for a vendor such as Oracle, the most important criteria I consider are the partnership and the support. We've been an Oracle shop for a long time and I know that there are certain relationships that I've had with the account team. That's important. I think that, again, really working together and providing us information that will help us make the decisions towards new solutions, whether with Oracle or with Dell. Then, definitely, if we need help with escalations and so forth we can turn to them. View full review »

We also considered Hyperion and there was also Teradata. We had Oracle E-Business Suite, so we just stayed with the same product suite. It ended up becoming a good bet because right now everything is BI, and mobile and data analytics. Back then, I didn't expect it to be that, but I picked a good horse. When I’m looking at a vendor such as Oracle, it is important that they're providing new tools all the time, and that they also are very stable; you know they're going to be around. You also feel like they have an integrated solution, so that OBIEE works with the Oracle database, and then you also have Oracle front ends that are also calling Oracle BI reports. It's an integrated solution. View full review »

Sr Software Engineer BI at IGT
With Oracle, with the BI specifically, there are so many outside tools. There’s MicroStrategy and Tableau. The basic difference between Tableau and Oracle BI is the volume of the data BI can hold; Tableau can't hold as much data. That's the major difference. Also, the stability of the product is really good. View full review »

I did a demo with Domo, but those guys were right behind me for more than a year. We didn't have any plans with Tableau, but it may be a solution that we could eventually migrate to. View full review »

We looked at third-party software, but we prefer to stick with Oracle. With Oracle, it’s easy to integrate with each of the suites and modules that we already had. We didn’t want the cost of integrating with third-party apps. This was an easy decision for us. View full review »

Compared to Tableau, I think it's mostly useful for more tabular reports where we are just exporting transactions and things like that. Typically, we will take that information and pull it into Excel to create a chart or graph, and then throw it into a presentation. It's good for that. It's good for getting the data dumps that you need, I mean, at least for us because it replaced our discovery tool. View full review »

Director, Application Development & Business Intelligence at BE Aerospace
We selected this because we got a good deal on OBI, Hyperion and other products as a package; that was one of the reasons we picked this. Of course, features-wise it checked out equally with other tools that we evaluated. Eventually, cost plays into it. The features that we were looking for were data visualization; slice and dicing of data; analytics, if you will; mobility; ease of use; scalability, of course; and also, response time.

I can make a comparison with Business Objects and MicroStrategy. Even though these are excellent tools for business analysis, Oracle OBIEE has allowed the company to approach data analysis in a structured and shared way favoring the growth of analytical expertise across the entire company.
