With a wide array of internal customers, OBIEE has helped us provide a many-to-one Business Intelligence relationship. By transforming the company’s performance data into various dashboard perspectives, each information consumer can select a customized dashboard view. The result is to empower the business user to ‘self-serve’ some of their regular and most important reporting needs. This reduces the amount of noisy communication between the business and OBIEE power users within the company. It increases the speed of analysis, and it provides an unwavering consistency across the dashboards and downloaded reports. view full review »

Once fully used, the Visual Analyzer has great promise. However, you're allowing end users to upload spreadsheets that can mash with your existing data. This is a great idea (Tableau attack on Oracle's part), but it can be dangerous if the end-user data is wrong. In that case, the great report will be wrong. It still needs a data manager's blessing to check it, IMO. view full review »

The OBIEE interactive dashboards delivered trend information to end users, but also enabled them to drill down into the detail themselves when they saw anomalies. This meant that they could investigate the data themselves immediately, without the need for more than basic technical expertise, rather than submitting requests for data and going through iterative versions until they found what they were looking for (which I happen know can take weeks in other organizations, by which time the trend is 'stale'). view full review »

Taking top five features in mind: * Build adhoc reports ( http://www.itcentralstation.com/categories/reporting-tools ) (drag & drop) - our team and stakeholders build analysis everyday to find different ways to slice and dice the data to better analyze the business and produce actionable insight * Schedule set cadence reports - very heavily used feature across organization * Visualization and Dashboards (basic & advanced OBIEE offers both) - even executive dashboards are built using OBIEE given the flexibility of the tool * Offline data availability - used while traveling with peace of mind without having to worry about internet connection to stay connected with the data * Customization - we customized the tool to standardize to the corporate color pallet and to stay consistent. view full review »

It is beneficial for us because most of our reports are on OBIEE. It's not only for data analysis. We use it for corporate year-end financial purposes as well. We use it for the backlog management, for example, to check how much is the backlog or how much is the shipment amount and for similar kind of data. We are using OBIEE for such purposes. We are into the Oracle Supply Chain which involves the process from auto-booking to shipment. They bring the data from Oracle apps to Oracle Arch Work. There is a middle layer which is called ODS. From ODS, they put the data in the OBIEE product. From there, the IT teams create all the attributes, we bag them there and in this way, we can generate our own reports. That is how we have been using this product. It is useful for us especially for the quarter-end data analysis or to improve any metrics; in this way, we use OBIEE for data analysis purpose. view full review »

Oracle BIEE Consultant at a tech consulting company with 1,001-5,000 employees
The company I was assigned to is a utilities company, so they heavily rely on daily reports to monitor the situation. Customer feedback is very crucial to them. Working both as their business analyst and developer, I get to communicate with the people responsible for reporting to top management. Based on their feedback, some are able to see if pending items have been delivered and if not, they can easily identify which group to go to. This assures that their customers are satisfied with the service. Some have also said that with the reports readily available via OBIEE ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/oracle-obiee ), they can immediately download and present them to their bosses. No more use of spreadsheets to compute for the KPIs. view full review »

These reports are used all day by the company’s sales representatives as they travel between regional outlets, customers and suppliers. Having access to this data quickly via a tablet/mobile phone meant spending less time at a desk and could ensure that they have up-to-date information during their meetings. It has therefore greatly increased the time the sales reps can spend out on the road and positively impacted on the deals they are making. Their managers can also monitor during the day what the sales reps are up to and provide better guidance. view full review »

Sales people have a different kind of mindset and they want to see different varieties of reports. If somebody wants to see data by store, or by store in a particular ad, and their district managers want to see something with the region specifically, OBIEE can provide them that detailed data. Also, through BI Answers, we can get data that's time-specific, holiday-specific, weekday-specific, or weekend-specific. We can easily configure and manage pretty much any metric we want across our retail business. view full review »
