This has not been an issue so far for this client, they are still in the early days of building their BI estate. View full review »

Director Of Business Intelligence at Enlivant
Scalability-wise, it's pretty good. When you use it with an ERP system or with CRM applications, it integrates with SAP, Oracle-based e-business applications, and even the Microsoft stack. Scalability-wise, you can leverage this product, and not only with an Oracle database. It can work with any database and with any heterogeneous source. It's very scalable and easy to maintain.

We are using it to a good amount of extent, but I believe it's scalable. There is some kind of heaviness to the application. If it can be compartmentalized, then they will have it really good. Right now, they are trying to scale it to an extent we could do, but it comes with some kind of administrative work from our side. View full review »

You can fund it well, scale it well and size it well; all of these things. It's a good product. It's not distributed. You can’t do distributed scaling, per se. Whenever you use the algorithm, if that's the case, you can always use a RAC system or something like that. On the application side, you can use however many servers you want. You could redirect your traffic accordingly, based on different servers. You can cater to different customers or to different business end users, depending on their priority. It's pretty scalable, but not distributed in nature. For example, it’s not good for big data analytics and that kind of stuff. View full review »

I think it's scalable. It just might not seem that it's as easy. We do have other products now that are coming into the market that are a lot easier for us to go ahead and use a mixed set of data. View full review »

Rikaz Moin
Systems Engineer at DMS
It is a scalable product. It should meet our future needs. It is a product where you have to initially set it up and position it for the future requirements so that the analysis part takes place properly. Based on that, you can get proper outputs. You can build it upon your stack, scheme, marks and dimensions. View full review »

Lead Engineer at a tech consulting company with 501-1,000 employees
Scalability is fine. I don't see any issues. Scalability-wise, most of the time, they depend on the underlying WebLogic server. The WebLogic server scales fine. View full review »

Sr. Analyst - Business Applications at a software R&D company with 1,001-5,000 employees
The solution is definitely scalable. I have seen it grow with my company. Once the tool is implemented, multiple teams want to exploit the tool, derive different business cases out of it and build different dashboards out of it. They give a base system, on which we can do ad-hoc reporting. Dashboard development is also extensive with OBIEE. View full review »

It is certainly scalable. Obviously, I can't predict how it will respond to millions of users working, but certainly a few thousand. We have added, subtracted, and soon, and it works perfectly. View full review »

We haven’t scaled the product yet. Our size has grown, but we did not have to scale the servers. Since we are managed on the cloud, though, scalability would be pretty straightforward. Oracle manages the product on the back end. View full review »
