Being rollover customers from a previously owned company there was confusion about licensing. Talking to an Oracle rep helped. view full review »

Unfortunately, this is the most difficult point with OBIEE. The license is very expensive. view full review »

Pricing of the training should be lowered to allow more new entrants into the the field. If the price is too high, mainly existing partners can afford it, and the market does not grow. The licensing is fair, but they should try and bundle the licensing cost as licensing as almost every component tends to hike the overall price. view full review »

For enterprise BI, OBIEE is still one of the best products. Oracle does give a good discount and ensures a successful implementation. view full review »

Contact a reseller (such as Ordina) to negotiate the best price. Oracle ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/vendors/oracle ) list prices are always negotiable. view full review »

Senior Professional Services Consultant Manager at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
For this client, the licensing requirements where initially quite simple; they knew how many users they intended to provide the reports to, so they only purchased the licenses for them. The long-term intention is to incorporate more reports and, hence, service more users within the company, but they know they can extend the licenses as and when required. In this scenario the advice is quite simple – start small and grow as you need to; there is no point buying enterprise-wide licenses until you need to. view full review »

EPM/BI certified Consultant, Oracle ACE and TeraCorp Consulting CEO at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
Always talk with a Oracle representative and negotiate a discount. I already saw 99% of discounts and a free licence once. Some times is cheaper if you get a hardware together (helps to negotiate a discount) view full review »

The re-licensing is a large cost proposition so we may be looking at alternatives, I think, in the next couple of years. view full review »

There are some cheaper options in the market. We are currently planning on using another platform outside our US market due to cost. However, some platform options are not as robust as OBIEE. Careful consideration has to be given when evaluating cost over features/performance just like any other ROI project. view full review »

There is a need for a per CPU rather than per user license for OBIEE as this impacts the number of users that can be deployed, and therefore the level of security of data throughout the system. view full review »
