Some of the most outstanding features of OBIEE is both its scalability and dependability. OBIEE is worthy of its ‘Enterprise’ moniker as it can handle any amount of end-to-end data thrown at it. But these strengths can only be realized if the business and engineering teams work diligently to define not only the various levels of data aggregation, but also clearly define the meta-data in order to establish efficient drill-down hierarchies and relationships. With proper table design plus good data governance, OBIEE can serve as the central delivery mechanism that brings insight into the business layer of almost any size of company. view full review »

Senior BI/DWH Developer at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
There are many valuable features. For example: * Multiple data sources: I can easily combine multiple data sources and organize them into a common business model. * Three-layer repository: With the three-layer repository, the development and interpretation are very simple. The three layers are divided from each other well both in logical and physical meaning. The physical layer is used for importing data, creating aliases, building physical joins, setting up connection pools, managing cache and hints for tables. The business model and mapping layer is used for creating logical columns, fact and dimension tables, hierarchies, measures, using fragmentations and filters, applying business logic. The presentation layer is used to prepare, group and organize the data for users to view. * Security management: Security management is very detailed, complex and well defined in OBIEE ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/oracle-obiee ). I can set up everything that I want; user security, object security, row-level security, etc. For example: I can easily connect users with application roles, different application roles with different privileges or set up data filters, other restrictions for users / application roles or manage subject areas/tables/columns access for users / application roles, etc. * Smart cache management: I can easily manage cache and cache settings. I can use it for common tables only, I can purge it in a scheduled way, etc * Interactive dashboards and analyses: Lots of rich visualization (dashboards, analyses, graphs, maps, etc); user interactions: drilling, pivoting, filtering, prompting, sorting, navigation and more. * Spatial integration: Lots of rich map visualizations, many supported map suppliers and a wide range of possibilities to use map data. * Individual customization using CSS and JavaScript. view full review »

The upgrade from version 10 to 11 drastically changed the perspective of our company's users from the perspective of the data analysis they can do. It's now much easier for our developers to mash up their repositories from different data sources, create new dashboards, create graphs, and send emails via agents. view full review »

Just as any business intelligence tool ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/categories/business-intelligence-tools ), the top five core expectations of any BI tool is to be able to: * Build adhoc reports (drag & drop) - for data discovery/exploration as well as to drive insight * Schedule set cadence reports - to avoid manual running of the report as well as including a broader audience to share with to further avoid any manual bottleneck processes, if this feature were not available * Visualization and Dashboards - basic & advanced (OBIEE offers both) - adhoc reports/data is great when one has enough time at hand to build great charts. What if the effort can be done just once and used many times? OBIEE out-of-the-box has a great selection of visualization choices, and others can be greatly customized with the right technical expertise * Offline data availability - OBIEE Briefing Book offers the data to be available even offline, and when connection is available can easily update to get the latest information; as suppose to the alternative of downloading PDF before going offline, and re-downloading when data refreshes * Customization - I simply cannot think of anything in OBIEE that cannot be customized, not to mention that APIs can also be built on-top for easy data communication with other tools view full review »

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 the reporting layer side and OBIEE was another good planning factor for me on that. view full review »

The best feature of this product is the reporting capability and customization. It lets the users do their own reporting, slicing and dicing, and getting the visual outputs rather than depending on a partner or developer to get reports or produce management reports. It's much easier to get different outputs rather than relying on a partner or another developer who has some experience in development, but with this product you don't need that as such. view full review »

This is an enterprise analytics platform that allows you to do both analytical and real-time reporting. It has a large fleet of products within itself, such as Oracle BI Publisher. You don't need a lot of time to build and deploy these tools. For the analytical needs, you have OBIEE as a platform where you can build the requirements. You model it, build dashboard reports, and then use it. Oracle covers all of your reporting needs from an organization standpoint. This application also has a self-service BI, which is an ad-hoc service. It allows businesses to generate their own reports. They don't have to wait for IT to come and do it for them. It saves a lot of time from a scheduling capability standpoint. If C-level executives want to create more billable reports, they can go down to the granular level of details. view full review »

It has good dashboarding. Also, being an Oracle ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/vendors/oracle ) product, it's good for ETLing in and out. It has a very good ETL process to get the data in and out of the data warehouse system. Also, it does have very good integration points to different products, such as Big Data, Hyperion ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/oracle-hyperion ), or Financials. You can pull everything up, project it and dashboard it. It's a good business intelligence platform. view full review »

What I like about OBIEE is the kind of interface we have at OBIEE gives us all the financial reporting, all the operational reporting, as well as the delivery reporting. All of these reporting modules are quite good at OBIEE, and they actually help us. It's quite faster, the way it is integrated with the whole Oracle ecosystem. Speed is one of the key issues. You don't like clicking on something and just waiting for even a few minutes. It becomes a pain; so performance is the key when it comes to using OBIEE. view full review »

The most valuable feature is that we don't have to do anything. They give the code by themselves. We just have to do minor customizations. Its usability is really good. When we implement the tool, we can implement it in a short span of time and start doing enhancements on the basis. It's really good; a good tool. They offer multiple database support. We can import data from Excel files, CSV files, along with our ERP ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/categories/erp ) systems. I just think that’s a cool thing. view full review »

The most valuable features are what you can do with it. It's the insight of the data that really gives the management the capability of looking beyond what they probably currently have within the transaction system. Now with 12c, there’s also data mash-up, which gives them the capability to look at different data, join them on the fly and look at the key indicators, which can probably give them insight into the business. view full review »

Business Intelligence Consultant at a tech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
* Ad hoc analysis * Dashboarding * Dimensional modeling (Administration tool) * Security and permissions For me as a consultant, these are the most valuable features of the product. By using the Analytics feature, users (and consultants) are able to build both simple and complex reports / graphs. The user is able to add complex calculations and to create almost any column he desires. The Administration tool is the workbench for the implementation consultant; this is where the data warehouse is called, and facts and dimensions are defined and joined. Here we transform data into a business model and make it accessible to the end user. It is possible to join multiple physical sources and combine their data into a single business model. So, if sales are recorded in a sales application and inventory is recorded in a different system, it can be combined right here. Security and permissions are important when, within a company, specific roles are defined that are (not) allowed to certain areas of data. OBIEE ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/oracle-obiee )provides roles and groups and data shielding by role or even user-level to cope with almost any business requirement at this point. view full review »

Oracle BIEE Consultant at a tech consulting company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Caching is a valuable feature. We can simply schedule the report to run before the users get to work. This reduces the time it takes for the users to load data-heavy dashboards. I only realized this after using Tableau ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/tableau ), but I really appreciate the re-usability of reports in OBIEE. I liked this because I don’t need to re-do reports that have to be in different dashboards and it makes my folder structure organized. Another feature I love are the functions readily available in the RPD. This makes life so much easier when computing for example, year ago, month ago, rolling months, percent growth, etc. Variables also give us a little flexibility with the formulas, titles and column names. view full review »

Senior Professional Services Consultant Manager at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The client required the ability to produce the same reports that they currently produce in Excel (replicating as close as possible to the format as the users were used to this), but distributed via a dashboard/mobile front-end rather than relying on emailing Excel files. For them, the most important features ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/oracle-obiee/by_topic/valuable_features ) were the ability to build complex and highly formatted analytic reports, to publish them on dashboards, to build mobile apps to allow access whilst out and about, but still be able to email reports out for those users who still wanted them that way. Including the report in the body of the email to avoid having to open attachments was also desired. The ability to directly access data in their warehouse rather than downloading into an Excel file was also an important consideration. This is a small company, but growing fast and the amount of data was becoming unwieldy in Excel and would just get worse. view full review »
