OAC has a more reasonable price point than OBIEE. OAC gives you more options and choices. It's more flexible.

The solution is a bit expensive for a lot of clients. Many might not have the funds available for Oracle products. Most believe it to be a costly product. Nobody has compared it to the other reporting tools, however. They might not understand the costs involved.

It is reasonable, but it depends on how you're going to use it. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.

The cost of this solution is a little bit high compared with other products like Zoho, so reducing it would make OBIEE more competitive.

This was not an expensive product for us, although the price varies depending on conditions for each company.

The solution has a reputation for being expensive and has a confusing pricing model. There aren't extra fees on top of the main licensing costs, however.

I'm not sure what the solution costs. I'm not involved with aspects of billing or contract negotiations. I don't know if we pay on a monthly or yearly basis.

Oracle products are extremely expensive. However, the version that we have is older and we no longer pay licensing fees.

I can't recall the exact pricing. There are three different categories. The pricing is available online. If you go to their website they're quoted there and they charge per hour band per day as they have different offers for their customers. If you want to know about their pricing of the particular categories, on their website their prices will be available there. Their prices have changed from the last year. Right now I don't have any sense of price. However, I was part of the implementation team, and I noticed their pricing is not much higher but it's moderate pricing.

Setup cost, pricing, and licensing for OBIEE are all geared towards more substantial enterprises. A full blown HA - Dr setup can have many moving parts.

The pricing we negotiated with Oracle. But, I do not have details.

I think to spread this across an enterprise will be a significant investment. Be prepared to spend a lot of time and money.

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)
