Chose Oracle Analytics Server
SAP Business Object license is not cheap and was a bigger pain for the client to implement and adapt a new tool. QlikView is mainly used for dashboards and is not the best fit for reporting and ad-hoc reports. Since the client was using an Oracle tool set for their application …
Chose Oracle Analytics Server
At the time we made the decision, we also evaluated other tools such as QlikView and SAP Power BI. But since our main solutions are Oracle (ERP, planning, consolidation), it was natural to adopt OBI. And it was also less expensive than the others.
Chose Oracle Analytics Server
With respect to the above mentioned tools the Oracle BI provides excellent semantic layer(BMM) layer which is very effective in creating complex measures for various financial reporting solutions and also other use cases. The delivery options are great too. Only drawback is …
Chose Oracle Analytics Server
Oracle BI is similar to MicroStrategy in their difficulty of implementation and need for technical resources for ongoing management and administration. Both are well-suited for very large corporations with extensive data processing requirements. More modern BI tools such as Tabl…

The entire deployment and configuration stage was easy and it was accessible across the organization in a matter of days. Oracle Analytics Server being a cloud-based solution helped right from Input of Bulk Data to Info preparation, Data cleaning, and finally Data Modeling. Everything was visual and the Help Wizard was very intuitive.

Sales data validations have helped manage our justifications in the past, especially with regard to new product development and new business introduction. It has also been helpful in identifying trends with business impact and direction specific to quarter and monthly sales from ERP data as well as decisions to purchase equipment of staffing based on run rates and product demand.
One thing that can get out of hand is data output - if you aren't careful in your query, you may be overloaded with data dumps and drown in the amount of info you have to filter through. This is a user caution, not a comment on the software itself.

Pros
Oracle
  • Oracle helps with easy customization of reports.
  • It helps with the creation of dashboards and the integration of different data sources.
  • Oracle BI was a package used for multiple users across our organization - publishing and distributing reports was a breeze.

  • QlikView has a simple, relational data model that's REALLY fast. Filtering and changing data is dead simple results are almost immediately available.
  • The free version of Qlikview is almost completely featured, so you roll a pro-level product out to an entire department for really cheap.
  • QlikView is really flexible--if you can imagine it, you can build it.

Cons
Oracle
  • More AI but with human back up.
  • Less mumbo jumbo so even IT guys/gals can more easily work.
  • More statistics (math) and orientation for those not familiar with it.
  • More live as well as virtual (live) show casing of real situations in business.

  • We found that QlikView can be a bit slow in supporting some forms of encryption. It is web-based and we needed to upgrade all of our server to not support the older SSL and TLS 1 protocols, only support TLS 1.2 and TLS 1.3. However, QlikView could not run with TLS 1.2 and TLS 1.3. We had to wait over six months to get a version that would handle the newer TLS versions.
  • There are so many options with QlikView that you can get lost when developing a visualization. There are still items I have not yet figured out, such as labeling a graph with the name of a selected detail item.
  • QlikView works by pulling the data it is going to use for visualization into its database. I am a security reviewer and I need to make certain that PII and PHI is not pulled by QlikView for a visualization, otherwise this could become a reportable indecent.

Scalability and rich integration capabilities. In the future, if we go with Hyperion for the Financial Consolidation and planning purposes -BI integration with Hyperion is going to be much simpler as it has native interface connectivity and even integration capabilities with well known CRM products (Siebel) and ERP Products (Oracle EBS, Peoplesoft, SAP) is going to be easy and straight forward.

Ease of use, ability to load from pretty much any data source. today I created an application that loaded time sheets from excel that are not in a table format. With Qlik's "enable transformation steps" I was able to automate loads of multiple spreadsheets and multiple tabs easily. Could not do that with any other tool.

QlikView is very easy to implement. The installation is very straight forward. QlikView has several different data connectors that can connect to different data sources very smoothly. The user interface to build the reports is very easy to understand. This helps to have a smaller learning curve. Something very helpful is that QlikView is a browser application for the end users. So, you don't need to install any applications on the user's computer.

My experience with the Qlik support team has been somewhat limited, but every interaction I have had with them has been very professional and I received a response quickly. Typically if there is a technical issue, our IT team will follow up. My inquiries are specific to product functionality, and Qlik has been very helpful in clarifying any questions I might have.

"Implementation" can mean a few things... so I'm not sure that this is the answer you want.... but here it goes: To me, implementation means: "Is the user interface intuitive and can I produce meaningful reports with ease?" On that score, I'd say YES. The amount of training required was minimal and the results were powerful. The desktop implementation is a simple, "blank" interface just waiting for your creativity. The pre-populated templates give you a reasonable start to any project -- and a good set of objects to "play around with" if you're just getting started. Finally, note that the "implementation" I used was baked into QuickBooks 2016 Enterprise -- called "Advanced Reporting"..... That integration makes it ultra useful and simple.

Oracle BI works pretty well and has been well acknowledged and appreciated by the business users and power users who develop reports and dashboards. Compared to other tools, Oracle BI object development is easier and has a quick turnout. Using Oracle BI with Essbase and Oracle Exadata db, we believe the performance rendering data is quite good. We are using MicroStrategy as well almost equally, but for critical reporting needs considering the back end is Oracle and Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA) we have chosen OBIEE.

The only other vendor product that I have worked with that provides a similar experience to Qlikview is Tableau. I would recommend Tableau if your use case is to build a fixed dashboard. You can share reports for free without needing to buy additional licenses. I would recommend Qlikview if your users are looking for a more interactive experience. They can create new objects to represent the data which can't be accomplished as easily in Tableau

  • We've used OBIEE (or it's previous named product) for over 13 years and it's still the most used tool for BI by the business.
  • We moved our largest business system off of Business Object into OBI so we could gain improved performance, reliability, and easier management of metadata.

  • Generate quick reports for requirements that don't require complex calculations. ROI was fine, but Tableau software was much more intuitive for non-technical users on our team
  • When putting Qlikview reports side by side with Tableau, we ended up delivering Tableau reports since they were quicker to generate and required no technical expertise
