Oracle Analytics Server

The tool is still very good considering the complexities in data that can be modified within the tool using SQL queries. It can be used with advanced coding to integrate data from non-coherent sources. The only place where it is slightly less appropriate is where there is not a crisp UI. The UI and mobile experience could be more intuitive.

Dashboard Platform

When there is the need to rapidly show data and/or build a nice UI without having to build your own stuff. Let's say one needs to have a complete dashboard about some business streams or other KPI intensive system. Designing and implementing everything from scratch will take a huge amount of time. And a steep learning curve. Dashboard platform will help cut down those two timelines.

Pros

Oracle Analytics Server

  • Ease of development and quick turnouts as the build is easier compared to some other BI tools for both reporting developers as well as the power users. The RPD development is comparatively easier to build for star schemas and also the subject areas are easier to use by the power users.
  • Easy integration of Mobile BI interface and sharing features in the same layer.
  • Easy integration of other functionality like MapViewer. Multi database type integration is enabled which is not really a distinctive feature in market, but has been improved a lot in OBIEE now.

Dashboard Platform

  • Using to set up good looking visualization
  • Not so many dependencies are needed and it's easy to adjust when required
  • Great support platform

Cons

Oracle Analytics Server

  • Some issues that require the assistance of support at Oracle can be time-consuming and difficult to solve.
  • Upgrade from 10g to 11g has made the OBI Foundation Suite very performance intensive. Requires much better hardware support now.
  • Initial setup is not as straightforward as that of previous versions.

Dashboard Platform

  • The documentation. It lacks detail and real-world examples.
  • The theme support. It really could use some improvement in the easiness of customization
  • As always, there's room for improvement. Maybe allowing for a better experience in terms of mix and match data points on the graphs

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.

For me or a staff memeber that uses it frequently, its usability is sufficient. However newbies could have a few issues but find their workflow

It's fast, efficient and easy to work with. Scheduling could help when planning out a day however overall it's a big plus when rolling out and supporting Oracle.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Currently using it but we will do more research on D3

Return on Investment

Oracle Analytics Server

  • 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.
