Oracle BI Foundation Suite

I would use it with solutions that are already running with Oracle databases. And complemented with Oracle Desktop Integrator (ODI) it is really easy to integrate it with other data sources. However, if most of my main applications had a database I would seriously evaluate before deciding on OBI.

Pros

Oracle BI Foundation Suite

  • Analyze information at different levels of aggregation.
  • Graphs and charts are easily produced.
  • It is very nice to organize the screen with different views of the same information, all with common parameters. So you can analyze related information from many point of view, all in the same page.
  • It is very flexible to add fields to the report, to change orders, to transform a column into a parameter and vice versa.

Cons

Oracle BI Foundation Suite

  • I think it should evolve in its graphic capabilities to compete more strongly with other market tools.
  • It has good capabilities to integrate maps with information. However, this feature is sold separately, and is quite expensive. That's why, even when we need it, we decided not to use it.
  • In South America there are many resources that really dominate the tool. For this reason, or you end up paying very expensive values ​​for resources, or you end up working with consultants with knowledge of other tools. This in general allows us to develop the models that are needed, but we are definitely not making the most of all the capabilities.

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 BI Foundation Suite

Compared to Microsoft BI, Oracle BI has got good data modeling, adhoc reporting, scheduling and some rich visualization capabilities which definitely made us to choose Oracle BI against Microsoft BI.Tableau BI is a very simple and easy tool to implement and helps business users and analysts to do quick reporting and information discovery but this wouldn't be able to serve the needs of an enterprise reporting tool. With Tableau we still need to purchase a tool which will satisfy the enterprise reporting needs. Hence we decided on Oracle BI which gives us the enterprise reporting platform and also the quick reporting capabilities by leveraging the BI publisher reporting capability.
