Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer (discontinued)

Discoverer is well suited as a reporting tool where data integration doesn't play a major role. Discoverer suits very well situations where a user has to run a query every day. Discoverer reports can be scheduled and the user can just view the data instead of running the query manually. Also, Discoverer takes away the pain of managing the database credentials. Discoverer is not well suited to situations where the whole enterprise wants to view the same dashboard. Discoverer is more of a departmental BI tool. Discoverer doesn't offer many options to integrate data unless one has to create and handle integration using PL/SQL.

Qlik Sense is not appropriate for real-time dashboards. It is fantastic for EOD or dashboards which need to be refreshed every 10-15 minutes. Qlik Sense makes a fantastic Data Warehouse, if that is what your ultimate goal is. If you have the resources, you can extend the out-of-the-box functionality to suit your needs. Unfortunately, if you do not have the resources, you may struggle with the back end of Qlik Sense.

Pros

Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer (discontinued)

  • SQL friendly which allows for fast adoption for those users who know how to write in SQL. This makes integration with other programs much easier.
  • Accessing data is very fast even with larger data sets.
  • The layout is clean and organized similar to a spreadsheet which allows for easier viewing and analyzing of the data.
Joseph R. Sweeney | TrustRadius Reviewer

Qlik Sense

  • Running consistently without errors which gives users confidence in the system and its numbers
  • Easy to configure and customise to adopt to manyfold sources (facebook, google analytics, filemaker, SAGE, various Excel sheets)
  • Easy to navigate within the table and graphs (drill down, slice & dice, filter, sort) and easy to export results.
  • Geoanalytics is cool
  • Very customizable user and role based security
Jürgen Muthmann | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer (discontinued)

  • There is always room for more scalability and optimization of performance.
  • Oracle BI changes a lot from version to version. A smoother transition into a new version would be very helpful.
  • Oracle BI's reporting tool is a little hard to use at first. The UI/UX of the tool can use improvement.
Jatel Desai | TrustRadius Reviewer

Qlik Sense

  • Visualizations have sometimes worked slightly differently between releases requiring the need for some re-work when upgrading. Most of these have been appearance only but are still annoying.
  • Enterprise product should come with the ability to email common reports. People still want/need this but don't need all the functionality of the Nprinting product. Basic email functionality should not need to be a separate purchase. Perhaps give the basic functionality with the product to give people exposure to it would actually increase the take rate on Nprinting.

Standard user interface and powerful analytic functions is GREAT.As technical person working in the background there are more things to do to make this a completely great tool.Some functions that should be standard requires consult scripting and hours.Now we are using it quite advanced and with many servers and in combination with QlikView. So overall I love the tool. But it could be better and user friendly and powerful in the background

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer (discontinued)

Discoverer was already in place when I joined the company so I was not involved in the selection process. However, I have been involved in the review of Discoverer as compared to alternatives including Business Objects, OBIEE, and SSRS. On a cost benefit analysis Discoverer always came out on top. Changing to another tool never provided enough additional functionality to overcome the cost of conversion and ongoing maintenance.
Glen Norman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense, from a developer side, is way easier to pick up quickly while still holding the most functionality. Tableau is nice and has similar features to Qlik, but having to create each visualization/chart on its own sheet before building a dashboard is very much living 5 years ago. The ability to create master items in Qlik is parallel to this, but Qlik has the added feature of editing the charts/visualizations at the data level within the dashboard itself. I just finished a graduate program in Data Science, at the end of which we were all asked how we felt about Tableau. The overwhelming response was that, as you dig deeper into Tableau, you realize that it is not as easy and fun as it seems on the surface. With Qlik, I have had the opposite experience. The farther I dig into its full functionality, the more I find it to be useful at every level.

Return on Investment

Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer (discontinued)

  • We have used Discoverer to respond to state sales and use tax audits and saved the company more than the cost of the product. Discoverer has thus assisted in our objective of managing costs.
  • Discoverer is used to provide reports for EEOC reporting assisting our goal of complying with all government requirements.
Glen Norman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Qlik Sense

  • Positive - we have been able to dramatically reduce customer churn rate with increased business visibility.
  • Positive - reduced reporting complexity by pushing/flagging employees for specific needs, thus reducing the need for best-guess reporting.
  • Positive - overall ROI has been more than measurable from a simple complexity reduction standpoint. No more creating custom reports on a monthly basis. Once a report or dashboard has been created, that report becomes a standard for us and can be easily modified for future use.
  • Positive - we've been able to reduce head-count for report generation.
