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.

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

SAS Marketing Ops

  • Create and manage a detailed plan for a marketing campaign: when you create detailed project plans and then task and role levels, SAS Marketing Operations Management (SAS MOM) makes it easier to coordinate between projects with very little, if any, issues.
  • Share, reuse and leverage existing marketing assets: Like some marketing tools, SAS MOM allows you to create and reuse assets across various channels.
  • Manage project collaboration and execution: You are allowed to set up a workflow that helps move processes along without having to manage each step of the project.

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

SAS Marketing Ops

  • It would be good to have a Storyboard feature to summarize and tie together some of the dashboard metrics.
  • Missing feature: Hubspot CRM integration.

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.

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.
