Oracle Data Warehouse

Including other products, Oracle is very specialized in business support. Choosing Oracle Data Warehouse would be a safe choice for an enterprise-level company (more than a thousand employees). Healthcare organizations may want to consider Oracle, as they are typically conservative with privacy and security issues with patient data. Although cloud-based systems are widely being adopted in the healthcare industry (such as population research or genomics), core data sets (such as patients' sensitive medical records) may be better stored with a home-grown data center and warehouse solution.

Oracle Hyperion

Well suited: For use in multiple offices around the world. I was able to obtain financial reporting data from 5 foreign offices and then consolidate their data with 3 domestic USA offices to prepare a consolidated financial statement.Less Appropriate: Translating the financial value for consulting services could be a bit challenging because that required human interaction and judgement. It would have been great to be able to set up some software to be able to interpret this and let it run for all future project work revenue projection.

Pros

Oracle Data Warehouse

  • Able to handle very large data sizes efficiently from a performance, high availability and manageability perspective. This is accomplished through the Oracle Partitioning functionality. Partitioning allows large segments (tables, IOT index-organized tables, indexes) to be broken into smaller segments at the physical layer but treated as a whole at the logical layer.
  • Provides support for dual-format architecture through Oracle In-Memory functionality. Without any change to application code one can obtain in-memory performance. This functionality enables us to have the tables represented in both the row format and the column format using in-memory format. This is a huge boost for BI/analytic queries since the Oracle optimizer is able to intelligently choose the appropriate format.
  • Provision to materialize a subset of table data or table joins. This is through materialized views and the optimizer will rewrite the query against the base tables to make use of this materialized view. This provides a huge performance boost and is critical in VLDBs as in a data warehouse. The query rewrite is fully transparent to users.
  • Provides multiple compression capabilities. This is very useful not only for deducing the storage foot print but as well as increase performance at different layers of the infrastructure including query performance. The compression functionality can be applied against both structured and unstructured data.
  • With the advent of Engineered Systems (Exadata, Database Machine, SuperCluster) there are specific features and functionalities that can further boost the Oracle data warehouse. These are related to consolidation, Smart Scan, Storage Indexes, EHCC (Exadata hybrid columnar compression) and much more.
  • RAC - Real Application Clusters (with 2 or more nodes) provides functionality for high availability, performance and scaling as the work load increases. The parallelism is provided both within a node and as well as across nodes. If for any reason a node goes down the data warehouse is still available through other nodes and the running queries are transparently failed over to the surviving nodes.

Oracle Hyperion

  • This product handles budgeting by Employee and/or Position very well. It is highly flexible and allows Hyperion administrators the ability to develop a planning application that fits a variety of different business needs.
  • It is great at calculating benefits using business rules to automate the population of these fringe costs in the overall budget planning process. This greatly reduces user error.
  • It allows you to seed the operating budget based on changes to key drivers, such as percentage increases, flat dollar increases and more detailed changes using business rules.
  • Allows visibility into the plans for each unit across the organization, rolled up into an overall budget for the campus.
  • It handles the creation of budgets with multiple chartfield segments or dimensions, which most other budgeting systems cannot handle well. It can aggregate these very quickly.

Cons

Oracle Data Warehouse

  • Customer support isn't the best out there. We usually have to wait about an hour to get some form of assistance.
  • Pricing is a bit higher than many of its competitors such as AWS Redshift.
  • Tweaking features requires dedicated staff. Software is fairly advanced. Would be difficult to use for newcomers.

Oracle Hyperion

  • One pain point for us is the consolidation and translation process. Needing to translate the data over and over again is frustrating and there is no visibility into how many users are running a translation. If multiple users attempt to translate the same data set, say goodbye to your performance but you have no way of knowing! (Unless you want to pull up a task audit which is not a very realistic expectation). It has the been the quickest way for us to bring the system to it's knees. The consolidation process performs in direct correlation to the complexity of the calculation/consolidation rules. So, while the product is extremely flexible, you still have to be careful how you design your rules and calculations to make sure that you do it on the smallest subset of data as possible to avoid large processing times. This makes sense, but requires some significant expertise that most organizations do not have in-house.
  • The Hyperion Financial Reporting product is ridiculously outdated and clunky to use. The interface for designing reports is not intuitive, and not easy to modify once a report is built. I think there must be a strategic decision to move away from it and go to something more like Oracle BI because I just can't understand why in the world they don't update the reporting product. It also requires a significant level of expertise to be able to use. Not a great solution at all if you want multiple end-users to create reports in something other than Excel. Nobody except the HFM admin (which I used to be) in our company even touches this module.
  • Another pain point is the amount of IT support that is required to run this thing, and again, specialized knowledge of Hyperion products and how they work is required for IT to adequately support it. This goes for application servers and the Oracle database that the applications are running on.

We're in the middle of the road because we are not sure that other products on the market fit the bill for what we need yet. Hyperion is expensive and burdensome from an administrator and maintenance standpoint, but it still seems to be the best solution for what we need. Show us an equally capable SaaS consolidation product and we'll talk again.

The premium support team provides much needed dedicated customer service which we are after for what we have paid for this service. We are satisfied with the service and support and do not have any instance where there was an issue that requires escalation to get the right support team. Though the incidence of major issues that requires the premium support are less, we prefer to keep this as a safety net.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Data Warehouse

Oracle is, in my opinion, the top dog in this space. I feel like the other vendors are playing catch-up to where Oracle is right now. It is also likely the most expensive option out there.

I use Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Mangement because the company I work at requires me to use it in the Financial Planning sector as most of their data is stored in it. I am open minded and ready to use other performance management tools created by Oracle if my work permits.

Return on Investment

Oracle Data Warehouse

  • Very cost effective for large databases.
  • Very fast results on simple queries.
  • Analytical functionalities are of wide range, which makes it very cost effective.
  • For smaller businesses, it might be a great asset.
  • Some features are supposed to be bought separately, so one needs to consider this before licensing with Oracle DW.
Kartik Chavan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Hyperion

  • Oracle Hyperion allows us to automate and consolidate financial data that used to be performed manually in spreadsheets. From that perspective the ROI is huge.
  • Oracle Hyperion functionality is extensive and allows us to perform most functions for planning, consolidating and reporting on our financial data.
  • One negative with Oracle Hyperion is that it is complicated to implement and maintain. It takes expertise at all levels (infrastructure and management) to realize the benefits from it.
