  • Acoustic Analytics (formerly IBM Watson Customer Experience Analytics)
IBM is also a very fine contributor in these fields of software engineering. They like Oracle are the masters of large data, whether for large entities, or small shops.

With respect to the above mentioned tools the Oracle BI provides excellent semantic layer(BMM) layer which is very effective in creating complex measures for various financial reporting solutions and also other use cases. The delivery options are great too. Only drawback is pricing is costly for this one and can only provide value for money in case of large scale implementation

OBIEE is comparable to SAP BO in many respects, even more so than MS Power BI. It stacks up strong compared to another similar tool in the market with respect to enterprise-level reporting. Among various other financial and strategic reasons, OBIEE was chosen because of its capacity to scale and provide long term data and analytics solutions.

Oracle stacks up very well against these tools. It is highly customizable with data being available from multiple sources with ease. SQL queries make it very easily customizable. The UI part can be crispier and smoother which is slightly better in the other software. I'd still rate it very well as it is well suitable for larger organizations.

Oracle BI is obviously well-thought-out. It has done its research on what other tools' capabilities are and has tried to excel at things like visualization and data manipulation. With that said, it's graphics are middle-of-the-road and its analytics capabilities are a work in progress. I think it is catching up with the other tools quickly.

Oracle BI works pretty well and has been well acknowledged and appreciated by the business users and power users who develop reports and dashboards. Compared to other tools, Oracle BI object development is easier and has a quick turnout. Using Oracle BI with Essbase and Oracle Exadata db, we believe the performance rendering data is quite good. We are using MicroStrategy as well almost equally, but for critical reporting needs considering the back end is Oracle and Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA) we have chosen OBIEE.

While Oracle BI Foundation Suite (esp. OBIEE 11g) outperforms most other business intelligence tools available on the market (Looker, Cognos, etc), it falls behind on a few fronts. One of the primary features where OBIEE falls behind is the reporting and visualization tools. Most other tools with similar range capabilities either offer great in-built visualization tools or easy integration with other visualization tools. OBIEE offers neither.

Business Objects was considered in places where the organization is using an SAP-based transactional system. Looker again becomes the advantage where you are going to build a totally new customized data warehouse model since it allows you to better reduce some extent of the ETL logics and it can be considered directly on the LookML model. Tableau is more user-friendly compared to OBIEE.

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.

SAP Business Object license is not cheap and was a bigger pain for the client to implement and adapt a new tool. QlikView is mainly used for dashboards and is not the best fit for reporting and ad-hoc reports. Since the client was using an Oracle tool set for their application and DB, we found Oracle BI was a much appropriate tool for them.

  • ADP and Compleo
Business Intelligence works as well if not better than ADP and Compleo, in the sense that you have a few more options or report-writing platforms to work in depending on the need. For example, intermediate or advance users can start with the Report Studio for greater control when writing reports (charts, crosstabs, joins and unions, etc.), while for entry-level reporting the Query Studio would work just fine for list-type reports. The analysis studio is a great resource for managers to go directly to to compare labor hours and dollars, and the Event Studio is great for HR/PR admins to create alerts notifying them of specific changes to employee data, such as when employees move from full-time to part-time and vice versa, or when an employee is terminated and PTO may need to be paid out, for example. even something simple, like when an employee is hired and an emergency contact is missing, that sort of thing.

Scorecard and Strategy Management – This component helps companies set specific goals and track and manage performance.

Business Intelligence Publisher – Users can create interactive reports in multiple formats, such as PDFs – users can also set a specific date and time for the reports to be delivered.

I'm a trainer...I have an available video course on OBIEE as well. I have found OBIEE to be a very comprehensive tool and the environment is easy for both IT professionals and business analysts to pick up on and utilize. Discoverer was easy to use but was desktop based. It did not do dashboards, it mostly prepared data for extract to Excel perhaps. Many of my clients used Discoverer for both reporting and for data extract. OBIEE can do the same kind of reporting but also present data in a useful manner to management teams and remote field personnel.

The major advantage of Oracle BI Foundation Suite compared to other products is that it has the best integrity with the Oracle suite of products. We worked on the projects where organizations want to scrap out Business Objects to migrate to Oracle BI Foundation. I know Business Objects is excellent in the functionality but it requires more administration work and more server space compared to Oracle BI Foundation Suite. Also, Business Objects can't provide an end-to-end solution (ETL & Reporting) on an Oracle ERP.

Oracle BI is similar to MicroStrategy in their difficulty of implementation and need for technical resources for ongoing management and administration. Both are well-suited for very large corporations with extensive data processing requirements. More modern BI tools such as Tableau, Qlik, Sisense etc. are much easier to deploy and run and do not require as much technical administration as Oracle BI or MicroStrategy. In my case, Oracle BI was already selected as the default choice for enterprise BI before I arrived, so I did not have much influence of the selection process. However, when I founded HDI and after an extensive evaluation period I made the decision to go with Tableau as a more modern BI tool that is easier to manage than Oracle BI.
