The entire deployment and configuration stage was easy and it was accessible across the organization in a matter of days. Oracle Analytics Server being a cloud-based solution helped right from Input of Bulk Data to Info preparation, Data cleaning, and finally Data Modeling. Everything was visual and the Help Wizard was very intuitive.

We have multiple client requirements for printing different sets of report output. For example, we have check printing for the Bank of America which we are going to achieve through BI publisher functionality another example is related to the invoices which we sent to customers there also we use this BI publisher application which has eased the process of printing reports

Oracle Analytics Server is really well suited to being able to build a wide variety of dashboards that can be detailed enough to communicate deep insights, while also being visually well prepared enough to be ready to present to an executive level team. It struggles with outside of the norm visualizations and more complex scenarios.

1. It is suited for transaction databases as well as relational databases 2. If you want a secure reporting then blindly go for it 3. It has an advanced AI build-in feature which can help in report forecast 4. If you have a full oracle stack then this will integrate really well

Oracle, for anyone that is slightly interested in the goings-on within companies, especially large influential ones on a world scale, know that like IBM and such, is soo admired, that even entities larger than it, have tried to 'knock it' down. But as in life and with man, it is impossible to keep a good thing 'down'. :)

It's an Excellent BI tool for mainly large organisations looking for a single source of truth for BI purposes. Its wide range of features can be used for an entire organization with very good control of Authentication implementation without hassles. Also caters the use of medium sized organization well . Not so worthy of the data source is less and the users are less(usually smaller companies with size less than 1000)

The most used scenario in our organization is the view of our recurring revenue. It is key for our managers to have access to the same data so that everyone is on the same page. This is also especially great for our finance department as they can view our numbers in real time.

Adding a new column or a new calculated field or a new table in OBIEE could take several days to months depending on each company’s processes.
Combining data from OBIEE with other external data is not possible for an end-user or superuser.

Oracle BI Foundation is well suited for enterprise data visibility in the format of dashboards. Oracle BI Foundation is less suited for operational reporting that needs to be generated instantly to manage the day-to-day operations in an enterprise.
Oracle BI Foundation is suited to report across platforms and bringing information from different sources.

It is best suited for ALL reporting and analytic scenarios really. I can't think of a scenario where it less appropriate or not appropriate to the best of my knowledge. It is simply to die for. It is especially best suited for customer facing scenarios especially.

For a larger sized company that is very process-oriented, this tool can be a blessing. Governed data will give good results, otherwise, it can be a waste of time and money. Compared to the cost and time of implementation and training, participation and buy-in from all departments are important to see the ROI.

The tool is still very good considering the complexities in data that can be modified within the tool using SQL queries. It can be used with advanced coding to integrate data from non-coherent sources. The only place where it is slightly less appropriate is where there is not a crisp UI. The UI and mobile experience could be more intuitive.

I would recommend Oracle BI Foundation Suite for two reasons. First, if you already use other Oracle tools, BI Foundation Suite will fit in nicely. Second, Oracle BI is relatively easy to learn and the collaborative ability with co-workers is quite nice.

Well suited for standard reporting or enterprise reporting requirements. Scheduled reports or ad-hoc prompt based /power user report builder capabilities are very good. It has an excellent integration model with Essbase and Oracle Exadata kind of relational back ends. No doubt of it’s strength on end to end enterprise reporting capabilities.
Less appropriate for cool visualization or dynamic interactive dashboards or analytics, D3 kind of capabilities. I found other tools or java based open sources much better in market.

For an organization that deals with a wide range of reporting needs and also has to handle huge volumes of data that are required for sourcing these reports, Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite provides a great tool in terms of both performance and usage. The layered approach to usage allows both data analysts as well as business analysts to be able to use OBIEE comfortably. However, the premium licensing cost of OBIEE makes it difficult for most startups and low-budget business to afford.

It is better suited for well-designed and organized data warehouses and data marts. It can take time to get full advantage of all of the features, and users need to be trained and user's active sessions need to be monitored for occasional unrealistic queries generated. It is probably less suited for un-refined raw data.

Oracle BI Foundation Suite becomes perfect to use when organizations are also using Oracle EBS for order management, service contracts, install base modules and all other modules of EBS. OBIEE pre-built BI apps and reports/dashboards can be used easily. Oracle BI Foundation Suite is best suited for enterprise-wide reporting. OBIEE requires understanding on the subject area model to create better reports when compared to other simple tools out in the market to build the reports.

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.

If the client is using Oracle based tools like the DB, ETL and application, Oracle BI Foundation Suite is one of the best fit for the client. For e.g. The automobile industry where we had implemented OBI, there was a cube built at the ETL level for calculating aggregations of their financial data. The client was using one another non-oracle tool to extract data from this cube to get their financial data but they were facing a lot of performance issues. We switched this reporting from the non-oracle to Oracle BI suit and the performance came down from 6 min to 40 seconds. That was just amazing what the client was looking for.

It doesn't matter what sector you are in. You can use Oracle Business Intelligence to extract whatever data you need for decision making. Our managers use it for all sorts of things: in payroll, to report how many hours their employees are working and to track overtime, in human resources to validate all new hire information and to audit hours worked for full-time/part-time employee classification, and in benefits to find out if any employee vs. employer-paid premiums are in balance and determine benefits eligibility, to name a few.

For the normal user (which we do not give BI access to), having access to this data would be overkill.
