  • Being a web based application that runs on an active production environment, it is amazingly light on network utilization and overall resources consumption on the server running it.
  • It has thousands of customizations to generate literally any dataset. This makes it overwhelmingly robust and adaptable.
  • The cloud option cuts acquisition costs by more than half in terms of overheads as compared to on-premise installations.
  • You now don't need to be an Oracle forms developer to be able to customize this powerful tool.
  • It has a fantastic and user friendly GUI.
  • For extremely large databases, data pulling tends to take awhile longer than expected.
  • It is already affordable but we could all use better discounts for the complete edition.

  • OBIEE does the ad-hoc query very well. as long as the data is governed, the ad-hoc query is a robust and heavily used feature.
  • OBIEE has one of the best dashboard feature in enterprise level reporting.
  • It has a robust feature for the analytics and data analysis.
  • If scorecards are designed and implemented properly, OBIEE can become every department's go-to tool for reporting.
  • It is expensive to implement.
  • It is time consuming to implement.
  • The learning curve is not as flat as some of the other products in the market for general users.

  • Oracle helps with easy customization of reports.
  • It helps with the creation of dashboards and the integration of different data sources.
  • Oracle BI was a package used for multiple users across our organization - publishing and distributing reports was a breeze.
  • The tool requires coding and training.
  • The UI is not as intuitive as it should be - there can be improvements to make the reports sharp.
  • The mobile experience should be in-built and automated. The plugins should be available so that the primary focus will be left on reports.

  • The visualizations produced by Oracle BI Foundation are fairly good.
  • Oracle BI Foundation Suites is easy to use.
  • The software is relatively straight-forward is collaborating with others.
  • Although the visualizations are decent, they are nowhere near as nice as the charts produced by Tableau and other BI software tools.
  • Because Oracle BI Foundation Suite is relatively less well-known, finding help online is not as easy as other BI tools.
  • The BI Foundation Suite offers some analytics but is not as advanced as other tools in machine learning, and other analytics processes.

  • One of the best features of this new software tool is its ability to generate pixel-perfect reports and data visualizations.
  • We also have fully customizable, dynamic dashboards that can be quickly shared or embedded in different reports as well.
  • The product is fairly expensive and due to its complexity, a vendor supported implementation is generally necessitated, thereby driving the costs even higher.
  • Collaboration and version controlling features require more work.

  • Can create pixel-perfect reports for mobile phone usage as well.
  • It has best in its class integration capabilities with a wide multitude of software tools and middleware components.
  • Oracle BI has support for intelligent dashboards that can be customized for individual users.
  • Real-time report collaboration features are lacking in this software.
  • Due to the complexity of the software product and insufficient community user support groups, a vendor implementation became necessary for our case.

  • Ease of development and quick turnouts as the build is easier compared to some other BI tools for both reporting developers as well as the power users. The RPD development is comparatively easier to build for star schemas and also the subject areas are easier to use by the power users.
  • Easy integration of Mobile BI interface and sharing features in the same layer.
  • Easy integration of other functionality like MapViewer. Multi database type integration is enabled which is not really a distinctive feature in market, but has been improved a lot in OBIEE now.
  • Oracle BI suite needs to overhaul the visualization features as well as the look and feel to improve the ease of use for audience which is familiar with new java based tools.
  • The knowledge base available on Oracle repository or forum needs to be more relevant and updated .
  • They need to keep updating their drivers list or integration with other databases or blending tools/ MDX sources. This is one of the difficulties we faced, causing development cost and time to market impacted.

  • Can be used by business folk as well, without any in-depth knowledge of writing queries.
  • Automation of a lot of functions makes it very handy to avoid heavy mechanical tasks.
  • Offers great level of control in terms of data access and restrictions.
  • Provides diverse scheduling options - time triggered, event triggered, data dependent, etc.
  • Some issues that require the assistance of support at Oracle can be time-consuming and difficult to solve.
  • Upgrade from 10g to 11g has made the OBI Foundation Suite very performance intensive. Requires much better hardware support now.
  • Initial setup is not as straightforward as that of previous versions.

  • It's easy to integrate OBIEE & BI Publisher and that provides the flexibility to use BI Publisher for report template building based out of OBIEE Model.

  • Analyze information at different levels of aggregation.
  • Graphs and charts are easily produced.
  • It is very nice to organize the screen with different views of the same information, all with common parameters. So you can analyze related information from many point of view, all in the same page.
  • It is very flexible to add fields to the report, to change orders, to transform a column into a parameter and vice versa.
  • I think it should evolve in its graphic capabilities to compete more strongly with other market tools.
  • It has good capabilities to integrate maps with information. However, this feature is sold separately, and is quite expensive. That's why, even when we need it, we decided not to use it.
  • In South America there are many resources that really dominate the tool. For this reason, or you end up paying very expensive values ​​for resources, or you end up working with consultants with knowledge of other tools. This in general allows us to develop the models that are needed, but we are definitely not making the most of all the capabilities.

  • Middle layer where we can model data for any complex requirement. On presentation layer, we can make it very business friendly.
  • Very powerful capability and even customization by languages/scripts is available.
  • Data Security and Object security are very strong. It is provided various [types of] granularity.
  • Formatting and look & feel is not so great for default development unless you make efforts on it.
  • For simple things or quick developments, it takes considerable efforts to bring it completion from end to end.

  • It allows easy extension of reports from simple to complex dashboards
  • The tool goes well with Oracle DB and has great performance
  • Since the base is built on Java, it is supported to run on different platforms and portable devices
  • The tool does not support all the external databases, just works perfect with Oracle DB and few others
  • Since it is based to run on JVM, there are few new systems that has stopped using JVM and has switched to ajax and other platforms. Hence the right plugins are required to be installed in addition
  • The tool is not easy to use. A new user can not work on it unless trained or is highly techy person.

  • With a little guidance, ease of use
  • Great database management system with just the right amount of options (scalability)
  • Create dashboards for various types of users
  • Can be overwhelming to use at first, but any report-writer would suggest to download data dictionaries first to locate fields and prompts that would ordinarily be hard to find
