My company is what you would consider small about 200 + employees, but they have big expensive needs. BI Edition One allows us to get what we need without buying the whole cow [Enterprise]. If we every needed more, then we can upgrade without throwing out our initial investment. I won't go into all it does you can read the feature listings but suffice it to say if you use the PeopleSoft platform you will want this product. No more wasting time creating or generating reports for management. They can do for them selves and with a little training ad hoc reporting is at their finger tips. This leaves you with more time to work on leveraging all that you can from this wonderful robust platform.

Pros

1. Comprehensive BI functionality —
2. Flexible Interactive Dashboards
3. Highly customizeable reports
4. Self-service and ad hoc analysis,
5. Data integration with simple server administration

Cons

Cost - don't buy if you can't find a way to use it all. Its cheaper but not cheap, this platform is primarily for the PeopleSoft users its set to be of most use on that platform.

Power visual analytics for the entire organization.
Users could develop their own reports, dashboards instead of relying on IT.
Actionable business intelligence.
Boardroom ready reports.
Able to generate and analyze financial statements.

Pros

Oracle Business Intelligence is available in both on premise and cloud. It comes with in built adaptors for easy integration with various Enterprise products like SAP. It is tightly integrated with Oracle's products like Oracle EBusiness Suite, Peoplesoft, JD Edwards, Oracle Fusion Products, Hyperion etc.
For faster time to value, one can purchase Oracle Business Intelligence Applications which comes with commonly used dashboards, reports in various verticals like Financials, procurement, Manufacturing, Human capital management, Sales, CRM etc.
Oracle BI is tablet and mobile friendly. Oracle is investing heavily in Big data, in memory processing, voice enabled talk to your data, kind of cutting edge features.
In summary, the advantages of oracle cloud are,
Tight integration with all Oracle products
Availability of ready made reports, dashboards, analytics in form of OBIA ( oracle business intelligence applications ) which will save time and effort if you develop yourself.
Stunning and smart visualizations.
Improved user experience.
Secure sharing and collaboration.
Adaptive design for various devices like mobile,tablet etc.

Cons


Oracle has to improve on customer service. A service request with oracle may take long time to get resolved.
Integration of the customers in house products with the oracle dataware house may be a challenge.

Pros

Their customer support team is wonderful and very accessible. I like the user portal they have that allows you to get tech support but more importantly, allows you to speak with other customers of the software. The training they offer is also really helpful, as is the discount that they offer for training if you bundle it with other offers in a package.

Cons

It seems to be limited when you try to calculate percentages and rates and the training, while helpful, is definitely more complex (presumably for a more complex system).

We are able to charge fairly rates to our customers. They are happy with the reporting.

We can plan better and monitor better our business.

Pros

One version of truth . Share the same information trough the company is the key to start productive meetings.

Cons

It´s sometimes hard to add new information to the models. Sometimes the changes require too much IT work (building cubes). Data Visualization solve those problems partially.

Oracle is great in the sense that you can drill down and see almost anything you need to. It has the capacity to display a vast variety of information. There are very many filters that sometimes makes the ease of use a little difficult but once you figure that out, youre golden.

Pros

The accessibility of so much info and the ability to be able to drill down to specifics. You are able to view the data in a variety of ways which fit your needs.

Cons

Can sometime be difficult with navigation - lots of filters that sometimes make things confusing

I am going to be frank here, I hate OBIEE. I've spent hours configuring dashboards. It is very complicated from a user perspective, although you can change almost all the fonts and stuff like that. It's got all the features you want when it comes to some things, but then it doesn't do the most random things you would assume any modern BI platform could do. For instance, searching subsets of data is not easy. Creating / Saving ad hoc filters is impossible unless you create copies of dashboards.

This is very much a platform designed for IT people to administer, which is my IT group 'loves' this crap. But from a business user perspective it sucks.
