Oracle BI EE

Pros

The product has evolved quite nicely with the customer demands and the developing technologies. From a designer and administrator point of view, the key benefits are the variety of components available for different tasks, e.g. BIPublisher, Data-visualization-desktop, Agents, Action framework and Interactive dashboards. There is a rich visualization library and the option to integrate with third party libraries as well.

Cons

When compared with other BI tools, OBIEE requires a significant infrastructure and detailed planning to implement and manage over time. That is true for the on-premise version. Not necessarily for the Cloud version, which is much more quick to setup and use.

Not my preferred data visualization tool

Pros

Because my organization stores data in other Oracle products, it made pulling our information into the queries very simple. Not much data manipulation was required.

Cons

Some queries can take long to run and do not come out in a very user friendly manner.

Easy to use Analytics Tool

Powerful analytic tool that can model any set of data you can think of!

Pros

I love how easy it is to integrate this with other products in the oracle suite. The dashboards are excellent and, being customizable, they let me have a host of options for data modelling. The options for visualizing data are excellent, and really add to the value when you consider all the capability this product has for reporting.

Cons

It can be annoying to update Java before the latest vendor patch will work. And, while I haven't experienced it, others on my team have reported browser issues, though that could have been due to their being lax on updates.

Oracle Business Intelligence a great tool for any enterprise sizes

I was involver in projects where OBIEE solution reporting needs for finantial enterprise, you can do a ODI integration for ETL solution to help data/information can be available in the way the thematic areas for reports pupulation needs.

Pros

Oracle Business Intelligence is a kind of scalable solution, you can start from a suit module and then scalate to add more components.

It provides a relative easy to use GUI for auto-service analysis and with the last OBIEE versions you can get the last graphs and animations.

Im my experience migrations from previous versions is relative easy to perform, Oracle brings good documentation about the proccess and a lot of blogs about any issues on the process.

The main products I used on this tools are:
* Interactive Dashboards: brings analytics solution for managers, we can put on dashboards any kind of analysis, reports, graphs, including geo-locations.
* OBIP: Publisher offers a strong reporting tool, for formatted documents, and the hability to exports to a variety of formats such pdf, word, xml, html, etc.
* Ad-hoc querys: a good solution for auto-services, managers as ends users can build their own answers for business/operative questions, just pulling the business variables and combining graphs and customs in a intuitive tool.
* Delivers: helps to schedule analysis, alerts and delivers content to filter configured targets.

Cons

Oracle bring a complete tool, the cons is just limitated to improve user experiencie when working with time-dimensions, Oracle can work in to reduce the effort for this.

Deployed in addition to Oracle Business Suite for Global reporting

Pros

A lot of tools to build environments and dashboards for users. Require an acceptable IT support without creating a botleneck when you need adjustment. We deployed it in replacement of BUsiness Objects where the environment and price became not acceptable

Cons

Complex to design and deploy if your company has a complex structure across multiple geographies and multiple currencies

Oracle Business Intelligence

Excellent reporting capabilities and polished data visualization.

Pros

The interface is easy to use and reports are very easy to schedule. The variety and quality of data visualization options add fantastic value for an already great product.

Cons

Vendor patches necessitated Java updates more often than I would expect out of the product. There were a few browser compatibility issues (though Internet Explorer worked fine).
