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.

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).

i stress-tested this software to understand its peculiarities to sell it to customers

It is easy to analyze the reports thanks to its ability to show the large amount of data in an attractive way

Pros

Integrates completely with the rest of the oracle suite, excellent possibility to automate schedules for notifications and static reporting (by sending them via email). Relatively easy to create data clouds, and model them. Beautiful dashboards, interactive and easy to customize. It is easy to administer the permissions and to create access groups for consulting the analysis

Cons

High initial cost, but turns into an excellent investment. Requires training sessions to be used independently (especially on the back end developer side that user, front end). The language used to connect all data sources is not very easy, not suitable for small and medium-sized businesses. It isn't as good as QlikView how about upgrade, OBI it is not easy to update.

Oracle Business Intelligence. The largest and most complete tool for data analysis.

Pros

Software adapted to the basic needs of storage and qualitative and quantitative analysis of data. The analytical extraction applied to data masses, in Oracle BI is simple, its options are not very complex.

Cons

When you start the Oracle BI application, different customization options are presented. You must have a high degree of administration of the tool to extract its greatest potential, and for that you can spend a lot of time.

This powerful tool allows you to monitor business performance.

The benefit is the help in extracting information from the company for strategic purposes.

Pros

With the implementation of Oracle BI the company data can be used to obtain a competitive advantage, thanks to the extraction algorithms that apply to the database.
In addition to the above, this tool offers us the power of the real information of the company and gives the opportunity to react more quickly to market changes.

Cons

It only offers open integration with the rest of the product portfolio of the ORACLE company.
The cost of the investment is high, however the business tool is so efficient that the return on
investment will be quick thanks to the many benefits it offers.
