    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

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Good product potential which has been assimilated and developed into Oracle stack.

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality
    Quality
    Support
    Value for Money

    Works well with Oracle products due to effort made to assimilate into the Oracle stack. Graphical display on desktops to mobile devices and automated scheduled reporting provide ability to push and pull information via appropriate mediums for users.

    Pros

    Graphical interfaces and ability to sit above multi-faceted cubes can produce strong reporting and dissection opportunities to mine and exploit data.
    Much of the Oracle BI is from third party acquisition (e.g. Hyperion), and while this has it's own issues, it does provide opportunities where it can interface across the Oracle family of products and be interfaced with Oracle, PeopleSoft and JD Edwards ERP. Such capability supports large enterprises that may have a mix of Oracle Financials and PeopleSoft HR (utilising specific strengths of each product set) where underlying cubes of data can mix, match, and slice data to inform and forecast effect and impacts.
    Certainly strides have been made in the graphical interfaces of the Oracle BI stack, from display on desktops, to reporting, and more recently mobile devices. Display of information is relative to the form factor, relatively responsive (dependent on comm. links) and can be paired with scheduling tools for automated notifications and reporting.
    This has advantages of not only ad-hoc reporting for users, but can also simplify regular reporting cycles such as month and quarterly end reporting.

    Cons

    Overheads of management of underlying cubes can be troublesome due to the nature of products in the Oracle suite. Due to the acquisition of rival or complimentary products from other vendors and partial assimilation into the Oracle stack, and a reliance on old code as the base level of many Oracle products (including PeopleSoft); a strong knowledge of tables and inter-relationships is imperative. unfortunately in my experience a number of clients will also customise tables and fields which can further complicate maintenance and understanding.
    Creating an Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) for your BI, whether Oracle or other products, to inform your Configuration Management Data Base (CMDB) can be most beneficial over the life cycle of products and BI overlays.
    Due to the nature/origin of the Oracle technology stack, the major drawback is often the need to employ (directly or via third party) specialists to configure, manage and maintain the BI stack. This is not just for knowledge or changes needed to BI to ensure effective operation, but also where institutional knowledge is required in the configuration and scripting required to ensure that source tables are appropriate and populated to support the BI outcomes desired.

    Cons

    It would have been nice if it has inbuilt functions for arithmetic operations, data functions and oracle functions. Conditional blocks and rendering pages based on the variables are not easy.

    Pros

    The ease of use to run reports from large Remedy data sets. It allows me to process large amounts of data in very little time and then extract to CSV files to analyse in more powerful tools such as QlikView.

    Cons

    It isn't as good as QlikView. The dashboards OBI produces are useful but not as easy to adapt and personalise.
