I have been using it only for reporting. I am trying to conduct some usage regarding the self-service BI, however, I haven't been able to implement it in that way. What I have been using is only BI reporting.

We've selected Oracle Analytics Cloud as our visualization tool, and its use case is for visualization, particularly because we already have an ERP system, and we also have a lot of data across different functions, for example, in finance and sales.

Our customers use Analytics Cloud, they are always E-Business Suite customers. The product is generally used for transactional data because for EBS there is no discovery support. We build Analytics on-premise or on cloud and use E-Business Suite for financials and logistics. All reports are developed using Oracle Analytics aside from the principal ones or standard reports coming from inside E-Business Suite. We generally work with enterprise size companies that use various analytics and reporting tools, not just Oracle Analytics. I'm a managing partner in a consulting firm and we are customers of Oracle.

This product is used for reporting and visualization. We are not using the latest version but rather, one version back.

Oracle OBIEE is designed to be relatively easy to set up and has a helpful customer support staff at the ready to assist customers. These are two attributes that make this system quite valuable. OBIEE is a program which is best equipped to serve larger companies that require a more expensive, higher-level, and more versatile type of solution. Companies of the type that seek out Oracle’s OBIEE network are going to want to minimize costs in the setup. Its straightforwardness is definitely something that large organizations are going to insist upon in such an important aspect of their business. Once that has been achieved, it would be in their best interests to have a dedicated team to help troubleshoot problems should it be necessary. Even though the support team is a separate cost. their quality of service may well be worth it. They work quickly and are able to tackle most problems that arise. OBIEE has a high level of flexibility because it can operate on the cloud. Additionally, it is relatively user-friendly. There are fewer log-in requirements in place here than there are with other similar systems. This allows for users to have greater ease of access to the system at all times. Manipulation of the system can be done with a certain ease that may not necessarily be true of something like Oracle’s Analytics Cloud. Users have the ability to create new dashboards for monitoring data without a high level of hassle. It is significant that this system can be wielded so easily. Oracle’s Analytics Cloud possesses many tools and dashboards that aid in the analysis of business-related data. Couple this with its affordability and Oracle’s Analytics Cloud is an excellent system. However, the program’s interfaces require improvement. Additionally, Analytics Cloud lacks built-in memory operations like cookies, which can make using it a bit more difficult. Conclusion: If you are a large company with a budget to match, then OBIEE will probably be a better choice for you than Analytics Cloud. However, overall Analytics Cloud offers an excellent program for a lesser cost than OBIEE. I would say that Analytics Cloud is the more easily accessible and useful product for the majority of companies.

Is it required in your company to conduct an enterprise architecture review before purchasing a business intelligence tool? What are the common materials you use in the review? Do you have any tips or advice for the community? Any pitfalls to watch out for?

I am beginning a BI review right now. I have the same questions so will be anxious to see how this is answered.

Hi - That is best practice is to have a architecture review however, everything is online to purchase if you would like to buy without this step. Common Material we use to review would be Diagrams based off the customers environment, best practices of customers we have successfully deployed with. Tips--> I would make sure to have a sound understanding of your business, people and process prior to engaging in BI tool. Really understand your organization goals for now and future. Unfortunately many do not encompass future and only right now and then end up spending a lot of $$ later to re-implement/architect because their short term goals were price motivated. Ends up hurting you later if you do not plan for future.
