"Excellent Payout for Sound Business Decisions"

What do you like best?

The easily developable visual aids to back up the data queries is the most useful tool from this software. Being able to print data in a variety of easily accessible graphs separates this software from others use in the past or current competing. It is generally easy to use, yet it definitely not starter software.

What do you dislike?

The delay and lack in their customer service is a major downside to this software. If your group encounters any glitches or issues, you will likely need IT to solve it, because customer service will typically have you waiting longer that you'd expect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared for difficulty accessing results from customer service team

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to gain very quick access to the visuals in the boardroom is the greatest benefit- simple or complex questions can be quickly answered and demonstrated to make more sound decisions on actions with a set or subset of customers- sometimes quick decisions are needed and this software allows us to be informed at a moment's notice- a huge advantage

"imprescindible si te dedicas a actividades de big data"

What do you like best?

Sin el menor género de dudas es uno de los programas imprescindibles si manejas una gran cantidad de datos (big data), si bien hay múltiples aspectos que pueden ser igualmente tratados por este programa. De esta manera puedo decir que ofrece un amplio abanico de prestaciones a escaso precio. Permite crear informes interactivos, paneles y cuadros de mando en entorno OLAP. Tiene un periodo de prueba inicial muy atractivo que permite demostrar de forma real si la aplicación encaja en nuestra busqueda

What do you dislike?

al principio resulta un poco complicado de manejar debido a todas las funcionalidades que posee, si bien pasado un tiempo es bastante sencillo de manejar. Quizás debiera ser algo más intuitivo, facilitando una ayuda más extensa para todas aquellas personas que están iniciándose en su uso y no saben como realizar numerosas prestaciones. Es recomendable que los participantes de Oracle Business Intelligence tengan conocimiento de los siguientes temas: SQL a nivel básico, diseño de almacenes de datos, diseño de bases de datos, modelado dimensional.

"Oracle As A Business Partner"

What do you like best?

Oracle has been great to work with. As a partner with Oracle, we have access to additional data within Facebook to use in our advertising campaigns. When we get a new client and create a new ad account, it is as simple as emailing our contact at Oracle and them submitting the account for additional data. Then BOOM, everything we need is there. The best part is, it makes our advertising that much more specific and allows us to hit all the right people.

What do you dislike?

We recently worked with Oracle to create a case study and it seemed very simple. It did not include as much information as we would have liked and I'm not sure if it was really published anywhere. So that was a little disappointing; but still nice to have a case study with them!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Set up an in-person meeting with the Oracle team. It is nice to get to know them on a personal and professional level because it makes it easier to have a proper partnership. They are very intelligent and there is so much they are able to help with.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By partnering with Oracle for additional data, we have a lot of new opportunities and ways to target consumers. Our ads can be a lot more specific based on users' shopper profiles and interests, as well as, behaviors. It really gives us the upper hand!

"Nice to compile everything together"

What do you like best?

I found that with the oracle intelligence Discoverer I was really able to have all of my contracts organized for my vendors and I have everything in one place easy to locate very convenient for keeping all of my bills and sub contracts together

What do you dislike?

They need to try to develop reports to tie different tables together. Currently, to pull the data into one nice, neat report takes a more advanced technically-minded person to develop. We would, as the end user, like to be able to have a little bit more ease in compiling these reports,. There are other technologies out there which we are actively pursuing. It would be nicer had we had a little bit more latitude on developing reports on our own

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I believe the best part about it was the organization I had regarding sub contracts with all of my vendors and different client files from different caseloads since I'm I practice we practice all types of why it's hard to keep organized which leads go with criminal which leads go with bankruptcy and so on and so forth so having a system where everything can be organized is very beneficial

"Well suited for a company that is working with a lot of data"

What do you like best?

Discoverer allows for the registering of PL/SQL functions for easily adding functionality to the reporting abilities and accessing data is very fast even with larger data sets!

What do you dislike?

Necessary to have a "Discoverer manager" who organizes the data and allots access to Discoverer, which requires a company to have someone on staff who is database savv; the creation of calculations can be difficult for end users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Empowering the application users to create and run their own reports by developing a robust reporting structure has enabled application users to get the data they need when they need it without waiting on requests to the IT department. Discoverer is also used by Audit and Tax to pull data to support filings and respond to data requests.

"Go to database management tool"

What do you like best?

Full suite of products, ranging from administrator to the end user

What do you dislike?

Needs a little more advanced know-how than you'd expect and is pricey

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely get some one who has technical know how or obtain training to make full use of BI Discoverer, otherwise its full benefits are hard to realize. More technical backgrounds will certainly come in handy while using this tool as its written in Java!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use discoverer to solve my organization's data management streamlining problems. We switched from another software into this one, and given the length and breadth of the BI Discoverer, we've been able to do much more. The tool is very streamlined and querying is much easier. My main business problem that I have been able to smoothen out with BI Discoverer is invoicing. My company is an established albeit niche one. We have a weekly roll out of invoices with vendors and end users, which has become much easier to handle with the BI Discoverer

"La puerta de enlace para la gestión de bases de datos"

What do you like best?

SQL amigable que permite una rápida adopción para aquellos usuarios que saben escribir en SQL. Esto hace que la integración con otros programas sea mucho más fácil.

El acceso a los datos es muy rápido incluso con conjuntos de datos más grandes.

El diseño es limpio y organizado de forma similar a una hoja de cálculo, lo que facilita la visualización y el análisis de los datos.

What do you dislike?

A veces puede ser un poco demasiado rudimentario y rígido, no permitiendo a los usuarios que pueden manejar bases de datos personalizar otros informes.

Es necesario contar con un "gestor de Discoverer" que organice los datos y asigne el acceso a Discoverer, lo que requiere que la empresa cuente con alguien que conozca la base de datos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Discoverer es definitivamente adecuado para una empresa que está trabajando con una gran cantidad de datos, pero no tiene una gran base de datos de un equipo bien informado. Permite la gestión básica de la base de datos al tiempo que permite a los usuarios acceder a los datos de forma sencilla y eficiente. Los informes son fáciles de hacer y, una vez más, no requieren mucho conocimiento de bases de datos. Si está buscando una personalización más profunda y múltiples fuentes de datos de varios proveedores, sin embargo, es posible que desee buscar una plataforma más robusta.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

La gestión de las bases de datos, el rápido acceso a ellas, convierte el trabajo en eficiencia, productividad, que es lo que buscan todas las empresas.

"I use OBI to review financials, business performance, and dashboards"

What do you like best?

OBI can literally do just about anything. From managing payroll, financial statements, employee benefit costs, hourly payroll, business planning, asset management, and more. that is really the benefit of using OBI. They really do provide a capability of solving a lot of problems for businesses. The dashboards also provide some incite and real time data.

What do you dislike?

The man pain point I have today is creating a dashboard for my business. I currently run a sales operation and I need real time data for my team. However, because OBI can do everything. They are not able to do any one thing really well. That is really what drives me crazy. Also, the person who manages the dashboards is a terrible designer. I would love to have some premade graphs or metrics which anyone can update. That is the benefit of using a firm who specializes in dashboards... anyone can update them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have an experienced IT team to manage this software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

However, because OBI can do everything. They are not able to do any one thing really well. Again, I am very frustrated there is not a simple way to update and develop dashboards. Unless you know SQL you are not able to really do anything. And, you have to rely on your IT department in order to actually get anything done. OBI does provide some great incite for business owners to consolidate key data and all of the main sources of data for a company and give that to their employees.

"It is a good product"

What do you like best?

I was one of tho people who knew how to manage and work with databases at my last place of employment. WE used Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer because it was easy for us to use and we didn't have to really know how to work in a database. each iof us could access the data and generate reports without accessing the actual database.

i liked that is was:

SQL friendly . This makes integration with other programs much easier.

Accessing data is very fast .

layout is clean and organized .

What do you dislike?

Mobile tools for report delivery and system maintenance would enhance usability.

Recommendations to others considering the product

All-in-all, a powerful and flexible tool that non-data people can become power users with varied levels of complexity.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
