"Detailed reports for an effective data analysis"

What do you like best?

Its functionality is fluid, it has very complete tools that are quite easy to handle. Through it I can analyze different data coming from all the reports that it throws. I like that I can see all the results graphically and quite visually, and thanks to this, I have made the sales arrangements in a much simpler way.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that there are some tools that I can not manage, it has been difficult for me to be able to customize and configure everything according to my criteria, customer service has helped me but I still can not solve the problem at all. I would like this small inconvenience to be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Oracle BI Publisher uses an SQL language, which offers the possibility to see everything in a very graphic way, working fluidly with high effectiveness in all the reports. However, I recommend having people specialized in SQL so that everything is much simpler in this way. Try it.

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

Thanks to this software, its incredible functionality and all the detailed reports it provides us, we have improved sales analysis, now we manage a better organization of work and business processes are much faster and more efficient.

"excelent report writing and export capabilities"

able to build reports graphically or using SQL, export results and ibot feature is great for exception reporting emailed to specific users.

get your data table right during setup and document where the fields are mapped to.

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

"This product is used by my organization i"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that it is much easier to manipulate using Rich Text Forms and MS Word. It is very easy to pull items from the database tables and it is easy to deploy forms and reports.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the formatting within the actual database when you are trying to customize existing forms. It makes it really hard.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely make sure that the administrator receives training. It is very hard to administer the product. I would also consider training the users that actually develop the forms and reports and make sure that they have sql training.

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

I'm trying to resolve client issues for reporting and customizing forms that are utilized on a daily basis.
