...for Business Analytics

The Business Analytics software (Business Intelligence tools and technology) by Oracle provides a variety of functions for reporting, ad hoc analysis, multidimensional online analytical (OLAP), scorecards, modeling and forecasting on the basis of an integrated, unified infrastructure. The study provides extensive insights for all managers at each location. Oracle BI is a consistent browser-based software that is preconfigured as a complete solution Suites available for different applications.

We are working primarily with the following components:
  • Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (OBIP)
  • Oracle Business Intelligence Standard Edition One (OBI SE One)
  • Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition Plus (OBI EE)
  • Oracle Essbase
  • Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite (OBI FS)
  • Oracle Hyperion Planning (OHP)

Using Oracle BI Publisher (OBIP) you can create standard reports that are automatically generated, analyzed, and published in all popular formats. The focus is not on-line analysis, but the report document or the classic paper report in the foreground. Reports can be generated and distributed pixel-perfect, no matter what graphical complexity is desired. The tool offers precise control over the report content and layout that are completely decoupled from each other. For the layout design, it is a Web-based layout editor or plug-ins for popular Office products (Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Adobe Acrobat).

Licensing conditions:

The BI Publisher is included as a component in the BI products, but can also be licensed separately. The number of licensed processors is determined from the number of processor cores and a processor factor. The minimum is 50 users per processor licensing under the license Named User Plus metric.

The Oracle Business Intelligence Standard Edition One (OBI SE One) is an affordable BI solution for up to 50 users which is characterized by rapid installation and easy configuration. Their components allow ad-hoc analysis, and the central provision of information on dashboards and creating print-ready reports. OBI SE One provides a complete BI solution based on the Oracle BI Enterprise technology.

The OBI SE One can also be used as an ideal entry-level solution, which is expanded in a later expansion of the number of users or functionality by upgrading to Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition.

Elements:

BI Server: This core software of Oracle BI collects and concentrates the source data and provides them in a unified technical vision for evaluation. The system also handles foreign-Oracle database systems, Microsoft Excel and many others.

BI Interactive Dashboard: Performance indicators and reports are processed and displayed graphically using a Web browser. Dashboards with many analysis functions such as filters and regulators can be equipped and thus developed into full-blown analysis applications.

BI Answers: This module is used for ad hoc query and analysis and the preparation of reports for dashboards. Users can fold independently, easily and quickly create their own queries, analyze the results and navigate, and they finally make it available to others.

BI Publisher: Pixel-perfect reports and documents for Web-based publications of all kinds can be created, managed and distributed.

Oracle Warehouse Builder (OWB): The OWB is an integrated graphical tool for data integration and source for the creation of Data Warehouses and with a basic functionality.

Oracle Datenbank Standard Edition One: The database contained in OBI SE One is the foundation for the storage of the warehouse data.

Licensing conditions:

  • server computer with a maximum of 2 sockets, ie slots for processors
  • only user-based licensing of at least 5 and up to 50 users

The Oracle BI Suite Enterprise Edition Plus (OBI EE) is designed for enterprise-wide deployment and extends the functionality of the BI Standard Edition One with functionalities for office integration, automated alerts, location intelligence, and process integration.

BI Enterprise Reporting: Using Oracle BI Publisher can be created, managed and distributed pixel-perfect reports and documents for publications of all kinds web-based.

Oracle Warehouse Builder (OWB): The OWB is an integrated graphical tool for data integration and sources for the creation of Data Warehouses and with a basic functionality.

Proactive Detection and Alert (Delivers): Using Oracle BI Delivers intelligent alarm can be created agents that transmit the user's time-and performance-related messages on different devices (e.g. Email, SMS, etc.) or to trigger a workflow for dependent tasks.

Actionable Intelligence: The Action Framework provides the ability to initiate business processes right from BI dashboards and reports.

Microsoft-Office-Integration: In addition to the export functionality included in Oracle BI basic scope can be accessed from the Office interface with the Office plug-in analyzes prepared directly and without BI tools. But they can also be embedded in Microsoft PowerPoint, Word and Excel documents.

Spatial Intelligence (MapViewer): This component allows users to visualize geo-referenceable analyzing data on maps.

Licensing conditions:

The licensing can be hardware dependent on processor basis (for an unlimited number of users) or on the number of users (Named User Plus). The license metric Named User Plus licensing is a minimum of 25 users per processor Oracle.

In addition, the Oracle Business Intelligence Mobile Option for mobile BI can be licensed. For mobile devices the full spectrum of BI functionality without changes to existing dashboards and reports is available.

Scorecard and Strategy Management (OSSM) is another option to define and refine strategic business objectives and their reduction with key performance indicators (KPI). OSSM is thus another OBI EE client specifically for indicators based performance measurement.

Oracle Essbase is the industry-leading OLAP (online analytical processing) server and is ideal for complex analyzes. Here the users have the choice between 350 models and codes that can be implemented quickly and efficiently. Oracle Essbase enables in particular the modeling of planning processes, the creation of scenarios for 'What', 'if' analysis and the implementation of prediction and forecasting systems.

Furthermore, the creation of hybrid BI architectures is possible: Oracle BI allows completely transparent to multidimensional data analysis by logically merging Essbase multidimensional sources with relational data in a Data Warehouse.

Licensing conditions:

The number of licensed processors is determined from the number of processor cores and a processor factor. The minimum licensing is 4 processors or 25 users per processor license for Named User Plus metric.

The Oracle BI Foundation Suite extends the Oracle BI Suite Enterprise Edition to components for multidimensional data analysis, mobile Business Intelligence and strategic management. It represents the most comprehensive license package in the context of Oracle Business Intelligence and includes all the necessary tools for an enterprise-wide reporting.

Elements:

Oracle BI Suite Enterprise Edition Plus: Includes the tools for an enterprise-wide Business Intelligence. Based on a unified information model and a rich range of features for visualizing information to locate and to interact, ad-hoc analyzes, standard analyzes and reports can be realized.
