In this background article, we give a comprehensive overview of our 100% vendor-independent BI & Analytics survey about the software vendor Oracle and its product range (such as Oracle Database, Oracle Essbase, and OBIEE). Oracle BI & Analytics scores better in our survey than Tableau but slightly worse than IBM. Of all the categories in our study, Oracle scored the highest on BI infrastructure and received the least credits in self-service BI. We have been able to establish this objectively. Within the context of BI & Analytics, we have put together the main advantages and disadvantages of Oracle Analytics, and group them by component (business intelligence, big data, Artificial Intelligence, and data science). We also point out the strengths of key products such as Oracle Database, Oracle Essbase, and OBIEE et cetera.

How does Oracle BI & Analytics score on different criteria?

In our study, we also investigated the different products of Oracle BI & Analytics software. We examined no less than 720 aspects. The figure below shows the strengths and weaknesses of Oracle Analytics, in general terms. Please note that Passionned Group is 100% independent of the suppliers in the research. We do not sell licenses, we do not make deals or have any legal ties to the vendor. Among other things, we help and advise companies in the proper selection of BI tooling.

What are the licensing costs of Oracle Database, Oracle Essbase, and OBIEE?

It is difficult to determine exactly what a license of Oracle Database, Oracle Essbase, and OBIEE costs because it depends on the country, the number of users (also consider the amount of CPUs for server versions), the connectors to data sources, and at what point in the year you request a quote. And before the end of a fiscal quarter of Oracle, you may be able to look forward to a decent discount. In addition, nowadays it is recommended that you run the software in the cloud, you only pay for the actual use. The purchase cost of Oracle Database, Oracle Essbase, and OBIEE may not be the most important costs, but maintenance and support of course do limit your future investment scope.

What makes Oracle BI & Analytics unique?

In our study, we see that Oracle in the field of BI & Analytics software has a number of specific features and thus differentiates itself from the competition. This makes Oracle Analytics more or less unique: ring graphs, enterprise decision management, incremental snapshots, multidimensional models, and real-time data warehousing.

The advantages and disadvantages of Oracle Analytics
