Maurice Berdugo, Managing Partner at BP Analytics:
The best business intelligence tool in my opinion is Oracle’s OBIEE tool. It has a huge customer base, growing in popularity and is backed by Oracle that is investing heavily in the product.
Why I like the product is that it is:
- Extremely Flexible
- Has a tool for report writing and Dashboards
- Has a much better “bug reporting” system than other BI tools.
- You can set Log Levels and it will show you exactly where the problem is in the code.
- Adding complex formulas can be done at the RPD layer and you don’t have to be a coder for that.
- There are bug fixes and updates every month or so..so the tool is getting better and better
- Costs the same or maybe even a drop less then Cognos/BO
