Oracle BI, Oracle OLAP, Essbase: The Benefits and Cost of Openness
Topic: Business Intelligence Files

Subtopic: Kaleidoscope 2008

Companies with heterogeneous environments need to analyze data from multiple sources, through multiple application servers, in multiple presentation environments. The "hot pluggable" products work well for this need: Oracle Data Integrator, Essbase, Real-time Decisions, Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition, and BI Applications. But what if these needs are not paramount in your organization? You can use Oracle's traditional products: Oracle Warehouse Builder, the OLAP, Data Mining options to the Oracle Database, Oracle Business Intelligence Standard Edition, and Daily Business Intelligence. Come and learn which products are appropriate for your situation, how Oracle's acquisition strategy led to this situation, and how Oracle's product management structure propagates this situation. The session will especially focus on the differences between Essbase and the Oracle OLAP option—both very capable multi-dimensional databases, but with different goals.
