With the introduction of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus, Oracle customers now have a world-class reporting, analytics and data integration platform that can be used to report against data from both Oracle and non-Oracle applications and databases. Users of Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer now have the opportunity to connect Discoverer to this new toolset to take advantage of the interactive dashboards, data integration, alerting and report distribution features of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus, or can migrate their workbooks and End User Layer to work directly with Oracle’s new business intelligence toolset.

Discoverer to Oracle BI Suite Enterprise Edition Consulting Services

Rittman Mead Consulting have been at the forefront of the adoption of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus, and our team have many years of experience in developing solutions using Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer. If you are a Discoverer customer looking to take advantage of these new business intelligence tools and wish to preserve your investment in Discoverer, we can work with you to leverage your existing reports and business metadata and help make the adoption of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus simple and straightforward.

Why Migrate to, or Interoperate With, Oracle BI Suite Enterprise Edition?

Moving to Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus offers many benefits to your organization, whether you migrate completely or use the platform alongside Discoverer. Oracle Business Intelligence Delivers, the alerting and distribution tool provided with Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus gives you the ability to set thresholds, build workflows and generate alerts based on KPIs and conditions you and your users can set.

Oracle Business Intelligence Interactive Dashboards provides a dynamic HTML thin-client reporting environment that brings together reports created using Oracle Business Intelligence Answers, Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer and Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher, whilst the Oracle Business Intelligence Server that powers Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus gives you the ability to bring data together from relational and OLAP data sources and present it to users using a common enterprise information model. Moreover, Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus is the strategic direction for reporting and analysis for Oracle’s customers, and will be at the heart of Oracle’s next-generation “Fusion” line-up of applications and middleware tools.

What Can Rittman Mead Consulting Do For You?

Depending on whether you wish to have Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer work together with Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition tools such as Oracle Business Intelligence Delivers, Oracle Business Intelligence Interactive Dashboards and Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher, whether you wish to migrate directly to these tools, or more likely do a bit of both, we can help you with expert consulting services, provision of migration utilities and best practices, and training and coaching for your team for the adoption of this new technology. We can either manage the whole process for you, or just provide consulting and training as needed to supplement the skills of your team.

What Does the Work Involve?

Interoperability of Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer with the Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus toolset is straightforward to set up but will require training for your team on how best to utilize the new capabilities. A typical engagement to initially implement Oracle Business Intelligence Delivers (when available) and Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher alongside Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer would take no more than a week, and we can work with you after the initial implementation to optimize the configuration of the Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus platform and to make full use of the capabilities of the new tools.

For migrations from Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer to Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus, the work of course will depend on scope but will be accelerated by the use of a migration utility to create the “first cut” of the metadata repository and Answers requests. Following this, we will work with you to perform any manual steps required, make use of the features provided by Oracle Business Intelligence Interactive Dashboards, Oracle Business Intelligence Delivers and offline analysis, and to work with your development team and end-users to help them make the most of the functionality provided by Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus.
