Multi-layered Abstraction
Separation of physical, logical and presentation layers Logical modeling builds upon complex physical data structures Logical model independent of physical data sources, i.e. can be remapped to another data source quickly

Oracle BI Enterprise Edition
Enables Consistency, Security, Reuse, Flexibility
Presentation Layer • User roles, preferences • Simplified view • Logical SQL interface Semantic Object Layer • Dimensions • Hierarchies • Measures • Calculations • Aggregation Rules • Time Series Physical Layer • Map Physical Data • Connections • Schema

Role-based views of the information Consistent definition of business measures, metrics, calculations Model once, deploy anywhere Across any data source!!!

Oracle BI Enterprise Edition

OBI EE: Delivering Value in the Real World

Delivering Value – a Real World Example
CLIENT PROFILE Global solutions provider of computer products and services that guarantee continuously available processing for applications INDUSTRY Hi-Tech / Communications SIZE $ 250M Revenue ~1,000 Employees PAIN POINTS Impossible to create a 360 view of customers for analysis Single reports from Oracle unable to meet the business need Extensive use of Excel to merge data from multiple sources and present information As data increased, uncertainty of data validity and “True Source” of data also increased Abstracting reporting metrics from the underlying transactional data

ORACLE FOOTPRINT Since late-1990’s, Oracle EBusiness 10.7

Delivering Value – a Real World Example
SOLUTION FOOTPRINT Built a financial data mart Secured end user access to a GUI front-end for easy access to standard reports and ad hoc reporting capabilities Oracle BI components:
– Oracle Warehouse Builder (ETL) – Oracle BI Server – Oracle BI Answers

WHY OBI?

– Oracle BI Dashboards

Reporting capabilities met or exceeded all requirement’s Group sharing by end-user Ease of creating Dashboards Leveraged existing Oracle skill sets Future leveraging of Oracle 11i and Business Process Management Single Vendor Competitive Pricing

Delivering Value – a Real World Example
KEY DIFFERENTIATORS Immediate comparison of Actual vs. Forecast data in a single report
– Old method: Several Business Object/Excel iterations spanning hours.

Immediate fiscal year trend analysis
– Old method: 10+ hour query processing

Users have easy to navigate front-end (BI Answers) and easy to understand presentation model of the data mart (via BI Server). Confidence in the integrity of report data IT control of end user access to data through BI Server ETL programs easily maintainable through the OWB interface.
