Oracle has announced the general availability of Oracle Business Intelligence Standard Edition One (Oracle Business Intelligence SE One), a complete, integrated business intelligence (BI) and data warehousing system that is packaged, pre-configured, and priced to meet the needs of small to medium-sized organisations and workgroups.
Oracle Business Intelligence SE One, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, features all of the core BI capabilities small to medium-sized organisations need including interactive dashboards, formatted reporting, ad hoc query and analysis, extract, transform and load (ETL) technology, as well as the world’s leading database, in a single, easy to install package.
“Oracle Business Intelligence SE One is the only end-to-end BI and data warehousing solution that is based on category-leading technology for every component, offering a complete and compelling solution at an attractive price,” says Paul Rodwick, Oracle vice-president: business intelligence. “The software offers small to medium sized organizations a proper infrastructure that will serve their immediate BI needs, yet easily scale and grow with their needs over time.”
Dan Vesset, vice-president: business analytics research at IDC, adds: “BI isn’t just for large organisations. In recent years, BI has grown across industries and organizations regardless the size of the industry or business. Small and medium sized organisations are turning to BI to gain efficiencies in selling to and servicing their customers, managing their financial performance, optimising their supply chains, and identifying opportunities for growth. Oracle Business Intelligence SE
One offers a comprehensive package of products and tools at a reasonable price.”
Oracle Business Intelligence SE One offers customers a BI foundation to deliver complete, relevant, and timely information for better decision-making across the organisation.
Built on enterprise-class software – Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition (EE) and Oracle Database – Oracle Business Intelligence SE One offers customers breadth and flexibility in addressing their BI needs, from simple operational reporting to a fully featured role-based dashboard, analysis, and data warehousing system.
Oracle enables emerging enterprises and organisations to upgrade to enterprise versions of the BI and database software to support increased BI functionality and larger numbers of BI users without the need to re-implement analytic content.
Oracle Business Intelligence SE One was developed with business user self-sufficiency in mind; featuring business user interfaces that do not require coding, SQL or other technical skills. Report layout and design is conducted with everyday tools like Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat; new interactive dashboards are built through a simple, drag and drop Web interface; and new ad hoc analyses are built by pointing and clicking on items from a simplified, logical business model of the data. These ease-of-use capabilities enable greater business value and reduced reliance on IT for reporting and analysis needs.
