Oracle's promising BI Roadmap - Taking the joy ride together (Part 1) !!

The relevance of information is defined by the accuracy, timeliness and efficiency with which it can be leveraged. 'Change' is a constantly happening process that reflects the present and defines the future, overcoming the flaws of the past. A company's legacy applications and technology might be outdated and needs to be modernized to perform and deal with competition.

Some customers tend to stay on the older versions and wait and watch the product and its future developments. Few years down the line the existing solution would be out dated and needs to be modernized to cater to the ever-growing requirements and continued product support. This is a very common scenario.

Oracle has evolved efficiently over the years from being just a data base company to a leader in middleware and applications. In this path, Oracle has acquired some prominent companies besides its home grown technologies and is in the process of integrating the best from the acquired. In the Business Intelligence spectrum, Oracle's acquisition of Siebel, Hyperion, Sunopsis and BEA define the future architecture of Oracle BI. OBIEE 11g is one such step in Oracle's world, a leap in Business Intelligence. Latest releases of OBI Apps provides additional source adapters and more capabilities.

As the BI needs of an organization grow, Oracle solutions provide multiple options to start with, grow from existing solution and evolve further.

PROTECT: To address the concerns and confusion that result from acquisitions, Oracle defines a clear roadmap along with the Lifetime Support for customer

EXTEND: Existing customers can upgrade to the latest versions to leverage the new capabilities, seamless integration with other Oracle technologies and integration with other applications such as Oracle EBS, JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, Siebel and SAP.

The existing IT staff of an organization experience the pressure and may not be having adequate bandwidth, time to deal with a software implementation/ upgrade while parallelly handling maintenance of existing solution. It is difficult to find experienced IT personnel who understands the business -  to suggest the right path and is costly to hire. Besides spending money on additional infrastructure and hiring, business can invest its capital in other higher priorities and key initiatives that deliver long term benefits. None can deny the importance of having the right BI solution in place.

Why work hard when you have 'the experts' who have done this already? Infosys has the right credentials with the right people, equipped to handle such programs with its proprietary tools and accelerators.
