4 Reasons to Migrate from Oracle BI to Birst


For customers using Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE), Birst offers four good reasons to leave this legacy solution for Birst’s native cloud-based BI solution:

  1. Self-service: Oracle OBIEE offers weak self-service analytic capabilities and had the lowest ease-of-use scores, based on customer surveys, according to the 2015 Gartner report, “Critical Capabilities for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms.” Enterprise IT organizations can spend an additional $1.1 million annually to generate OBIEE BI reports – a tremendous sum that could be saved by giving business users the ability to create their own reports. Birst, on the other hand, received among the highest marks for ease-of-use in the 2015 Gartner Critical Capabilities report.
  2. Customer service: Oracle’s legendary poor customer service is perhaps most apparent in its aggressive customer auditing. The average Oracle true-up fee is $1.6 million, according to IDC, an extreme sum that many customers characterize as “extortionate.” In comparison, Birst’s BI platform received the highest scores of any vendor in the 2015 Gartner Critical Capabilities report for its customer service.
  3. BI Architecture: Oracle’s enterprise business intelligence is a legacy environment based on an antiquated, single-tenant architecture. This can cost the average enterprise customer an additional $1.5 million in full-time support employees when compared to other, more modern platforms. Birst is cloud architected and also is available on-premises, featuring a modern, multi-tenant cloud architecture.
  4. Agility: OBIEE’s dis-integrated application stack exacerbates data silo challenges by creating more of them. Birst delivers “Networked BI” that empowers users to work freely with data while delivering trust, data governance and agility at scale.

OBIEE customers could be spending an additional $4.2 million a year, beyond Oracle’s license and support fees.
