Oracle Named a Leader in Enterprise Business Intelligence Platforms by Independent Research Firm

Redwood Shores, Calif. - October 28, 2010

News Facts

According to a new October 2010 report from independent analyst firm Forrester Research, Inc., Oracle is a leader in enterprise business intelligence (BI) platforms.
Forrester Research defines BI as a set of methodologies, processes, architectures, and technologies that transform raw data into meaningful and useful information used to enable more effective strategic, tactical, and operational insights and decision-making.
Written by vice president, principal analyst Boris Evelson, “The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Business Intelligence Platforms, Q4 2010,” states that “Oracle has built new metadata-level OBIEE 11g integration with Fusion Middleware and Fusion Apps and continues to differentiate with its versatile ROLAP engine.”
The report also states: “And in addition to closing some gaps it had in 10.x versions such as lack of RIA functionality, 11g release actually leapfrogs the competition with the Common Enterprise Information Model (CEIM) — including the ability to define actions and execute processes right from BI metadata across BI and ERP applications.”

Complete, Integrated and Scalable Suite of BI Products

A component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Business Intelligence 11g is the most complete, integrated and scalable suite of BI products for customers to achieve better business visibility and alignment.
Oracle Business Intelligence 11g was released in August 2010.
