Great tools easy to use and learn
I like the fact that I can connect to different data sources and build reports in one place. My end users then have to sign in to fewer products to get to dashboards and/or data.
I would enjoy it better if DataVisualization and OAC BI were accessible from the same home page. It's annoying to have to switch between different URLs when it is the same product. Another thing I dislike is the fact that I have to use Internet explorer on analysis's that is based on a essbase sourced subject area. If I use chrome the anlaysis will show up as blank.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized? We have moved from an excel based department accountability report to department accountability reports in OAC.
G2 Crowd
We implemented OAC about a year ago.
OAC has helped us create our executive reporting packages and has allowed for standardization. We have been able to connect different data sources to help build the needed reports.
It takes quite a bit of time to interface from ERP into OAC. It would be nice if the interface was quicker.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized? We have been able to standardize our reporting across all of our markets. We can create reports an make them available to our end users very easily.
