Unanswered: Evaluation of BI Tools , Discoverer, Cognos, Brio, SAS, Business Objects
I have been assigned a task of preparing evaluation criterias and suggesting a BI tool. Our Data Warehouse environment has Oracle 8i database and we have to dicide on either of these two application server Oracle 9ias or BEA.
I don't quite know about BEA, but I'm kind of very into Oracle9ias. Yes, I do like to use Oracle's tool (9ias), but sometimes seems to be quite slow the rows processing delay. If you are going to work with big tables (million or more) it may be a problem to you.
Also, it is not a cheap tool. Is quite expensive for small and medion companies. Apart of the above, the flexibility of user reports and friendly interface are quite good and extremiklly easy to use.
