BuzzClan Essbase-BI Integration Services
Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g (OBIEE) is a comprehensive business intelligence platform that delivers a full range of capabilities including interactive dashboards, ad hoc queries, notifications and alerts, enterprise and financial reporting, scorecard and strategy management, business process invocation, search and collaboration, mobile, integrated systems management and more. Oracle Essbase is the market-leading online analytical processing (OLAP) server designed specifically for business users and speed of thought analytics. Oracle Essbase supports forecasting, variance analysis, root cause identification, scenario planning and what-if modeling for both custom and packaged application.

Traditionally the skills required to analyze the Essbase Cubes is limited to a few power users with in-depth understanding of the data structures and the Essbase technology. Integrating Essbase with OBIEE opens the doors for other users to get the same insight into the data with at a low cost of adaptability and a shallow learning curve.

BuzzClan professionals provide an in-depth analysis of existing Essbase implementation with OBIEE, and model the Cubes in OBIEE with minimal impact on existing business processes. This is done using BuzzClan's workshop approach.
