As part of the 2006 acquisition of Siebel CRM, Oracle quickly appreciated the value of their analytics platform which was quickly launched as Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition. This world class BI platform gives a customer the ability to report across their entire enterprise with a single front end. Within Siebel there was a pre packaged warehouse solution for even more impressive OLAP capability and this concept has been extended to all Oracle Applications and interestingly, to SAP. Oracle provides out of the box, warehouse and OBIEE content with ETL (informatica) routines from the various applications – Oracle BI Applications - OBIA. Fujitsu, one of the largest Oracle services providers in Europe is currently working on one of the biggest rollouts of the OBIA in the UK.
The OBIEE and Hyperion Products are what makes up the Oracle BI Management portfolio and Fujitsu has committed to being a serious player in this capability. We sought internal investment to create and develop the capability and this included exploiting the Oracle Partner Enablement Program for this discipline and then creating and funding an OBIEE ‘bootcamp’ with our team. Fujitsu has achieved Oracle Partner Network BI Foundation and Essbase Specialization. This is our differentiator - we know the data in the ERP applications.
