Originally published March 22, 2006

Oracle recently introduced Oracle Business Intelligence Suite, open, standards-based software designed for all users and business processes throughout the enterprise. Oracle Business Intelligence Suite unites Oracle’s business intelligence middleware with Siebel Business Analytics. When combined with Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise, Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Oracle’s Siebel prebuilt analytic applications, the Oracle Business Intelligence Suite addresses the complete spectrum of BI and analytical requirements facing customers today, including historical, real-time and forward-looking insight, with data integration and management. The suite, along with other software components of Oracle Applications, Oracle Database, and Oracle Fusion Middleware, delivers enterprise-wide business intelligence that is “hot-pluggable” into existing operational systems.  

A part of the Oracle Fusion Middleware product family, Oracle Business Intelligence Suite features three editions.  Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition integrates technology from Siebel Business Analytics with Oracle’s existing BI and middleware technology to offer an enterprise-wide BI infrastructure and tools. Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Standard Edition offers pre-integrated BI infrastructure software and tools for an Oracle environment.  Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Standard Edition One is designed as a specialized offering for small and medium businesses (SMBs). Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise and Standard Editions are available today. The Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Standard Edition One offering is planned for availability in the next fiscal year.

“Our investment in Siebel Business Analytics complements our already strong BI and analytic application product set enabling us to now offer the industry’s most comprehensive solution,” said Charles Phillips, President, Oracle.  “Our investment extends to the creation of a dedicated BI sales organization to support our expanded product offerings.  We’re uniquely positioned to assist customers to glean greater business insight and garner increased value from their data and applications.”
           
Oracle Business Intelligence Suite enables customers to extend BI across an enterprise so that users can make informed decisions based on timely, actionable information.  Developed for heterogeneous IT environments, it allows business users to collect and analyze information from Oracle and non-Oracle databases including IBM, Microsoft, and Teradata, and from business applications from Oracle and SAP, among others.  Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition shares Oracle Fusion Middleware’s hot-pluggable capabilities that enable organizations to fully exploit the power of any non-Oracle application, data sources and tools with the BI solution.
