What are the Benefits of Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher?
A Client Story
Allow users to create templates themselves to present
this data. BIP replaces the cumbersome Oracle Reports
6i. BIP is versatile, agile and dramatically cuts down the
time to specify, develop and implement new reports.
Long cycles of report requirement specifications,
misunderstandings, testing and re-work are a thing of
When the organisation was implementing Oracle, Sonja
spent ten days writing the justification a new set of reports.
Now that Oracle BIP has been implemented, it actually
takes less time for her to implement the reports than to
write a business justification
Power to your
BIP templates can be modified by the users to access
information they need, when they need it, and in the
format they need it so they can concentrate on the
important task of running the business. Cut
development time and remove repeated iterations of
requirements definition, prototype and re-work.
Mark wanted to send project status information to
suppliers in the form of a letter. The developers quoted
three weeks time to do this.
Using BIP we combined two standard reports to provide
PDF letters, addressed with all the details, ready for
sending. This report took a couple of hours to develop.
A surprisingly large number of users tell me their
standard report truncates the information contained in
fields. Oracle BIP will display the full content of the field.
Harry’s auditors were giving his organisation a low rating
because the information was getting truncated in some of
the key reports. All the reports we’ve converted to BIP now
show the full contents of every field.
