OBIEE Certification

The Oracle Certification team is considering the possibility of releasing an Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) certification. In an effort to determine the demand for such a certification as well as which role we have created a survey for candidates to share their thoughts.

Please access the survey here. [UPDATE: survey closed as of 14 Nov 2008]

We appreciate your help on this!


Hi Paul, I am new to OBI and this would be a great opportunity to have a strong learning path for OBI and highlight the various areas within OBI - Core, Repository or Presentation layers or specific technologies related to BI for Apps like DAC or the Informatica or ODi engines. I think this is a good idea. Sydney

Why are there so few middleware certifications?

Posted by Jason Jones on September 15, 2008 at 05:54 AM PDT #

A good point indeed Jason! Watch for an upcoming post on this soon! - Harold Harold Green Sr Manager, Oracle Certification

Posted by Harold Green on September 15, 2008 at 07:17 AM PDT #

Is this going to be more comprehensive than the: Siebel 7.7 Certified Server Architect Professional Currently there are 4 certifications available for Siebel 7.7, how will this certification play into those who have or are looking to get certified in Siebel since there are no OBIEE certifications? Hopefully this is something being decided upon soon...I wouldn't want to get the Server Architect certification then turn around to get the OBIEE architect certification just because the other one is now outdated. Please advice...

Posted by Charles on September 23, 2008 at 02:19 AM PDT #

Charles- At this point we are only conducting an investigation of the feasibility of an OBIEE-related certification. We are not sure if, what or when something will be built. In any case we won't be retiring the 7.7 tracks in the near future (or anytime soon for that matter), so pursuing one of those should not be an issue. Paul Sorensen

HI Chandra - this is not a certification that is available right now. Oracle is just assessing the possibility of creating one. We will update our blog here if we go forward with this new certification. Cheers, - Harold

Hi, I am intrested in doing the certification for OBIEE, can i get the complete details for that like , when i t is going to be initiated and what will be the fee structure and other proceedings... Thanks... Krishna

OBIEE certification from Oracle would be really great. I hope it is similar to the other Oracle certifications, as in distributed in levels. Please feel free to get in touch with me, if you feel you can use any help in this regards.I would be really interested in getting involved in such an effort. Thanks and Regards Sudesh

OBIEE certification from Oracle would be really great. I am eagerly waiting for the Exam to be released. Regards Ishaq

Posted by Ishaq on January 19, 2009 at 02:32 PM PST #

Following are the courses available from Oracle, which will be accepted for Server Architect , Application Developer and DW Developer Professional Certification Question is which courses should I take to get certified against each of the certification path. Since Oracle is not offering most of the Siebel 7.7 classes. 1)Oracle BI 10g Analytics: Overview ( Live Virtual Class) 2) Oracle BI Applications 7.9 : Develop a Data Warehouse (Instructor Led Class) 3)Oracle BI Suite EE 10g R3: Create Reports/Dashboards (Instructor Led Class) 4) Oracle BI Suite EE 10g R3: Build Repositories (Instructor Led Class) 5) Oracle BI Applications 7.9 : Implementation for Oracle EBS (Coming Soon) following is the note I found on Oracle University Site Due to the decreasing availability of the Siebel 7.7 Analytics courses, Oracle Certification will accept the Oracle BI courses toward Analytics certification. However, please remember that the Siebel 7.7 Analytics courses remain the best way to prepare for these exams and Oracle BI courses may not sufficiently help prepare candidates. Certification paths: * Siebel 7.7 Analytics Server Architect Professional Core Exam * Siebel 7.7 Analytics App. Developer Professional Core Exam * Siebel 7.7 Analytics Data Warehouse Dev. Prof. Core Exam

I think a certification would be very helpful as most people dont know what they are talking about and experience is good but hiring managers know nothing about OBIEE and a certification from Oracle would be a great thing.

Posted by Mansur Khan on February 02, 2009 at 02:35 AM PST #

I think it is a good idea, however i think you should not have a big fee for the course and allow people with experience to give the exam directly and not have a class and hands on mandatory. This mandatory class puts too big a burden on us. but an exam is very helpful so in the least when hiring a person meets minimum requirements.

Posted by Mansur on February 05, 2009 at 11:57 PM PST #

I am eagerly awaiting any news on OBIEE+ certification. My company would have at least 5 persons interested. Please contact me if anything becomes available.

Posted by Ciaran on February 25, 2009 at 12:30 AM PST #

Hi, I think the certification would be a good idea BUT...what I think is also missing from the Oracle site is some clear indication of the compatiblity between versions of various different products (unless I have missed it). When looking to learn and investigate new products prior to training and certification a clear indication of the future of the product and how it fits in to the overall Oracle architecture would help. On the certification specifics I think a stepped / tier'd approach would be good i.e. OBIEE Professional --> OBIEE Expert --> OBIEE GURU. Only joking on the last one but I think sometimes the certifications require too many exams and then suddenly a new version is out. The customers really want a way to get certified to a sufficient level quickly I'd say and then add to it. thanks Mark

The following courses were covered during training process 1)Oracle BI 10g Analytics: Overview 2) Oracle BI Applications 7.9 : Develop a Data Warehouse 3)Oracle BI Suite EE 10g R3: Create Reports/Dashboards 4) Oracle BI Suite EE 10g R3: Build Repositories

Any update on this issue?

Posted by Mohammed Jibril on March 31, 2009 at 05:09 PM PDT #

No plans as of yet to build an OBIEE certification; however, we're continuing to assess the user community for the viability of creating one.

Posted by Harold Green on April 05, 2009 at 11:58 PM PDT #

1) Would Oracle ever consider consolidating the certification into one single OBIEE certification vs. three (legacy Siebel Analytics 7.7) in order to increase demand? 2) Would Oracle consider offering a certification upgrade path to OBIEE? Thanks!

Posted by John on April 08, 2009 at 03:48 AM PDT #

Hi John, Here are some quick answers to your questions: 1) This is a possible approach, but the problem we face is that the roles are so different (developer, admin, etc) it makes tough to combine the offerings into one. Probably not feasible with OBIEE. 2) Possibly, it depends upon how much the content changes. Most likely there would only be one exam so the path for new entrants and upgraders would be the same (for efficiency purposes). I hope this helps answer your questions. Thanks!

Posted by Paul Sorensen on April 08, 2009 at 08:06 AM PDT #

These OBIEE certifications tracks will definately help to gain the technical experties .I would like to receive the update once Oracle release the same . Thanks !

Posted by Jayashree Patait on April 12, 2009 at 08:26 PM PDT #

Hi, I have about 5 years of experience in working with Siebel analytics/OBIEE. I can pass any exam to get certified. Is it mandetory to take training for all relavant cources bofore attend the exam? I want to become Oracle certified sibel 7.7 server architect professional but training itself costs about$5000. why oracle university made it compulasary even for working professional? what is the equivalent course in OBIEE to get certified in "Oracle certified sibel 7.7 server architect professional" Thanks Jayaraju

Posted by Jayaraju on April 17, 2009 at 02:38 AM PDT #

yep, oracle should come up with a certification track for OBIEE. My company is on the consulting side and a part of OTN. The issue which we face is with staffing. OBIEE is new technology and difficult to find experience people. So if have certification, we would be in a better position to gain client confidence and sell deals Regards Sunil

Posted by Sunil on April 17, 2009 at 03:35 AM PDT #

Hi Sunil (or anyone else that might want to comment), Thanks for your post. What roles are you seeing a need for? Developer? Admin? Architect? Any additional input would be helpful. Thanks, Paul

Hi, That will be great if Oracle starts certification in OBIEE. I am also working from past 2 yrs on OBIEE and looking for certification. Harold Green I think there are so many people who are willing to do certification, so why Oracle is not initiating this ? Regards, Tarang Jain

Posted by Tarang on May 13, 2009 at 02:01 PM PDT #

Hi Tarang - thanks for asking, as your question is a good one. This certification is indeed still a possibility. We just posted a helpful article on the Oracle Certification Blog called How Do We Select Which Certifications to Build?. In the meantime, we'll continue to evaluate this track for a possible certification. Cheers, - Harold

Posted by Mustafa on June 14, 2009 at 09:17 PM PDT #

Its completely strange that "ONE should attend the training to give certification ... its noth but to get money If person is well exp then i think no need of traning and SOME of the traniers who are in oracle university are not much worth off ......because i have been there for couple of trainings....And while coming to certification ..... its like a name plate which is kept out side of house "Certifiied Expert" Y do i say this because the question paper dont change at all and people buy the ..... (every 1 knows ) for exam and clear 's it Its all about making money thats all i have been observing it from past 1 year same question paper same ..... and peopl dont know what they are doing And in few weeks it pass's to all and every one get's certified .... Major thing is person who cant afford money and has major talent in his Professional field , they get suppressed .... So people pls pls work on it first start from core then u know wht to do.... And its not to hurt any 1 intentions but this is what i come to see

Posted by VASAVYA on June 18, 2009 at 01:20 PM PDT #

HI, Has any decision been taken yet on introducting OBIEE certification? As some one rightly suggested, it should be a tiered one like Basic --> Architect ---> Expert. Suma

Hi there I think it would give a lot of people advanced knowledge that is hard to find. I'm a SQL DBA but have been introduced to OBIEE and I have been looking for a place where I can write my certification. So guys, I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that have this would benefit South Africa. Regards Onke

Posted by Onke Tshaka on July 15, 2009 at 04:47 PM PDT #

I spent a fair amount of time reviewing the Oracle University site and had difficulty finding content that appears suitable for my team's training needs. As a manager of an OBIEE+ development team I would like to see content geared towards the higher end technical roles, like developer and architect. It would also be great to have an OBIEE certification for my team's growth as well as my recruiting needs for hiring experts in this space.

Hi Drew, As an update, this is currently on hold. We are not currently working on an OBIEE exam or track, however our new partner-related (OPN) certification initiative may bring us something in the OBIEE space; but as of right now there is no development in progress. I'll definitely let everyone know if the situation changes. Thanks, Paul

SAP/Business Objects has three certifications for their BO suite Administrator, Integrator, Report Writer. Which is a good way for people to advance their career by focusing on that segment of the market. Competing in the job market is more efficient if you have a certification. Too bad Oracle does not think so.

Posted by Erin on March 09, 2010 at 05:07 AM PST #

Its a good idea to introduce a certification on OBIEE. I am eagerly waiting for it. Its completely strange that we should attend the training to give certification exam. I have got no time to attend to but would like to take the certification exam. I would suggest that you increase the certification fee little bit for those who did no attend the tranining..

Hi Paul Sorensen, Oracle is taking too much time to come up with OBIEE certification. As someone rightly pointed out all major reporting tool vendors like Business Objects(BO), Cognos, SAP have certifications available in the market.OBIEE certification would give an edge to consultants which they lack now. In my opinion Oracle should come up with OBIEE ASAP. I am very sure many OBIEE consultants are eagerly waiting to get certified.

Hi, I had many email circulations with oracle certification department. Even though many here on the blog I have seen excited about the certification of OBIEE still no use as oracle gives outdated certification of siebel analytics 7.7. There could be difficulties in the path to launch OBIEE certification. I am interested in those to know. Second issue I have with oracle siebel analtics 7.7 certification is , it is really costly means every certification training is of nearabout 1 lac (a hundread thousand). like 70000,130000,180000. I am having 5 years of expertise in obiee , I really don't understand why I need to go through this stuff and waste my money. Though oracle is benefiting however this is my request to alter their mandate rule to opt for training. So that directly we can sit for prometric exams. Thanks, Amol Palkar, Sr. OBI consultant

Hi Jay, Training is not mandatory for the Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation 10.1.3 Certified Implementation Specialist certification. The requirements are different for each certification. The page referenced above is the exam page, it does not tell the requirements for certification. In the top section of the page, you'll see a field called 'Associated Certifications.'

Posted by guest on May 11, 2011 at 08:01 PM PDT #

Dear Guest, The available BI certifications are: Oracle Business Intelligence Applications 7 for CRM Certified Implementation Specialist, Oracle Business Intelligence Applications 7 for ERP Certified Implementation Specialist, Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation 10 Certified Implementation Specialist There are 3 Siebel Analytics certifications under this umbrella as well, but they are older certifications and require training. The 3 listed here do not require training, tho training is always recommended to best help you prepare - not only for your exam, but also for your future job role.

Hi, I am oracle employee. I am planning to write exam 1Z0-526. I have two questions:
1- Is it necessary to attend recommended trainings before writing exams in order to get this certificate? Is the fees of trainings included in exam fee OR do we need to pay distinctly for both?
2- Is there any sample test available for this exam just like we have for other Oracle certification exams? If yes, Please direct me to the required link. I tried finding on OU website but no luck.

Training is not reqiured for this certification. However, we do recommend that you complete the training in order to help you prepare for the exam. Training fees are not included in the exam fee. They are paid separately. Additionally, there are no sample questions for this exam. You can view the exam topics on the web site at

Is there a certification for OBIEE 11g available?

I am getting ready to take the exam for OBIEE 10; however, I was wondering if there is a release date for the new exam (11g).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!


Posted by Doug on April 16, 2012 at 03:49 PM PDT #

Hi Doug,
There is not yet a OBIEE 11g certification. Unfortunately, I do not have any information right now on when one will be released.

I am a Business Analyst by profession. Will a certification in OBIEE enhance my career path as a BA?
And also what version I can get enrolled?
I dont have much technincal exposure. Please advise.

Posted by Jude on June 05, 2012 at 12:02 AM PDT #

Hi Jude,
Surveys (by Oracle and by 3rd parties) have shown that certification can help to enhance your career. My suggestion is that you do a little research on the types of jobs available in your region, in your area of expertise, and what qualifications they require.

You can view the available BI certifications on our website at, select 'Java and Middleware' in the 2nd field and 'Oracle Business Intelligence' in the 3rd field.

You can also pose this question to other users on our Certification Forum

hello can some please send me the training manuals for 11G & quota.xls

Posted by guest on September 05, 2012 at 11:10 PM PDT #

The only way to get training manuals is to attend OU training.

You could purchase helpful books from Oracle Press -

I attended OU classes for OBIEE about 3 years ago and have since moved to a new job with a new company and no longer have the material that was provided electronically for the classes. Is it possible to get copies of that material somehow? I assume that Oracle would have a record of my attendance. The move from getting hardcopies of the material for each class to the electronic media was very disappointing.

Hi Jason,
You can contact Oracle University about these course completion certificates.

I'm interested in doing OBIEE certification...1Z0-591 Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite 11g Essentials. When I checked out this exam in oracle site,this exam comes under beta exam. Kindly let me know the pros and cons of attending beta exam.

Posted by Arul on November 07, 2012 at 10:04 PM PST #

Pros: price! 1) It's $50 compared to $150-$195 for production. 2) Also you get to see the entire bank of questions. If, for some reason you don't pass, you'll know how to better prepare for the next attempt. 3) You get to help with the exam development process - just by taking the exam and with your comments.

Cons: 1) It's a long exam that covers a lot of material and a lot of ground. 2) You have to wait quite some time before you'll know if you passed or not.

I hope this helps.

Kindly clarify me the below queries in attending OBIEE certification exam:
1)Whether the Production exam for 1Z0-591 certification is available now or yet to be introduced by oracle?
2)Whether the candidates attending beta exam will be considered as oracle certified professional or is it necessary to take Production exam?Which one is more valued?


Posted by arul on November 19, 2012 at 11:52 PM PST #

1) 591 is in production
2) Candidates who passed the beta exam will have the same certification as candidates who pass the production exam.
