OBIEE Certification

Guest Author

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.

    Why are there so few middleware certifications? http://realjavasoa.blogspot.com/2008/09/oracle-certification-middleware-pros.html

    A good point indeed Jason! Watch for an upcoming post on this soon!

  • Charles Tuesday, September 23, 2008
    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Architect certification then turn around to get the OBIEE architect certification just because the other one is now outdated.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...
  • Paul Sorensen Wednesday, October 1, 2008
    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.

  • chandra shekhar Monday, December 29, 2008
    could you inform me the training and exam fees?
  • Harold Green Monday, January 5, 2009
    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.

  • krishna Sunday, January 11, 2009
    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...
  • Sudesh Pawar Friday, January 16, 2009
    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
  • chandra Sekhar Sunday, January 18, 2009
    i think the idea of starting Certification is well appreciated.
    it will be definitely helpful for the professionals.
  • Ishaq Monday, January 19, 2009
    OBIEE certification from Oracle would be really great. I am eagerly waiting for the Exam to be released.
  • Hitesh Thursday, January 22, 2009
    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
  • Harold Green Thursday, January 22, 2009
    Hi Hitesh - Thank you for your participation in the Oracle Certification blog. Our customer service team can likely best help you with this question - please email directly them at ocpexam_ww@oracle.com.
    Good luck!

  • Mansur Khan Monday, February 2, 2009
    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.
  • Mansur Friday, February 6, 2009
    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.
  • Sonu Friday, February 6, 2009
    Please let me know the URL for the Obiee Certification to get some of its details
  • Vijay Wednesday, February 11, 2009
    I am also interested to take up the OBIEE certification.
    Please let me know the procedure and share the mateirals
  • kamal Monday, February 16, 2009
    I have 3 years of experience in PLSQL 9i , can u please advice me which product of Oracle will enhance my career .So that can learn and get certified in that for career growth.
  • Christian Saturday, February 21, 2009
    Yes, we are looking forward to taking and passing the OBIEE certification.
  • Shilpa Monday, February 23, 2009
    I want to give obiee certification. Can anyone let me know the process...Is OBIEE certification there???
  • Ciaran Wednesday, February 25, 2009
    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.
  • Mark Monday, March 9, 2009
    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.
  • Harold Green Tuesday, March 10, 2009
    Hey, these are good comments folks!

  • Vineet Pal Singh Sunday, March 15, 2009
    We are a group of around 20 people in my company who were trained on OBIEE by ORACLE UNIVERSITY.We had a 1 week long training organised at our premises.We all are interseted in certification,so please provide when Oracle is coming up OBIEE certification in market.
    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
  • krishna prasad Wednesday, March 25, 2009
    plz let me when you are going to start obiee certification blog.
  • Theresa Saturday, March 28, 2009
    Excellent Idea! Let me know when you want to start beta-testing! Sign me up for certification.
  • Mohammed Jibril Wednesday, April 1, 2009
    Any update on this issue?
  • Harold Green Monday, April 6, 2009
    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.
  • John Wednesday, April 8, 2009

    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?
  • Paul Sorensen Wednesday, April 8, 2009
    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.
  • Jayashree Patait Monday, April 13, 2009
    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 !
  • Jayaraju Friday, April 17, 2009
    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"
  • Sunil Friday, April 17, 2009
    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
  • Paul Sorensen Monday, April 20, 2009
    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.
  • Tejas Tuesday, April 21, 2009
    OBIEE Certification would help a lot!!
  • Raj Wednesday, May 13, 2009
    I am awaiting for OBIEE+ certification. I hope I do not need to attend Oracle training to get this.
  • Tarang Wednesday, May 13, 2009
    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 ?
    Tarang Jain
  • Harold Green Thursday, May 14, 2009
    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.
    - Harold
  • Subro Wednesday, June 10, 2009
    OBIEE certification would be a wonderful step, I am eagerly waiting for it.
  • Mustafa Monday, June 15, 2009
    I'm awaiting for OBIEE certification too.
  • VASAVYA Thursday, June 18, 2009
    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
  • sumalalitha Tuesday, July 7, 2009
    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.
  • Harold Green Tuesday, July 7, 2009
    Hi Suma - no, not yet. The feedback that you all share here is a great help during our discussions here at Oracle on OBIEE certification however, so thanks for your input!
  • saichand Tuesday, July 14, 2009
    OBIEE certification is good..
    Waiting for this
  • Onke Tshaka Wednesday, July 15, 2009
    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.
  • Kevin Thursday, July 16, 2009
    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.
  • Jyoti Kumar Tuesday, July 21, 2009
    Hi Harold,
    I am going to write Siebel Server Architect Certification in coming week. I am worried if the OBIEE certification comes after that will my certification be outdated ?
    Please help !!
  • Harold Green Tuesday, July 21, 2009
    HI Jyoti - good news x2 is that (1) OBIEE certification is not on the near-term horizon right now to interfere with your choice, and (2) your certification will not expire/be outdated. Hope it goes well for you!
    - Harold

    I am waiting for the release of OBIEE Certification, I thought to write Siebel 7.7, but instead of writing old version, i can wait for sometime and write the latest version.
    Can split the certification in 3 ways.
    1. RPD Development
    2. Report Development
    3. New Features in OBIEE with Datawarehousing.
    Awaiting for the Release of OBIEE Certification.

  • Paul Sorensen Friday, November 13, 2009
    Hi GS – and thank you for sharing your interest in this possible track. I will update here with an announcement if we go forward with an OBIEE certification track,
  • Andrew Pyke Tuesday, December 1, 2009
    Is there any update to this, please? What are Oracle's current thoughts about the potential of this certification - is it likely or not (and when)?
  • Paul Sorensen Tuesday, December 1, 2009
    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

  • Erin Tuesday, March 9, 2010
    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.
  • Jayashree Prakash Tuesday, March 16, 2010
    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..
  • John Reseska Wednesday, March 24, 2010

  • Vineet Pal Singh Thursday, May 6, 2010
    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.

  • AMOL PALKAR Wednesday, May 26, 2010
    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.

  • Brandye Barrington Tuesday, January 4, 2011
    There are exam topics for this exam on our website at http://bit.ly/gUaWFk. Candidates who have taken the exam are bound by the Candidate Agreement to not share what was on the exam. They could lose their certification(s) for sharing exam info.
    The exam topics we provide are the best place to start.

    Is the oracle training mandatory for completing the certification? The above Oracle certification link does not mention anything like this. It is only listing the recommended trainings. Please clarify.

    Looking forward to some reply on this.
  • Brandye Barrington Monday, January 24, 2011
    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.' Click on this link to go to the track page which will show you the certification requirements.

    I have already worked on Oracle Bi and have an experience of 2+ years.What could be the possible certifications that I can take.I looked into the site and there were few certifications.Can you please tell me the certifications that I can take without attending these trainings?
  • Brandye Barrington Thursday, June 2, 2011
    Dear Guest, The available BI certifications are: Oracle Business Intelligence Applications 7 for CRM Certified Implementation Specialist http://bit.ly/a6VRve, Oracle Business Intelligence Applications 7 for ERP Certified Implementation Specialist http://bit.ly/9is39Z, Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation 10 Certified Implementation Specialist http://bit.ly/lEAKk9. There are 3 Siebel Analytics certifications http://bit.ly/jMFvsf 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.

  • guest Monday, July 11, 2011

    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.


  • brandye barrington Monday, July 11, 2011

    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 http://bit.ly/fSzVrl.

  • brandye barrington Thursday, July 28, 2011

    I'm not sure if there are any bundles. Two places you can check: You can check with Oracle University http://bit.ly/14ivVR or you can check with the Oracle Partner Network if you are a member of an Oracle Partner company http://bit.ly/cOUetN.

    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!



  • Brandye Barrington Tuesday, April 17, 2012

    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.

  • Brandye Barrington Tuesday, June 5, 2012

    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 certification.oracle.com, 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 http://bit.ly/KMsuH3.

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

  • Brandye Barrington Friday, September 7, 2012

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

    You could purchase helpful books from Oracle Press - http://community.oraclepressbooks.com/.

    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.

  • guest Thursday, October 11, 2012

    Hi Jason,

    You can contact Oracle University http://bit.ly/14ivVR 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.

  • Brandye Barrington Thursday, November 8, 2012

    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?



  • Brandye Barrington Tuesday, November 20, 2012

    1) 591 is in production


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

I want to do certification in OBIEE. so can anyone tell me what is the procedure for doing certification in OBIEE 11g, and from where we can get the material for the preparation. Is there any future in OBIEE.

  • Brandye Barrington Wednesday, March 1, 2017


    As far as the future of OBIEE, you might get better information from your peers in the OTN communities.

    Regarding OBIEE certification, this is the certification that is available.

    Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite 11g Certified Implementation Specialist

    I wanted to do a certification on OBIEE. which of the 2 is better and what is the difference? Is it just the versions?

    1z0 526 --10g

    1z0 591 -- 11g

    What is the difference between these Foundation Essentials and other OBIEE implementation specialist certifications?

  • Brandye Barrington Wednesday, March 22, 2017


    I would say that it is probably best to start with the latest version - 11g. You can see the differences in the two exams by having a look at the exam topics on each of the exam pages.
