Oracle partners have a great opportunity to
help their customers to modernise their reporting systems. We propose you
work with your clients and engage to help them on this journey to migrate or
re-implement their analytic reporting and dashboard needs using our modern
strategic BI Foundation Suite tools such as OBI, Essbase,
BI-Publisher, Mobile-BI and Scorecards.
Some customers still use older Oracle
reporting software tools, such as Discoverer, Oracle-Reports, and
Hyperion-Interactive-Reporting (as was BRIO), as well as legacy products from
other suppliers. These customers are missing out on the value of the Oracle
R&D investment of recent years in Oracle’s strategic BI products. Also, with the rise of Big Data, In-memory
Analytics, Cloud and Mobile, the world has changed since customers purchased
these older solutions: they need a modern BI technology that can help them meet
the challenges of this new world.
If customers retire the older systems, then
they can save on higher administration and maintenance costs and support fees,
which can be invested in a modern solution delivering much more value to the
Tools and Resources for Partners
