Replacing Oracle Discoverer or require improved reporting for EBS?
Replacing Oracle Discoverer or looking to improve end-user reporting for Oracle E-Business Suite? Why not Switch to Qlik. Qlik meets the criteria for a perfect Oracle Discoverer replacement tool.
It may be time you switched to Qlik?
Oracle Discoverer is a reporting tool that was brought to us in the 80’s and has evolved at a very slow pace over the last thirty years. Since then there have been huge changes in agile self-service analytics resulting in various BI tools on the market. Towards the end of June 2014 Oracle users were informed that Oracle will be discontinuing its premium support services for the product, putting an end to the evolution of Oracle Discoverer. This leaves Oracle Discoverer users in a position to search for a new and alternative BI tool to browse and enquire on data.
Why Qlik and not OBIEE for example, as a replacement?
Qlik® lets you create visualisations, dashboards, and apps that answer your company’s most important questions. So you can see the whole story that lives within your data.
