Here are a couple of reviews to highlight:
SAP BO – “Provides a platform for developing reporting that can be used by end users, which will give relevant, consistent and correct results. Also, ability to combine data, I created a report based on SAP data from BW and combined it with data from SQL server to be able to report on the data in a way that would not have been possible to do except with manual steps. The solution I built replaced a manual process that would take 3 weeks and provided an automated solution. We were able to get the critical analysis in a small fraction of time and able to run the business better as a result. Can be a little buggy. As with any system you need to do the work to set up the foundation; nothing is as easy as you install it and all your problems are solved.” Read the full review here.
OBIEE – “Exalytics combined with Exadata server makes it possible to query ~ 50TB of datamart data (uncompressed size), that’s really great and ~ 1000 of simultaneous requests.In the past it was not possible to join data from so many different sources due to the performance limitations imposed by the size of the data Self service BI. It’s clear that Endeca tends to be integrated into BIFS and probably self-service functionality will be covered by Endeca.” Read the full review here.
