Oracle BI Applications are part of the Oracle’s Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Suite. Oracle also provides “BI Applications” using the OBIEE Architecture that comprises of a Pre-Packaged Repository, Pre-Packaged set of Reports for a particular ERP, Business Analytics Warehouse, Informatica ETL and a DAC ETL Orchestration Server.
The BI Applications is a high-end BI Solution that will get users up and ready very quickly by avoiding custom-building a solution with just a OBIEE Server. Data that originates from the Oracle Applications resides in a relational Oracle Database. Using the ETL tool, this data is used to populate the Data Warehouse. OBIEE then can use the Dashboards, Answers, etc. to run queries on this data.
OBI Apps (Fins, HR, Procurement.) reside on top of the OBIEE / OBIEE Plus layer which contain all the pre-built dashboards and content.
