The Challenge

The firm was using OBIEE for over a decade and created a single version of truth in it. They eventually started using Tableau to combine its enhanced visualization capabilities with OBIEE’s immense analytics data.

The user community was frustrated due to the cumbersome process of taking large volumes of OBIEE data to Tableau. They would have to first run queries in OBIEE. followed by extracting and uploading the data to Tableau.

The users were able to partially overcome the challenge by connecting Tableau to OBIEE using a web data connector. However, the connector failed to support the latest Tableau version and the union queries in OBIEE, forcing the users to adapt to the manual extraction process again. The users started losing interest.
