Tableau to OBIEE

Organizations are fast-tracking many strategic and time-sensitive decisions as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The top management personnel across all industries and public organizations around the globe are now focused on:

  • Business continuity
  • Employee safety and compliance
  • Maintaining the stakeholders’ trust 
  • Strengthening finance and operations
  • Cutting costs 
  • Maximizing sales and revenue

In this unforeseen scenario, organizations are relying on data visualizations more than ever for decision-making. However, the business executives from organizations using OBIEE and Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) for data analytics depend a lot on technical support personnel to create data visualizations. 

While creating visualizations in OBIEE takes a long turnaround-time and demands a tonne of technical know-hows, the turnaround time has become even longer as the techies can only  support remotely at this time of extreme difficulty.

Over a month ago, one of the well-known public health entities in Canada evaluated connecting Tableau to their OBIEE data for analytics and decision-making. The reason for the evaluation, though wasn’t stated explicitly, is quite evident. Tableau, as a self-service Analytics tool, will enable decision-makers to create visualizations themselves with simple point-and-click and drag-and-drop interactions. 

However, the Public Health organization faced another challenge. They were tasked with finding a secure, trusted and reliable solution for connecting Tableau to OBIEE. Fortunately, they found BI Connector. 

But as a result of the pandemic, there’s an additional need as well –  the solution must have the ability to connect the remote instances of Tableau to OBIEE, as the decision-makers will work from home until the situation returns back to normalcy.

BI Connector enables organizations to connect Tableau to OBIEE securely and remotely. BI Connector is battle-tested, and works seamlessly in all combinations of possibilities when it comes to the viz. tool’s environment (Tableau Desktop/Server), connection types (Live/Extract) and the Data Sources (OBIEE Subject Areas/Reports).

With BI Connector, many organizations (including McDonald, McAfee, United States Steel, Stanford University) are already equipping their management executives to connect their favorite self-service analytics tools to OBIEE Subject Areas and Reports for a smooth data visualization and decision-making experience. 

Here’s a whitepaper detailing how BI Connector establishes connectivity from Tableau to OBIEE. You’re welcome to share this whitepaper with your IT Architecture, Data Governance and Compliance teams, and clear their doubts and concerns!
