Oracle Business Intelligence Gets Ground Breaking Collaborative BI Technology via BITeamwork

BI Users Can Now Comment on Dashboards, Add Cell Annotations, and Reveal BI ROI

TEGA CAY, S.C., March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Oracle's flagship analytics product, Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE), now gives users the ability to comment on dashboards and collaborate within the application suite via BITeamwork. The first of its kind, BITeamwork is a Collaborative BI plug-in framework for OBIEE developed by Oracle Partner, Art of BI Software.  Art of BI Software is a South Carolina based startup and the brainchild Christian Screen, co-author of the first book on Oracle Business Intelligence 11g, who co-founded the company in mid-2013. BITeamwork is a collaboration management solution that integrates seamlessly into the OBIEE software suite and augments the user experience (UX) of the web-based OBIEE portal with collective intelligence functionality. 

Collaborative BI is the applied concept of collective intelligence within a Business Intelligence system. This is accomplished by using social networking techniques such as posting relevant commentary on dashboards, liking comments, and encouraging user participation via gamification.  BITeamwork's ground breaking framework extends Oracle BI by allowing cross-system commentary within Oracle BI itself and optionally with third party social networks such as Salesforce.com Chatter, Microsoft Yammer, and Citrix Podio which is a first for the Business Intelligence industry.

"Cell annotations and comment aggregation are the two most popular features amongst our customers", says Christian Screen, Chief Geek and President at Art of BI Software. BITeamwork incorporates a familiar Facebook "Like" feature into the solution for OBIEE which allows users to "Like" a comment they find helpful or insightful.  By aggregating the comments with the highest shared sentiment, a feedback loop is generated in a historically one-way push-data-to-end-users BI system. "Many organizations have the challenge of identifying the ROI in their Business Intelligence program. BITeamwork helps answer this ROI question by giving the enterprise a means to quantify user contributions as a by-product of giving users what they want; which is to contribute their knowledge into the system that helps make key decisions about their business." says Screen. Cell annotations provide users the ability to comment on a specific cell value in a data table or pivot table showing on an analytical dashboard, in the context of the user's current perspective, which is not possible in most Business Intelligence solutions. "These two items alone give any BI System using our technology a nice advantage over their competition." says Screen.

BITeamwork complements organizations seeking to innovate within their Information Technology departments and boosts overall user adoption of their Oracle Business Intelligence solution. BITeamwork version 2.7 for OBIEE was recently released and is now generally available.  The BITeamwork development roadmap includes functionality for Embedded BI which allows for embedding graphs and charts on external portals such as Microsoft SharePoint and other key Collaborative BI features for the Oracle Mobile BI solutions. Art of BI Software plans to develop BITeamwork and other key solutions for several BI vendors in order to fill feature voids common in all BI Vendor offerings such as data caching, multi-architect development, and of course, collaboration.
