1 - Introduction

 OBIEE comes from Siebel Analytics who comes from an earlier acquisition of nQuire by Siebel in 2002. You know now why a lot of file begin with this two letters “Nq”.

The product, which the San Mateo, Calif., company introduced at its Siebel User Week show here last week, is an extension of the Siebel Customer Analytic Applications and incorporates technology Siebel acquired from nQuire Inc. in late 2001.

Siebel Enterprise Analytic Platform 7.7 includes Siebel Analytics Server for calculation and integration, logical business model and metadata management, and caching. Other components include the Intelligent Interaction Management module for data mining; Interactive Dashboard, which provides a portal interface to the data; Siebel Answers for ad hoc querying; and Siebel Delivers for sending alerts of changes in data.

Siebels new analytics platform will face entrenched vendors such as Cognos Inc., Business Objects S.A. and MicroStrategy Inc.
