When Oracle introduced the Oracle BI Applications (Oracle BIA), this introduction has been accompanied by the slogan; ‘Buy versus Build’. From a Sales point of view, this sounds like a good statement. Either you buy something or you build it yourself. If you ask those who are responsible for the implementation of Oracle BIA, you will get a different insight. In real life things are never black or white. There are always some shades of gray.
I will take you on a short journey along a few areas of a Oracle BIA implementation. This journey will cover the time and money savers, the user adoption, customization, training and the pitfalls of such an implementation.
This Ignite-style-presentation will explain why; ‘Build versus Build Less’ will be a better statement. On top of that, this presentation should give the audience a picture why ‘Build Less’ is the best option.
