The session will focus on looking at some of the decisions IT Leaders need to make in developing their Oracle Reporting Landscape. How has the landscape changed and developed, what are the choices/options to be considered? Then looking at how decision makers can make an objective decision for ‘Build vs Buy’ with regard to Oracle solutions in their enterprise. The session will draw on some of our experiences in helping enterprises work through this area, using both Oracle expertise or experience and architecture approaches to decision making.

If you are making or advising these decision in your organisation, you will learn how to deal with this challenge and how others have developed their decision papers/business cases to underpin their choices. It will also help you explain what you get and do not get with some out-of-the-box solutions .
