What is OBIEE?

Hi, I have a background in using Hyperion products, from Essbase to Planning to Shared Services, etc...

I'm trying to learn about OBIEE and started googling and did not find the exact answers I was looking for.

What exactly is OBIEE? How is it different than OBIEE Plus?

How does it correlate to Hyperion? Is OBIEE = Hyperion?

What type of companies use OBIEE? What do they use it for?

Thanks for reading.

    You should get most of these answers online if you google them. However...just to recap in a simple way:

    OBIEE is Oracle BI Enterprise Edition, their flagship BI product that competes with other tools like Cognos, Business Objects.
    OBIEE Plus, OBIEE FOundations usually a fancy name for a "Package" of things like OBIEE + Essbase, etc...
    Hyperion/EPM is a separate product set but as of OBIEE 11g, Essbase Cubes are better integrated with OBIEE as a reporting platform.

    Pls mark correct/helpful
