Oracle Discoverer vs KBace

Hi, I'm currently with an Organization that uses KBace linked to our EBS Instance and I was hoping to endorse Oracle Discoverer as our Reporting Tool instead.

I have no prior experience with KBace and only have some experience with Discoverer.

I would like to know the difference between the two and what are the advantages and disadvantages. Any thoughts?

Thank you very much!

    I cannot speak to KBace.  However, you need to be aware that Premier support for Discoverer 11g ended in June of 2014.   Discoverer is the final release of Discoverer.  Premier support is the only level of support that includes new product releases, new bug fixes, certification against new software releases (OS, Java, browser, EBS, etc.).  It would be better to investigate Discoverer's replacement, Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (BIEE).  I suggest you contact Oracle Sales, as they may have comparisons of functionality between the different products.

    Best Regards,
