In 2006, a group of Oracle executives with more than 80 years of combined experience in ERP reporting and business intelligence founded Orbit. They did so because they realized that something was wrong with most reporting and analytics applications.
Most platforms were designed for IT developers – not for the business users who rely on them for their daily reporting and analytics needs. Whenever an end user wanted to do something as simple as create an ad-hoc report, they would need to submit a ticket with to IT department. Then, they had to wait for a developer to build it. If the IT team was swamped, the end user would need to wait days – or even weeks. Meanwhile, IT teams faced constant backlogs with requests to build or modify reports.
As a result, users often received reports that failed to answer their questions promptly. This ineffective way of doing things harmed all of their business functions.
The need for on-demand, data-driven decision-making required companies to empower their business users with self-service reporting and analytics. The solution must integrate all of their key data sources in real-time – and be accessible from any device or platform. To meet the needs of these business users, the executives assembled a team of senior architects to build Orbit (Operational Reporting and Business Intelligence Technology). The Orbit platform allows users to create interactive reports, dashboards, and visualizations on demand – while working within the data governance and security rules established by their IT organization.
