What Targ IT can do which Business Objects Xcelsius don't?
1. Oracle compatible?
2. Can we do this year's sales versus last year's sales by drawing 2 lines in a single-page line chart?

Yes - TARGIT can deliver the same analysis capabilities as BO's dashboard toolset. However, BO can not achieve the same delivery as TARGIT.
TARGIT is designed to be more self-service for end user analysis design and much more intuitive as I have used both.

TARGIT doesn't require the need for IT developers and analyst to setup analysis and make it 'published'.

Security models vary by implementation and TARGIT has work to do in this area versus any mainstream product.
For example, often sales persons are limited to their territories and sales managers are over multiple sales persons. To limit each sales person to their customers/territory sales information only, a role must be created and configured by sales person for their log in. Sales people can change frequently and so must the roles. It would be a vast improvement for the security module to monitor a dimension, such as salesperson and create a role for each unique ID and allow rules to be developed accordingly that would be considered and dynamically generated.

A good demo of the TARGIT toolset should allow you to have a better decision process. I can not recommend strongly enough that the evaluation MUST be made by the people using the tool, not an IT staff. IT should focus on the data quality and infrastructure, not the delivery mechanism (outside of the mechanical and compliance requirements). The most successful BI requires Business Champions (IMHO).
