IMHO, there are actually two aspects as far as this thread is concerned:
One seems to be pure data volume, response time and data synchronization in which case some sort of ETL and data mart would be logical alternatives (or at least starting points).
If you create that layer outside of Odoo then the likes of Pentaho come into play, with all the inherent flexibility.

But, short of that, when data volume is not necessarily a limiting factor and we want to keep an integrated and unique data source, then the flexibility of Odoo is questioned.
I do agree that Advanced filters are particularly powerful but probably the main drawback is that all your filtering capability is static.
This limitation is particularly meaningful when you need to get data based on date ranges, for example. Yes, you can edit the user filters but it is not that user friendly without ad-hoc development.
The current BI is a great step forward which, I hope, will keep on getting enhanced.  Any literature or presentation on this other than the one available in slideshare from the Open Days?

In the meantime I would say that the answer to the original post lays outside of Odoo due to the constraints already commented.

Is the advance search filters not deep enough for your case scenario? I
