"The specific capability I find important in Oracle Analytics Cloud is that it allows the basic user to easily drag and drop data. I also like that the solution allows the user to decide what to measure and what to see in the reports."
"The features that I find to be the most valuable are the BAS (Business Analytics), the Narrate feature, and the auto-visualization."
"A valuable feature is the speed of the solution."
"This is a stable and scalable solution."

"The most valuable feature is the user-friendly set of tools that the customer can use to develop their own business dashboards."
"They were reasonable in terms of price."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to run it in Exalytics within memory coupled to a Repository on Exadata is where it flies. So it's not meant for mom and pop shops, but if you are a global 500 fortune 1000 company, this is a tool that can get you what you need on time and even in real time."
"In terms of features, everything is good. It is also stable and scalable."
"The solution is easy to use and very flexible."
"I like the cloud deployment feature. There are about 20 new features, and they are available on mobile and more. I haven't used any of them, but these features are highly attractive."

"They are introducing AI. There are good forecasting features and machine learning."
"The interfaces could be improved and some in-memory operations could be built in."
"As with most BI tools, the visualizations can be made much nicer. Currently, it has standard visualizations. They've been adding new visualizations, but we see animated visualizations from other vendors. It would be nice to have similar visualizations, such as the swarming visualizations, which are fairly new and very popular at the moment. I haven't seen that with Oracle. That would be nice."
"When we have, for example, a table with low performance, we have several issues with drawing some graphics in the Oracle cloud."
"Oracle Analytics Cloud is lacking in charts. They should add more charts to it."

"Its machine learning and visualization capabilities can be improved. There should be more visualization options."
"The solution needs to be easier to scale."
"There are a lot of aspects of Oracle OBIEE that are exceptionally complicated, make things unnecessarily difficult for everyone who uses it. In terms of the integrations, Oracle needs to improve a little more, but I believe that they have tried to capture all those issues. The issues we are facing in the Oracle OBIEE 12C versions, in the Oracle Analytical Server Center or Analytical Cloud versions, Oracle has managed to overcome the challenges."
"Expanding beyond pure data reporting and into analytics, or expanding data science, would be areas for improvement."
"It needs a better security management system."
"The ability to migrate from one version to another, such as doing so from version 11 to an upgraded 12 of Oracle business environment, can be difficult."
"It should have more self-service capabilities."
"For a beginner, this is a product that is difficult to learn. You cannot learn it quickly."
"The performance and the complex setup are the main reason for switching to Qlik Sense."

Oracle OBIEE Top Features
Reviews from Real Users
Sandeep V., Process System Engineer at a comms service provider, tells us, “This solution is very easy for people who are building ad-hoc things. It's an enterprise solution so it can be deployed for a lot of users. There are some great new features that come with the 12c like data visualization, desktop BI Publisher, automation, and interactive dashboards. The product has good features. “
A user who is a CEO at a consultancy relates, “The most valuable feature is the visualization. The data warehousing, data storage, and data wrangling are all features that are in there, and it's one of the better products out there. A good thing is that for large datasets, it's very stable, especially when you have an Oracle database.”
A user who is a Principal Business Intelligence Architect at a computer software company suggests, "It is very biased towards Oracle infrastructure. One of the major red flags we have at the moment against Oracle is that it doesn't support deployment on other cloud providers. We're quite heavily vested in AWS as our infrastructure, and Oracle is yet to formally support deploying on those virtual infrastructure instances. That's quite disappointing, and it also cuts them out of over 70% of the market."
