Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"This is a stable and scalable solution.""It's great for consolidation and creating one source of truth.""The solution can scale.""A valuable feature is the speed of the solution.""It's really an enterprise solution. It has a dashboard, like standard dashboarding functionality. It also has reporting capabilities for producing pixel-perfect reports, bursting large volumes of a document if you need to. It has interactive data discovery functionality, which you would use to explore your data, bring your own data, and merge it with maybe the data from an enterprise data warehouse to get new insights from the pre-existing data. It has machine learning embedded in the solution. If you're new to machine learning, it's a really good way to get into it, because it's all within this platform, and it's really easy to use.""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.""The product is easily customized."

"You are able to see and follow trends.""The initial setup is quick and easy and you don't need special outside assistance to set everything up.""Tableau's most valuable features are user-friendliness and have a connection between multiple source systems. You can publish a report by using Tableau Public and there you can make your data online, not only batches of data, you can use it as an online analytical tool.""I like Tableau's heat maps and the storyboard. You can create data stories and tons of visuals with it, and it goes together really well. Tableau lets you manipulate the data in various ways.""Self-service is most valuable. Users can pick up quickly and do the resolution. There are a lot of out-of-the-box features, and it satisfies most of the needs. If users are properly trained, they can deal with any situation.""It's very easy to visualize data with this product. The visualization maps of and frames that we have been able to cross-reference has been excellent.""The most valuable feature is the interface, which is user-friendly and intuitive.""The stability seems to be very reliable."

Cons
"The price of the solution could be lower.""This solution could be more adaptable in its application.""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.""At this time, dataflows cannot be shared, but I think that this should be enhanced.""Its machine learning and visualization capabilities can be improved. There should be more visualization options.""The interfaces could be improved and some in-memory operations could be built in.""They could improve the ease of developing the dashboard and interacting with it."

"Overall, the only major frustration that I have had so far is with Tableau Public. I first used Tableau Public when I was building capacity, and when there was a later release to download and you wanted to upgrade, all your work would have to be manually re-entered.""When it comes to large datasets, the data should be extracted faster.""The data processing in Tableau is pathetic compared to Qlik.""I also work as an SME on the platform side. Tableau is very nice and jazzy for the end-users, but there are pain points for the admins. Performance is something about which we hear a lot of complaints, such as the dashboard doesn't open in time. It performs well on the desktop but not on the server. I know that there is always a limitation when it comes to a huge amount of data or the complexity of the calculations, but we often hear from end-users about the performance on the server side. It is easy to drag and drop all the columns and do what we want, but if it is not going to load better on the server, users are not going to like it.""If you mainly need a tool for BI reporting, it's not the best option. Tableau needs better abilities to generate simple reports, integrate, create databases, and work with data lakes.""The data preparation/blending options are very basic. They could be improved.""A strict security measure is needed. I believe it is weak in terms of security.""I would like the solution to have certain features allowing the delivery of reports to the email."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price is reasonable; it's quite a bit lower than Tableau and Spotfire."
  • "I don't know the exact cost, but its pricing was good. Its pricing was competitive. I would rate it a three out of five in terms of pricing."
  • More Oracle Analytics Cloud Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The company chose to purchase a creator license for me, which was $70. With that license, you can also be an administrator. We also have 20-25 extra licenses and they cost around $20-$35 each. Those are for normal users who will be viewing the dashboards. Those are monthly charges."
  • "The cost of the solution should be improved."
  • "It is reasonable and cheap as compared to other major tools. It has a good price, and people go for it because of its pricing."
  • "Pricing is not bad. It's competitive."
  • "At $70 per month, I think the price is a bit scary. I have a small consulting firm in Ghana, working in about 15 different African countries, and when it comes to our part of the world, $70 a month is a lot of money for software."
  • "The professional version of Tableau is quite expensive."
  • "It is a bit difficult for some people when they hear $70.00 per month, as some solutions are available for less than $10.00 or for free."
  • "The solution is very expensive. If you have many users then it is going to cost your company a lot of money."

    Comparison Review
    Guillermo (Bill) Cabiro
    I do use both Tableau and QlikView. Although very different, I really like both solutions. They belong to the new BI generation known as Interactive Visual Analytics. In my opinion, QlikView has a more intuitive interface for regular users or executives that are not technical experts but the development side is a little more complex. Up to version 12 QlikView did not provide drag & drop features. If a user wanted to see something not included in the application the new object had to be created by a power user or developer because Qlikview's scripting has somewhat of a learning curve. On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL allowing the integration of hundreds of different data sources into the same visual app. Another feature that’s extremely useful is Qlik’s proprietary Associative Model that allows the users to visualize data relationships that exist as well as those that do not. Tableau on the other hand is a lot easier to use for developers, analysts or power users who need to connect, manipulate and visualize data rather quickly. While this makes Tableau a better fit for the more analytical crowd, it may not be as appealing or intuitive to the regular or casual business users as QlikView is. Tableau has full pivot, drag & drop and drill down capabilities that are great for developers or power users. They can rotate measures and dimensions and graph them instantly using visualization best practices as suggested by… Read more →
