Pros
"This is a stable and scalable solution.""The product is easily customized.""It's great for consolidation and creating one source of truth.""A valuable feature is the speed of the solution.""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.""Mobility is the most valuable feature for us. All employees can access it from anywhere. It is a big advantage for us.""The features that I find to be the most valuable are the BAS (Business Analytics), the Narrate feature, and the auto-visualization.""The solution can scale."

Cons
"The solution could be more flexible.""Oracle Analytics Cloud is lacking in charts. They should add more charts to it.""The price of the solution could be lower.""At this time, dataflows cannot be shared, but I think that this should be enhanced.""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.""Its machine learning and visualization capabilities can be improved. There should be more visualization options.""They could improve the ease of developing the dashboard and interacting with it."

    Reviews from Real Users

    Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the Oracle Analytics Cloud solution.

    Fabricio Q., Data Analytics Manager, says, “The main functionality is great and everything is pretty standard and easy to use. It's great for consolidation and creating one source of truth. The initial setup is pretty straightforward.”

    PeerSpot user, Eric B., Independent Consultant - Oracle BI Applications at Desjardins, mentions “It's really an enterprise solution. It has 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.”

    Gaurav S., Vice President Credit Risk Management at a financial services firm, explains, “From a financial or bank perspective, this product is secure enough. The dashboards, analytics, visualizations, and different reports are valuable for business analytics. The AI/ML enablement is useful, as many reporting tools do not offer machine learning models as of now, without writing customized code.”

    Another reviewer, Trinh P., Delivery Manager at Sift Ag, comments, "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."
