We have a hybrid cloud deployment and use both AWS and Azure. I tried to use the Oracle cloud, however, I was unable to due to the budget. I'd rate the solution two out of ten. It really isn't the best.

I'm using Oracle technology: Oracle Analytics Cloud. It's a cloud subscription, so it doesn't have a software version. The solution is deployed on a private cloud. Fifty people are using Oracle Analytics Cloud within my company, and they are in the financial and sales departments. The solution is used across the company. My rating for Oracle Analytics Cloud is nine out of ten.

Our customers consist of enterprise companies. My advice to others is that they start with the solution as soon as possible. They should initially start small and go from there. I rate Oracle Analytics Cloud as a seven out of ten.

Depending on the needs of business to business, but as far a visualizations are concerned, this is a good product. Anyone can update for Business Intelligence. I would rate Oracle Analytics Cloud an eight out of ten.

It really has everything that I want and need. It's very easy. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten. It would be nice to see swarming kind of visualizations. Other than that, it's a complete product.

Oracle Analytics DV is not just a data visualization tool like Tableau or Power BI, but an entire data platform. Users can connect to multiple data sources including Snowflake, Oracle, and Redshift, and they can perform data preparation with complex formulas. They can create an Essbase cube in a click, replicate tables, store millions of lines in memory, analyze data using AI with the ExplAIn function, and create machine learning models.

Oracle OBIEE is designed to be relatively easy to set up and has a helpful customer support staff at the ready to assist customers. These are two attributes that make this system quite valuable. OBIEE is a program which is best equipped to serve larger companies that require a more expensive, higher-level, and more versatile type of solution. Companies of the type that seek out Oracle’s OBIEE network are going to want to minimize costs in the setup. Its straightforwardness is definitely something that large organizations are going to insist upon in such an important aspect of their business. Once that has been achieved, it would be in their best interests to have a dedicated team to help troubleshoot problems should it be necessary. Even though the support team is a separate cost. their quality of service may well be worth it. They work quickly and are able to tackle most problems that arise. OBIEE has a high level of flexibility because it can operate on the cloud. Additionally, it is relatively user-friendly. There are fewer log-in requirements in place here than there are with other similar systems. This allows for users to have greater ease of access to the system at all times. Manipulation of the system can be done with a certain ease that may not necessarily be true of something like Oracle’s Analytics Cloud. Users have the ability to create new dashboards for monitoring data without a high level of hassle. It is significant that this system can be wielded so easily. Oracle’s Analytics Cloud possesses many tools and dashboards that aid in the analysis of business-related data. Couple this with its affordability and Oracle’s Analytics Cloud is an excellent system. However, the program’s interfaces require improvement. Additionally, Analytics Cloud lacks built-in memory operations like cookies, which can make using it a bit more difficult. Conclusion: If you are a large company with a budget to match, then OBIEE will probably be a better choice for you than Analytics Cloud. However, overall Analytics Cloud offers an excellent program for a lesser cost than OBIEE. I would say that Analytics Cloud is the more easily accessible and useful product for the majority of companies.

Hi - That is best practice is to have a architecture review however, everything is online to purchase if you would like to buy without this step. Common Material we use to review would be Diagrams based off the customers environment, best practices of customers we have successfully deployed with. Tips--> I would make sure to have a sound understanding of your business, people and process prior to engaging in BI tool. Really understand your organization goals for now and future. Unfortunately many do not encompass future and only right now and then end up spending a lot of $$ later to re-implement/architect because their short term goals were price motivated. Ends up hurting you later if you do not plan for future.
