The user interaction with the solution could be better. It can be frustrating at times. Sometimes it depends on the database performance. 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.

This solution could be more adaptable in its application.

The solution could be more flexible. I faced issues with user level security administration and maintaining variables. The price of the solution could be lower. The dashboards should be more interactive.

The interfaces could be improved and some in-memory operations could be built into Oracle Analytics. We try to supply those kinds of things using database capabilities. Oracle removed things like cookies in its integration and that caused problems with SSL. I sent the reporting EDS which required a lot of work. It was more integrated with EDS, but now it's more standalone and it bothers me because it requires additional work when customers want to upgrade. Previously, that wasn't necessary so I think those kinds of things can be improved.

This product does not support custom charts in the visualization. At this time, dataflows cannot be shared, but I think that this should be enhanced. There are a couple of other limitations. For example, many reporting tools offer good features and oracle should learn from that. There should be tool tech enhancements.

Sharing dataflows is not possible at this time, and the custom chart functionality is not available. I would like to see making abbreviations as per the user's needs.

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.

The product should be improved in terms of connectors; right now the top twenty connectors are available, but OneDrive and Teradata are missing.

One area of improvement is associated with more connectors needing to be added such as Microsoft OneDrive, Teradata and a few others. I think the list is limited to the top ones now.
