Likelihood to Recommend

9 Spokes

Good for letting your investors, employees and others know at a glance how your company is doing. The interface is clean and organized well. I just wish more of the app's functionality was available for testing and implementation. "Coming soon" is not really encouraging when we already have been waiting for a year or more.

Oracle Analytics Cloud Service

Well suited for large, global, multi -currency, multi -departmental deployments, where timezone, language and consolidations is a challenge.Departmental reporting can take various forms. The key is the seamless roll up and easy drilling into reporting details makes the process much more convenient and time saving

Support

Support was helpful in the beginning but no longer needed because I didn't use the software as much. The experience that I did have with support was very friendly but not enough to give a good review. If the support team was called for initial setup, video chat or messenger app was used.

Alternatives Considered

I actually chose QuickBooks (currently using) and Method (used for a month) before deciding that 9 Spokes is just good for looking at a few apps in one place. I'll keep checking back with them to see if they have improved. I wouldn't be surprised if 9 Spokes improves their product within the next 6-12 months.

Oracle EPM Cloud seems to be the leader in this space. By my estimation, OACS is definitely leading the big 3 (IBM Cognos and SAP, being the other two) in terms of being progressive, features, dev tools for the end user, end user empowerment and plain old marketing.

Collaboration and Sharing

9 Spokes7.0
Based on 1 answer
Access control capabilities are OK. Ease of sharing is great because the app design is made special for that purpose. I haven't dove that far into the app enough to generate reports. Formatting is very flexible because 9 Spokes allows the user to customize how the info is displayed. Security or lack thereof is not a factor for me so I am unable to give feedback on security.

I will hand it to Oracle on the collaboration front. They have taken many strides to make sure the distribution and ease of collaboration within this platform is of high quality. Being in the cloud, this is easier to achieve

Data Integration

9 Spokes5.0
Based on 1 answer
I gave 9 Spokes a five because the range of data sources is minimal. Ease of merging data from disparate sources is pretty good for the ones they do support. I just want to have more apps available for arranging on their nice looking interface. Perhaps next year my review for 9 Spokes will be better than 5

Currently all sources of data within OACS comes from the Oracle universe. We use JDE for the GL and even so have had persistent difficulties integrating the two sources. It is definitely not real time, as we have a team of consultants working on this and other integration projects.
