Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services is well suited for companies that don't want to have deal with physical infrastructure and want a high level of security and availability. In most cases Amazon Web Services is a great option for most, but may not be an option if you have met the tipping point of physical cost vs. Amazon Web Services cost. It may end up being a better option in the long run to manage the infrastructure yourself if the cost per hour of Amazon Web Services is greater than what you can provide if your level of availability is equal to or greater than Amazon Web Services.

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

Cons

  • Some resources parameters needed and prerequisites are difficult to understand, even with services that have well-known solutions that are easy to understand. For example, IAM and SSO solutions are more complicated and confusing than other services.
  • Generally, the User Experience is lacking WITHIN services is poor compared to other comparable platforms, however high-level access to the many services in AWS is good - as compared to other platforms.
  • Some services seem fragmented - as interrelated functions withing services don't seem to provide detail weel without some work. The billing area is an example of where getting and reviewing information is difficult.

I would gladly rely on AWS for any large-scale application deployment. For prototyping and small-scale applications, a more heavily managed environment on top of the 'bare metal' virtual infrastructure, such as Heroku or Elastic Bean Stalk, is probably a more productive approach in most cases

Easy to use/learning curve. If you are new to the use of cloud storage, AWS is your entry point. If you have experience in that field, AWS is the way to go.

Availability is very good, with the exception of occasional spectacular outages.

Performance

AWS does not provide the raw performance that you can get by building your own custom infrastructure. However, it is often the case that the benefits of specialized, high-performance hardware do not necessarily outweigh the significant extra cost and risk. Performance as perceived by the user is very different from raw throughput.

Alternatives Considered

The particular services I am using in AWS is easier to set up and manage than Microsoft Azure. IBM Bluemix/Cloud previously has too many product beta and preview released along with their products. Microsoft also releases too many products in preview or beta.

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.

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

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.
