Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services is well suited for companies or organizations that need to run specific applications or virtual services on servers. The cost-per-server ratio makes this ideal for testing and live deployment scenarios. It is especially ideal for smaller to medium size IT development teams. If you are looking to just set up a website, for example, AWS may not be ideal unless you are having it custom built.

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.

  • Ease of use needs to be more heavily emphasized. Without some sort of IT background this will be virtually impossible to work with.

Support at AWS is great! The cost is low. Their business model is sound. They tend to benefit us.

The management console is the weak part of the service in my experience. It is adequate but slow.

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.

The API's were very well documented and was Janova's main point of entry into the services.

Alternatives Considered

AWS is usually the most affordable between GC, AWS, and Azure. If I was using a Windows machines only environment, I would go with Azure and for any other setup I would go with Amazon Web Services. For the record, AWS has been around longer than the others too

We tried Tableau Server about a year ago and although we liked the visual appeal of it, it was not as robust as we were hoping for. Additionally, we have several vendors that had expressed concerns with connecting their data to this type of service and so ultimately we ended up going with OAC.
