AWS is like the IBM of cloud infrastructure. It's hard to really go wrong with it. If you do, it's probably your own fault.

Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service

Well suited:Perfect for organizations where they have multiple databases and they have to damp everything in a single tool. This is helpful not only to joint databases together (shipments with POS data for example) but also for employees to learn only ONE tool to get all the data they from different sources.Less appropriate:If you need to go deep into analyzing the data beyond a table. The data visualization properties are pretty limited compared to Tableau/Power BI/Spotfire.

Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service

Pros

  • The development and administration tools work well, including a consistent API and adequate management console. In terms of business process, it provided an effective "escape valve" for new product development that would have been much more onerous to deploy if we had to provision physical hardware and arrange for associated IT resources.

  • 1: Data Integration: I love that at Whirlpool we have several different databases in the same place and we can extract and combine data easily.
  • 2: Connection with multiple systems: A lot of companies use Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service, so it means that they are seeing a lot of different use cases and improving the tool constantly.
  • 3: Data extraction: Extracting data is much easier than writing a SQL code. So many different types of users can take advantage of that.

Cons

  • Standardize service availability across all regions. Not all services are available everywhere.
  • Service limits can be difficult to manage
  • Isolating teams within a shared account is almost impossible due to inconsistent security policies/features.

  • In an implementation where developers do their work on-premise RPD and deploy it to BICS, Oracle BICS will convert that RPD to data model before deployment. Developers can take a snapshot of that data model and download that data model. But, can't convert / extract that data model to RPD. This is one limitation that I would like to see some improvement.
  • Oracle BICS has no BI Publisher integration. BI Publisher is used by many customers and is one of the reasons that they are delaying BICS migration.
  • Oracle BICS lacks iBots (Scheduler). This is one of the most used feature in traditional OBIEE, where we can schedule reports to run and email to us / set of users. Lack of this feature is a major drawback of BICS.
  • Oracle BICS lacks the forward migration path, as of today. If we want to migrate to OAC (Oracle Analytics Cloud), there is no way to extract RPD out of data model. We may have to develop RPD from scratch, if we used BICS solution to develop data model. Oracle is planning to release a fix for this in the future.

A paradigm shift from companies like Microsoft that have made procuring and using software and license so hard. Not to mention installing, configuring and hiring folks to maintain it. AWS makes it so easy to have an enterprise infrastructure that scales up and down and very affordable

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.

Alternatives Considered

AWS is the industry leader and is far ahead in terms of a feature rich product offering along with worldwide presence

Better:Easy integration with different systems (internal, such as SAP; or external, such as data coming from tables from your vendors). Many companies use it and it's a good tool to learn. In my case, I learned at P&G and when I moved to Whirlpool I already learned how to use it! And I use it very often in my role.Worse:Well, if I need to do anything beyond a table, line or bar chart, I export the data and use a different tool.

Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service uses IAM (Identity and Access Management) to control security and what each user can do. This is a most comprehensive security model compared to traditional on-premise Business Intelligence because IAM can control both server level and application level access. As Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service is a complete web interface, it comes with all the natural advantages of on-premise Business Intelligence solutions like Sharing Reports easily with their own group. It lacks report distribution via email. But has all on-premise traditional Business Intelligence formatting capabilities.

Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition is known for this connectivity to multiple data sources. Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition can connect to any database that supports ODBC and JDBC. Almost all the major databases today support ODBC and JDBC. Visual Analyzer, which is a part of Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service is a game changer as it allows users to generate reports directly from Microsoft Excel / CSV - which is the most used format after relational databases to store data. Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service can connect to all data sources that an on-premise Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition can connect to.

Return on Investment

  • Some campaigns needed dynamic scaling and setting up a massive infrastructure to meet the demands would have been impossible if it was not for the AWS services that we used. The traffic volume was enormous and AWS did an awesome job within the budgets we had in mind.
