Dimensional Insight

In my experience, Dimensional Insight products are excellent. They are well suited to integrate data from multiple sources and allow for dissecting information based on dimensions defined. Once you understand the logic and the powerful functions available it is easy to use, specially if you get used to using integrated visual tools. The tunnels allow for selection of a subset of data from Diver portal and the dials are great to build markers and send files in different formats to users via email.

Oracle Analytics Cloud

Oracle Analytics Cloud is well suited for an environment where the data warehouse is well defined with star schema structures. It may not work if the data structure is not well defined in terms of complex reporting. OAC's Day By Day app is a clear win and a cool addition to executives whether it is integration with Slack or for identifying issues in realtime.

Pros

Dimensional Insight

  • The product is excellent!
  • Experienced DI Consultants with a broad knowledge in both, product and client data.
  • Customer service and technical support is always available; very professional and investigate reported issues until resolved.

Oracle Analytics Cloud

  • 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

Dimensional Insight

  • Technical documentation: make it easier to find examples or functions definitions.
  • Allow more flexibility in report design, maybe allow to combine columns.
  • I know with Diver 7.0 some of the missing functionality is resolved so I won't be suggesting any other improvement until we upgrade.
Odalys Corominas | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Analytics Cloud

  • Performance of the tool: While Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service (OBICS) can handle large volumes of data as well, it becomes quite unstable and slow when number of concurrent users is high.
  • Limited visualisation options for reporting.
  • Difficult to integrate with other non-Oracle tools. This is especially needed since visualisation options are limited.

Navigation thru the Diver portal is simple; some users have trouble but it also depends on how the analysts build models and present the reports with quickviews selections and report layouts. I am aware of DI capability to access reports thru mobile devices but I have not experience it first hand.

Overall support is very good. In cases where is a delay I have been notified of the status of it and what DI expert team is investigating. I might not get a fix right away depending on pending releases and when my company decides to plan for the upgrade but response time is good.

I don't have direct experience with the first time DI was implemented but on subsequent upgrades there have been positive experiences with support and seamless transitions to avoid users discomfort.

The major advantage of Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service comes in when a user has an Oracle centric development environment. As mentioned earlier, Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service is built keeping OBIEE and Cloud in mind. This is purely to provide Cloud advantages to their traditional on-premise Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition customers. As mentioned earlier, this tool provides 2 different hybrid solutions and one full cloud solution. Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service does not have a path for other tools to migrate. Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service has a Visual Analyzer which is a game changer. This provides all the Visualizations that all other tools combined can provide.
