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.

SAS Visual Analytics

It is particularly well suited to big data collections that have good structure. It is not really designed for unstructured datasets (documents, etc). Its strength is the processing speed (particularly when implemented on Hadoop). It is not cheap but it is worth it!

Pros

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.

SAS Visual Analytics

  • Our staff are familiar with it as it is a common tool. Our training and implementation was short.
  • Installation was easy. Our staff was able to deploy to the receiving department relatively quickly. Though the download was a pretty good size.
  • Seems to crunch through large volumes of data (millions of records) pretty quickly as I've received no complaints on this front from staff.

Cons

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.

SAS Visual Analytics

  • Customizing a report as per the user requirement.
  • Adding more color and font styles. Presenting data in a more colorful way.
  • The website has a lot of tutorials which is more inclined to the technical side. Maybe add more to the presentation side as well.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Analytics Cloud

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.

SAS Visual Analytics

SAS Visual Analytics stuck against IBM SPSS Modeler and Tableau in the sense that, it is far more accurate and reliable in the aspect of data and statistical analyses than others. Also, it is not just globally recognized as the leader in the field of statistical and data analysis, but also the most used statistical software worldwide. In addition, it combines the functionality of both IBM SPSS Modeler and Tableau which implies, it is comprehensive and has the widest coverage.

Return on Investment

Oracle Analytics Cloud

  • Essbase delivers well on the business objectives with executive reporting.
  • Essbase works well for financial close reporting purposes.
  • Essbase is good for providing a single source of data for company actuals, forecast and budget data.

SAS Visual Analytics

  • SAS Visual Analytics licensing cost should be reduced to enable users to use it in mass scale.
  • More statistical and mathematical equations and theories should be converted into SAS functions for reusing.
  • Because of enriched ETL and reporting capabilities SAS Visual Analytics is most preferred by business users.
