  • Financial Consolidation (Actuals)
  • Financial Consolidation (Forecast)
  • Financial Consolidation (Budget)
  • Divisional reporting
  • Management reporting and distribution
  • Integration with Excel
  • Ease of Cloud / Web reporting development
  • Exporting and building forms for either cloud use or Excel
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

OAC is a necessity if you are using other Oracle products and are managing a lot of data (larger companies, I'm talking to you). OAC was being used across most of the departments at my former company to collect data and access it from anywhere. It was efficient and obviously connected well to Oracle programs, but also to other sources.
  • Fantastic end-to-end business solution with OAC acting as the glue to hold it all together.
  • Customer service was phenomenal and we were able to get everything up and running in a short period of time.
  • Quick, reliable data that seamlessly integrated with our existing BI tools as well as external vendors.
  • Ease of use needs to be more heavily emphasized. Without some sort of IT background this will be virtually impossible to work with.
In my opinion, OAC works best to support operations across multiple departments, programs, and even countries as well as for integrating with legacy systems. It's all about extracting the right data from the right sources and having that information easily accessible from various endpoints. If you are centrally located with a small operation then there is little to no need for such a large BI tool that can sometimes be a bit overwhelming even in a larger company.

It's being currently used by one of the departments (Sales Dept) in the organization. It is helping to report sales operations data and it helps to make proactive decision by creating a trend analysis in the Oracle Analytics Cloud application.
  • Oracle Cloud Analytics Service is now just a 3 step process to complete the setup on the cloud and it becomes available for your analytics/bi reports purpose.
  • Oracle Analytics Cloud gives really great performance even for low capacity as 2 core cpu with 15gb memory.
  • Oracle Analytics Cloud also provides flexibility to have ESSBASE set-up with few simple steps.
  • Oracle Analytics Cloud Services comes with regular classic obiee and data visualization features, this gives lots of variety of graphical chart view/report views.
  • It does not have more options for emailing the reports as compared with what on-premise provides.
  • Once you upload the rpd metadata/data model there is no easy option to retrieve the uploaded rpd/data model from Oracle Analytics Cloud.
  • GUI for Oracle Analytics Cloud application still looks same as on-premise obiee, it would be good if they do some changes on look and feel for Oracle Analytics Cloud application.
Oracle Analytics Cloud is best suited where an organization is planning to move to Oracle Cloud Service with most of its application present in the enterprise architecture. This gives flexibility to have data load into Oracle Cloud data warehouse and makes it easy to report in Oracle Analytics Cloud. Oracle Analytics Cloud also imparts benefits by adding Essbase in it, where organization also wants to do some multi-dimensional analytics.
