OAC: Proven solution for your analytics needs!

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Available without of the box connectors for Salesforce and oracle Saas Cloud. This is a huge plus for our business since we don't need another middleware solution just for this sake.
  • We are able to connect to our on-prem SQL Server database where we have our RMA database and other applications seamlessly without writing custom APIs.
  • OAC writes directly into ADW which is another advantage for loading Excel files into ADW after dataflow transformations.
  • OAC allows replication of the database from fusion ERP and lets us create subject areas using the data modeler.
  • OAC should allow writing back into Oracle Saas Cloud.
  • OAC Canvas view has some limitations in terms of choosing colors for the chart objects and other objects.
  • It doesn't allow the drill to detail options like that available in classic view for drilling to analysis from canvas view.

Pros and Cons

  • Data can be fed by any source, via Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle HCM, Oracle Sales Cloud etc. This gives a holistic and comprehensive view of the data.
  • Apart from applications from Oracle, data from third-party sources can also be accessed, namely Google Analytics, Salesforce, Dropbox etc.
  • Oracle Analytics Cloud is mobile and tablet friendly.
  • It can handle large data sets in visualizations.
  • Oracle has lots of features in its roadmap and continuously coming up with new features. One has to watch out for the features in the roadmap.
  • There are a couple of known issues in the product. It is a good idea to go through them in the Oracle documentation.
  • Advanced analytics function does not work with Essbase data sources. Oracle is working on resolving it.
  • There are a couple of known issues with Mongo DB connection and data sources.

Oracle Analytics Cloud Review

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Oracle Analytics Cloud has a more powerful processing engine. We are seeing tremendous improvement in processing huge data/files.
  • Oracle Analytics Cloud is more stable and no more hiccups for updates/patches as it will be taken care of by Oracle.
  • Oracle Analytics Cloud's multi-layer security will add a bonus to this product. It is more secure.
  • Oracle Analytics Cloud performance is great and business users are very happy about this great product.
  • It will be great if they can do some UI improvements for Oracle Analytics Cloud, though the functionality is working perfectly.
  • It will be great if we can get some more access to the file system. Currently, we are limited to few objects related to applications and it will be difficult to address few issues quickly though we can address those issues using other methods(but time taking).
  • Apart from the above 2 concerns, we don't see any issues and everything is perfectly working and business users are impressed with the performance of their retrievals/reports.

Is Essbase Cloud the future for you?

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Hybrid cubes allow for quick aggregation of data so users don't have to wait for calculations to occur
  • Embedded Drill to both on-prem and Cloud sources. This allows us to extend the analysis and provide greater research capabilities.
  • Sandboxing allows for quick efficient what-if analysis without a ton of data replication.
  • It is lacking an internal scheduler so external schedulers must be used in automation.
  • The outline editor does not allow for some of the on-prem functionality like copying hierarchies between cubes using cut and paste.

Essbase Cloud is Good

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Essbase uses Excel as a user interface, which in itself is user-friendly.
  • Essbase as a multidimensional database is a very fast querying engine to generate reports faster.
  • Essbase provides a user write back feature for users to input data via Excel.
  • Essbase Cloud is a Sequel of its on prem version. For Essbase developers used to Essbase on prem, the interface can be much more user-friendly. Essbase on prem users are used to classic interfaces like EAS which will be missed.
  • The migration from Essbase on prem to Essbase on cloud can be made much more seamless.

OBICS sets the market standard for business intelligence tools!

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Handling data from multiple sources
  • Dealing with large volumes of data effortlessly
  • Easy to onboard new users, even those who are not familiar with SQL
  • 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.

OBICS - Standard for many companies

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • 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.
  • 1: User-friendliness: As I said, you don't need to write a SQL code to extract data, but I've seen some other tools (the previous Oracle Cloud system for example) that were easier than this new one.
  • 2: Speed: The tool is not slow, but when multiple users are trying to query information in the same database, it might get pretty slow. It's very common for people to run queries during the night since it's faster at that period once no one is using the tool
  • 3: Data visualization: The main output is basically a table, if you want to get fancy graphs or other types of output, you might want to export it to Tableau/Power BI/Spotfire.

OAC Server is the glue for all things Oracle

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Oracle BICS - Oracle BIEE + Cloud - A solution built on Cloud keeping only Oracle BIEE in mind

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Oracle BICS is a first debut of Oracle BI in cloud. BICS is designed to provide lot of flexibility. BICS provides three solutions - 1. Completely deploy all BI services (data model, Catalog and DB) in Cloud using BICS. 2. Deploy Catalog in Cloud. RPD and DB reside on-premise (Hybrid Solution) 3. Deploy Data Model and Catalog in Cloud. DB stays on-premise (Hybrid Solution). No other cloud offers this flexibility. BICS design is centered on BIEE and advantages of Cloud.
  • Oracle BICS provides industry standard security. For on-premise applications, SSL has to be implemented manually but now, it is part of the BICS package. We get SSL encrypted. When implementing BICS Hybrid Solution with DB on-premise, Oracle BICS provides Public Key to deploy in on-premise. BICS, having the private key, is the only authorized tool to access this database and run queries. No spoofing possible.
  • Oracle BICS provides flexibility to Developers. If the data model is simple, they can do the development over the BICS cloud. If the data model is complex and need advance features of RPD, they can do development on-premise using RPD tool and can deploy this RPD to BICS. BICS will then convert that RPD to data model.
  • Oracle BICS is a Cloud Solution. It is very important for many organizations on the location of the data center. It should be, at least, in the same region as the Organization is. This is important for performance as well. Oracle BICS has multiple locations across the world and especially, multiple locations with in the USA. These locations grow based on demand.
  • 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.

Oracle Analytics for Enterprise Businesses

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Ability to analyze large data sets and ability to create intuitive, easy to understand reports.
  • The vast number of connectors. We have the ability to pull in data from a number of other tools for deeper analysis.
  • Great set of out of the box reports/templates, however; tool provides the ability for customizating and building reports that pertain to specific issues an organization is trying to find.
  • Like any application, when you begin using it there is a steep learning curve. UI can be a bit cumbersome.
  • Even though Oracle's solution can handle large data sets, rendering of reports can take a fairly long time if the parameter set is large.
  • Oracle tool provides a wealth of capabilities and features, however; this comes with a heavy price. The tool can become expensive quickly.

New Beam for Oracle Cloud Data Analytics

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • 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.
