Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Advanced Analytics

Oracle Advanced Analytics is being widely across my organisation. We have a wide and diverse buyer community and supply base. The nature of our business means there is a requirement for regular one off special purchases. Oracle Advanced Analytics helps us to interrogate our buying habits and history to deliver optimum purchasing and contract management.
  • Easy to interrogate large volumes of data.
  • Simple and intuitive report building.
  • Easy to save and modify reports. Easy to export to external programs.
  • Easy to disseminate tailored information to targeted end users.
  • Can at times fail to deliver results from the reports where data or coding is incorrect.
  • Formatting can sometimes be time consuming.
  • It would be nice to be able to copy information from the tool just by highlighting it rather than exporting it.
  • Oracle Advanced Analytics allows us to review our spend and identify opportunities to consolidate spend.
  • Oracle Advanced Analytics also allows us to easily identify suppliers with growing spend profiles which helps us target contract opportunities.
  • Oracle Advanced Analytics gives end users instant access to high quality data that can help influence our business decisions.
In the past I have used Crystal reports and Discoverer. Oracle Advanced Analytics is far better at delivering the results I am looking for. It processes information quickly and has a high degree of flexibility.
As mentioned before Oracle Advanced Analytics is great for analyzing, combining and extracting my company's data. It delivers flexible data that is easy to understand. It can at times be frustrating where fields that are available have generic names that are not used by my organization. This can result in wasting time trying to find data that may be held in fields that you don't recognize.
