Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Analytics Cloud Service

We used Oracle's Analytics cloud service as a visualization tool for our data sets. Oracle's Analytics cloud service helps us identify and analyze device functionality and user behavior. We also use the tool to keep each department up to date and understand the progress of certain projects. The application helps us understand pain points of the customer experience and how we can improve those.
  • 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.
Oracle's Analytics solution is extremely robust - providing lots of features and capabilities for organizations to utilize and visualize their data. However, I would say this application is really for enterprise solutions. Oracle's solution requires dedicated resources to implement, manage and maintain (like any enterprise solution). If your business is large enough, this will not be an issue. However, smaller-medium sized business will have difficulty starting out with this. Many applications on the market (i.e. Birst) provide similar functionality for significantly cheaper. It really depends on your organizations needs and requirements. It is important to note Oracle's solution is extremely scalable and secure!
Variety of different data sources can be pulled into their analytics tools:

  • Extensive documentation on how to connect (makes it extremely easy to reference something if you run into an issue) specific data sources. Ability to pull data from multiple sources
  • Easy to install and create parameters
  • The ability for role-based access control. Cant set your own access and permission levels for reports
  • The ability to share reports across different departments, ability to export if needed as well for deeper analysis
  • Ability for ad-hoc reports
  • Warranty support
  • Customer/sales tracking
  • Understanding user and device behavior
  • User location and distribution
