Rated 5 out of 5 byGauravSingh1 from Stable, reasonably-priced, good support, and the BAS and narrate features work wellWhat is our primary use case?I am a software designer and a part of the technical team and we create the dataflows for the end-user.What is most valuable?The features that I find to be the most valuable are the BAS (Business Analytics), the Narrate feature, and the auto-visualization.What needs improvement?Sharing dataflows is not possible at this time, and the custom chart functionality is not available.I would like to see making abbreviations as per the user's needs.What do I think about the stability of the solution?Oracle Analytics Cloud is stable.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?It's a scalable product.How are customer service and technical support?The technical support that we are getting from Oracle is pretty good.Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Previously, I worked with Tableau, Spotfire, and SAS VA. Tableau and Spotfire are a little advanced when comparing with OACs (Oracle Analytics Cloud). The customizations and making the licenses to suit your needs is pretty easy.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The price is reasonable; it's quite a bit lower than Tableau and Spotfire.What other advice do I have?Depending on the needs of business to business, but as far a visualizations are concerned, this is a good product. Anyone can update for Business Intelligence.I would rate Oracle Analytics Cloud an eight out of ten.Which deployment model are you using for this solution?Hybrid CloudDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 byGauravSingh1 from Good dashboards and reporting, secure, and the machine learning enablement is helpfulWhat is our primary use case?This product is used for reporting and visualization.We are not using the latest version but rather, one version back.What is most valuable?From a financial or bank perspective, this product is secure enough.The dashboards, analytics, visualizations, and different reports are valuable for business analytics.The AI/ML enablement is useful, as many reporting tools do not offer machine learning models as of now, without writing customized code.What needs improvement?This product does not support custom charts in the visualization.At this time, dataflows cannot be shared, but I think that this should be enhanced.There are a couple of other limitations. For example, many reporting tools offer good features and oracle should learn from that.There should be tool tech enhancements.For how long have I used the solution?We have been using Oracle Analytics Cloud for approximately three years.What do I think about the stability of the solution?This is a stable solution and we plan to continue using it for at least another year.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?I believe that this is a scalable product.How are customer service and technical support?We have been in contact with Oracle technical support and we are satisfied with it.Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I have worked with many reporting tools including SAS Visual Analytics, Spotfire, and Activu.There was no specific reason for switching to Oracle Analytics Cloud. This was a decision driven by the priorities of the moment.How was the initial setup?The time required for deployment is almost an hour.What about the implementation team?Deployment requires a small team of people. One from admin, another from the development team, and one more.What other advice do I have?I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.Which deployment model are you using for this solution?On-premisesDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 byreviewer1505316 from Very easily customized; scalable and stableWhat is our primary use case?Our customers use Analytics Cloud, they are always E-Business Suite customers. The product is generally used for transactional data because for EBS there is no discovery support. We build Analytics on-premise or on cloud and use E-Business Suite for financials and logistics. All reports are developed using Oracle Analytics aside from the principal ones or standard reports coming from inside E-Business Suite. We generally work with enterprise size companies that use various analytics and reporting tools, not just Oracle Analytics. I'm a managing partner in a consulting firm and we are customers of Oracle.What is most valuable?We use Analytics because we have a model for it which can be easily customized. Implementation time can be reduced because of this.What needs improvement?The interfaces could be improved and some in-memory operations could be built into Oracle Analytics. We try to supply those kinds of things using database capabilities. Oracle removed things like cookies in its integration and that caused problems with SSL. I sent the reporting EDS which required a lot of work. It was more integrated with EDS, but now it's more standalone and it bothers me because it requires additional work when customers want to upgrade. Previously, that wasn't necessary so I think those kinds of things can be improved.For how long have I used the solution?I've been using this solution for three years.What do I think about the stability of the solution?The product is stable.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?The product can be distributed so it's scalable. Our largest customer is a telecommunications company that has almost 10,000 users.How are customer service and technical support?We are okay on support so we don't need to use Oracle technical support much.Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I've used Tableau and I like it. Reports are very fast and I like their interfaces and things can be inherited from or inspired from the other tools.How was the initial setup?Installation takes two or three days if you install on-premise, it's the customer's choice whether it's installed on cloud or on-prem. The time-consuming thing is analyzing the reports and building a report for it. We have five engineers who deal with our projects. Our technical personnel are all engineers.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?There is a paid license that is required and then the customer pays us for customization.What other advice do I have?I rate this solution an eight out of 10.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:Partner

Rated 5 out of 5 byDennis Kevogo from Simple to set up and user-friendly but very expensiveWhat is most valuable?It's rather user-friendly.The solution can scale.The stability is good.It's easy to set up.What needs improvement?The cost factor needs to be improved. When you want to scale up and improve the computing power, it becomes extremely costly.They could improve the ease of developing the dashboard and interacting with it.They can also improve, quite critically, the user interface. It's not as intuitive as Qlik Sense.There should be improvements in Auto ML, automated machine learning, and, if possible, even robotics process automation.For how long have I used the solution?I've used Oracle Analytics Cloud for two years now. The company has been using it for close to five or six years now.What do I think about the stability of the solution?It's quite stable and quite sustainable. There are no bugs or glitches and it doesn't crash or freeze.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?While you can scale, it can get expensive.When you want to scale it up, you eat resources in terms of computing power, storage, querying, and everything else. It becomes very expensive.While It's possible to scale anytime upwards or downwards, the cost factor becomes an impediment.How are customer service and support?While technical support is quite good, it's slow. We need to raise a ticket. After that, it can take up to two to three or four hours for them to respond. For Qlik Sense, in contrast, it's just direct. We just call them or we just email them or even Whatsapp them, and they will immediately respond, set up a call, and that's it. They solve it.Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We also are familiar with Qlik Sense. For Qlik Sense, we are proceeding to be ISA partners and have used it for six months.How was the initial setup?The initial setup is straightforward. It's not overly complex. The deployment itself took about a year.We have two people that are available to maintain the solution.What about the implementation team?We handled the implementation completely in-house, without the assistance of any integrators or consultants.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The pricing could be a bit lower. it's a bit expensive right now, especially as you scale up.We pay $50,000 on a yearly basis.What other advice do I have?We are an ISA partner.We are using the latest version of the product.If there is a simpler, faster, or cheaper solution, then a company should go for it. Look at the Gartner Quadrant, as, clearly, Oracle is not yet a leader. We have Microsoft, we have Qlik Sense. If a company can factor in other solutions first, it's best. The key advantage of Oracle is, that once you've got your account, at least you have access to the autonomous data warehouse and you have access to automated machine learning, (AutoML) and so on and so forth. Beyond that, it's just so expensive. I wouldn't advocate for somebody to go for it.I'd rate the solution a six out of ten.Which deployment model are you using for this solution?Private CloudDisclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:Partner
