The industry's only end-to-end solution for business analytics, Oracle Analytics Cloud includes a high performance analytic processing infrastructure at scale; a broad suite of tools for data preparation, discovery, visualization and collaboration; a pre-packaged suite of domain-specific machine learning models; packaged best-practice analytic key performance indicators (KPIs) to run your business; and large scale, curated public data sets all designed for analytics.
"Public Cloud deployments of business analytics software are still in relatively early stages of adoption. However, the market for Cloud deployments are expected to grow at a rate 5x greater than on-premises and other deployment methods. Oracle Analytics Cloud embraces the emerging hybrid data management and analytics architecture, delivers self-service data access and analysis, and will embed cognitive/AI functionality. These capabilities make the company well positioned to take advantage of this market opportunity", stated Dan Vesset, group vice president, Analytics and Information Management at IDC.
Oracle is the only company that unifies all these components of a modern analytics foundation including:
1. High Performance Infrastructure for Analytics at Scale
Oracle provides a complete set of very high-performance, elastically scalable infrastructure services designed for analytics processing on data of various types, shapes, and speeds:
2. Powerful Capabilities for Data Preparation, Discovery, Visualization, and Collaboration
Built on the high-performance analytics infrastructure, Oracle provides a complete suite of tools to enable anyone in the company to derive insights and share them:
3. Packaged Analytics and Machine Learning Models
Extending intelligence across the enterprise requires knowing the right metrics to measure and getting the guidance to understand those metrics in every aspect of the business. Unlike other vendors who provide platforms without data or expertise, or only offer artificial intelligence as the solution, Oracle delivers data, intelligence and expertise together. This includes hundreds of person years of analytical expertise tailored to multiple industries and business functions, embedded in core applications and extensible via a cloud-based analytics platform:
4. Packaged Curated Data Sets to drive Analytics
To drive more effective marketing, selling, e-commerce and customer service, Oracle also offers packaged and highly curated data sets to drive more effective business processes and more targeted analytics.
