Stuck with Limited On-Premises Analytics?
Time to Migrate to Oracle Analytics Cloud
As businesses evolve, they often find that their original systems for managing and analyzing data cannot keep up with their pace of growth. To compensate, they may introduce new applications or processes to supplement legacy methods. Eventually the result is a multitude of siloed spreadsheets, cloud applications, desktop tools, and data warehouses all requiring separate business processes. Naturally, this makes it difficult to analyze and leverage data with speed and accuracy, but there is a solution: Oracle Analytics Cloud.
Why Upgrade to Oracle Analytics Cloud?
Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) is a scalable Oracle Cloud platform which provides organizations with the capabilities they need to effectively store, analyze, and derive actionable insights from their data. With this platform in place, embedded machine learning and natural language processing technologies combined will give you incredible data analytics and management capabilities, from modeling and preparation to visualization and collaboration. Plus, with more advanced data insights extracted from your business, you can make informed decisions which will improve productivity and business processes as a whole.
OAC has a full set of features which set it apart from older legacy systems your organization might still be using, which allows users to create collaborative analytics with speed and flexibility, including:
One of the key elements of this platform is its integration capabilities, which allows organizations to easily join disparate data sources and gain valuable insights that would otherwise be difficult to obtain. Data analytics is about much more than just generating reports after all – it is about understanding the underlying data and using it to make better decisions that impact the growth of the entire organization.
And with a platform like OAC, you don’t need to be an expert to access those data insights. OAC is very easy to navigate with minimal training, as it has a simple drag and drop interface that users of any skill level can use to compile data on your organization’s performance, growth and more. The powerful data visualization tools within the platform make it easy to identify trends and patterns from across all your freshly integrated datasets.
On top of the data & analytics capabilities you would expect from an analytics platform, OAC also supports robust data security for your organization. With single sign-on authentication you can reduce your risk of having your data hacked into, and you can also manage object level and data level security within the application itself.
- Gets Better Over Time with No Upgrades
One of the best aspects of this platform is that it gets better over time, without users having to invest in upgrades or add-ons. OAC automatically patches, maintains and upgrades as needed, and Oracle provides new, tested enhancements every quarter. This is a stark contrast to companies that are stuck with on-premises, legacy reporting and analytics platforms that increase a company’s technical debt each year and require large projects to upgrade.
Behind the scenes of all of OAC’s features lays its built-in machine learning capabilities which power Augmented Analytics – enabling data and business analysts to achieve in minutes or hours what used to take days or weeks. There is rarely a user requirement which OAC cannot handle, and without it, you would likely need multiple products from various different vendors to replicate it.
Improve Business Performance
As every organization will have its own data configurations in place, developing a customized Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics strategy is key to your future growth and success. BI refers to the software and services used to transform data into actionable insights. So, when we talk about BI and Analytics, we’re talking about both the strategy involved in data management, and the technology used to execute those strategies.
Data and analytics insights, when leveraged correctly, can be a key driver of better business results. Once you have implemented an enterprise BI and Analytics solution like OAC, you will have set yourself with a streamlined workflow that runs automatically, analyzing the outcomes of processes and compiling key metrics about your business operations, which are the backbone of your organization.
Metrics are the backbone of your organization, tracking expenditures, resources, consumer behaviors, market trends, campaign results and much more. Without a modern analytics platform to track, compile and deliver actionable insights from these numbers, your business will most likely struggle to keep pace.
