2019 Oracle Analytics Summit Brings New Vision

Author: Eric Russo | 3 min read | July 12, 2019

Recently our Datavail Analytics team had the unique opportunity to attend the Oracle Analytics Summit at Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, CA. This exclusive, invitation-only event featured Oracle Analytics leaders with the plan to reveal their new vision for the Analytic product line.


Did they deliver?

We think so.

The event began with introductions of new leadership in the Oracle Analytics space – namely, Bruno Aziza, Group Vice President, and TK Anand, senior vice president, AI, Data Analytics and Cloud. Aziza began the evening with coverage of a few customer case studies and some common messages between them all. From there, Anand dove into the meat – the new Oracle Analytics: “Today, we are announcing a new vision, product experience, and commitment to customer success that will enable us to collaborate with our entire ecosystem and deliver a new era of enterprise analytics,” he said.

The overarching change to Oracle Analytics is that it will now to both Oracle and non-Oracle databases, it is open and universal, and it’s now been combined into one product with three different flavors, as follows.

Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC)

This is their flagship product, the Oracle Analytics Cloud we’ve all known well in the past year or so. This is their self-serve, governed cloud platform. Not much change here.

Oracle Analytics Server (OAS)

This is Oracle’s private/on-premise platform which includes OBIEE. It’s an intermediate stop before going to Oracle Analytics Cloud. Sort of a cloud primer, if you will.

Oracle Analytics for Oracle Cloud Applications (OAX)

OAX supports Oracle Cloud SaaS – ERP and HCM – featuring all Day 1 KPIs, reports, and dashboards. It’s automatic via plug-ins, extendable, and customizable. Here are a few notable features we think are worth pointing out:

  • Powered by the Autonomous Data Warehouse and machine learning
  • Bot with “Explain” functionality (use English terms)
  • New unified homepage
  • Integration with ERP Cloud
  • Mobile
  • Voice enabled
  • Multi-language support

Oracle provided a demonstration of the OAX platform and continued the evening with an informative partner roundtable.

Finally, the Analytics roadmap was laid out for all in attendance as follows:

Q2 – ERP, Financials, EPM, Projects, and Risk Management

Q3 – HCM

Q4 – NetSuite

FY21 – Remaining applications
