Oracle today announced that Forrester Research has named Oracle a leader in its “The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise BI Platforms with Majority Cloud Deployments, Q3 2017” report. This placement confirms Oracle Analytics Cloud as a leader in the analytics space.
“By offering a single, integrated platform capable of serving all of an enterprises’ analytics needs, including self-service data visualization, data preparation, embedded machine learning and predictive analytics, Oracle Analytics Cloud helps businesses improve efficiencies and drive innovation,” said Rich Clayton, vice president product management, Oracle. “Our unique, comprehensive platform can address the needs of executives, analysts and data engineers while helping reduce the time and financial resources necessary to integrate and optimize a plethora of technologies for data-driven innovation.”
In Forrester’s 22-criteria evaluation of enterprise business intelligence platforms with majority cloud-deployment providers, Forrester identified the 10 most significant vendors and researched, analyzed, and scored them.
Forrester notes: “With Oracle Analytics Cloud, Oracle supports the complete spectrum of BI needs at enterprise scale, ranging from self-service analytics to complex requirements leveraging Essbase’s powerful MOLAP engine. The vendor can also support hybrid scenarios. Comprehensive advanced analytics capabilities and natural language functions round out the offering. Customers of Oracle’s other applications (e.g., CRM or ERP) can gain additional benefits from the Common Enterprise Information Model, as the semantic layer extends across products. Existing Oracle customers will also welcome the increased licensing flexibility. With Oracle Day by Day, Oracle has made a fresh start on mobile, focusing on users’ information needs rather than on simple BI delivery.”
