Stay In-the-Know: Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) Highlights  


Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) is a secure Cloud Service infrastructure that offers a suite of new collaborative metric features and visualization types to help your teams organize and configure data. At its core, OAC provides scalable analytical capabilities for you and your organization, enabling users to harness versatile service management capabilities, including simple patching and scaling, quick setup, and automated lifecycle management.  


OAC is a platform built for high performance, enabling the flexible storage of business intelligence data and providing users with tools to collect and harness these valuable data insights that impact strategic decision-making. These new features of Oracle Cloud infrastructure support your entire workflow, from data preparation to migration and delivery, unlocking value in empowering better business decisions across your entire value chain. OAC’s six-stage process covers data connection, preparation, modeling, exploration, sharing, and consumption. With that in mind, let’s dive in. 

  1. CONNECT  

The platform’s six-stage process begins with data connectivity, working to unify your data sources using a variety of out-of-the-box data connections. Additionally, OAC can use Java Database Connectivity to migrate legacy systems and other sources into the Oracle analytics server. Specializing in data aggregation and compilation, this cloud platform allows you to access all your data wherever you are located daily. It doesn’t end there, though, as OAC reinforces secure data creation, management, and connection with your direct team and across your corporation.  

  1. PREPARE  

Data preparation begins with ingesting, segmenting, and purifying your metadata using various algorithms. The preparation process then moves onto data flow, where OAC works to aggregate and transform data before scaling it with machine-learning models.  

  1. MODEL 

Data modeling and schemas allow you to develop trusted semantic models to ensure dependable ownership and visibility into the necessary data and subject areas. You may then utilize semantic models to verify numbers and profiling across your corporation. Enterprise users can join tables through direct self-service features and, with special permissions, share data models with teammates.  


OAC promotes data visualization types and interactivity across devices, premises, and the Cloud. Use your data signals to make complex ideas more understandable, meaningful, and engaging. Subject matter experts can easily share data discovery and collaborate with colleagues to combine machine learning insights and scale data analysis.  

  1. SHARE

It also allows you to collaborate within large corporations or small enterprises for simple data sharing without requiring varying Excel spreadsheets to be consolidated or managed beforehand. This Cloud platform supports quick sharing and analysis of spreadsheet data by many different team members. Curate detailed security measures that enable teammates to access only specific or preapproved reports and raw data.  

  1. CONSUME  

Access and connect with automated delivery of analytics and monitor business performance at all hours of the day from anywhere in the world. Unique patterns and interests within mobile apps create personalized recommendations to analyze data more in-depth. Application developers can also utilize interfaces to scale, tailor, and facilitate meaningful data-driven experiences within SAAS or application workflows.
