Oracle Named Visionary in 2020 Gartner MQ for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms

It's 2020—the start of a new decade filled with promise, change, and good things to come. For the past few years, we've been all-in with Oracle Analytics Cloud, and like the lyrics to the current pop song, High Hopes, we've been "shooting for the stars" and "always had a vision! Always had high, high hopes." 

We're thrilled to announce that Gartner named Oracle a Visionary in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms. Along with our customers and partners, we've diligently worked to make Oracle Analytics Cloud the best analytics solution it can be. Our vision is crystal clear, and we're excited to be named a Magic Quadrant Visionary. But we all know that we must continue to provide value for our customers and partners every day for them to thrive and grow.     

Read the Gartner report and see for yourself. 

Our Vision

Since Oracle Analytics Cloud's inception, we've believed the next big wave of innovation and business success will be driven by three factors:

  1. Augmented analytics empowering more people with better insights. Machine learning and AI embedded in the customer experience direct decision-makers to the "Why?" not just the "What?" connecting the dots across a broad spectrum of data.
  2. Better insights leading to decisive action. Once you're armed with facts—especially in the context of your roles and responsibilities, you need to take action to close the loop, make adjustments, and improve performance. Having those insights driven directly from the business applications and key performance indicators (KPIs) that anticipate where you're headed means actions are taken with pinpoint accuracy. And all supported by a full enterprise Oracle Cloud stack—from infrastructure to data to analytics to business applications.  
  3. Natural language and conversational analytics becoming the norm, not the exception. Use spoken or written language (not just English, but 28 languages) to ask questions of the data— "Show me sales pipeline by product family and region for the second quarter of 2020." Let the system generate relevant analytic content on the fly. Interact in the form factor that makes the most sense for you—on your mobile device, through a digital assistant, on the web. You access the information you need without having to enter the business intelligence (BI) application if you choose not to.

With these as our guiding principles, our work continues on the path to market leadership for augmented, action-oriented analytics.

    Congratulations, Oracle, on being named a a "Visionary" in Gartner's latest *Analytics* and Business Intelligence platform! In the report, Gartner highlights Oracle's Augmented Analytics as being a factor in their determination of being a visionary, combined with their full-stack enterprise cloud offering. It's great to see a validation of Oracle's efforts in their (simplified to three) Analytics product offering.
