Install and enable Machine Learning on DVD 4.1 for Mac

DVD 12.2.4.1 is now available for download. It is mostly a stabilization of 4.0 and no new features are listed at this time. However, if you are using a Mac, you might want to check it out, as it's now possible to install machine learning addons! You will need a R distribution installed on your system. I'm running open source R 3.3. First thing you need to do is install forecast package, simply run a R session type > install.packages("forecast") You also want to check your version so run: > R.Version()$version.string [1] "R version 3.3.1 (2016-06-21)" On my system it's 3.3.1 - bit I only need the 3.3 part.   Next, you need to tell DVD where your R distribution is. To do that, open the file /Applications/dvdesktop.app/Contents/Resources/app.nw/oui/mw/bi/dvdesktopinstallation.json with your favorite text editor. You'll find reference to "/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.2/Resources/R" in two places - replace version 3.2 with the version you are actually using. The last thing to do is installing two apps which get installed with DVD: - Oracle Data Visualization Desktop Configure Python.app - Oracle Data Visualization Desktop Configure R.app If all goes well, your DVD should now have support for machine learning! PS: thanks to Mats Stellwall for the tips

Improved 2018 Free Trials of Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC)

This note updates my last article @ Free Trials of Oracle Analytics on Laptops and on Cloud. New for 2018 is the arrival of greatly increased free trial capacity for OAC.  The “burn rate” on all Oracle “free trial” PaaS and IaaS cloud services has been reduced, with for example, OAC trials at $0.10 per hour giving our customers and partners a month of Analytics and Big Data cloud service access to trial these services. “Free Oracle Cloud Promotion” The Free Oracle Cloud Promotion allows you to sign up for a 30-day free Oracle Cloud account and receive $300 in free credits to get started. During the promotion period, you will be able to try out all eligible IaaS and PaaS services. Your promotion is active until your Free Oracle Cloud Promotion credits are spent or the promotion period of 30 days has expired, whichever comes first. You have the option to continue using the same account after the promotion period by upgrading to a paid account. The “Try for Free” trials page has been updated to give an indication of how many hours of each service are possible with the trial, e.g. Database = 720 hours & 4TB of Storage; Big Data Compute = 3000 hours, Analytics = 3000 hours.  So don’t delay, Create a Free Oracle Cloud Account, and check out the FAQ about Free Trials.

Partners can Resell Universal Credits for OACS and Big Data

For easy adoption and ramp up of usage, partners should find the PAYG and minimum Universal Credits ($1k per month) options a great way to attract clients to start up an initial pilot project for Analytic Cloud (OACS), and then increase commitment to a larger on-going UC contract once a client is convinced of the business value and project’s success.  Of course, any customer who already has a Universal Credits contract can easily try OACS or Big Data Cloud within that; starting up a service for a few hours or days as required, and then setting OCPUs to nil to "stop the meter running" at any time. OPN Silver, and higher, members can resell Universal Credits for OACS, Big Data and all of the PaaS and IaaS cloud. To learn more about Universal Cloud Credits and Bring Your Own License Attend the free on-demand training here. There will also be a live webinar with Q&A for Partners on this “New Oracle Cloud IaaS and PaaS Universal Credits and the new BYOL to PaaS program”: Date: Wednesday, December 13, 2017 Time: 11:00 AM Central European Time / 10:00 AM UK - Duration: 1 hour @ Register today You can find on OPN the Partner Cloud Services Discount Schedule: As at 14/Nov/2017, you can see the “Universal Credits Model for PaaS & IaaS - Partner” Discount Schedule on Page 11 of 15 And the standard Customer discounts table on Page 12 of 15 The full price list is @ Oracle Universal Credit Pricing | Oracle Cloud And you can download from Oracle Cloud Services Pricing & Licensing on OPN: Oracle Cloud Platform as a Service and Infrastructure as a Service - Public Cloud Global Price List Oracle Cloud Platform as a Service and Infrastructure as a Services Public Cloud Localizable Price List Oracle Cloud Platform as a Service and Infrastructure as a Services Public Cloud Global Price List Supplement You can also download a copy of the standard Universal Credits contract terms. A customer can easily buy their own PAYG order on the Cloud Buy Now link, and can work with you, their partner, on a resell contract for Universal Credits when ready to adopt this as a lower cost option.  In the first instance, partners should contact their channel manager to create a resell contract for Universal Credits.

Big Data SQL 3.2 released

Big Data SQL 3.2 has been released and is now available for download on edelivery. This new release has many exciting new features – with a focus on simpler install and configuration, support for new data sources, enhanced security and improved performance. Big Data SQL has expanded its data source support to now include querying data streams – specifically Kafka topics: This enables streaming data to be joined with dimensions and facts in Oracle Database or HDFS.  It’s never been easier to combine data from streams, Hadoop and Oracle Database. New security capabilities enable Big Data SQL to automatically leverage underlying authorization rules on source data (i.e. ACLs on HDFS data) and then augment that with Oracle’s advanced security policies.  In addition, to prevent impersonation, Oracle Database servers now authenticate against Big Data SQL Server cells. Finally, secure Big Data SQL installations have become much easier to set up; Kerberos ticket renewals are now automatically configured. There has been significant performance improvements as well.  Oracle now provides its own optimized Parquet driver which delivers a significant performance boost – both in terms of speed and the ability to query many columns.  Support for CLOBs is also now available – which facilitates efficient processing of large JSON and XML data documents. Finally, there has been significant enhancements to the out-of-box experience.  The installation process has been simplified, streamlined and made much more robust. Requirements: Big Data SQL requires:  Oracle Database 12.1.0.2  August 2017 Proactive BP (12.1.0.2.170814 #26610322)  One-off Big Data SQL Patch (#26170659) CDH or HDP Cluster

Oracle Analytics Cloud - Data Lake Edition Available!

The new addition to Oracle Analytics Cloud lets business analysts explore all data in data lakes and blend it with personal, enterprise, or external sources. Armed with that ability, discover new insights, rapidly enhance and enrich those data sets and then create data flows that scale to the needs of the project. A data lake is a massive repository that may include semi-structured, unstructured, and even raw data. Analyzing business data has become such a must-have capability that many business leaders turn to data lakes to gain insight and create a competitive advantage. Data lakes represent the more natural state of data compared to other repositories such as a data warehouse or a data mart where the information is pre-assembled and cleaned up for easy consumption. Oracle Analytics Cloud, Data Lake's built-in fast layer with Oracle Essbase and Oracle Database Cloud serves the resultant data across the enterprise, delivering fast, interactive visualization and a layer of governance on Big Data. The platform complements existing analytics by giving recommendations for data enrichment and visualization. These are powered by machine learning to make analytics users more productive. Oracle Analytics Cloud, Data Lake Edition unlocks Big Data analytics at scale on Oracle Big Data Cloud and Apache Spark. It also introduces automatic creation of machine learning models, which can be applied inline to intelligently augment data and data flow creation and execution. In addition, analysts can draw from hundreds of Oracle Advanced Analytics and Spark functions to further enrich their data and data flows as well as: Immediate feedback in data preview Function Shipping: Pushdown of execution into sources Native execution in Spark for Data Lake Big Data initiatives are an important part of growing an organization, but the process is still complex and challenging for everyone involved. "By delivering an end-to-end, unified platform that simplifies and accelerates Big Data analytics projects in the cloud, we are minimizing challenges and helping customers increase their rate of success. Our vision is to empower our customers to analyze any type of data from any source for everyone," said Greg Pavlik, senior vice president and CTO, Oracle Cloud Platform. For more information about Oracle Analytics Cloud, Data Lake Edition, check out our product site. Original article by Michael Singer.

PBCS Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service Add-on Option Pricing

An existing PBCS customer can add a selection of the modules packaged up otherwise in EPBCS (Enterprise Planning Cloud).  These provide additional functionality out-of-the-box as a simple extension to PBCS which can be subscribed to on a Hosted Named User per month basis (pu/pm): and provide partners with an excellent way to up-sell and extend project implementation services with great value to your clients. Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service Options Financial Statement Planning (includes Strategic Modeling) $65 pu/pm Capital Expenditure Planning $65 pu/pm Workforce Planning $65 pu/pm Project Financial Planning $65 pu/pm   The Financial Statement Planning module is focused on the bottom up Operational Planning process. The Strategic Modeling module is focused on long range modeling. Both modules complement each other and together complete the top down and bottom up planning cycle. Since both the modules deal with financial planning, in general they are being sold as part of the same price list SKU (i.e. within either EPBCS or the PBCS-add-on "Financial Statement Planning".  For example, what are the ways for customers to get Strategic Modeling? Option 1: Buy EPBCS @ $250 pu/pm Option 2: Buy PBCS with Financial Statement Planning Option @ $125 + $65 pu/pm = $190 pu/pm User numbers do not need to match, so you can have 100 PBCS users, and 10 of these can have the extra Financial Statement Planning Option.

Oracle Analytics Cloud Instances for Partner Demonstrations

  Partners can now access pre-configured Oracle Analytics Cloud Instances for demonstrations to your clients.  These are hosted by Oracle (“GSE”) at demo.oracle, with access and scripts for partners detailed here @ Oracle Analytics Cloud (OBIBAC111D01). For partner access to https://demo.oracle.com/, see @ Hyperion and BI Demonstration Systems hosted for Partners.  Once you have access, see: Read Me First.docx OAC Demo Overview Video (2 Min) OAC Demo System Briefing Replay (40 minutes) * The Oracle Analytics Cloud demonstration instances include many pre-configured examples of Data Visualisation, BICS, Essbase, BI Ask, Day By Day, Fusion Integration, and Advanced Analytics. Note: This is for partners to use only for demonstration and internal training purposes, and typically, if you enter a demo registration for a customer demo you could keep the environment for up to 2-3 weeks.  If a partner enters a demo registration for a learning opportunity, you could keep the environment for 1-2 weeks. The demo setup is not fully like the public cloud, since we do not allow you to load custom software onto the image, nor can you access environments outside demo.oracle, and nor can you instantiate new services, for example.  It is setup to show customers OAC functionality, not for deep customization or demanding POC activities. * To download, you need to gain access to the Emea Analytics Partner shared folder.

The Power of Prediction with Advanced Analytics and Data Visualisation

Read this White Paper on The Power of Prediction with Oracle Analytics, and pass it on to your clients. The integration of advanced analytic capabilities in Oracle Business Analytics takes a number of forms, ranging from native capabilities available out-of-the-box through to tight integration with the widely used Open Source statistics and analytics package “R”. Traditionally, these types of analysis have been the realm of advanced users, not accessible to the broader business community. Oracle changes that by making available the power of predictions to business users quickly and easily, often through a simple menu click.  More advanced users, can also extend these existing capabilities by registering their own R functions into Oracle BA. Try this out for yourself on the free-trial Laptop version of DV which you can download: click “Get it” and go. You may also like to compare this to some competitors such as @ Oracle Analytics vs Tableau and Alteryx * * To download, you need to gain access to the Emea Analytics Partner shared folder.

Why Partners like Essbase

Essbase ("Extended Spread Sheet dataBASE") helps you extend and differentiate your analytics solutions: especially for existing Oracle BI partners and using the new Oracle Analytics Cloud with Essbase. Most analytics tools are essentially “Read-Only” – that is why Excel is so popular, because it lets you input data, work on it with formulae, and then analyse it.  But, spreadsheets are essentially 2-dimensional (row-column) and single user.  People often try to collaborate with spreadsheets via email, but most would acknowledge this is a messy and error prone approach. So imagine you could have a multi-user spreadsheet, which is also multi-dimensional (e.g. time, sales-channel, product, customer-segment, accounting-code… etc), and can hold huge amounts of data – which was also easy to use and access with analytics tools such as Oracle BI, Data Visualisation, Excel and Smart-View.  That is Essbase: it un-leashes business people from the limitations of spreadsheets and enriches any analytics application with Workflow to collaborate with 100s or 1000s of people on entering new analytic data, forecasting, modeling multiple assumptions and What-if-Analyses to better understand the effect of decisions on the business.  For example, that is why Essbase is the foundation for our pre-built Planning and Budgeting application.

New Oracle Analytics Cloud with Essbase

A brand New “Oracle Analytics Cloud” service (OAC) is now available with Essbase. With processor based pricing for unlimited users, OAC can be cost effective for BICS customers who need large numbers of Named Users. OAC includes Oracle Data Visualization, Oracle Business Intelligence, and Oracle Essbase Cloud with the Smartview Add-in for MS Office; and Oracle Day by Day. OAC can be used as a standalone analytics solution or in parallel with other Oracle Analytics solutions. If you currently use DVCS or BICS, you may want to continue using those services and also use OAC. Or you may want to consider moving your analytics entirely to OAC. If you use Oracle Essbase on premises, you will find the new features of Oracle Essbase Cloud very valuable, such as modeling in Excel and uploading to Essbase in minutes, Design-by-Example, and sandboxing, among others. OAC subscription pricing is based on CPU/Month and per CPU/Hour, rather than per Named User (as it is for BICS and DVCS): you subscribe to as many “OCPU”s as you need to run Prod, Dev, and Test instances of BICS/DVCS and Essbase (or even for BICS/DVCS only or Essbase only). And of course this can be linked to other Oracle cloud PaaS and IaaS services as needed, such as for Compute, Storage, Integration, Database and Big Data. We will be scheduling some live partner briefing webinars with configuration and sizing guides in the near future – watch this space and I will let you know how to join these. In the meantime if you have a customer keen to buy OAC and you need some help, please let me know.

Oracle Tax Reporting Cloud Service launch

New on the Oracle EPM Cloud, we now offer Tax Reporting Cloud Service (TRCS). Multinational organizations’ tax departments, are firmly in the cross-hairs of the national tax bodies of all the countries in which they operate. This has led to national tax regulation changes in many countries, with many flavors, which means organizations need to plan and manage their tax affairs very differently than they have to-date: such as in how transfer pricing now has to be reported based on a "master file" and "local files" under country-by-country reporting (CbCR) regulations. Oracle Tax Reporting Cloud helps by connecting the processes, data and metadata that tax and finance share like financial planning, the financial close, and regulatory reporting. The solution delivers: Best Practice Tax Reporting Out-of-the-Box Tax Process Improvement Framework Seamless Transparency between Tax and Finance Take a quick tour of how to bring Tax and Finance together Watch More Videos of Oracle Tax Reporting Cloud Read more You can download the Partner Deep-dive training on TRCS (originally done in Feb 2017) from the Tax Reporting Cloud Service Training folder *   (* To get logon access to this folder if you do not yet have it, email your Oracle ID and Partner company name to Mike.Hallett@Oracle.com.)

EPM Cloud – the Modern Guidance System for Business

EPM Cloud is big business for Oracle Partners, who have two great opportunities to deploy their skills in deploying solutions for The Modern Finance Leader, by adding value to Oracle’s large customer bases in both Hyperion EPM, and in Oracle ERP. Probably the biggest opportunity is to appeal to the many Oracle ERP customers (both on-premise and those with SaaS ERP) who are looking for easily deployed, integrated planning and EPM applications to compliment their ERP. While those with Oracle’s Hyperion EPM, on-premise, want to both add extra capabilities to their integrated EPM set of solutions, and will also be looking for best practice advice on how, why and when they might look to migrate on-premise applications to the Oracle EPM SaaS cloud. With the simplicity of the cloud, Partners can enable client companies of any size to drive plans for predictable performance, report Financial Consolidation with confidence, and connect the entire organization. Make sure you and your clients are up to date on all these available solutions: Enterprise Planning Cloud The Oracle Enterprise Planning Cloud puts you in control and keeps everything connected. Whether you are in corporate FP&A, sales, marketing, HR, or operations, everyone wins with the simplicity of the cloud. Planning and Budgeting Cloud Enable businesses of any size to quickly implement a world-class planning and budgeting solution with Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Profitability and Cost Management Cloud Discover and Act by understanding your Profit and Loss Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud Dramatically reduce the time and cost to complete a close with Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud.

What is New in Oracle Data Visualisation v 12.2.2

See the Whats New Playlist - Oracle Data Visualisation Update - Oct 2016 : DV 12.2.2 Oracle’s Data Visualization portfolio takes another leap forward with the release of Data Visualization Desktop DVD 2.0, extending its’ rich data discovery and visualization experience with new capabilities that surpass the competition. Go beyond just visualization. Let’s face it – pure visualization has been commoditized. However, many visualization tools need expensive add-ons to provide comprehensive data preparation, auditability and re-usability of data. Replace mixed bags of tools with Oracle Data Visualization to seamlessly integrate visualization and data preparation, not to mention a full featured cloud. Empower business leaders with analytics, not just analysts. Business leaders have usually been limited to consuming another’s analysis. Unshackle them with Smart insights, search based BI, and let them “talk” to their BI-engine to get instant answers to pressing questions. Start now - No need to wait.  Download and install DVD 2.0 on your laptop, and start making the most of your data in as little as 15 minutes.  What’s New Connect & Prepare.  DVD 2.0 delivers a whole new experience for accessing and managing data: Connect to more sources:  a host of new connections means DVD 2.0 now supports over 40 sources, covering everything from the most-used personal data to the top big data sources including CSV; Microsoft Access; Google Cloud, Analytics, and Drive; Amazon Aurora and EMR; Hortonworks and MapR Hive; IBM BigInsights; and many more – see the product for the full list.  Powerful self-service data preparation: Surpass the competition with the integrated, full featured data flow functionality that provides auditability, consistency  and re-usability of data preparation steps.  See the demo video. Easier data management:  a redesigned Data Sources page makes it easier to find and create new connections, and the Create New Data Source page now offers the option to add filters when connecting to database sources. In addition, DVD 2.0 tracks the location of Excel source files, enabling users to refresh data in their visualizations as they work. Together these offer a more streamlined way for users to get data and make it meaningful for analysis.  See & Detect:  Go beyond The competition with smart, intuitive, and easy ways to explore data and get insights without manually creating visualizations. This extends the reach of analytics beyond “analysts” to everyone. Smart insights: the first step towards cognitive BI, Smart insights visually describes the data by generating a series of charts generated using best practices. These visuals, available at any time with a click, visually profiles the data, enables instant identification of hidden data patterns and data quality issues. As easy as search:  "BI Ask" in DVD 2.0 means finding insights is as easy as typing into the search box.  Intuitive keyword search uses fuzzy matching and natural language processing to look across the projects and data sources to dynamically generate visualizations as users type. New visualizations and extensible framework:  in addition to new visualizations such as timeline, parallel coordinates, network, and more, DVD 2.0 includes a Software Developer Kit (SDK) that allows developers to create custom visuals that integrate natively with the tool, enabling users to easily incorporate preferred and industry-specific visualizations to meet their needs. One service – cloud and desktop.  Desktop is just another device to use your Data Visualization subscription. Subscribe to either DVCS or BICS and get Data Visualization Desktop for every subscriber.
