“This is a superb tool for gaining the interest of key business executives in our customers, from which further business expansion opportunities will arise.”

What we will cover

Oracle Data Visualisation Cloud Service (DVCS) is a powerful user friendly tool which can complement your existing offerings and help you to maximize the value for your customers of your solutions with powerful visual analytics and storytelling.

Delivering powerful visual analytics accessible to your business users

  • Quickly uncovering and sharing hidden patterns and actionable insights
  • Visual storytelling. 100% self-service on every device
  • Exploiting the data in your solution via the connectors to Oracle SaaS Applications, Databases & Excel Files

The session will include both presentation and live demo and will give you the capability to develop simple business related offerings relevant to your customers and talk them through its benefits.

How to Sell your Partner BICS Solution Offer with the Oracle Sales Team

Internal to Oracle, we have a portal repository for the use of the global Oracle Business Analytics Sales Team, so they can easily find Analytics Cloud Partner Solutions (the “Analytics Cloud Partner Solutions Portal”).  This is private within Oracle to protect any partner ideas and confidential information: although it can of course also include any public information too (such as URLs to your web-site).

The portal holds details of all BICS & DVCS offerings from Partners that wish to collaborate with the Oracle sales team; and you can input and update your information to this portal. These Partner solution offerings can be, for example, quick start implementation services, and provide some pre-built content or “Apps”, built in BICS or DVCS, maybe with connectors to applications (ERP, CRM, HR...) that partners can implement to provide customers with a fast path to value.

Oracle Sales people select an area (e.g. EMEA from the regions menu) ... And then filter on multiple values including things such as Country, Industry, Data sources and so on.... These Oracle Sales people can then contact the partner to approach customers and to do joint marketing campaigns.

So, if you want to sell your Partner BICS Solution Offer with the Oracle Sales Team, then download this Partner Cloud Solutions Portal - Info Needed Guide.pptx * and send us your solution offers in the templates provided, and our sales team can then find you and introduce you to their customers.

* To download, you need to gain access to the Emea Analytics Partner shared folder. If you do not already have access granted (e.g. the link above does not work), then send to Mike.Hallett@Oracle.com your Oracle.com logon-ID, and I will add you.

Test Drives for BDD and BICS

We have updated the Test Drive kits for partners to run their own marketing events for their clients covering either BI Cloud Service and Visual Analyzer, or Big Data Discovery.

If the “Test Drive” idea is new to you, we have created for our specialised partners, the ability to run Test Drive Workshops for your customers. For example, a challenge you may be facing is how to easily show the business value of analytics to a set of customers.  We find the key to achieve this is to show best in class business analytic examples specific to a business person's role and needs - e.g. "HR analytics" for HR professionals, "Self-service Visual Analysis” for any business person, or “Big Data Discovery” for business analysts and data scientists.

These Test Drive Workshops are carefully scripted to allow a customer business person (usually not IT) to navigate for themselves around a series of dashboards and analysis targeted to show how analytics can help their business and drive ROI.

Oracle hosts the demo system for test drives, except for those that use BICS (where a partner needs to use their own BICS pod subscription). To access these, you need to gain access to the Emea Analytics Partner shared folder. If you do not already have access granted (e.g. the links below do not work), then send to Mike.Hallett@Oracle.com your Oracle.com logon-ID, and I will add you.

Partners can download these kits and guides for test drives such as:

We ourselves at Oracle are running these test drives for our customers, and you may wish to invite your clients to attend these too, for example we have these in the near future in the UK:

Oracle Visual Analyzer is now Available with Demonstrations for Partners

For a 3 minute introduction, see Getting Started with Visual Analyzer video.

Visual Analyzer is a web-based tool provided within the Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service (BICS) that enables you to explore data visually:

  • Creating visualizations is easy in Visual Analyzer with analysis becoming an individual experience in exploration and discovery.
  • Visual Analyzer enables you to experiment with a wealth of different options for how to view your data, and in this experimentation process, you find correlations, discover patterns, and see trends in your content.
  • In Oracle BI Cloud Service, you can create detailed analyses and carefully curated dashboards, and now with Visual Analyzer, end-users have faster, simpler assembly of detailed reports.
  • Visual Analyzer goes even further to give you dynamic views for focused, exploratory interaction with your data.
  • In addition, with Visual Analyzer’s capability to load external data sources, you get self-service mash-ups of data blending of governed enterprise data combined with your own files.

Partners who have their own copy of BICS have access to Visual Analyzer now, while others can request access to our demonstration services (see BICS Demonstration Environments).

Additionally, there is a set of you-tube videos of demonstration storyboards, while OPN Specialised partners can download the content, data and scripts for these demonstrations as well as a “Test Drive” script for you to use with your clients from the BI-partner-community shared portal (for access to this portal, email Mike.Hallett@Oracle.com with your company email id and OPN membership status).

Updated BI Applications v11 Test Drive Scripts

We have hosted the BI-Apps v11 Test Drive onto an Exalytics box, and have updated the Test Drive workshop manuals for the Finance, HR & Procurement Modules.

If the “Test Drive” idea is new to you, we have created for our specialised partners, the ability to run Test Drive Workshops for your customers. For example, a challenge you may be facing is how to easily show the business value of BI to a set of customers.  We find the key to achieve this is to show best in class business analytic examples specific to a business person's role and needs - e.g. "HR analytics" for HR professionals, "Spend Analytics" for procurement professionals, and so on.

These Test Drive Workshops are carefully scripted to allow a customer business person (usually not IT) to navigate for themselves around a series of dashboards and analysis targeted to show how BI can help their business and drive ROI.

Oracle hosts the demo system for this, and partners can book this facility and download the whole kit. We have different types of Test Drive such as:

    For the latest BI-Apps 11g scripts, and the Endeca test drive, you need to gain access to the Emea Analytics Partner shared folder. If you do not already have access granted (e.g. the link above does not work), then send to Mike.Hallett@Oracle.com your Oracle.com logon-ID, and I will add you.

    BICS Demonstration Environments

    Partners can now access BICS (OBI Business Intelligence Cloud Service) demo environments on the Oracle hosted “GSE” (Global Sales Engineering) https://demo.oracle.com.

    However, prior to making a request, a partner must register with GSE for access to the demo systems as previously explained here at OBI Foundation Demonstration Systems for Partners.

    In summary, OPN Member Partners can Learn more and Apply for Access to GSE ( ... and follow the link CLICK HERE for On Premise Demonstration Environments ), and once approved, can access the link to book and run “On Premise” OBI and BICS demos @ https://demo.oracle.com.

    As your partner business with BICS grows, I would recommend you will need to rent your own BICS “pod” on the Oracle Cloud, which you can then persist any demonstration, trial and POC materials you need for working with your clients, and to ensure you always have access to the very latest version of OBI on BICS. For OPN Member Partners, we are currently offering an attractive promotional rate for partners to purchase their own BICS pod for Demo purposes: for more information, contact me at Mike.Hallett@Oracle.com.

    FY15 BI Modernisation Sales Campaign

    Oracle partners have a great opportunity to help their customers to modernise their reporting systems. We propose you work with your clients and engage to help them on this journey to migrate or re-implement their analytic reporting and dashboard needs using our modern strategic BI Foundation Suite tools such as OBI, Essbase, BI-Publisher, Mobile-BI and Scorecards.

    Some customers still use older Oracle reporting software tools, such as Discoverer, Oracle-Reports, and Hyperion-Interactive-Reporting (as was BRIO), as well as legacy products from other suppliers. These customers are missing out on the value of the Oracle R&D investment of recent years in Oracle’s strategic BI products. Also, with the rise of Big Data, In-memory Analytics, Cloud and Mobile, the world has changed since customers purchased these older solutions: they need a modern BI technology that can help them meet the challenges of this new world.

    If customers retire the older systems, then they can save on higher administration and maintenance costs and support fees, which can be invested in a modern solution delivering much more value to the business.

    Tools and Resources for Partners

    See on Oracle.com the materials for Better Decisions and Better Productivity.

    Being more specific, you can download a guide on why and how to Migrate Reports to BI Publisher, and here is a 3-minute video-demo on the advantages of BIP.

    The following conversion tools are available:

    • Oracle Report to BI Publisher Conversion Assistant
    • Actuate Report to BI Publisher Conversion Assistant
    • And the following white paper describes a step by step approach on how to convert a Crystal Report to BIP

    Please find the documentation on downloading and using the above tools @ the BI Publisher OTN page.

    For the full Oracle BI Foundation Suite, you can download this excellent in-depth Technical White Paper.
