In its latest review of Enterprise BI Platforms with Majority Cloud Deployments, researchers with Forrester confirmed that Oracle has the strongest current offering coupled with a large market presence.
From the report:
"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."
