Arm Yourself for Analytics at Open World September 2016

If you are going out to San Francisco for Open World in September, you will find an explosion of information on Cloud, EPM, Big Data and Visual Analytic key themes such as:

Start Your Analytics Journey

See New Signals

Scale Your Insights

Analytics today offers so much more than before: easier access to more data, faster, for more people. No matter where your customers are with analytics, they have an opportunity to start a new journey – to more modern analytics, to new value, to the cloud.

With all the data around today, it’s impossible to sift through it to find what’s meaningful. With Data Visualization, customers don’t have to. Instead, they can see what’s important at a glance.


From individual to enterprise, anyone should have access to any data, anytime, anywhere. And it should be any way they want it, managed, self-service, both. Why choose, when having it all means powerful insights provide the maximum benefit to the business.

Customer Speakers who have uncovered real value and transformed their businesses with Oracle Business Analytics at Open World will include:

Oracle Data Visualisation License Pricing

I guess by now you have already downloaded your own copy of Data Visualisation Desktop (DVD) – having seen my recent post @ New in May 2016 Data Visualisation Desktop.

If you now have some customers who wish to buy it, I just wanted to clarify for you the Oracle Data Visualisation License Pricing:

- On premise, customers can buy ONE (1) Named User License, or more, for Data Visualisation.

- You do not need any other product with DVD – it can access most data and cloud sources (e.g. OBI is not required, nor is Oracle DB – although DVD obviously works well with these).

- The Oracle Data Visualisation License fee is $1250 per named user (minimum lowered to 1), and for this, customers receive both DV for OBI12c and Data Visualisation Desktop (DVD) – the price list can be downloaded @ US Oracle Technology Commercial Price List (PDF)

- When OBI12c and DV are licensed by processor, customers get 80 licenses of DVD per processor, again at no extra charge.

- Data Visualisation is embedded into both of the cloud services, the BI Cloud Service (BICS @ $250 pu/m) and in Data Visualization Cloud Service (DVCS) for $150 / Named User / Month.

- DVD is packaged at no extra cost with DVCS and BICS, so customers who subscribe to those services receive a matching number of DVD licenses at no extra charge. 

So please Tell Your Customers about Data Visualisation, and get all of your clients to Download DVD from OTN (and see the Documentation).

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.
