Making sense of your data shouldn't be tough!

Visualizing data is a big part of making it understandable, actionable and in general useful. Oracle Data Visualization is stunningly visual and allows everyone to explore more data and gain new insights faster. 

Data is available on premises, in the cloud, and on the desktop, data can be structured and unstructured and a Data Visualization tool should effectively allow to work with any data, anytime, anywhere.

From data scientists, to business leaders, to regular everyday users, we need to combine and blend data by ourselves, get more answers, understand hidden patterns and trends,
and scale more insights with fantastic visualizations, allowing us to craft a our story/case supported by our data.  Visually,
Fast, Easy and Smart.


Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service (BICS) is the industry's first BI platform in the cloud that makes analytics available to everyone. Based on the proven Oracle Business Intelligence platform for creating powerful business intelligence applications, it's enabling users from the workgroup to the enterprise. On top of an Intuitive Cloud Experience, with a friendly interactive interface and built-in guidance and tutorials to get users productive quickly, BICS includes Advanced Analytics and Interactive Visualizations with the powerful Visual Analyzer (VA) module for databases.

Drag and drop to see your data visualized automatically, change layouts, and present new insights. If you have questions about your data, search just like you would online, or browse the guided navigation to find what you’re looking for everything on the screen is connected, helping you more quickly understand and find value in your information. When you uncover new insights, you can add comments to them to create visual stories that can be securely shared throughout the organization.  

  • Stunning, smart visualizations: Data Visualization Cloud Service displays the best visualizations for your data automatically—all you have to do is drag and drop. As you add new attributes and filters, the visualizations change to best reflect new data and bring clarity to your investigation. You can also change visualizations at any time, simply by clicking (no configuration required).
  • Automatic highlighting: Related data is automatically connected, so selecting data in one visual highlights correlated data in every other visual, immediately showing patterns and revealing new insights.
  • Guidance and search: Sometimes you know the data you’re working with, and sometimes you don’t. Powerful search, guided navigation, and sophisticated filtering work together intelligently to provide an easy, interactive path through your data, helping you find exactly what you’re looking for.
  • Everything connected: A unified user experience blurs the lines between dynamic discovery, dashboarding, and presentation, creating a seamless and richly contextual environment that keeps your exploration fast and fluid.
  • Visual storytelling and sharing: It’s easy to capture insights as visual stories, saving story points (snapshots of the analytical moment-in-time) and adding comments to highlight key points and discoveries. Stories are live and can be securely shared with anyone with permission; co-workers can click a link and be brought into the story, build upon it, and share it in turn, enabling the rapid, dynamic collaboration that drives improved decision-making and faster action.
