Data Visualization Cloud Service (DVCS) is a new cloud service that provides rich, consumer-style analytics, including intelligent data visualization, self-service data discovery, visual storytelling, as well as mobile consumption and authoring capabilities. With DVCS, any user can blend and visually analyze data from all relevant sources in just a few clicks, and quickly uncover and share hidden patterns and actionable insights. All of this can be done without the need for expert IT resources, resulting in faster time to value and significant increases in ROI.
Data Visualization Cloud Service (DVCS) is further differentiated by its compatibility and integration with the full breadth of Oracle’s analytics offerings. Oracle’s consistent technology approach ensures continuity of experience and portability across its entire analytics portfolio – in the cloud and on-premise – making it simpler for customers to adopt the environment of their choice and scale as their needs evolve.
Highlights and benefits include:
Stunningly Visual: The same data visualization capabilities are now available across DVCS, BI Cloud Service, and BI 12c, offering a rich consumer-style experience in every environment. Seeing data is as easy as dragging attributes onto the screen, with the best visualizations displayed automatically, no modeling or upfront configuration required. Related data is automatically connected, so highlighting data in one visual highlights correlated data in every other visual, immediately showing patterns and revealing new insights. All of this is part of a unified user experience that includes powerful search, guided navigation, and sophisticated filtering, creating a dynamic and richly contextual environment that makes it easy to find and share insights.
Self-service Data Loading and Blending: Easy, automatic data blending allows users to combine data from a variety of sources -- Oracle and other SaaS applications, on-premise systems, external sources and personal files. Loading data is as simple as browsing to a file and clicking to see a preview. DVCS automatically identifies attributes as part of the upload process and presents them in the guided navigation, so users can begin analyzing right away. Blending data is also a point-and-click process that includes automatically inferring connections between data sets, which are displayed in an easy interface so people can see how data is related and add or change connections as necessary.
Visual Storytelling: It’s easy to capture insights as visual stories, saving story points (snapshots of the analytic moment-in-time) and adding comments to highlight key points and discoveries. Stories are live and can be securely shared with anyone in the organization 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.
Instant Mobile: Analytics are automatically mobile, offering full access and authoring from any device. An adaptive design means the user experience adjusts for tablets and phones, making it equally intuitive in every environment to search, navigate, drill, filter, add new data, create new visualizations, and more.
Sophisticated Analysis: Visual analytics masks complexity, enabling very sophisticated data exploration by simply clicking to apply filters and drill, and dragging and dropping to create compelling dashboards. DVCS takes analysis even further with an easy Expression Builder for creating custom filters and calculations visually, which allows people to quickly extend and enrich their data.

Oracle put a stunning new visual face on data with the announcement of Oracle Data Visualization Cloud Service. Oracle Data Visualization Cloud Service eliminates the complexity typically associated with blending and correlating data sets. Easy, automatic data blending allows users to combine data from a variety of sources—Oracle and other SaaS applications, on-premises systems, external sources and personal files—and immediately gain new insights using visual analysis.
