Oracle announced the general availability of Oracle Business Intelligence 12c (BI 12c), designed to deliver an entirely new experience for blending and visually analyzing any data in an enterprise-scale analytics platform. The foundation of Oracle’s analytics offerings, Oracle BI 12c allows people across the organization to leverage a single integrated platform for self-service, visual data discovery and quickly find answers to pressing business questions while in the office or on the go.
Analytics offerings today force organizations to make a difficult choice between business agility and enterprise scale: Desktop solutions offer agile visual analytics but are limited to user-managed or departmental data; traditional BI solutions offer scalable performance on IT-managed data, but compromise agile self-service and time-to-value. Only Oracle BI 12c delivers both in a no-compromise, modern platform that empowers people with stunning visual analytics as well as curated dashboards and analysis across personal, departmental and enterprise data. Oracle BI 12c advances the state-of-the-art with an integrated platform delivering self-service visual analytics, a re-imagined user experience, optimized in-memory processing, built-in advanced analytics and simplified administration.
“We were impressed with what we saw in the Oracle Business Intelligence 12c Beta program,” said Arvinder Singh, BI solutions architect, Land O’Lakes. “Data mashup is a big win for the business, allowing people to upload Excel data and combine results with existing OBI data for quick analysis and data visualization means users can quickly create meaningful, versatile dashboards without getting too technical.”
With the new enhancements in Oracle BI 12c, organizations are able to benefit from:
- Integration of data visualization and self-service data blending with enterprise analytics capabilities in the same offering, allowing customers to achieve the best of self-service agility and IT-managed reliability.
- Intuitive search-driven analytics enabling people to type or speak questions and receive visualizations in response, broadening the reach and adoption of analytics across the organization.
- Optimized in-memory processing for best use of system resources, enabling faster analysis on more data from personal, departmental, enterprise and Big Data sources.
- Simplified administration and a streamlined upgrade process, delivering significantly lower cost of ownership.
“Our customers recognize that making informed decisions at the speed of today’s business requires a no-compromise analytics platform – one that empowers people with visual analytics, without compromising scale and reliability,” said Hari Sankar, group vice president, Business Analytics, Oracle. “Oracle BI 12c provides an enterprise-class visual analytics platform with everything customers need – rich visual analytics and extreme performance, with simplified administration and governance.”
Oracle BI 12c offers compatibility and integration with the full breadth of Oracle’s analytics offerings, both on-premises and in the cloud. Oracle’s consistent technology approach ensures continuity of experience and portability across its entire analytics portfolio – in the cloud and on-premises – making it simpler for customers to adopt the environment of their choice and scale as their needs evolve.
