    Dataset snapshots will offer a custom refresh schedule to retrieve fresh data from data sources and applications based on a predefined and predictable schedule.
  2. 2.  Introduce custom knowledge into the enrichment knowledge base
    Oracle Analytics provides the ability to recommend enrichments and transformation for various dataset columns based on built-in knowledge and a machine-learning–based data profiling engine. Custom knowledge will allow you to introduce your own enrichment sources into the knowledge system. This capability will automatically introduce these sources into the profiling engine which will generate appropriate recommendations when similar patterns are identified.
  3. 3.  Advanced self-service datasets
    Expansion of the existing datasets to include multiple tables and defined join relationships as well as tables for heterogeneous sources within a single join diagram saved as a single dataset that can be shared and collaborated with across multiple users.
Q2 CY2021
  1. 1.  Data quality insights
    Data quality issues within datasets sometimes surface only after the data is visualized and explored. In some cases, the issues remain unseen unless specifically queried. Oracle Analytics data profiler can automatically identify quality issues and present a quality insight for each column that surfaces any possible issues. You can then fix the issues interactively and have greater confidence in your analysis.
  2. 2.  Increased limits of rows processed by data flows
    Increase row limits that can be processed by data flows.
Q3 CY2021
  1. 1.  Web-based semantic modeler
    Newly designed semantic modeler to create semantic layers on top of federated sources. With full compatibility with existing remote desktop protocols (RPDs), the new semantic modeler introduces a modern experience and focus on team development, version control, and lineage analysis.
  2. 2.  Semantic model markup language
    With the introduction of the new semantic modeler, Oracle Analytics will also announce the semantic model markup language (SMML). This open, JSON-based format will allow semantic developers and third-party tools to create and modify Oracle Analytics semantics models using standard editors, codes, or scripting languages. This open format will open the possibilities for higher level of integration with homegrown and third-party applications.

Data visualizations
