  3. 3.  Introduce custom knowledge into the enrichment knowledge base
    Oracle Analytics provides the ability to recommend enrichments and transformation for various data set 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.
Q1 CY2021
  1. 1.  Data quality insights
    Data quality issues within data sets 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.  Advanced self-service data sets
    Expansion of the existing data sets to include multiple tables and defined join relationships as well as tables for heterogeneous sources within a single join diagram saved as a single data set that can be shared and collaborated with across multiple users.

Data visualizations

Q3 CY2020—Delivered
  1. 1.  Placed customized filters on the canvas
    Create beautiful dashboards with full control of filter placement inside your canvas. You can now provide your consumers with the ability to access on-canvas filters for a more simplified analytics experience.
  2. 2.  Digitized custom map layers—create interactive visualizations from any image
    Easily create custom, interactive visuals from any image. You can upload images, define relationships between image areas to data values using a no-code design tool, and use these images either as interactive visualizations or filter experiences.
  3. 3.  Pivot/table flexible and persistent cell sizing
    Present your pivot tables with clarity. You can now control the column/row size within the pivot and table visualizations to fine-tune the experience to fit the data and your visual goal.
  4. 4.  Add a spark chart to any tile visualization
    Performance tiles are an important visualization in many dashboards, but sometimes there is a need for more data to tell a full story. Oracle Analytics’ performance tiles now include spark charts (mini charts) to display more data, such as trends.
  5. 5.  Waterfall chart enhancements
    Increasing the flexibility and scope of Oracle Analytics’ visualization capabilities is a key part of every release. For Q3 CY2020, we focused on improving the usability and applicability of waterfall charts in many use cases. With this set of improvements, you will be able to control various aspects of your chart, such as color setting for the start/end and increase/decrease bars. You will also be able to specify unique colors for a specific data bar that help identify key data points.
  6. 6.  Enable top/bottom N filters for attribute filter
    In addition to the top/bottom filter type for measures, we added a similar capability of top/bottom N for attribute filters. These advanced filter capabilities bring simplicity and power to analysts.
  7. 7.  Disable map gestures
    In some cases, you may not want to allow users to navigate around the map on your dashboard. This capability will allow you to disable integrative gestures on the map and leave the geo navigation to the data.
  8. 8.  Improved map rendering and interaction performance
    Rendering large maps with thousands of data points just got better, with increased speed and scale.

Augmented analytics

Q3 CY2020—Delivered
  1. 1. Register and consume Oracle Machine Learning models in data flows
    Machine learning models often exist in different platforms, which makes it hard for them to be used and consumed by business analysts. With this capability, you will be able to register machine learning models stored in Oracle Machine Learning in Oracle Analytics and use those models for predictive analysis within data flows. This leverages the database scale and performance as the execution layer, reducing data movement and increasing performance at scale.
  2. 2. Oracle Advanced Analytics functions in data flows
    Data flows will be able to use the Oracle Database unsupervised advanced analytics functions, such as dynamic clustering, regression, classification, and feature extraction, while function shipping the execution to the database layer.
  3. 3. Improved and fine-tuned forecast data quality
    New capabilities that improve and optimize the algorithms used for one-click forecasting enhance the quality of the data you use for analysis.
  4. 4. Additional output details for machine learning training data flows
    Machine learning training process output includes additional information about the training process and the resulting models for improved, explainable AI capabilities.
Q4 CY2020
  1. 1. Unpivot columns to rows in data flows for Oracle data sets using Oracle Advanced Analytics functions
    Support for the Oracle Database unsupervised Advanced Analytics function for quickly unpivoting data as part of the data preparation process.
  2. 2. Sample data in data flows for Oracle data sets using Oracle Advanced Analytics functions: Delivered
    Support for the Oracle Database unsupervised Advanced Analytics function for smart sampling of data to be used for machine learning training and other purposes where a representative subset of data is required.
Q1 CY2021
  1. 1. Improved natural language generation
    Creating narrative reports with natural language generation (NGL) is now even more powerful with the support of multiple attributes and measures using more inputs to generate in-depth analysis of your data. We will introduce additional data awareness to the NLG engine to generate focused insights.
Q3 CY2020—Delivered
  1. 1.  Responsive canvas layouts
    More dashboard design options will be added to allow responsive growth of the canvas on both axes based on author content and adaptation to different screen resolutions.

    Create your own ‘suggested viewing’ insights or proactive content publishing into Oracle Analytics Cloud Day by Day. The new administrator capability allows you to seed Day by Day feeds for all or some users.
  3. 3.  Improved visibility and usability of the canvas bar
    Creating a project means you will have many different canvases that you create and need to navigate. The improved content density of canvas names provides better visibility and quick duplication of a canvas for iterative report creation and testing.
  4. 4.  Duplicate/copy canvas to appear after the targeted canvas
    While duplicating or copying canvas tabs, new canvases now appear next to the original (instead of at the end of the list) for ease of accessibility.
  5. 5.  Improved system setting interface
    The system setting interface is streamlined for faster navigation.
Q4 CY2020
