Oracle Analytics platform provides both direct query and caching options. Direct query enables data to be ingested into the analytics layer directly from the data source itself at query time. Choose a custom balance between direct query and caching depending on the analytics use case. Analytics queries are automatically optimized for each data source for best performance.
An in-memory engine built into Oracle Analytics boosts the performance of slow or legacy data sources. Boosting slow systems means frequently run query data is cached and optimized for analytics, which then provides high-performance consistently to users. Once data is cached, modern analytics capabilities, such as Auto Insights and machine learning, can easily be run on that cached data. This extends legacy data management systems that are missing modern capabilities.
