Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) empowers your organization with best-in-class, modern analytics in the cloud. With machine learning–powered self-service analytics, data preparation, discovery, and visualization; intelligent enterprise reporting combined with augmented analysis; and natural language processing/generation, you can turn data into insights no matter your role—business analyst, data engineer, citizen data scientist, departmental manager, domain expert, or executive.
If you need insights in other environments, Oracle Analytics Server is available in Oracle Cloud Marketplace so you can run it on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), and it’s available on-premises. It's updated approximately annually to include features delivered in Oracle Analytics Cloud. Note that any timing is estimated and based on the calendar year.
To see a running list of recently delivered capabilities, check the What’s New guide in the Oracle Help Center.
The documentation in the Help Center also offers helpful tutorials on a wide range of topics and more than 30 videos to help you get going quickly with Oracle Analytics. You can let us know your questions, comments, and even suggest new product ideas in the Oracle Analytics Community.
