Bottom Line:

Oracle has a lot of different technologies within its vast portfolio that can be used with Big Data, but it is the Analytics Cloud that is perhaps the best option for the widest variety of enterprise users.

The Oracle Analytics Cloud packages all the core capabilities that organizations need to analyze data in a self-service cloud model. Additionally, it is easy-to-use and priced on a consumption model that should make it easier for organizations to adopt as well.

Among the key differentiators of the Oracle Analytics Cloud is the platform’s automation capabilities for different types of analytics and Big Data analysis use-cases. Organizations that are already used to using Oracle tools, including Oracle’s namesake database, will likely be the most attracted to the Analytics Cloud offering.
