Researched Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse but chose SAP Business Warehouse: Good for reporting, but has poor technical support and lacks many important features
Find out what your peers are saying about Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse vs. SAP Business Warehouse and other solutions. Updated: March 2020.
407,242 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The analytics have been very good. We've found them to be quite useful.
I really like the auto-tuning, auto-scaling, and the automatic load balancing and query tuning in the system.
I loved the simplicity of loading the data and simply relying on the self-tuning capabilities of ADW.
Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse is used globally to deliver extreme performance on large Financial data sets.
In terms of stability, comparatively, the solution is quite stable.
The features that I have found most valuable are its capabilities to connect to Excel and to slice and dice.
Having the back-end data set with the right information is the best qualification for this solution.
The solution has functionality that makes it easy for end-users to readily extract data directly from Business Warehouse into Excel and carry on their analysis on their own.
The warehouse is the solution's most valuable feature.
The most valuable feature of this solution is the advanced structuring of data capabilities. You can get different structures of data to suit your needs.
The key element in this solution is its rapid response. If you have a question about prices, buyers, customers, providers, or services, you need the answer in a minute or two. That's the key benefit for us that a solution like BW gives us.
We are currently in a basic stage of analytics and the first goal we have is to make sure the numbers are correct. BW has some features that help you to build factors and ETL in such a way that it's easy to get to correct responses. That's the number one condition that you have to have in an analytic solution.
Sometimes the solution works differently between the cloud and on-premises. It needs to be more consistent and predictable.
I would like to see an on-premise solution in the future.
I would like to see Application Express and Oracle R Enterprise fully supported, and I would like to see Oracle Data Mining supported as a front end.
An improvement for us would be the inclusion of support for an internal IP, so we could use it directly with the VCN in Oracle Cloud.
We are very unhappy with technical support. First of all, they send their sales agents or pre-sales agents and most of them who don't know the solution as a properly trained tech would. We have an on-site SAP representative who is supposed to help us with our high priority and production issues, and they're not satisfactory to say the least.
A few things which are missing include the visualization of reports. That's where your costs and licensing become heavy. When it comes to this database compared Microsoft Warehouse, it's an expensive solution.
I would like to see a different end solution in order to read the data and attract internal users.
More integration with Microsoft Office products (not just Excel) would be helpful.
The solution could offer better connectivity with other databases.
The advanced structuring can be complicated and the interface is not very intuitive.
One of our requirements is the ability to easily get answers regarding trends and exceptions. In BW, it is not that easy to get such information. I expect better trend and exception detection, better pattern detection.
You can start quickly but, when you have to get a little more detailed, when you have to change something, when you have to solve problems, it's not that easy. It's easy to start but evolving is not that easy.
