What is the difference between Oracle Analytics Cloud and Oracle OBIEE?

Hi, I'm pretty new to Oracle and don't get what the difference between Oracle Analytics Cloud and Oracle OBIEE is. 

Can anyone clarify it to me? Thanks.

OAS/OAC is the latest Oracle release to supersede Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE). Here are some of the main advantages for OAS/OAC.


  • Business users benefit from enhanced Data Visualization and Data Preparation features.

  • Augmented analytics with machine learning capabilities become available to end-users.

  • Analytics platform remains Oracle supported so you get the latest features and remain certified against updates to related Oracle and 3rd Party software.

  • With OAS, it becomes more viable to deploy both OAS and OAC in a hybrid manner.


The majority of OBIEE features, besides a few specific capabilities, continue to be available after the upgrade to OAS/OAC. Whether its data visualization projects, classic BI dashboards, or BI Publisher pixel-perfect report bursting, all these capabilities may be upgraded to OAS/OAC.

Thank you for the help!  @Susheel A 
Is it right that Oracle Analytics Cloud and Oracle Analytics Server have the same features? The difference is that OAC is on cloud and OAS on-premises?

@Husein Said - Yes that is right. OAC is the cloud version with similar features

Oracle analytics is a cloud service, while OBIEE is the actual product that provides this service and usually involves installation and configuration on-premises or utilizing IaaS.

If OBIEE is the actual product that needs to be installed then what is Oracle Analytics Server and what is the difference?

Hi,


In Oracle Analytics Cloud you will have the equivalent of OBIEE under the "Classic" user interface (so with the underlying metadata repository, Dahboards to display the analysis, KPI and reports, BI Publisher for pixel-perfect reports (with bursting), Agents to distribute reports and files on a scheduled basis, ...).


But you will also have the "Data Vizualisation" user interface to create reports and graphs with augmented analytics (data profiling, recommendations, automatic insights, predictions, ...) in a more self-service mode. 


You also have features like "Data Flow" (an ETL for the business users), "Machine Learning", "Natural Language", ... And as the name suggest in the Oracle cloud.


As far as I know, OBIEE is no more proposed by Oracle.


Hope this helps.
