Preface

Learn how to get started with Oracle Analytics Cloud.

Topics:

Audience

Getting Started with Oracle Analytics Cloud is intended for consumers, analysts, and administrators using Oracle Analytics Cloud for the first time:

  • Administrators create services, manage access to Oracle Analytics Cloud and perform other administrative duties such as backing up and restoring information for others.

  • Analysts load data, model data, visualize data, and create reports for consumers. They also perform sensitivity analysis with data to understand future impact, and initiate processes to collect and consolidate data. Analysts also test data scenarios, collect data and consolidate it.

  • Consumers work with their favorite visualizations, reports, and customize their dashboard pages. Dashboards allow consumers to quickly analyze and manage activity across their system. They also participate in data consolidation workflows.
