You need a database to store and manage the data that you analyze in Oracle BI Cloud Service. Oracle BI Cloud Service can integrate with Oracle Database Cloud - Database Schema Service or Oracle Database Cloud Service:
Oracle Database Cloud - Database Schema Service — Single schema-based service, included with Oracle BI Cloud Service.
Oracle BI Cloud Service is integrated with Database Schema Service so there’s no extra step if you want to use this database. See Using Oracle Database Cloud - Database Schema Service.
Oracle Database Cloud Service — Dedicated virtual machine with a fully configured, running Oracle Database instance.
You can configure Oracle BI Cloud Service to integrate with one or more Database Cloud Service instances. For this to work, Oracle BI Cloud Service and Database Cloud Service must be running in the same data center and your administrator must provide the connection details. See Managing Database Connections and Using Oracle Database Cloud Service.
Note:When you use the Projects view in Data Sync, you can use the Post Load Processing tab to post-process your Oracle Database Cloud Service data. If you have a default Database Schema Service target, then you can’t use Data Sync to post-process your data.
