Thanks

  • When you say "Analytics Cloud report from Data Virtualization desktop to Mobile App" - what do you mean by that? That's 3 different technologies / products - potentially more.

    OAC = Oracle Analytics Cloud

    DVD = Data Vi*S*ualization Desktop - a *desktop* visualzation tool. Not virtualization

    "Mobile App" - do you mean the mobile apps for Oracle Business Intelligence which exist for Android and iOS? Or do you mean "Oracle Day by Day"?

    Your question is very unprecise

  • Thanks Chris for the prompt response.

     

    I am talking about Oracle Analytics Cloud. 

    Mobile App I mean Oracle Day by Day

     

    Question1: Can we develop analytics report for OAC in Data visualization tool? If no, then which tool can be used?

     

    Question2: After developing the report, how can we deploy into Mobile App?

     

    Highly appreciate your help.

     

    Thanks

  • Ok some more terminology clarifications:

    - OAC produces "Analyses"

    - "Reports" are produced by BI Publisher which is included in OAC since 17.4.5. But "reports" and "analyses are two totally different objects created by two different toosl and technologies. Analyses are dynamic analytical analyses while reports are pixel-perfect, mostly static, reports for printing or PDF output for example.

    - Data Visualization produces "Projects"

    Day By Day connects to any OBI or OAC server:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/q9i0glbaucu1p27/day_by_day_server.png?dl=0

    So Day By Day shows whatever is in that connected server for your user. There is no "copy things over". It's just a different window through which you look at your content. OAC, on-premises or Day By day - it's transparent.

  • Thank Chris for sharing this valuable information. I just want to know how can I deploy analysis on OAC server or is there some tool other than Data Visualization Desktop, that can be used to create and deploy OAC analysis.

     

    Thanks

    Did you try OAC itself? It comes with a full interface to develop analysis in 2 ways: either the old OBIEE Answer interface or the new Data Visualization interface which is just like DVD.

    So what else do you look for better than OAC itself to develop content there directly? No need to deploy it, it's already on the server.

    I am still having a hard time to understand what you are trying to do or even asking for. Why would you want to use a *desktop* tool to create something that's then deployed on a cloud solution?

    Maybe you should first understand the different products, what they do and how they work and then you think about how you go about doing things. Oracle Sales would of course be happy to sell anything and everything to you but for your sake it would be good if you first knew what you wanted.

     

  • That's what I tried to point out above.

  • Ashish did you give up on this thread or did you go into OAC and see that the analyses are created there directly?

  • Hi Chris

    I am still exploring OAC. Today, I am able to create a very basic analysis on OAC instance. I saved the same in sharefolders/POC but I am unable to query this analysis on homepage to view the analysis. 

    I have create analysis with the name " Revenue by product type and department" . Please note that I have use a sample csv file to create this analysis.

    Please advise.

     

    Regards,

    Ashish

  • Did you manage to use Data Visualization Desktop? Create a data source (csv based or any other kind), create a project and define some visualizations there inside?

    If yes, then just do the same. OAC is like DVD, not really different.

    What does "but I'm unable to query this analysis on homepage to view the analysis" mean? You don't query an analysis, you just open it. If you saved it, find it and open it and you see what you saved.

  • Hi Gianni

    Appreciate your quick response. 

    There is search field on homepage of OAC, it is similiar to DVD. How can I leverage the same for analysis as I need to see the analysis on Day by Day app. I am able to open OAC instance on Day by Day App.

  • You keep mixing tools and jumping from one to another ...

    Day by Day search bar is to search attributes / measures (either the column names or the values).

    You don't display content you develop in OAC in Day by Day, you create new content on the fly by using the metadata (datamodel, sources) of OAC.

     

    So don't jump from a product to another randomly hoping they will just link everything together. Define what you are after and stick to it ...

  • Hi Gianni

    I agree with you. I was only concerned to know the use of search bar in the homepage of OAC also.

  • The content you create in OAC can be viewed with the OBI app on Android / iOS. It's not the same one as Day By Day

  • The search bar in OAC is supposed to search in the catalog, in the data sources and the metadata.

    So if you saved your content as "Revenue by product type and department" you can search for Revenue and hit "Enter" to run the search and you must get the results.

  • Hi Gianni

    I have saved my project and canvas with this name but not getting any results. Please advise where I am missing.

  • Maybe the crawler doing the indexing still didn't go through it? Not sure if it's realtime or there is some delay (not having an OAC running right now and in DVD I just have "old" content which is found without problems)

    But you can still open it from the list of the projects anyway.

  • Yes, we can do that. But I am exploring to search the analysis using search bar at homepage.

  • Yes, we can do that. But I am exploring to search the analysis using search bar at homepage.

  • When you click on the search bar and start writing something, do you see the info that you can query the catalog, sources and metadata?

    If yes, that's what the search bar can do. As said there is a crawler in the system, and no idea how quick or real-time it is ...

  • No nothing comes up when I start writing something. No worries, I can wait for sometime.

  • So that's maybe just DVD (as said I don't have an OAC instance available now).

    This is what I get in DVD ...
