Recommendations to others considering the product
- The Oracle company is massively investing into the Cloud and Autonomous products. Oracle Autonomous Analytics Cloud is the way to go in combination with Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse.
- The Oracle Analytics Cloud is an enterprise solution and can't be compared with a Data Visualization tool like Power BI or Tableau. This is not the same use at all.
