        Oracle is Exemplary in Analytics and Data Buyers Guide

        We are happy to share some insights about Oracle drawn from our latest market research, Ventana Research Buyers Guide: Analytics and Data, which assesses how well vendors’ offerings meet buyers’ requirements.

        We recently published five Ventana Research 2023 Analytics and Data Buyers Guides, an assessment of technology vendors and products that provide individual and combined VR_BG_AD_Exemplaryanalytics and data, augmented analytics, collaborative analytics, embedded analytics and mobile analytics and platform support.

        At Ventana Research, we continue to believe that, for most use-cases, there is a clear choice for analytics and data platforms for any use in your organization. We developed five technology assessments and buyers guides to focus on overall analytics and data requirements as well as specific augmented analytics, collaborative analytics, mobile analytics and embedded analytics use-cases.

        In all of our Buyers Guides, we utilize a structured research methodology called the Value Index that includes evaluation categories designed to reflect real-world criteria incorporated in a request for proposal (RFP) and vendor selection process for analytics and data. We evaluated Oracle and 21 other vendors in seven categories, five relevant to the product (adaptability, capability, manageability, reliability and usability) and two related to the vendor (TCO/ROI and vendor validation). To arrive at the Value Index rating for a given vendor, we weighted each category to reflect its relative importance in an RFP process, with the weightings based on our experience and on data derived from our benchmark research on analytics and data.

        In the overall Analytics and Data Buyers Guide, our analysis classified Oracle as Exemplary, ranking third in the overall research at 73.4%. Oracle’s best performance came in Customer Experience at 84.4%, ranking first, due Ventana_Research_BG_AD_Oracle_2023in part to its first-place ranking in Validation. In Product Experience, Oracle placed third at 71.4% due to its performance in Reliability.

Customer Experience was nominally impacted by its 84.1% performance in TCO/ROI, where it could provide improvements to the information needed to make a business case.

        Oracle performed best in Customer Experience, notably in Validation, where its 84.6% performance was due to the amount of available information about customer experience and case studies. In addition, Oracle’s performance and scalability led to its 79.7% performance in Reliability. In Capability, Oracle performed well in mobile and NLP.
