Why migrate from OBI to OAC/OAS

Logo LP Oracle Cloud

Previously, in our blog Oracle Analytics, one solution to rule them all, we discussed the changes made by Oracle around its analytics solutions proposal, and how it has carried out a consolidation of the portfolio to have a single line, Oracle Cloud ANALYTICS, which includes several options:

On Premise: Oracle Analytics Server

OACS onpremise

Cloud: Oracle Analytics Cloud Service

OACS Cloud

SaaS: Oracle Fusion Analytics

For those OBI Enterprise Edition 11g environments, did you know that support and bug fixes ended in December 2018 and extended support ended in December 2021? Additionally, Java 1.6 and 1.7, which usually coexist with OBI 11g, are also out of support.

For those OBI12c environments, only support for the latest version ( is still alive, so most of them, unfortunately, will not be able to enjoy support and bug fixes, with the consequent risk.


On an economic level, customers with an active OBI support contract can migrate to OAC/OAS without incurring additional licensing costs, as long as the metrics are aligned with Oracle's licensing rules.


In terms of functionalities, starting from those offered by the current OBI environment, we will evaluate what each "flavor" brings to the table compared to the previous one.

In this case, we want to focus more on the reasons to migrate from OBI (Oracle Business Intelligence) to Oracle Analytics.

What do we offer?

How about showing you some examples where a business person, with no knowledge of analytics or Machine Learning algorithms, can draw conclusions and make predictions about their data?

For example, we can teach you how to understand the reasons why an employee leaves the company, the probability of a heart attack, or the prediction of the demand for bike rentals by applying predictive numerical models.

What does OAS (the on-premise version) to OBIEE?

In general terms, we will keep our Dashboards, Answers, Publisher, etc. applications, but what is most interesting are the new functionalities it brings: self-service analytics, DataFlows, Data Replication, Augmented Analytics, etc. If we go into more detail, we will see that OAS adds the following:

  • Self Service Analytics

  • Data Preparation

  • Data Visualization

  • Storytelling

  • Sharing and Collaboration

  • Mobile Exploration (except Day by Day, only in OAC)

  • Augmented Analytics

  • Natural language queries and speech support

  • Data Enrichment

  • "One click Explain"

  • Machine Learning for predictive analytics

  • Data Connectors

What does OACS (the cloud version) bring to OAS (the on-premise version)?

  • Mobile Exploration through the Oracle day by Day mobile app.
  • Data Replication: Replicate data from different sources (Oracle SaaS, Amazon EMR, Amazon Redshift, Apache Hive, CSV files, DB2, Dropbox, Google Drive, Hortonworks Hive, Impala, MapR Hive, Informix, Excel, SQL, MongoDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Salesforce, Snowflake, Spark, Sybase, Teradata) avoiding using queries or manual data extractions from these sources.
  • Natural Language Generation

As can be seen, many new functionalities bring great value to data analysis, especially considering that thanks to natural language processing or self-service analytics, we make it easy for business profiles to process data on their own, without having to rely on a team to prepare data or dashboards if it is not necessary.
