In today’s technological landscape there’s an ever-accelerating demand for increased efficiency and effectiveness.As organizations evaluate new solutions, they must consider the effective end-user adoption of every technology prior to implementation, particularly as the cost of deployment and training are often driven by the rate of user adoption.

So every organization requires a careful evaluation of the tool, as well as its potential for end-user adoption. To enable all users to tap into the most pertinent data, whenever and wherever they need it, Oracle has introduced, Oracle BI Cloud Service.The new Oracle BI CS is familiar with the users of OBIEE 11g. In some areas, Oracle BICS provides nearly identical features and functionality to Oracle BI EE. These similarities enable users to become more productive more quickly using Oracle BI Cloud Service.

That said, you don’t need any special skills/training, just your current OBIEE analyzing and visualizing hands on skills are enough to adopt this new BICS. What’s new? Oracle BICS is designed with a fresh, lighter weight UI by integrating a new style called Skyros. It is exciting to see how quickly oracle is enhancing BI capabilities and visualizations components that provide significant graphical and tabular capabilities for analyzing data. In that direction, Oracle BI CS is being modernized and introduced following new features/components (in this V1 release).

Treemap view Treemaps organize hierarchical data by grouping the data into rectangles (known as tiles). Treemaps display tiles based on the size of one measure and the color of the second measure. The following figure shows an example of simple treemap view. It shows the rectangles space filled with the “Size” and “Color” proportional to the “#Leads” across different Lead Sources.
