Oracle BI is Complete, offering the widest choice of end user access ranging from interactive dashboards, ad hoc query, pixel-perfect reporting and Office integration, but also proactive alerting and mobile access, collaboration Scorecards, and embedded in business applications. This broad set of choices helps foster delivery of BI insights pervasively across organizations.
Oracle BI is based on industry standards and is open to work with the IT infrastructure you have today or what you might select in the future. This includes your choice of operating systems, security infrastructure, browsers, and servers.Almost every customer has a variety of business relevant data sources, so Oracle BI is open to all types, including relational, multidimensional, semi-structured and unstructured sources……from Oracle and non-Oracle, in any combinations.
Although based on best-of-breed components, Oracle BI is architected to use common metadata, common security model, common data access, common infrastructure, and common systems management. This enables businesses to leverage additional BI capabilities with minimum complexity and cost.In addition, Oracle BI 11g offers strong integration with Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Enterprise Performance Management applications, and Oracle business applications, providing Oracle customers with addition power and cost advantages.
More specific examples are business assets, like the bus stops for the TFL which are outdoor, but examples are also of indoor assets like the portable cardio machines that used in hospitals. Spatial can be more than a location of a simple object, it can also be an area like a construction site or shop floor. People have spatial information associated with them. Their current physical location (GPS) or their home address. Also they can have spatial information associated with an event like an accident or the purchasing of petrol. Even indoor activities, like people playing on slot machines or how airport security lines perform and need to be rearranged to be more efficient.Casinos for example (top screenshot is casino floor and slot machines) might plot their floor with the slot machines and they can plot the busier machines in relation to foot traffic and hence plan their placement accordingly by placing more popular (and hence money making) slots nearer areas with high foot traffic. This example works equally well for the placement of merchandise on a shop floor – ie, retailers may place slower selling items (they want to get rid of) or higher revenue generating faster moving items in high foot traffic areas.Movida (bottom screenshot) is plotting the floor space of a hospital theatres and rooms and they use this to make sure that all required assets for a particular medical procedure or particular patient is present.In-field personnel = mobile engineers, truck drivers, sales people etc.
In the past people were afraid of maps due to their complexity. Cartography was (and still is) a highly skilled subject area. Many traditional maps are difficult to understand without explanation.Example here is the couple fighting on holiday because they cannot read the map.
In private life we use mapping everyday now. We use rain radars and satellite cloud images to predict weather. Traffic is plotted realtime, navigation and routing for vehicle travel, and location based searching when looking for the nearest ATM, gas station or coffee shop. It comes through on our TVs, mobile phones, Garmin/TomTom and computers.The 3 screenshots are;Left live traffic report of Hannover GermanyBottom the routing by car from the Oracle London city office to the Oracle Reading office UKRight The hybrid map of Barcelona showing tourist attractions, shops and restaurants near La Rambla.Center Garmin nuvi with NAVTEQ maps/routingIts simple and easy. Almost anyone can use the services available today and compared to the ‘old paper’ maps there are far less arguments on holidays!
We use spatial in business already. Everywhere here in the dashboard.
Apart from the myriad challenges that are faced by business analysts when analyzing data, one of the biggest is deciding how best to visualize the data. Too high level a view and it becomes more or less meaningless; too detailed a view and any insights are buried under massive amounts of data. Visualizations, in order to provide insights, need to be effective, interactive, and bite-sized. That is, first show an overview so users can quickly grasp the salient information and then decide where to drill in for further detail.
Let’s take a specific example. This is an example where maps rendered by Oracle Fusion Middleware MapViewer (FMWMapViewer or Oracle MapViewer) have been integrated into an Oracle BI EE 10g Dashboard page. The user can select a feature of interest, like a park, and then choose to highlight all incidents that occurred within 750 feet of the selected park. These incidents are also displayed in a standard table view on the right side of the page.Oracle MapViewerrenders maps using spatial data managed by Oracle Spatial. It provides services and tools that hide the complexity of spatial data queries and cartographic rendering, while providing customizable options for more advanced users. It is designed to integrate with FMW tools, services and applications. Data selection based on spatial criteria. Here we have both a map with data points and a more traditional table of data. We can use the map to make selections like ‘show all incidents within 500m of the park’. This is not easily done on a table of data. Likewise we can make a selection from the table and then have those points plotted onto the map.
The map on the left shows areas where there is a higher density of bars as compared to grocery stores. Areas in red have more bars per 10,000 people in that unit area while areas in brown have more grocery stores per 10,000 people. The map on the right shows incidents of cholera and locations of public wells. John Snow used it to depict and detect the correlation between a contaminated well and cholera cases. Cholera cases in households that did not use the contaminated well were subsequently explained by verifying that the affected persons had visited households who did use the contaminated well. So,200 years ago people were already doing BI & spatial. It was the only way to effectively understand the information (ie on a map) and then ‘see’ where the worst hit cholera areas were.Each of these areas, or locations, of interest can be linked to more detailed reports, charts, graphs or other BI content and visualizations.
This slide tries to explain with business examples how some questions inherently have a spatial element and are difficult to answer without location. In red the spatial element of the question is highlighted. Using traditional BI forms (pie charts, bar graphs and tables etc) it is difficult to effectively show the location elements. A column of addresses in a table of results does not effectively convey the answer to the question. Users would have a tough time translating the table of data into something they can make decisions from.Healthcare has been used as the example theme, however, this could be modified for other themes like police and crime or retail and store locations etc.Including time and movement of spatial information allows forecasting and prediction. This is highlighted in the last question. Flu is passed person to person very directly. This means over time, it is possible to see the movement of disease and predict where is best to distribute vaccines. This is common practice for a national outbreak of any kind.
“Spatial business intelligence” is “location intelligence”. Here we describe what is a traditional BI system. A system that provides information in a form that enables decision making. It provides facts with context. The context being, WHO, WHAT and WHEN. Location intelligence is all about extending the traditional BI with WHERE. You can do some location type reporting with traditional BI, ie including where, however, as the presentation moves forward it will illustrate how much more efficient and intuitive it is by incorporating the spatial components.
So, simply, BI provides the WHO, WHAT and WHEN. Spatial provides the WHERE to complete the story.WHO, WHAT, WHEN + WHERE (location intelligence) = ability to graphically see relationships in the data, clusters and trends. Patterns that would otherwise go unnoticed with traditional BI alone. Normal users without training can quickly detect these trends and patterns when a spatial context is provided on the data.
Components of a location intelligence system. This describes the generic components required, then maps the Oracle/NAVTEQ offerings over those.A database – obviously to store all the data. WHAT, WHO, WHENA GIS – this provides the geo-coded data. WHERE. Location data from the DB (eg postcodes) is ‘geo-coded’ by the spatial componentsBI – is the mechanism that assimilates the data into information and also provides a delivery system of that information (eg dashboards, reports, web, mobile etc). BI provides a process to add context and aggregate loads of data into concise and understandable information to support decisions.The combination of the GIS, DB and the BI system provides “location intelligence”. Location intelligence is not a system on its own, but a capability provided through the synergy of the other 3.Oracle/NAVTEQ products plotted in red. Explain that Oracle DB is spatially aware with the Spatial option is effectively a GIS
