Leading provider of enterprise Reporting and Analytics software.
Amazon offers an array of data storage and analytics solutions such as Amazon Redshift and Amazon Athena that are becoming increasingly popular as businesses embrace digital transformation and migrate to the cloud. A fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service, AWS Redshift allows businesses to collect, store and analyze data for making informed decisions. AWS Athena is a serverless interactive query service enabling data analysis in Amazon S3 using standard SQL.
Built for the cloud, Amazon Redshift is fast and provides users with many benefits. For instance, Redshift’s Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) architecture enables quick loading of data and enables distributing and parallelizing of queries across multiple nodes. Its query engine that is based on ParAccel is similar to PostgreSQL, works with existing Postgres JDBC/ODBC drivers, and readily connects to a range of Business Intelligence (BI) tools including Orbit Reporting & Analytics.
With Amazon Athena, because it is serverless, it is easy to set and query data in its native format, wherever it is stored. Being based on the Presto SQL query engine, you can use it to query data in many formats such as JSON, CSV, log files, among others.
Limitations of Amazon’s own Reporting and Analytics Tools
Amazon provides a variety of reporting and analytics tools, and there are several third-party tools available in the market too. However, in our experience, businesses are looking for a single tool to manage multiple requirements. Most of the tools available are unable to meet this need, because of which customers end up buying several tools and customize on top of that.
This leads to inflated costs due to investing in multiple solutions as well as makes them cumbersome and difficult to maintain. The purpose of moving to the cloud is to break down organizational silos and provide a single source of truth. But when each function creates its own customized plug-ins, the purpose gets defeated and multiple versions of data start floating around. This reduces the effectiveness of using data to make decisions and makes it difficult to collaborate.
Seeking An Alternative: Why Orbit Offers an Ideal Self-Service Reporting Solutions for Amazon Redshift and Amazon Athena
A large satellite network company moved a part of its data to the cloud using Amazon Redshift and Athena. This was in addition to having Oracle ERP and Teradata for their organizational data storage and retrieval needs. They even had some third-party reporting and analytics tools, which they were using for specific BI needs.
In Spite of all this, it was a challenge to bring together data from disparate sources.
After evaluating many third-party tools, the company opted for Orbit’s Reporting and Analytics tool to unlock the full potential of cloud data stored on Amazon Redshift and Athena.

We chose Orbit Analytics as our enterprise-wide reporting platform for Oracle EBS applications over our licensed Oracle products (OBIEE, OAC, Endeca, etc.) due to low code skills requirement and ease of implementation. The in-built data visualization features, flexibility, and choice of reporting format & seamless integration with multiple databases made it the right choice for us. The data model and logical model get automatically refreshed for any change in the source database, hence reducing the ETL skills requirements substantially and the project timeline. Hope the partnership between Orbit and Hindalco grows with time to make Orbit our enterprise-wide BI platform beyond and in addition to Oracle EBS applications.
