OATUG Sponsored Webinar - REPORTING VS. ANALYTICS: What’s the Difference and Which Tool is Right for Which Job?

Users in every organization rely on Reporting and BI tools for actionable insights from their Oracle ERP applications. However, many organizations struggle to understand the difference and the use cases for each. They continue to try and use BI Analytics tools to answer Reporting Tool questions that demand real-time answers, sometimes even replacing the end-of-life reporting solutions with existing BI Analytics tools. In the process, they spend countless dollars and IT resources to write reports without realizing that most reporting tools allow users to create their own reports. The prevailing best practice is to free up IT to focus on data governance, reporting standards rather than owning all aspects of reporting, including gathering of business requirements, and report creation and modification. Join this webinar to learn strategies that have helped other Oracle customers from around the world to adopt a self-service, real-time reporting tool that works out of the box.
