Read on to learn more about Oracle FAW and how our senior-level Oracle consultants can help your organization maximize your existing technological investment.

What is Oracle FAW?

Oracle Fusion Analytics Warehouse is a group of packaged, cloud-native solutions for Oracle HCM, ERP, SCM, and CX SaaS applications. These applications provide line-of-business users with readily available insights to improve overall decision-making. 

Oracle FAW  was created with the Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) and is driven by Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, enabling users to reduce data silos and maintain a consistent view of business performance.

Data analysts and individuals in related professions can gain insights into enterprise performance to improve decision-making and drive more profitable outcomes in the future. For example, organizations can analyze data from both Finance and HR departments to assess the impact of employee performance and productivity on overall profitability.

Fusion Analytics Apps deliver role-based dashboards to view and analyze core business operations. Oracle Fusion Analytics Warehouse also minimizes cross-team analysis complexity by maintaining a standard data model and various subject areas that cover critical business processes.

Availability for Oracle Fusion Analytics Warehouse is based on Oracle services like:

  • Oracle Analytics Cloud
  • Oracle Identity Cloud Service
  • Oracle Cloud IaaS services like computing and storage
  • Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse

Oracle Fusion Analytics Warehouse empowers clients with industry-leading, AI-powered self-service analytics capabilities for data preparation, visualization, enterprise reporting, natural language processing, augmented analysis, and more.

The Oracle Fusion Analytics Warehouse utilizes an effective cache management strategy to enhance performance. It’s crucial to set up the semantic model only using the built-in tools provided by Oracle Fusion Analytics Warehouse and deploy it solely on the service instance of Oracle Fusion Analytics Warehouse. Users should avoid configuring the semantic model using external tools such as Oracle Analytics Client Tools, Oracle Analytics Administration Tool, or APIs.
