Oracle Day by Day App

Oracle have released the new Day by Day app for both iOS and Android and it's rather good.  There's a great 6min video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8q4foZyYQJc which I highly recommend watching, but I thought I'd share my first experiment with it.

I connected to my demo Oracle Analytic Cloud instance to use the good old Sample App test data.  I then used the microphone to dictate into the app "Revenue in Americas for game station".  Yes - that's right - I just dictated - asked a fact ( the Revenue ) for a dimension value ( Americas which is in Regions ) for a specific Product (  Game Station ).

If you see how that was interpreted, it replayed "America's" and "four" based on my diction and .... went and got exactly the right results!

I doubled checked this figure by actually going and querying it back using the traditional clicking about in the screens. 

I then thought that what would be interesting would be to ask Day by Day the same question but also extend it out to say "by Year" and see how it handles that.  Rather well it would appear.  It initially gave me a line graph that I was then easily able to toggle to a bar chart like this :

Pretty cool.  I thought that I'd tell it that, so I pressed the "comment" button and commented on that

I can then also share that with my "Crew" - or colleagues - as there's quite a bit of social engagement about it.

There's a lot to like about this - not just the fact I can ask it questions and get instant answers, but also that it can do location specific stuff and give me a feed of things I'm actually interested in and also share that information with colleagues.  I suggest that you do watch the video and if you need OAC/Day by Day setting up then please ask us!

Mark's first experience of Oracle was back in the 80's building applications using very early versions of Oracle Forms at Staffordshire University. Upon graduating in 1990 with a First Class B.Sc.(Hons) in Information Systems, he joined Oracle UK's consultancy team working on some of the first Oracle Applications implementations across the UK, eventually working for Oracle Local Government. Over the subsequent years to 2006 he worked in a mainly technical/functional capacity across sectors such as Corporate Banking, Utilities and Public Sector, solely on projects underpinned by Oracle technology. In 2006 he became a founding Director of Beyond Systems where he has honed the focus of the company to be one of enabling public sector customers to achieve excellence with Oracle Business Intelligence, especially Oracle BI Applications sourced from Oracle E-Business. Mark has presented at many joint Oracle/Beyond events as well as contributing his perspectives on the technical/strategic business usages of Oracle to various magazines, the first appearing in ODTUG back in 1995. Outside of business, Mark is a keen musician and plays lead guitar in a covers band and also enjoys sports, especially skiing and golf.
