Unless you have been going around with your head in the clouds, all you can hear from all the big names in the IT worlds is about moving to the Cloud. (yes that was a poor attempt at a joke. It is Friday afternoon after all).
The title of this post is 'From Zero to Dashboards in 5 min with BICS'.
BICS stands for Oracle BI Cloud Service.
Over the past few months I've been working rolling out BICS at a number of different sites, and it is surprising how quickly you can get up and running with BICS.
There is no install. There is the minimum of setup and configuration. All you need to do is to create a user and give them some privileges. All of that takes 2 minutes.
Next get them to log in to BICS (2 minutes for the first time they log in) and load up some data using the Data Load feature (another 2 minutes).
Then you can move onto the fun part of creating some Dashboards using Visual Analyzer. See the example below of one that we created in 4 minutes.
So all of the above took 10 minutes. How quick and easy is that!
Give it a go yourself and see how quick it is for you.
Let me know if you have any question on using BICS and if you need any help.
