Is Oracle Intelligent Advisor a good fit for a business (case)?

The team at Oracle Intelligent Advisor have been really excelling themselves recently – there have been a series of Product Strategy meetings, Show and Tell with Phil Whitwell and Fiona Guy running their various meetups. And just a few weeks ago, the latest session for Customer Connect was recorded, to address a common question “Is Oracle Intelligent Advisor a good fit for a business (case)?”, and some of you will have seen this PDF file.

I would go so far as to say that this video was the most useful and important produced so far. It is entitled “Is Oracle Intelligent Advisor a good fit for my business (case)” so you can imagine that it touches on several really important topics – the product, it’s strengths, customer successes, how to look for business cases that play to the product strengths and more.

We’ve often spoken about this topic in various forms, most recently looking at ways to accelerate your adoption of Oracle Intelligent Advisor in Infographic form. Deciding which business case or scenario to focus on and staying laser focused is of course a super-important prerequisite to many of the points we made.

I think it is fair to say that like many unique software products, people in general sometimes struggle to explain Oracle Intelligent Advisor’s role in business cases, and sometimes it can result in a poor choice of scenario for a project. I’m not criticising anything or anyone, since there are a multitude of reasons why Oracle Intelligent Advisor might be a good fit and some of them have nothing to do with the product (availability of resources, budget, timing, political reasons and so on).
