Oracle's Crystal Ball®
Since 1986, Oracle's Crystal Ball (formerly Decisioneering, Inc.) has been providing decision analysis software
and solutions that empower individuals and organizations to make better decisions. Since then, Crystal Ball has
continued to change the way that analysts, engineers, managers and other professionals make critical business
decisions. With its innovative charts, reports and simulation technology, Crystal Ball helps all levels of
spreadsheet modelers calculate and clearly communicate the certainty of a desired outcome. Major industries that
have adopted Crystal Ball include oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, financial services, telecommunications, manufacturing,
aerospace, transportation, and chemicals for such diverse applications as Six Sigma, reserve analysis, financial
valuation, environmental and waste assessment, market evaluation, portfolio planning and sales forecasting.
Crystal Ball is a Microsoft® Excel®-based suite of analytical tools that includes Monte Carlo simulation,
optimization, capability metrics, and forecasting. The most popular use of Crystal Ball is to define variable inputs
as probability distributions and use simulation to view the effects of this variation on one or more outputs. With
little effort, you can apply these advanced analytical techniques to your new or existing spreadsheets to help
understand and reduce the effects of variation on new or existing designs and processes.
