OTBI RPD Changes

Dinesh TAug 26 2022 — edited Aug 27 2022

My scenario:
I've worked extensively with OBIEE, and I'm familiar with setting up the RPD in OBIEE. My company now requires me to setup OTBI.

My question:
Is OTBI RPD based or non-RPD based?

Below is my journey to finding the answer:
https://community.oracle.com/tech/apps-infra/discussion/4272815/modifying-the-cloud-based-otbi-metadata-rpd
From the above link, it's clear that the OTBI in cloud is RPD-based and the customer cannot modify the metadata as it's handled by Oracle itself.

The word 'cloud' in the above post got me researching if an On-premise version of OTBI is available, and if RPD is manageable by the customer. And I found the below resource:
https://blogs.perficient.com/2016/04/14/oracle-transactional-bi-otbi-vs-otbie/
But this post was written in 2014. So I was wondering if things changed by now, and continued my search to find the answer.

My subsequent searches brought me to the below Oracle blog post:
https://blogs.oracle.com/analytics/post/how-otbi-and-faw-complement-each-other
This post conveys that OTBI is available with certain Oracle Cloud Applications (which means there's only a cloud version).

My Conclusion (Please validate)
Based on all the resources I referred to, my understanding is OTBI is available only with certain Oracle Cloud applications (and there's no On-premise version), and it's RPD-based. However, the RPD is managed by Oracle and the customers cannot modify the metadata.
Please let me know if my understanding is correct. If not, please correct me.

ps: Sorry for the lengthy post, as I didn't want to ask a blunt question without sharing my efforts to find the answer.
Thanks
