Workarounds for using Direct Query with Oracle 11g

I know that Direct Query can only be used with Oracle version 12 and above but I'm stuck with 11g. So, I'm trying to think of workarounds for this.

One method I can think is to upload the data to an intermediary supported database (like Azure) and then use Direct Query from there.

Another method is to to use linked servers from SQL Server though I'm sure whether this will work or not,

 

Any comments on the above approaches or are there any better workarounds?

@curious,

The above workarounds you mentioned are executable. You can upload Oracle data to Azure SQL database or on-premise SQL Server , then use DirectQuery in Power BI Desktop to connect to the SQL data source.

Moreover, if you want to use linked server, you can follow the guide in this similar thread to connect to the data source.
