7:30PM - 8:30PM Oracle Advanced Analytics - Extending Oracle Database into an Advanced Analytics Platform
By Jorge Velasquez, Principal Consultant, Oracle

Oracle Advanced Analytics extends the Oracle Database into a comprehensive advanced analytics platform through two major components: Oracle R Enterprise and Oracle Data Mining. With Oracle Advanced Analytics, customers have a comprehensive platform for real-time analytics that delivers insight into key business subjects such as churn prediction, product recommendations, and fraud alerting.

Oracle R Enterprise extends the database with the R programming language’s library of statistical functionality, and pushes down computations to the database. Oracle R Enterprise users can use their existing Oracle R Enterprise development skills and tools, and scripts can now also run transparently and scale against data stored in Oracle Database.

Oracle Data Mining provides powerful data mining algorithms that run as native SQL functions for in-database model building and model deployment. Users of the Oracle Data Mining feature can build, evaluate, share, and deploy predictive analytics methodologies while also making high-performance, Oracle-specific data mining algorithms accessible to Oracle R Enterprise.
