Check out this new white paper entitled "Bringing R to the Enterprise - A Familiar R Environment with Enterprise-Caliber Performance, Scalability, and Security."
In this white paper, we begin with "Beyond the Laptop" exploring the ability to run R code in the database, working with CRAN packages at the database server, operationalizing R analytics, and leveraging Hadoop from the comfort of the R language and environment.
Excerpt: "Oracle Advanced Analytics and Oracle R Connector for Hadoop combine the advantages of R with the power and scalability of Oracle Database and Hadoop. R programs and libraries can be used in conjunction with these database assets to process large amounts of data in a secure environment. Customers can build statistical models and execute them against local data stores as well as run R commands and scripts against data stored in a secure corporate database."
The white paper continues with three use cases involving Oracle Database and Hadoop: analyzing credit risk, detecting fraud, and preventing customer churn. The conclusion: providing analytics for the enterprise based on the R environment is here!
