An effort has been underway to incorporate data science and advanced analytics into Primavera Analytics. This effort started a few releases ago with sample analysis using the built in Oracle Business Intelligence advanced analytics functions including Trend line, Outliers, Cluster, and Regression. These samples can be found within the Primavera Analytics catalog on the More dashboard, under the Advanced Analytics page. But we wanted to continue moving forward with this effort and going beyond the out of the box functions. This has lead our effort to incorporate the use of Oracle R ( ) for even more advanced calculations.

In Primavera Analytics 19.1, we have started to show what is possible using R, and how to take the data you already have to the next advanced level of analysis. In 19.1, we have added 2 new sub-pages to the More dashboard called "Project Success (Adv A)" and "Resource (Adv A)".

If you have any questions, feel free to add them to the comments section below. Additionally, if there are specific advanced calculations that you think would be beneficial to include in our catalog, please leave those in the comment section as well or you can add them to the My Oracle Support Enhancement Request (, using the "Create an Idea" link...

In the next series of blog postings, I will detail what analysis have been released and some of the technical details...
