Welcome to Oracle Data Mining!
By Charlie Berger, Advanced Analytics-Oracle on Jan 07, 2010
The Oracle Database can now not only store and manage data, but now it can "think" about that data, find patterns and relationships and make
predictions. Oracle has been "stem-celling" advanced analytics inside the SQL
kernel for the past 10 years employing a strategy of "moving algorithms to the
data" versus. "moving data to the algorithms". This eliminates data movement, preserves security, leverages the power and scalability of the Oracle Database and Exadata and enables applications that utilize "predictive analytics".
Oracle Data Mining 11g Release 2 now has 12 in-database data mining functions (SQL &/or Java APIs for model building and model scoring), a free optional Oracle Data Miner GUI (classic), a new Oracle Data Miner 11gR2 NEW work flow GUI that was unveiled at OOW '09, and we've recently announced several Oracle predictive analytics Applications "Powered by Oracle Data Mining"
This ODM blog that will be maintained by Oracle Data Mining Technologies Development and Product Management will be dedicated to sharing "best practices", tips and tricks for applying Oracle Data Mining, information about new features and capabilities and information of general interest to the Oracle Data Warehousing, Business Intelligence and Analytics community.
