Using R on your Oracle Data Warehouse
By Jean-Pierre Dijcks on Mar 15, 2011
Since it is Predictive Analytics World in our backyard (or are we San Francisco's backyard...?) I figured it is well worth the time to dust of some old but important news.
With big data (should we start calling it "any data analytics" instead?) being the buzz word and analytics the key operative goal, not moving data around is becoming more and more critical to the business users. Why? Because instead of spending time on moving data around into your next analytics server you should be running analytics on those CPUs.
As Casimir Saternos concludes in the article; "There is a growing awareness of the need to effectively analyze astronomical amounts of data, much of which is stored in Oracle databases. Statistics and modeling techniques are used to improve a wide variety of business functions. ODM accessed using the R language increases the value of your data by uncovering additional information. RODM is a powerful tool to enable your organization to make predictions, classify data, and create visualizations that maximize effectiveness and efficiencies."
