Advanced Analytics Training for Oracle Partners - March 1st 2012 in UK

Hands-on Training for Oracle Data-Mining and Oracle R-Enterprise

Where is the knowledge that is lost in information?

Where is the wisdom that is lost in knowledge? - T.S.Eliot

2-day Workshop - March 1st 2012 : Oracle London, UK

Workshop Description

“Big data”, without deep analytics, is just “data”. Data doesn’t become useful, actionable information until data analysis and interpretation are performed. Advanced Analytics is needed to extract meaning from data, creating valuable information that helps companies and organizations to:

  • Better understand customers, their behaviour and their needs

  • Perform a wide range of basic and statistical analyses

  • Build predictive models

  • Detect anomalies, potential fraud and rare events

  • Develop greater insight and understanding

Oracle's Advanced Analytics tools transform the Oracle Database into a powerful data mining, predictive analytics, statistics and advanced analytics platform. The Oracle Advanced Analytics Option, which bundles both Oracle Data Mining and Oracle R Enterprise together, enables companies to bring the algorithms to the data as compared to the traditional approach of extracting data to specialized and expensive dedicated statistical/data mining servers.

With the Oracle Advanced Analytics Option, data movement is eliminated, or dramatically reduced, while analytical and compute intensive operations are performed within the database where the data resides; significantly improving performance and reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of analytics.

The Oracle Advanced Analytics Option integrates a comprehensive array of predictive analytics, data mining, text mining, basic and advanced statistical functions and analytics into the database.

  1. Oracle Data Mining provides powerful machine learning techniques that run as SQL functions for in-database data preparation, model build and model deployment.

  2. Oracle R Enterprise integrates the popular R statistical programming environment with the Database to further extend the Database’s analytical capabilities. Oracle R Enterprise can be used to address an extensive variety of data driven problems.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

This 2-day Hands on Training for Oracle Data Mining (ODM) and Oracle R Enterprise (ORE) is designed for Oracle Partners’ Consultants to gain an overview of ODM, ODM value proposition(s), competitive advantages and differentiators, and example customer use cases, as well as some proficiency in using these software tools.

During this training course, you will learn:

  • Data Mining, Predictive Analytics and Advanced Analytics Overview

  • How to use the SQL Developer/Oracle Data Miner GUI to mine demo data

  • Ideas for integration of ODM results into OBIEE dashboards and Applications

  • Basic concepts and most common Oracle R Enterprise command, functionality and demo scripts

  • We will also introduce you to Oracle RTD (Real Time Decisions) to position this compared to ODM and ORE.

Training Goals:

  • Students should understand the basics of Oracle Data Mining and will be able to use the Oracle Data Miner GUI

  • Students should become familiar with Oracle R Enterprise and do simple "Hello world" examples

  • Students will understand resources to self-study and learn more after this course.

PREPARATION & PREREQUISITES:

Students must come to the class with their own laptops with the following:

  • Oracle Database 11g Release 11.2.0.1+, including Sample Examples data installed
  • SQL Developer 3.1 with Oracle Data Mining Extension installed - download 3.1 EA3
  • Oracle R Enterprise installed + open source R

Additional pointers to pre-course resources and study aides will be available before the class. For more info goto ODM on OTN And ODM Examples E-Tutorials.
