Preparing Complex Data For Use
Even in the most well designed big data projects, a larger portion of the effort and cost is spent in preparing complex data ready for analysis. Big Data Preparation Cloud Service (BDPCS) flips that equation. Minimizing the data preparation time helps unlock the value of complex data quickly. However, data preparation is not just a series of sorting, prepping and standardization operations. When done right, it is a crucial step to enrich data. To unearth insights and prepare a data enrichment pipeline that can then be operationalized to deliver higher quality and vastly insightful data to downstream applications.
Oracle Big Data Preparation Cloud Service is part of the comprehensive Cloud Platform for Big Data that Oracle announced during Open World.
Built for Analysts, Data Scientists and Data Experts
BDPCS utilizes a non technical, web based interface to guide the data preparation effort. This is keeping in view that data preparation should not be dependent on technical skills but business expertise. This brings data science closer to the business experts, data analysts and data scientists. Natural Language Processing based algorithms surfaces recommendations that can be then applied as business and enrichment rules to the data set. These recommendations are presented as "plain english" texts that can then be modified and updated.
Build on Apache Spark, Big Data Preparation Cloud Service also includes a responsive visual element that profiles the data sets for even further analysis and standardizations. Using Big Data Preparation Cloud Service, experts can now pull data, mash them up, enrich the data and publish it quickly. This allows them to iterate through many analysis that generally take weeks or sometime months to co ordinate with the IT and technology teams.
Data preparation and data wrangling is attracting a lot of investment as Data Science enters the next stage of refinement. Big Data Preparation Cloud Service brings certain critical elements that puts it ahead of its competition.
It brings recommendation driven user experience
It utilizes Natural Language Processing classifications and enrichment, and
It has extensive automation capabilities.
