It's A New Year - Take Advantage of What MySQL Has To Offer

Written by Diana Gray, Senior Principal Curriculum Product Manager

If you've been thinking about migrating to the cloud in this year, here's another area Oracle has worked to simplify – making it even easier to get up to speed!

Now is the time to develop the skills you need.

MySQL: Simplified Management Capability

Oracle is helping customers simplify management of complex IT environments by extending Oracle Enterprise Manager capabilities to MySQL databases.

With this new offering, customers can manage complex deployments of Oracle technologies that include MySQL, either on-premises or in a cloud.

Existing users of Oracle Enterprise Manager can now easily add MySQL to their environments and gain the skills they need by taking Oracle training courses.

MySQL: A Natural Choice for the Cloud

MySQL is the world’s most popular open source database.

With its proven ease-of-use, performance, reliability and scalability, MySQL has become the leading database choice for Web-based applications, used by high profile web properties including:

  • Google
  • Yahoo!
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • YouTube
  • Wikipedia

This list also includes thousands of mid-sized companies.

MySQL’s leadership for web-based applications created the foundation for MySQL to become ubiquitous in the cloud. The vast majority of cloud computing providers either offer MySQL-based services or deliver offerings integrating with MySQL.

Interact with Oracle Database Data Using the R Language in a Safe Environment

Written by Brian Pottle, Senior Principal Curriculum Developer, Oracle Curriculum Development Team

OracleEnterprise Essentials Training Now Available

Oracle has adopted R as a language and environment to support statisticians, data analysts and data scientists in performing statistical data analysis and advanced analytics, as well as generating sophisticated graphics.

Oracle R Enterprise (ORE) is a component of the Oracle Database Analytics Option. ORE makes the open source R statistical programming language and environment ready for the enterprise and big data.

Designed for problems involving large amounts of data - Oracle R Enterprise integrates R with Oracle Database

  • Using ORE, R users can run R commands and scripts for statistical and graphical analyses on data stored in Oracle Database or outside the database.
  • In both cases, users can leverage the power and scalability of Oracle Database to overcome the memory constraints of the base R environment.
  • R users can develop, refine and deploy R scripts that leverage parallelism in the database to automate and vastly improve performance of the analytic process.

Because it runs as an embedded component of Oracle Database, ORE can run any R package, either by function pushdown or via embedded R scripts, while the database automatically manages the spawned R engines that process the data.

Oracle R Enterprise Essentials Training will teach you how to access the power of Oracle Database for enhanced R programming and analysis for big data opportunities.

What You Will Learn

Expert Oracle University instructors will guide you through the process of adding the power of ORE to your existing R technical portfolio. As you will learn, ORE transparently leverages the massive scalability of the database for the big data analysis problems.

In this course, you learn how to interact with database data using the R language and R data using ORE functions. In addition, you will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to use Oracle Database for predictive analysis.

Finally, you'll learn how to leverage the database server machine for executing R scripts from SQL and R, both individually and in a data-parallel and task-parallel manner.

Instructor Insight: Dealing with Columns in Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Release 9.1

Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Release  9.1 has many new features that will help end users be more efficient in their daily jobs. For example, hiding grid columns is now as easy as a left-mouse click. In earlier releases, users could click on the ‘Customize Grid’ link but still had to do several more clicks to hide or show a column . The following example shows how easy this new feature is to use.

First, right-mouse click on the column you want to hide; for example the ‘Long Address’ column.


The column is now hidden.


Second, right-mouse over on any of the columns to show the ‘Unhide’ option.


After you select ‘Unhide’, the hidden column is shown. You can then select the column to show, or unhide, the column.


This new feature and others are covered in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne System Administration Rel 9.x course, which has been updated to reflect the new release. Hope to see you in class!
