With the release of the Oracle Database 22.214.171.124 there was a number of new features and options. Most of the publicity has been around the in-Memory option. But there was lots of other features for the DBA and a few for the developer.
One of the new SQL functions is the APPROX_COUNT_DISTINCT(). This function is different to the tradition count distinct, COUNT(DISTINCT expression), in that is performs an approximate count distinct. (more...)
When Oracle Data Miner (ODMr) 4.0 (which is part of SQL Developer) came out back in late 2013 there was a number of new features added to the tool. One of these was a Graph node that allows us to create various graphs and charts that include Line, Scatter, Bar, Histogram and Box plot.

The stack bar gives a total view of the killings and how it has grown over the years

Before we had the 12c Database if we only wanted to see a subset or the initial set of records from the results of a query we (more...)
GitHub maintains a list of all DMCA takedown notices along with counteractions and retractions if any.
Analysing all the notices from 2011, it seems that the takedown notices are on the rise.
Year View : Notice the sharp increase in 2014
Quarterly view : Now looking at the quarterly breakup, seems like the takedowns are cooling off in the later quarters.
So who is issuing these DMCA takedowns?
Let us move on from Grass Eating Sauropods and talk about who’s who in the analytic space.
For every dime there are dozen analytic companies. Everybody who provides a freaking dashboard is an analytic company. Anybody that merely mentions Google, Facebook, Hadoop etc in the same sentence is somehow into BigData. Haven’t you stumbled across company pages where they claim to be expert in analytics and big data but they want you to schedule a (more...)
First we asked what is the top most program (duh!!) but by how much and who are next in the list and so on.

Digging into the Boston public Dataset can reveal interesting and juicy facts.
Even though there is nothing juicy about Bed bugs but the data about Boston open cases for Bed bugs is quite interesting and worth looking at.
We uploaded the entire 50 mb data dump which is around 500K rows into the Data Visualizer and filtered the category for Bed Bugs. Splitting the date into its date hierarchy components we then plotted the month (more...)
