Finally, I found something that I was looking for a long time, thought is would be very useful. A simplified maze of #MachineLearning #Algorithm feeling like Nirvana Today #MachinesWouldRuleWorld #AdvanceAnalytics
Hope this helps

“Superior Data Analytics is the antidote to Business Failure”
The Oracle 12.2c Database has been released and is currently available as a Cloud Service. The on-site version should be with us soon.
A few weeks ago I listed some of the new features that you will find in the Oracle Data Miner GUI tool (check out that blog post). I'll have another blog post soon that looks a bit closer at how the new OAA features are exposed in this tool.
Last week I read an article from Bernard Marr about why #SelfService #BI, #Analytics and #Reporting might not be such a good idea. There is a growing need with Business Users to do things themselves. The world is changing fast and there are situations where people want to act quickly to stay ahead of the … Continue reading "Self Service Business Analytics is great but there is more."
Have you ever been faced with having to generate a data set in the format that is needed by another analytics tool? or having to generate a data set in a particular format but you don't have the software that generates that format? For example, if you are submitting data to the FDA and other bodies, you may need to submit the data in a SAS formatted file. There are a few ways you can (more...)
In this 5th blog post in my series on using the capabilities of Oracle Text, Oracle R Enterprise and Oracle Data Mining to process documents and text, I will have a look at some of the machine learning features of Oracle Text.
Oracle Text comes with a number of machine learning algorithms. These can be divided into two types. The first is called 'Supervised Learning' where we have two machine learning algorithms for classification type (more...)
Last Thursday evening (20th October) we had our first Meet-up event for OUG Ireland.
Up to recently we have had a one or two full day SIG events that covered both the Tech and BA/Big Data areas. But we have been finding it increasingly difficult to get speakers and attendees to take a full day out of work to attend the SIG events. This was particularly true for a SIG event we had scheduled to (more...)
With each new release of the Oracle Data Miner (ODMr) tool (part of SQL Developer) an upgrade of your ODMr Repository is needed. This is because of the numerous new features in the tool. This is particularly the case with ODMr (SQLDev) 4.2.
No most of the new features for ODMr 4.2 will not be visible until you are running a 12.2 Database. But a small number of new features are available (more...)
One of Oracle’s focus points within the Oracle Business Analytics Suite is Oracle Data Visualisation. The Oracle Business Analytics Strategy is based on three pillars. One of these pillars is; “See the Signals”, Visual Analytics in every solution. It doesn’t matter whether you run Oracle Business Analytics in the Cloud or On-Prem, Stand-alone or integrated in … Continue reading "Oracle Data Visualisation License Pricing"
This blog post is my contribution to the OTN Appreciation Day, the brain child of Tim Hall (read his blog post here).
For my contribution, I'm going to write about something that is a bit different to what most people will be writing about. Most people will be writing about some feature of the Oracle Database or maybe their favourite tool.
I'm not going to do that. What I'm going to write about (more...)
Come along to the first OUG Ireland meet-up on the 20th October, in Bank of Ireland, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, between 18:15 and 20:00.
Over the years the OUG Ireland SIG committee have organised one day SIG events once or twice a year. This is in addition to the annual OUG Ireland conference (typically held in March). Sometimes it has been a challenge to get people to attend, sometimes it has been a challenge to (more...)
A couple of weeks ago during the madness of Oracle Open World there was some new product releases and lots of updates to existing products.
One such product was SQL Developer. They released an Early Adopter version (EA1). This is where you can try out the new version of the product, but you need to be careful as it is not the GA/Production version. So it may have some "features".
One component of SQL Developer (more...)
Over the past 12 months there has been an increase in the number of Machine Learning notebooks becoming available.
What is a Machine Learning notebook?
As the name implies it can be used to perform machine learning using one or more languages and allows you to organise your code, scripts and other details in one application.
The ML notebooks provide an interactive environment (sometimes browser based) that allows you to write, run, view results, share/collaborate (more...)
I was at Oracle Open World last week and have some notes to share on the upcoming EssCS (Essbase Cloud Service) product and on Essbase in general.
EssCS will be Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) product and will be priced on the number of cores and memory. I believe there will be a metered and an unmetered pricing as well (metered meaning pay per cycle or some other usage measure). According to presentations at Open (more...)
This is the fourth blog post of a series on using Oracle Text, Oracle R Enterprise and Oracle Data Mining. Make sure to check out the previous blog posts

The title of the books is 'Oracle R Enterprise'. Make sure to check it out on Amazon.

Yes, I was working on two books at the same time.
Yes, that was a lot of work, and (more...)
I have always liked MDX as it exposes very powerful operations for creating member sets. It has this amazing ability to take a set of members, union it with another set of members, intersect it with yet another set of members, and then exclude members from yet another set. This is very
Recently, I was talking with a customer about some creative uses for MDX and they told me about some cool things they (more...)

We know that we can perform outer joins in OBIEE in the Logical Layer. The problem with this mechanism is that it is not possible for one logical table sources (LTS) to join to a fact by an inner join and the other to join to the fact by an outer join. Let us (more...)
As many of you know, I have spent many years helping the Hyperion community in many ways. I have wrote this blog for quite some time, have taken on the OlapUnderground Utilities and provided free support through my company, In other words, I have worked hard to give back to the community and, in return, have had many kind words from people we have helped.
As a result of this spirit of giving back, I (more...)
