After a steady rise in the past few years, in 2010 the open source data mining software R overtook other tools to become the tool used by more data miners (43%) than any other (http://www.rexeranalytics.
Several analytic tool vendors have added R-integration to their software. However, Oracle is the largest company to throw their weight behind R. On October 3, Oracle unveiled their integration of R: Oracle R Enterprise (http://www.oracle.com/us/
corporate/features/features- oracle-r-enterprise-498732. html) as part of their Oracle Big Data Appliance announcement (http://www.oracle.com/us/ corporate/press/512001).
Oracle R Enterprise allows users to perform statistical analysis with advanced visualization on data stored in Oracle Database. Oracle R Enterprise enables scalable R solutions, while facilitating production deployment of R scripts and Hadoop based solutions, as well as integration of R results with Oracle BI Publisher and OBIEE dashboards.
This TechCast introduces the various Oracle R Enterprise components and features, along with R script demonstrations that interface with Oracle Database.
