Oracle R Enterprise, a component of the Oracle Advanced Analytics Option, 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. R users can run R commands and scripts for statistical and graphical analyses on data stored in the Oracle Database. R users can develop, refine, and deploy R scripts that leverage the parallelism and scalability of the database to automate data analysis. Data analysts and data scientists can run R packages and develop and operationalize R scripts for analytical applications in one step—without having to learn SQL. Oracle R Enterprise performs function pushdown for in-database execution of base R and popular R packages. Because it runs as an embedded component of Oracle Database, Oracle R Enterprise can run any R package either by function pushdown or via embedded R while the database manages the data served to the R engines.
With the new release of Oracle R Enterprise 1.4, Oracle introduces enhanced high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure, new and enhanced parallel distributed predictive algorithms for both scalability and performance, added support for production deployment, and support for Oracle R Distribution 3.0.1 / R 3.0.1. A sample of enhancements include:
|"We at Slacker Radio are excited about the new release of Oracle R Enterprise 1.4. The enhanced control over embedded R execution will enable us to optimize our predictive modeling workflows with greater precision. As our data sets contain thousands of variables, the enhanced ORE algorithms to address high cardinality categoricals offer us new possibilities for scalable in-database advanced analytics."
-- Jordan Meyer, Data Scientist at Slacker Radio
|"Oracle R Enterprise together with Oracle Active Data Guard technology enabled StubHub to offer an environment for data scientists to work directly with database resident data using the open source R language scripts as is. That enabled us to create an agile platform for data science reusing our existing data warehouse infrastructure and processes, and has demonstrated future possibilities for expansion"
-- Yadong Chen, Principal Architect, StubHub
|"We have chosen Oracle Advanced Analytics to successfully implement and replace a full Statistical workflow. With new Oracle R Enterprise 1.4, we were able to execute computations on thousands of attributes in parallel that was impossible or very slow with open-source R, and we completed our workflow with the Oracle Data Mining easy-to-use GUI for in-Database modeling."
-- Karlo Kovacic, BI Director, Zagrebačka banka (ZABA)
|"Designing high performance microprocessor involves meticulous analysis and optimization of the many underlying circuits and systems. The analytical models used in the analysis and optimization tools are often derived from large volumes of silicon and simulation data. We recently adopted Oracle R Enterprise to enhance the model generation capabilities in all our tools, leveraging ORE's rich in-database analysis capabilities. The deployment of ORE within the Oracle microprocessor tools environment has introduced a technology that significantly expands our data analysis and modeling capabilities and opens the door to many new applications."
-- Mike Splain, Executive Vice President
Oracle Microelectronics Group
|"R is a powerful and interesting tool for data analysis! ORE brings R into a scalable DB engine (solving problems of data management, analysis and scalability). We actually can obtain information and added value from not so actively used data."
-- Stefano Alberto Russo, Researcher at CERN Openlab
|"Oracle Advanced Analytics will enable Financiera Uno to stop having to extract the data from the DWH for Analysis, and to be able to develop Risk models for our commercial and collections divisions that can be rapidly deployed, taking advantage of the powerful in-Database features of the Oracle Solution"
-- Estanislao Chipana, Risk Deputy Manager, Financiera Uno
