Dear Customers and Partners,
On May 16, 2018, Oracle announced that it signed an agreement to acquire DataScience.com, adding a leading data science platform to the Oracle Cloud, enabling customers to fully utilize machine learning. With the combination of Oracle and DataScience.com, customers will harness a single data science platform to more effectively leverage machine learning and big data for predictive analysis and improved business results.
Data science teams use the platform to organize work, easily access data and computing resources, and execute end-to-end model development workflows. Leading organizations are using the DataScience.com platform to improve productivity, reduce operational costs and deploy machine learning solutions faster to power their digital transformations.
DataScience.com empowers data scientists to deliver the business-changing insights executives expect in less time with self-service access to open source tools, data and computing resources, while also improving the ability of IT teams to support that work. Oracle embeds Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning capabilities across its software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) solutions, including big data, analytics and security operations, to enable digital transformations. Together, Oracle and DataScience.com will provide customers with a single data science platform that leverages Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and the breadth of Oracle's integrated SaaS and PaaS offerings to help them realize the full potential of machine learning.
