Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Forecasting delivers univariate and multivariate time-series forecasts through statistical, machine learning, and deep learning algorithms. Using REST APIs and SDKs, developers can quickly implement OCI Forecasting to predict key business metrics—all without data science expertise.
Includes processes to automatically address preprocessing. Handles missing values, outliers, and quality issues; and aggregates temporal data.
Automatically selects the best training algorithm based on the fewest rolling over cross-validation errors and provides the three best-performing model results.
Outputs explainability and points out influential features in the data. Also provides confidence intervals to help with decision-making while considering variations.
Predict how many products a store will sell of each SKU using information such as historical sales, price, discounts, weather, and holidays. This helps ensure better promotion planning and inventory management.
Predict how many incidents or service tickets will arrive through various channels—such as phone, mail, and SMS text—using historical data, planned releases, service outages, holidays, and more. This helps predict resource utilization and near real-time resource requirements as well as improve customer satisfaction.
Predict hardware demand to support procurement, cut costs, and avoid losing customers due to unavailability.
Predict utility consumption, including water, electricity, and gas, for commercial and residential buildings at the tenant level to support procurement, save money, ensure efficient budget planning, and reduce waste.
Predict orders and shipments from one city to another for improved logistical planning, transportation decisions, and cost savings.
