Leveraging Advanced SQL for Analytics
Most analysts, data scientists, and aspiring data scientists know basic SQL for pulling data from databases that they then put into Python, R, and other tools. What if you could save a step and run the analytics right in the database? With the Oracle Database you can do most of the same functions that you could do with a data miner, R, statistics, etc. all with SQL. In this session, we’ll walk through advanced SQL functions such as statistics functions, analytic & windowing SQL, pattern matching, and prediction.

Who Are These People? Analyzing Collaborate Attendee Data with Advanced Analytics
Join me for a case study in which I explain how I used Oracle Advanced Analytics tools to answer questions for the user group boards about the attendees of Collaborate and their experiences. I’ll show the process of first collecting the data and cleaning it to make it usable. Then I’ll show the data mining and machine learning algorithms I used within SQL Developer Data Miner. Lastly, I’ll show R functions that I used for further analysis. In the end, these insights will improve your experience with Collaborate!
