Oracle Database Tips by Donald Burleson

Oracle business analytics are used heavily in marketing where OLAP and BI systems predict important buying trends and customer profiling.  In the area of medicine, Oracle business analytics are used to track drug treatment regimens, data that saves lives, but only because a business analytics professionals has cleansed, scrubbed, and prepared the raw data, transforming it into valuable information.

If you are seeking Oracle business analytics experts, beware that not all business intelligence consultants are experts.  If you want real-world business analytics expert support, just call BC for consulting by known industry experts.
