Oracle Advanced Analytics (OAA) tips

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonMarch 1, 2015

Question:  How to I find out about Oracle Advanced Analytics (OAA)?
Answer:  Oracle Advanced Analytics (OAA) is synonymous with Oracle data mining (ODM).  I recommend the book Oracle Data Mining by Dr. Carolyn Hamm.

Oracle Advanced Analytics is the capstone of Oracle data queries, a method for defining cohorts of related data items and tracking them over time. The basic goal of Oracle Advanced Analytics is to identify hidden correlations, and the data mining expert must identify populations (e.g. Eskimo's with alcoholism) and then track this population across various external factors (e.g. treatments and drugs).

These Oracle Advanced Analytics Decision Support System (DSS) interfaces require the ability for the end-user to refine their decision rules and change the salient parameters of their domain (i.e. the confidence interval for the predictions).

Performing Oracle advanced analytics in an Oracle data warehouse requires skills that are far-beyond those of an ordinary Oracle system. Many shops employ professionals with advanced degrees in areas that are statistics-centered drawing from people with doctorates in Economics, Experimental Psychology and Sociology. To perform complex and valid studies, the warehouse team must have a statistician with these skills:

  • Multivariate statistics - Even a simple longitudinal study required knowledge of the application of applied multivariate statistics.
  • Artificial Intelligence - Oracle Data Mining (ODM) product is heavily-centered around the application of AI for the mining algorithms and the statistician should have a firm grounding in fuzzy logic, pattern matching and the use of advanced Boolean logic.
