Stop Guessing, Start Analyzing: New Analytic View Features in Oracle Database 12cR2″  – Jim Czuprynski Oracle ACE Director

As experienced Oracle DBAs know, building a Data Warehouse is just the beginning of any successful application for performing complex analytics – you’ve also got to build the proper analytic views, fact tables, dimensions, and queries to make sense of the DW’s data. Oracle 12cR2 now provides a simple way to build out just the right objects for an analytics environment using just a few simple commands. Best of all, these new objects can incorporate all the needed measures and calculations so that an application end-user can take advantage of precisely-defined data models without having to construct complex views on their own, thus limiting the chance of producing erroneous analyses through a simple mistake like a missing join or filter.

7:45-815 PM
