Pattern Matching lands on your BI dashboard!

Our BI team has added SQL pattern matching to their demo VM environment which is used by the sales teams and Oracle partners to demonstrate the capabilities of our BI system.

There is a short demo on YouTube: - "SampleApp V309 What's New Overview" which shows a SQL pattern matching dashboard in OBI EE.

If you jump to point 1:50 this is where the pattern matching content starts and it runs for about 15-20seconds - obviously there is a lot of great content so do please watch the complete video. The data set in the demo is the publicly available flight information data which is commonly used with the R language demos.Technorati Tags: , , , , , ,

Oracle Database 12c delivers big data and data warehousing for the Enterprise

We have just released a series of five short video interviews with George Lumpkin, Vice President of Product Management, on the new 12c features that related to big data and data warehousing. I am pleased to see the new SQL pattern matching capabilities get in mention in chapter 2 - a quick recap if you missed my recent blog posts
SQL Pattern Matching introduces a new SQL syntax, along with optimized performance, for detecting patterns in a sequence of events stored in a database table. For example, one might want to look for trends in a stock price, or for suspicious behavior stored in activity log. With Oracle 12c, these queries can be expressed in a simple syntax, without requiring recursive joins or other complex SQL constructs.
