In-Database Predictive Analytics
John A. De Goes
Predictive analytics have long lived in the domain of statistical tools like R. Increasingly, however, as companies struggle to deal with exploding volumes of data not easily analyzed by small data tools, they are looking at ways of doing predictive analytics directly inside the primary data store.
This approach, called in-database predictive analytics, eliminates the need to sample data and perform a separate ETL process into a statistical tool, which can decrease total cost, improve the quality of predictive models, and dramatically shorten development time. In this class, you will learn the pros and cons of doing in-database predictive analytics, highlights of its limitations, and survey the tools and technologies necessary to head down the path.
