The Oracle Data Mining Administrator's Guide explains how to install the various components of Oracle Data Mining and perform basic administration tasks.
The preface contains these topics:
This guide is intended for a spectrum of users who need to install the software that supports Oracle Data Mining:
Individual users who want to evaluate Oracle Data Mining
Departmental DBAs who manage an instance of Oracle Database for Data Mining users
Enterprise DBAs and IT professionals who need to support Data Mining users as part of administering Oracle Database for a larger user community
Note:Although this manual provides DBAs with the basic information they need to install and administer Oracle Data Mining, this manual is targeted primarily at the individual user.
Our goal is to make Oracle products, services, and supporting documentation accessible, with good usability, to the disabled community. To that end, our documentation includes features that make information available to users of assistive technology. This documentation is available in HTML format, and contains markup to facilitate access by the disabled community. Accessibility standards will continue to evolve over time, and Oracle is actively engaged with other market-leading technology vendors to address technical obstacles so that our documentation can be accessible to all of our customers.
