Oracle R Enterprise Documentation Library Release 1.4
Oracle R Enterprise makes the open source R statistical programming language and environment ready for the enterprise and big data. Designed for problems involving large amounts of data, Oracle R Enterprise integrates R with the Oracle Database. R users can run R commands and scripts for statistical and graphical analyses on data stored in the Oracle Database. R users can develop, refine and deploy R scripts that leverage the parallelism and scalability of the database to automate data analysis. Data analysts can run R packages and develop and operationalize R scripts for analytical applications in one step—without having to learn SQL. Oracle R Enterprise performs function pushdown for in-database execution of base R and popular R packages. Because it runs as an embedded component of the database, Oracle R Enterprise can run any R package either by function pushdown or via embedded R while the database manages the data served to the R engine.
