The OML application programming interface for R, previously under the name Oracle R Enterprise, is now named Oracle Machine Learning for R (OML4R). The package, class, and function names are not rebranded. They remain ORE, OREbase, ore.frame, ore.connect, and so on.

The OML application programming interfaces for SQL include PL/SQL packages, SQL functions, and data dictionary views. Using these APIs is described in publications, previously under the name Oracle Data Mining, that are now named Oracle Machine Learning for SQL (OML4SQL). The PL/SQL package and database view names are not rebranded. They remain DBMS_DATA_MINING, ALL_MINING_MODELS, and so on.

The Oracle R Advanced Analytics for Hadoop (ORAAH) technology is now Oracle Machine Learning for Spark (OML4Spark).
