Recently, I attended an Oracle'Test Drive' workshop session that offered customers a hands-on experience using Oracle Analytics Cloud. This event was held in Houston and allowed more than 45 customers to gain a better understanding of the power of Oracle Analytics Cloud and the business benefits it offers. A key Oracle partner, Perficient, led several labs which covered several modules including predictive analytics, machine learning, and visual analytics. These events are free of charge and include an overview of dashboards and pre-built reports; data visualization, machine learning and data modeling using Oracle Essbase. In Houston, it was interesting to hear the partner's perspective on how they are seeing analytics change their customer's businesses.
