Bottom Line

As a data analytics startup, DataScience received rave reviews from customers. Now that it is part of Oracle and in the process of being integrated into the Oracle Cloud, the jury is still out on how well the finished project offer predictive analytics capabilities. In theory, however, it looks promising as it will combine DataScience’s notebook-based, code-first data science capabilities with Oracle’s cloud services.

Significantly, it will likely be a good choice for organizations with experienced data science teams who rely heavily on open source tools. This is a key niche in the enterprise market.

Product Description

Acquired by Oracle in 2018, DataScience, is a cloud-based big data and machine learning platform that includes predictive analytics capabilities. Currently, Oracle is transitioning the service to a new product it calls Oracle Data Science Cloud. Eventually, the platform will integrate tightly with Oracle’s other cloud-based data and analytics solutions, including Oracle Data Integration Platform Cloud Service, Oracle Analytics Cloud and Oracle Big Data Platform.

Forrester named Oracle a Leader in notebook-based predictive analytics and machine learning.
