In many organizations, a data science project likely involves the data scientist pulling data to a separate analytics server - analyzing and preparing data and building machine learning models locally

"As enterprises grow their data science teams and data volumes expand, common access to data and the ability to analyze that data in place can dramatically reduce time-to-project-deployment and overall complexity.

Building models and scoring data at scale is a hallmark for Oracle's in-database machine learning - Oracle Machine Learning. Combine this with Oracle Autonomous Database - the converged database with auto-scale capabilities - and a team of data scientists can work comfortably in the same environment. In this blog post, we take a look at factors affecting machine learning model building performance as well as performance numbers illustrating the performance and scalability possible with Oracle Machine Learning.

Gartner recognizes Oracle in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Configure, Price and Quote Application Suites

"What's the best experience you've ever had making a purchase? For me, it was the last time I changed car insurance providers. Kind of surprising, right? It was so fast and the options were so clear every step of the way, it was practically painless (and I saved a pretty decent chunk of change).
