High Performance Scoring with Oracle Data Mining

A recent white paper at the Oracle Data Mining website describes how Oracle Data Mining can scale to score millions of records with modest off-the-shelve hardware. The paper shows some results that complement those in a paper presented at VLDB last year. This type of capability is what makes it possible real-time scoring as described in this series of posts.

I have heard that a competitor company could not believe those numbers. In fact, they raised the concern that adding data transformations would affect the results significantly. What they seem to miss is that the data mining server is the Oracle RDBMS. Transformations are easily implemented through SQL and leverage the high performance the Oracle RDBMS is well-known for.
