Oracle Data Mining in Argentina
I spent the week of the 18th in Buenos Aires spreading the word on Oracle Data Mining. I was invited by Snoop Consulting as a keynote speaker at their Update' 06 (warning, the site is in Spanish) event. Snoop Consulting has a very capable technical team. They are positioning themselves to become a leading company of added-value services for information technologies in the region, focused mainly on Service-oriented Architecture and high-end mission-critical systems.
Update' 06 was a large event targeting developers. It had more than 1000 registered attendees. I gave a talk describing how In-Database Analytics is a disruptive technology. By this I mean that it enables new capabilities that were not possible in the traditional way of doing analytics and creating analytics-enabled applications. Here is a link to the presentation pdf.
