Having purchased one of the original data mining products (Darwin from
Thinking Machines) Oracle Data Miner (ODMiner) has been built from the
ground-up, and the data mining engine is integrated into the Oracle
server. The Oracle Data Miner is a client-side tool that layers on
this server engine. It provides a graphical user interface for data
mining using wizards to guide a data miner through the data
preparation, data mining, model evaluation, and model scoring process.
As the data analyst transforms the data, builds models, and interprets
results, Oracle Data Miner can automatically generate code needed to
transform the data mining steps into an integrated data mining/BI
application. All Oracle Data Mining functions are accessible by PL/SQL
and/or Java APIs so you can develop enterprise BI applications on top
of your Oracle Database. ODMimer generates Java code from Oracle Data
Miner models and results.
