On Wednesday December 9th, we will be upgrading the Oracle R enterprise engine to the latest version. This version of Oracle R enterprise requires the installation of Oracle R package version 1.4.1 and uses R version 3.1.1. PacFIN staff can help users with database access to set this up on their system.

Oracle R Enterprise allows users to run analyses directly from the database rather than having to extract data and import it to a local version of R. Another benefit to Oracle R enterprise is that calculation take place on the server, thus using the speed, memory and disk space of the server to complete complex calculations.
