Oracle to support R

Open source language now supported

Oracle has made a move in support of R, the open-source language for statistical analysis.

A user interface for Oracle's data mining software is now available that is aimed statisticians and data analysts who work with R but don't know SQL or Oracle's database technology well, according to an official Oracle blog post issued last week.

R was initially created by Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman at the University of Auckland. It now has a sizable community of users, as well as a large number of add-on packages.

The new interface will join existing community-developed R packages for Oracle, including a database driver and a user interface.
