Oracle Data Warehouse

Including other products, Oracle is very specialized in business support. Choosing Oracle Data Warehouse would be a safe choice for an enterprise-level company (more than a thousand employees). Healthcare organizations may want to consider Oracle, as they are typically conservative with privacy and security issues with patient data. Although cloud-based systems are widely being adopted in the healthcare industry (such as population research or genomics), core data sets (such as patients' sensitive medical records) may be better stored with a home-grown data center and warehouse solution.

SAS Enterprise Miner

SAS Enterprise Miner is world-class software for individuals interested in developing reproducible models in a reasonable amount of time. Perhaps the most useful part of SAS Enterprise Miner is the ability to compare models with other models without writing code. The ensemble modeling capabilities is the easiest way to do ensemble modeling I have come across. SAS Enterprise Miner is well-suited for beginning to advanced analysts who know something about advanced analytics. The software is not well-suited for analysts or companies that have little interest in advanced modeling.

Pros

Oracle Data Warehouse

  • Able to handle very large data sizes efficiently from a performance, high availability and manageability perspective. This is accomplished through the Oracle Partitioning functionality. Partitioning allows large segments (tables, IOT index-organized tables, indexes) to be broken into smaller segments at the physical layer but treated as a whole at the logical layer.
  • Provides support for dual-format architecture through Oracle In-Memory functionality. Without any change to application code one can obtain in-memory performance. This functionality enables us to have the tables represented in both the row format and the column format using in-memory format. This is a huge boost for BI/analytic queries since the Oracle optimizer is able to intelligently choose the appropriate format.
  • Provision to materialize a subset of table data or table joins. This is through materialized views and the optimizer will rewrite the query against the base tables to make use of this materialized view. This provides a huge performance boost and is critical in VLDBs as in a data warehouse. The query rewrite is fully transparent to users.
  • Provides multiple compression capabilities. This is very useful not only for deducing the storage foot print but as well as increase performance at different layers of the infrastructure including query performance. The compression functionality can be applied against both structured and unstructured data.
  • With the advent of Engineered Systems (Exadata, Database Machine, SuperCluster) there are specific features and functionalities that can further boost the Oracle data warehouse. These are related to consolidation, Smart Scan, Storage Indexes, EHCC (Exadata hybrid columnar compression) and much more.
  • RAC - Real Application Clusters (with 2 or more nodes) provides functionality for high availability, performance and scaling as the work load increases. The parallelism is provided both within a node and as well as across nodes. If for any reason a node goes down the data warehouse is still available through other nodes and the running queries are transparently failed over to the surviving nodes.

SAS Enterprise Miner

  • Enterprise Miner is really visual and lets you do a whole lot without actually going into the detailed options. For decent results, you should really explore the different advanced options though.
  • The recent versions of Miner allow users to use R code in Miner. You can then compare several models and approach to get the best performing model.
  • The resulting data is really well displayed and easy to understand (ex: the lift graph, score ranking, etc.)
  • Miner has the ability to integrate custom SAS code which allows the user to add functionalities that are specific to the project.

Cons

Oracle Data Warehouse

  • Customer support isn't the best out there. We usually have to wait about an hour to get some form of assistance.
  • Pricing is a bit higher than many of its competitors such as AWS Redshift.
  • Tweaking features requires dedicated staff. Software is fairly advanced. Would be difficult to use for newcomers.

SAS Enterprise Miner

  • With large data sets, SAS Enterprise Miner sometimes takes a long time to run. Sometimes you have to just leave your computer running while Enterprise Miner does its thing.
  • If you want complete control over the modeling framework, you have to take what Enterprise Miner does and customize it. SAS seems to be working hard on making things easier to customize, but it's not completely there yet.
  • The graphic capabilities of SAS Enterprise Miner leave a lot to be desired, especially in the era of self-service business intelligence software.

I have contacted SAS twice in the past year and they have been super responsive both times. They solved my problem. I am also registered for an in-person class next month and they called today to tell me that it will be an online-only session. They apologized for the change and registered me for the online version. Super helpful!

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Data Warehouse

Oracle is, in my opinion, the top dog in this space. I feel like the other vendors are playing catch-up to where Oracle is right now. It is also likely the most expensive option out there.

SAS Enterprise Miner

SAS EM has a very great set of machine learning and predictive analytics toolsets, which helped our organization achieve its goals. We used other tools, but for us, SAS EM was the most intuitive and easy to learn the tool and it provides greater data exploration and data preparation capabilities compared to the other tools we used.

Return on Investment

Oracle Data Warehouse

  • Very cost effective for large databases.
  • Very fast results on simple queries.
  • Analytical functionalities are of wide range, which makes it very cost effective.
  • For smaller businesses, it might be a great asset.
  • Some features are supposed to be bought separately, so one needs to consider this before licensing with Oracle DW.

SAS Enterprise Miner

  • SAS Enterprise Miner is a positive ROI in the sense that it saves a ton of time coding.
  • SAS Enterprise Miner is a negative ROI in that it's expensive, and perhaps makes analysts brainless.
