Oracle's SQL Based Statistical Functions - FREE in every Oracle Database On-Premise on in Cloud [63601]
By: Charlie Berger

Charlie blogs, "Included in every Oracle Database is a collection of basic statistical functions accessible via SQL. These include descriptive statistics, hypothesis testing, correlations analysis, test for distribution fits, cross tabs with Chi-square statistics, and analysis of variance (ANOVA).

Oracle Database 12c Release 2: Analytic Views & SQL Developer [61839]
By Jeff Smith

One of the major new features in Oracle Database 12c Release 2 is Analytic Views

Jeff Smith writes, "An analytic view is a type of view that can be used to easily extend the content of a star schema with aggregated data, measure calculations and descriptive metadata, and to simplify the SQL needed to access data.

Analytic views layer a hierarchical/dimensional model over data. Analytic views are defined over the dimension tables and fact table of a star schema. Hierarchies are defined over dimension tables. The analytic view references hierarchies and a fact table.

I'm not here to introduce this new feature itself, more just to let you know that Oracle SQL Developer v4.2 has a TON of support for it - courtesy the same team that built this database feature.

If you'd like to take a tutorial on this subject, LiveSQL has a nice on-line demo - no database required!..."
