ODTUG Renames the BI Community, Now the Analytics Community

What does this change mean for the community? It means we encompass more than just BI. It means if you are interested in any of the tools that are used to analyze data and turn it into information, we are here for you! Have a question? Want to share knowledge you gained from a project? Connect with other like-minded analysts who explore data in myriad ways, both on premises and in the cloud. Analytics takes data and transforms it into information that tells a story, provides insight, creates opportunity, avoids catastrophe, initiates action, and more! Join the Analytics Community to share your passion for all things analytics, whether you are using OAC, OBIEE, ML/AI, R, Python, Essbase, DV, Big Data, Data Warehousing, or other platforms. We want you to be part of the growth of the Analytics Community. Be sure to look for our new Twitter username, Orcl_Analytics, and use #orclanalytics to connect with members.
