A little introduction
As someone who has attended the last 4 AWS re:Invent conferences as well as numerous summits, it’s been exciting to see the evolution of AWS from a niche infrastructure solution to that of a true enterprise grade hosting platform. Being new to Apps Associates, and the application landscape we operate in, it has been very eye opening to learn about some of the lesser known Tier 1 applications the world’s largest organizations rely on, and the subsequent hosting challenges associated with the adoption of cloud infrastructure.

A little bit about me
So, I am presenting a session at Oracle Modern Business Experience but before I get into that, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Legal Studies from the University of Massachusetts, in Amherst, Massachusetts.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) have
become popular mainstream topics. You no doubt have read about them or seen programs about them. Typically, they are presented as very complex topics that require specialized computer processing and large teams of highly experienced data scientists. This was true for many years but it is beginning to change and Oracle is at the forefront of this change. Oracle has built machine learning capabilities directly into its Cloud BI platform, Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC), thereby making functionality like ML and predictive analytics available to regular business analysts (BAs). BAs who are willing to explore this new functionality will find a broad array of ML capabilities that don’t require an extensive background in ML or data science. They will be able to interact with and analyze data in ways they previously have not done and they will be able to add a whole new level of analytical value to their organization – enabling the data-driven decision making so many organizations are pursuing. This functionality is part of the Data Visualization component of OAC and is natively available without any special licensing. In this post, I will show you how to use the machine learning capabilities in Oracle Analytics Cloud to predict HR attrition. It is easy to use and requires no writing of computer code but here are some quick points to know before we begin:
