“Every organization is now exploring data science and machine learning as a key way to proactively develop competitive advantage, but the lack of comprehensive tooling and integrated machine-learning capabilities can cause these projects to fall short,” said Amit Zavery, executive vice president of Oracle Cloud Platform, in a prepared statement. “With the combination of Oracle and DataScience.com, customers will be able to harness a single data science platform to more effectively leverage machine learning and big data for predictive analysis and improved business results.”

Financial terms, and an expected closing date for the deal, were not available.

Earlier this month, Oracle announced the availability of Oracle Autonomous Analytics Cloud, Oracle Autonomous Integration Cloud and Oracle Autonomous Visual Builder Cloud.
