Oracle Advanced Analytics and Oracle Spatial and Graph options are now included in the SE2 and Enterprise licences, no longer available as add-on options.
This is great news for all those customers that have struggled with understanding when those options are activated, and the difference between Locator and Spatial.
Effective December 5, 2019, Oracle Advanced Analytics (OAA) and Oracle Spatial and Graph (OSG) options are included with Oracle Database. This affects Enterprise Edition, SE2 and Database Cloud Service (DBCS) Standard Edition and Enterprise Edition.
Oracle Database includes industry-leading multi-model and analytic capabilities. As a converged database, Oracle Database supports multiple data types and data models (e.g. spatial, graph, JSON, XML), algorithms (e.g., machine learning, graph and statistical functions) and workload types (e.g. operational and analytical). While many of these capabilities are included in Oracle Database products and cloud services today, Oracle’s goal is to provide these advanced machine learning, spatial and graph development APIs to all developers and applications.
