What Is In-Database Analytics?

Written by Indicative Team


In-Database Analytics Defined

In-database analytics is a model of analysis where the processing of data is performed within a database. By processing the data within a database, it allows for the elimination of the overhead of moving large data sets to analytic applications. In this model of analysis, the analytic logic is built into a database instead of in a separate application. 

In-database analytics allows for the analytic capabilities to be embedded in a relational or columnar database. 

Advantages of in-database analytics include:

  •  Parallel Processing
  •  Analytic Optimization
  • Streamlining of  the identification of issues related to the exchange of data and information
  • Providing ad-hoc analysis reporting
