Vantage Analytics Library (VAL)


Vantage Analytics Library Product Overview

The Vantage Analytics Library (VAL) consists of a Java XSP (a SQL generator), 2 table operators (to support the KMeans and Decision Tree algorithms) and statistical test lookup tables that enable Data Scientists to analyze large datasets at scale. It operates entirely inside Vantage SQL Engine (SQLE) and no additional infrastructure is required to run. The Vantage Analytics Library behaves like a database version of an API and is compatible with Vantage SQLE 16.20 and 17.0 and 17.05. It is easy to install and requires only 40MB of space in the SQLE database for the functions. The Vantage Analytics Library provides data scientists with the following capabilities, directly in the Vantage SQLE:

•    Descriptive Statistics
          ○  Data Quality/Values
          ○  Univariate Statistics
          ○  Frequency
          ○  Histogram
