Event Details

What's all the fuss about R?

Let me show you why I'm excited about R! In my last role we coped fine without it, and I'm sure you are doing the same. In my current role, we've implemented R in a number of areas, and the impact is remarkable. Things like trend-lines have become trivial; data mining is no longer dependent on the handful of algorithms within SSAS, nor on DMX within MDX for querying; and R graphics is to die for. Libraries written by experts are available to let you implement cutting-edge technology, meaning that I can stand on the shoulders of giants for analytics and visualisations. Come along and share in my excitement about R!
