Unlocking Big Data with R

Unlocking Big Data with R: #R #statistics #visualization The explosion of big data has caused far-reaching ripples in the enterprise. Organizations today are faced with unprecedented challenges in sorting, processing and analyzing their data, which has in turn given rise to a new generation of technologies.

One such example is the R statistics language, which was originally developed by noted statisticians Robert Gentleman and Ross Ihaka at the University of New Zealand in 1997. In recent years, R has emerged as a popular language for advanced analytics, and is also central to the emerging data science movement.
