R Big Data Trainings

Big Data is on every CIO's mind. It is presently synonymous with open source technologies like Hadoop, and the 'NoSQL' class of databases. Another technology that is shaking things up in Big Data is R. R is an open source programming language and software environment designed for statistical computing and visualization. The statistical software R is the fastest growing analytics platform in the world, and is established in both academia and companies for robustness, reliability and accuracy.

Our R trainings demonstrate the usability of R for big data analyses covering the following topics:

  • Using R in Business Intelligence in Big Data (data mining, Rmongdb, RHadoop)
  • Big Data Analyses with R (RHadoop, Rmongodb, parallel, bigmemory)
  • R for beginners (intro, basics, RStudio, packages, plots, reproducible research)
  • From data to graphs with R (plyr, ggplot, ggmap, shiny, ...)
  • Building R packages

Big Data Breakfast Hamburg

Big Data is definitely a big deal but enterprises often confuse what "big" means. As a result, many enterprises have held back from effectively leveraging the disparate, real-time data they have today, using technologies their developers already know and love. In this seminar, we'll look at what caused the Big Data movement, how enterprises should be planning to capitalize on their data, and the new technologies that help enterprises tame their data, using real-world case studies. Join our Big Data Breakfast Seminar on July 2nd 2013 in Hamburg and hear from Matt Asay, VP of Corporate Strategy at 10gen (the MongoDB company). Customer presenter to be confirmed.

The event starts with breakfast from 8am, we commence at 9am and conclude by 11.30am.

  • Munich use R Group

    R is an open source programming language for statistical computing, data analysis, and graphical visualization. It has an estimated one million users worldwide, and its user base is constantly growing. While most commonly used within academia, in fields such as computational biology and applied statistics, it is gaining currency in commercial areas such as quantitative finance and business intelligence. Among R's strengths as a language are its powerful built-in tools for inferential statistics, its compact modeling syntax, its data visualization capabilities, and its ease of connectivity with persistent data stores (from databases to flatfiles). In addition, R's open source nature and its extensibility via add-on "packages" has allowed it to keep up with the leading edge in academic research. For all its strengths, though, R has an admittedly steep learning curve; the first steps towards learning and using R can be challenging. To this end, the Munich useR Group is dedicated to bringing together practitioners of R to exchange knowledge, inspire new users, and spur the adoption of R for innovative research and commercial applications.
