Analysing Big Data with Microsoft R

Courses Overview

This course will give you the ability to use Microsoft R Server to create and run an analysis on a large dataset, and show how to utilize it in Big Data environments, such as a Hadoop or Spark cluster, or a SQL Server database.

R has great ways to handle working with big data including programming in parallel and interfacing with Spark. In this track, you’ll learn how to write scalable and efficient R code and ways to visualize it too.

In this course you will gain the ability to use Microsoft R Server to create and run an analysis on a large dataset, and show how to utilize it in Big Data environments, such as a Hadoop or Spark cluster, or a SQL Server database.

R is not just a popular language for data science at top tech firms (Facebook, Google, Twitter, Microsoft, Uber, Airbnb, IBM, HP): R is in use at analysis and consulting firms, banks and other financial institutions, academic institutions and research labs, and pretty much everywhere else data needs analysing and visualizing. Even the New York Times uses R!

The primary audience for this course is people who wish to analyse large datasets within a big data environment. The secondary audience are developers who need to integrate R analyses into their solutions.
