Big Data Analyses with R

Speaker: Dr. rer. nat. Markus Schmidberger

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. Today, R is quickly becoming the new standard for statistics and version number 3.0.0 is already announced for summer 2013. The R statistical software is the fastest growing analytics platform in the world, and is established in both academia and companies for robustness, reliability and accuracy. 

 We will demonstrate the usability of R for business analytics in Big Data problems covering the following topics followed by many real world examples:  

  • R history and introduction 
  • R programming and visualization 
  • R for Big Data: MongoDB and Hadoop connection
