Without any additional investment, the scope of functions implemented in R is unrivaled. For the future, it seems rather unlikely that any commercial corporation will find a sustainable business model with the same drive and power to innovate as the R community.
R - Statistic Language - Next Generation Software
R, which is an object oriented programming language for statistical data analysis, is the best alternative for the analysis and visualization of data, data mining, and business intelligence.
R is extremely powerful and very flexible in comparison to most of the big commercial software packages for data analysis. Plus, R is open source and is constantly being developed by a global scientific community. Hence, R sets an unprecedented standard of functionality, quality and contemporariness. The fact that the scientific community as well as big companies such as IBM®, SAS® and Revolution Analytics® engage so heavily in R, creates a strong investment reliability for R users.
The programming language R provides users with a large spectrum of functions reaching far beyond the application of traditional statistics. As of now, R is in the process of becoming the multi-platform lingua franca of data analysis – today there are more than 6.000 R extension packages available on CRAN, which support data analysis in every way possible as well as imaginable.
Reasons for R
Scope of Functions
The main motor for the constant progress of R lies in academia. Two thirds of the core developers of R are professors, all of whom are professional data scientists in the academic or commercial sector. R provides a very high reliability as well as state-of-the-art statistical methods.
R in the Analytic Stack
R can be integrated into any layer of analytical and reporting architecture – from the data storage layer over the data analysis layer to the layer presenting results. Almost every provider of name for analytical solutions offers an interface for R and a variety of integrational possibilities.
R is one of the most resourceful alternatives for the generation of presentable graphics. The entire workflow from data management over analysis to visualization can be realized in R.
With the same code, the same tools and similar know-how, R experts are capable of applying data mining, text mining or regression analysis to both, big data on a Hadoop cluster or small-scale studies.
The involvement of the scientific community in the development of R combined with the ever-growing engagement of large companies with R underlines the forcefulness with which R has conquered the market of data analytics in the last years, and raises expectations of an even brighter future.
R is open source and, opposed to other solutions for data analysis, there are no licensing costs whatsoever associated with it.
International universities train more and more students and employees in R. As open source initiatives – just like Linux – are very popular in academia, a very steady stream of experts in analysis with R originates from the universities.
Being independent of any platform, R is universally applicable and rather simple to integrate into existing IT landscapes.
It is a pleasure to support you
Since 2011, the eoda R-Academy provides people interested in R with a modular training program, which deals with the multitude of possibilities of the R statistic language in a practically oriented and holistic manner.
With eoda R trainings you can ensure that you will acquire the expertise needed to employ R as efficiently as possible. Become an expert with the eoda R-Academy.
Whether it may be reporting, data mining, predictive analytics, big data, or small data – we develop customized solutions on the basis of R.
In addition to the solutions developed in house, we also offer you our partner products coming from the likes of Microsoft, Oracle, Revolution Analytics, RStudio, Salesforce, and talend. Therefore, we have an all-encompassing portfolio of high quality data analysis.
You have recognized the advantages of R – but you still hesitate because of the risks and costs attached to the migration of your thousands of lines of script in another statistic language to R? We are happy to have your back with our longstanding expertise as one of the first German integrators of R. From the migration of smaller applications to the transfer of entire analytical processes to R, we will find the most advantageous approach to optimize your analytical processes with R.
eoda is part of the R Community
We support the constant progress of R
We from eoda engage in the development and expansion of R, because we rely on R as the basis of our analytical competence and services. That is to say that we are the first German company to be a member of the R-Foundation, which pushes the constant development of R
eoda is sponsor of useR-Group in Kassel
eoda supports the local useR-Group in Kassel actively. The group organizes regular meetings at the headquarters of eoda, in which R users and developers stemming from the academic and the business sector participate. The useR-Group in Kassel welcomes everybody
