Microsoft R: A Revolution in Advanced Analytics

Microsoft R: A Revolution in Advanced Analytics
Reading Time: 2 minutes

One of the benefits of working on a team at BlueGranite is the collective expertise that I can tap into when needed. Whether it’s a skill that I am learning or a problem that I am stumped on, one or more of my colleagues typically has the ability to point me in the right direction. To benefit the wider community, many of these team members also regularly speak at conferences or user groups, or they blog. Recently, BlueGranite has also offered a monthly webinar that focuses on a methodology or technology that we regularly utilize. In these webinars, you can learn from some of the same great resources that I do.

The opportunity is still a few weeks away, but in honor of the June launch of SQL Server 2016, BlueGranite’s next webinar will focus on how to and why leverage R with a variety of Microsoft technologies. R is gaining a much larger following as Microsoft incorporates it into products like SQL Server and Power BI. As a result, there is a lot of excitement about it, but how do you separate the hype from the true experience?
