Description:

R is a free software project for statistical computing and graphics, which is already well established in the data science world and it is used by many researchers and statisticians around the world. R is also gaining popularity outside the academic area and is being integrated with many tools and platforms. You can use R to analyze your DB2 data, your data in Big Data platforms, or even your data in cloud.<br /><br />This presentation will introduce the R project, will show its main benefits, and will guide you how you can use it to process your data across the platforms and data sources. We will also discuss the integration of R with DB2 as a data source and with Spark as a processing engine.
