7:15pm - 8pm Using R with Hadoop
Enabling business users to utilize Hadoop as a vital part of analytics projects allows businesses to quickly get value out of their Hadoop investment. R, being a prolific and rapidly growing data analysis language, now has an even stronger place in the Hadoop ecosystem.
We'll be discussing:
• Use cases for data mining and statistical / predictive analytics in Hadoop
• Ways to use open source R and other R packages to move analytics to Hadoop
• Demos that show how Revolution R Enterprise and Hortonworks can further integrate for big data analytics applications such as customer analytics/ churn and fraud detection.
