New England Netezza User Group cordially invite you and your guests to our next meeting and the presentation of

R and Netezza

By Thomas Dinsmore and David Weisman

Sponsored by IQ Associates and IBM


R has become a driving force behind data mining, machine learning, predictive analytics, and traditional statistics. Citi, Facebook, Google, Johnson & Johnson, Kraft, Orbitz, Proctor & Gamble, and the New York Times all depend on R for analyzing complex data and producing elaborate graphics.


In this meeting we have teamed up with an IBM expert, Thomas Dinsmore, and an industry practitioner, David Weisman. Tom will give an introduction of R and the latest of R in Netezza. David will follow up with a session that introduces the R Ecosystem from the commercial, community and technology perspectives. In addition, David will analyze a dataset—from initial exploration through predictive analytics—using R tools and graphics. After this session, you will have a general understanding of R, its scope, and how you can use R in your work.
