### Analytical Data Management with R
# Hannes Mühleisen, Data management systems research @cwi_da/@CWInl, Assistant Professor @UvA_Amsterdam

Managing persistent data is a challenge, but purpose-built data management systems are challenging to integrate into an R workflow. Embedded solutions such as SQLite are unable to deliver the performance required to scale to multi-Gigabyte datasets. In my talk, I will review the state of the art in the R ecosystem for persistent data management, discuss the current shared challenges with native type conversion, the application of modern developments in R (especially ALTREP) to the issue and future developments in the analytical data management systems space that will be interesting for R users.
