R is a fascinating programming language and is now used in a range of professions including software development, business analysis, statistical reporting and scientific research. It’s more likely than ever that you’ll encounter R in your organization and even more likely to use it yourself. So why not add it to your resume? Enroll in our course on R Programming and learn the language that has grown significantly in popularity. Analysis of jobs posted on indeed.com show R and Python as two of the most popular language for data science and machine learning(Source: kdnuggets.com).
Analytics is an essential skill needed to run your business successfully. Common applications of analytics include the study of business data using mathematical & statistical analysis to discover and understand patterns which will help predict & improve business performance in the future. Analytics is an integral part of most businesses, and most successful entrepreneurs and business managers have generally been analysts in their own right, even if the analysis they have been doing has largely been intuitive.
It was projected, sometime during 2013, that 90% of the world’s data had been created during the preceding two years going back from that date. As the volume of data grew exponentially, the demand for statisticians, data scientists and professionals capable of organizing, dissecting, summarizing and analyzing the data also grew by leaps and bounds . The domains of Big Data and Predictive Analytics became one of the most important disruptive technologies increasingly used by organizations for accurate projections, forecasts and innovative insights into probable future scenarios. This, in turn, blended well with the other important disruptive technology, A.I., which needed to look at and make sense of huge volumes of data as part of its ongoing and progressive learning processes.
The programming language ‘ R’ is one of the two most important languages used by data scientists, statisticians as well as Predictive Analytics and Big Data Analytics practitioners. It is also important for those working in the domain of machine learning and cognitive computing.
