North Austin - The New Revolution in Data Science, R integrated into SQL Server

10900 Stonelake Blvd. Suite 225 - Microsoft Office
Austin, Texas 78759
Time: 18:00 - 19:30

Special Notes:

Session Summary:

Data Science is an ever increasing topic in the Data Analytics space and the R language is at the center of most conversations. Discover the powerful statistical language of R and the upcoming integration within SQL Server.

Session Abstract:

Data Science is an ever increasing topic in the Data Analytics space and the R language is at the center of most conversations. R is an open source statistical language that is rapidly gaining popularity due to a robust set of machine learning functionality and a never-ending set of R packages. 

The R language is run as a desktop application and was not built with performance and scale required to accommodate Big Data. Revolution Analytics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft, has solved the performance and scaling issues of a desktop application by creating a more robust enterprise architecture. SQL Server 2016 brings the power of R and Revolution Analytics into the industry leading relational database.

This session will introduce R and demonstrate the functionality and power of using R within SQL Server.

This presentation is ideally suited for Business Intelligence professionals that are interested in understanding the new R Service that is being added to SQL Server.
