R Analytics MasterClass

R is a programming language incorporated with a software environment used for statistical computing and graphics. It is capable of conducting numerical computations through additional packages. Being open source has been beneficial to organizations that specialize in research and development, or are cautious about intellectual property and data governance.

R is also used by a growing number of data analysts inside corporations and academia. It is becoming their lingua franca partly because data mining has entered a golden age, whether being used to set ad prices, find new drugs more quickly or fine-tune financial models. Companies as diverse as Google, Pfizer, Merck, Bank of America, the InterContinental Hotels Group and Shell use it.

COURSE OBJECTIVE

To acquire the knowledge and develop a robust set of R Analytics / Programming skills required for designing and implementation.
