The path to competitive advantage is being able to make predictions from Big Data. Therefore, the more you can build predictive analytics into your business processes, the more successful your organization will become. There is no doubt that open-source R is the programming language of choice for predictive analytics, and thanks to Revolution Analytics, R has the enterprise capabilities needed to drive adoption across the organization and for every employee to make data-driven decisions.
Revolution Analytics is to R what the vendor RedHat is to the Linux operating system—a company devoted to enhancing and supporting open-source software for enterprise deployments.
