David Smith (Revolution Analytics):
Of course, this isn’t the first time that R has been embedded into a data warehousing appliance. IBM Netezza’s iClass device integrates with Revolution R, and AsterData, the Teradata Data Warehouse Appliance, and Greenplum all provide connections to R as well. Here at Revolution Analytics, we think that such enterprise-level integrations with R serve to grow the R ecosystem and serve as validation of R as a key platform for advanced analytics. As CEO Norman Nie said to GigaOm this weekend,
“Oracle’s announcement to embed R demonstrates validation for the leading statistics language and offers further evidence that R is a key weapon in advanced analytics today”
And let’s not leave aside the strategic partnership between Revolution Analytics and Cloudera to include RevoConnectR in the CDH.
