A recent Business Times article on Singapore's push to become a tech leader mentions Revolution Analytics new Center of Excellence, set up with the support of the Singapore government to train and grow a pool of data scientists and developers in data science. It includes this quote from SAP:

"This will ensure we are equipping our workforce with the necessary skills around the open source R programming language and advanced analytics which are rapidly shifting from 'niche' to 'standard' requirements in today's world," said Kurt Bilafer, regional vice-president of analytics for SAP Asia Pacific Japan.

Just one more reason why skills in R are becoming increasingly valuable in the workplace.
