You already know that R is an amazingly powerful language for data analysis, but what if you're not a programmer? Or, what if you want to make the data manipulations, visualizations or statistical models you've developed in R available to business analysts, marketers, managers or other non-programming types?

That's why Revolution Analytics has teamed up with Alteryx to bring the power of R to Alteryx's easy-to-use drag-and-drop workflow interface. From your Windows desktop or laptop, you can connect your data to icons like “Contingency Table”, “Histogram”, “Decision Tree” and get results from R without a line of R programming. (If you are an R programmer, you can always drill down and see exactly the R code that's being run, and even modify it if you like.)

Alteryx has had integration with R for a while, but if you have Revolution R Enterprise installed, it will take advantage of the performance benefits of the Revolution R build. Better yet, if you're working with large data sets, you can send data to out-of-memory XDF files, and connect these large data files to R-based icons. In this case, the big-data functions of the Revolution R Enterprise ScaleR package will be used behind the scenes, to speed up computations and avoid out-of-memory errors.

You can see how it works in this video:


We've jointly announced this partnership today, and you can learn more at the Alteryx website. The integrated system will be available early next year, but if you'd like to take a test drive in the meantime please get in touch.
