It's been more than four years since I wrote the white paper R is Hot with the goal of introducing R to companies who need modern and flexible data analysis software. It's still the most-downloaded whitepaper on the Revolution Analytics website. But a lot has changed in the past four years: R's popularity has grown, and more and more companies are adopting R for various applications.
So I decided to update the paper with the latest statistics on R usage, and even more examples of how R is used in practice. I've also included updated information on the free Revolution R Open, the supported Revolution R Plus, and the big-data capable Revolution R Enterprise. You can download the PDF for “R is Still Hot, and getting hotter” here or at the link below.
