It includes a complete set of all the services need to build advanced analytics applications: from data ingestion and management, data warehousing, advanced analytics, data visualization and solution frameworks. You can use Cortana Analytics to build applications using R, by incorporating services including Data Factory, HDInsights Hadoop, and ML Studio.
