The data analysis specialist eoda presents the programme of the R Academy for 2016. The R Academy is the comprehensive training concept for the open-source programming language R. It offers users a modular course structure covering the topics R and data analysis – either in Kassel (Germany) or as on-site training. More than 1,000 satisfied participants have already used the eoda Training.

Attractive course programme with focus on professional use of R

R is considered one of the best solutions for analysing and visualizing data, data mining and business intelligence. More and more companies in the German-speaking area are making use of the potential of R for their data-assisted processes – from sales forecast to predictive maintenance to risk analysis. “The practical requirements with regard to performance, reproducibility or maintainability of the scripts have as well been taken into account for the conception of our new course programme as methodical developments in the field of R”, Katharina Heidelbach, responsible product manager at eoda, explains.

R Academy paves the way for beginners and advanced users

As in past years, the R Academy does not just address professional R users but is also designed to pave the way for R beginners and those switching from SPSS or SAS.

The R Academy is aimed at equipping every participant, regardless of prior knowledge and field of application, with the knowledge necessary for maximizing the benefits of using R.

Additionally, the individual R Academy offers the possibility of combining different modules to an individual course – also in English if desired.

Companies react to the digital transformation

The hype about data science is not just a trend but has long become a key competence in many sectors. Companies have already realized that the most sustainable way to tackle the challenge of the digital transformation is by building up own data science teams. The eoda R training is an important component of this process and the starting point for implementing data-driven projects. In order for this to be successful, eoda complements its training with consulting, support and solutions to form a holistic portfolio for R users.
