January 24, 2014

Want to see how you can use a drag-and-drop user interface to run and share R code? Check out our webinar next Wednesday January 29 (hosted by Alteryx and Revolution Analytics): Creating Value That Scales with Revolution Analytics & Alteryx

Alteryx UI

In the webinar, Dan Putler (Alteryx's Data Artisan in Residence) will demonstrate the Alteryx drag-and-drop Alteryx GUI, which provides access to many of R functions (and which you can extend with your own). And because it connects with Revolution R Enterprise, you also benefit from its performance and big-data capabilities. During the demo, Dan will show:

  • How to create a complete data analysis workflow with the Alteryx drag-and-drop user interface;
  • How to run R functions as workflow nodes, and create your own custom R-based nodes;
  • How to analyze big data files without memory limitations, thanks to the Revolution R Enterprise XDF out-of-memory data object;
  • How to publish an Alteryx workflow to a gallery, with an easy-to-use web-based interface that anyone can use to control its operation.

If you're an R user looking for an easier way to interact with R, or looking for a way to share access to your R code running on big data in an easy-to-use web-based interface, you'll want to register for the webinar at the link below.
