R at Microsoft

June 26, 2015

(This article was first published on Revolutions, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

I was honoured to be the presenter at last night’s meeting of SURF, the 11th largest R user group worldwide. The topic of my presentation was “R at Microsoft”, where I described how Microsoft has enthusiastically embraced R for internal use (such as for Azure capacity planning, and Xbox gaming improvements), and as a feature of its data platforms including Azure ML and (soon) SQL Server 2016. Not to mention of course the continued support for Revolution R Enterprise and our R-related open source projects including Revolution R Open.

I’ve embedded the slides below. Many thanks to the SURF organizers and members for the warm welcome and the great conversations over pizza and (Australian!) beer.
