So says CIO.com, in a recent article 11 Market Trends in Advanced Analytics.
R, an open source programming language for computational statistics, visualization and data is becoming a ubiquitous tool in advanced analytics offerings.
Kirsch says nearly every top vendor of advanced analytics has integrated R into their offering and so that they can now import R models. This allows data scientists, statisticians and other sophisticated enterprise users to leverage R within their analytics package.
One of the big beneficiaries of this trend, Kirsch says, is Revolution Analytics, the leading provider of enterprise support for R. Kaufman and Kirsch also point to advanced analytics firm Predixion, which is focused on extending R beyond data scientists and statisticians to business users through a wizard interface.
The article is based on a recent analyst report, Advanced Analytics: The Hurwitz Victory Index Report 2014. Revolution Analytics was named a Leader in Go To Market Strength in the report.
