Alteryx Designer, the self-service analytics workflow tool, recently added integration with Microsoft R. This allows you to train models provided by Microsoft R, and create predictions from them, without needing to write R code — you simply drag-and-drop to create a workflow.


In a recent post at the Microsoft R blog, Bharath Sankaranarayan walks through the process of building a model to predict response rates in a marketing campaign. In the post, you'll see how to create a workflow that connects to data loaded in SQL Server, and trains a logistic regression model on the data in-database. For the complete walk through, check out the blog post linked below.
