I just sat in on the rehearsal for Thursday's webinar by John Deere's Derek Hoffman, Order Fulfillment Forecasting at John Deere: How R Facilitates Creativity and Flexibility. Derek will give a spirited argument of why R is critical for the faming equipment manufacturer's operations: from forecasting demand for equipment, forecasting crop yields (they produce forecasts for more than half the world's food supply), to optimizing the build order on the production line that produces the tractors. Derek, the longest-serving statistician at John Deere, will share how R is used for logistic regression time series modeling, and geospatial analysis in a reliable — and above all, reproducibe — way, and how the results are integrated with Excel and SAP. He'll wrap up with some thoughts on the "Big Data" hype cycle, the impact that professional statisticians will have in the future.

It's going to be a great presentation, don't miss it. It's at 11AM Pacific time this Thursday, and you can register at the link below.
