Delivering Value from Big Data with Revolution R Enterprise and Hadoop

Bill Jacobs, Director of Product Marketing & Thomas W. Dinsmore, Director of Product Management

Businesses are rapidly investing in Hadoop to manage analytic data stores due to its flexibility, scalability and relatively low cost. However, Hadoop’s native tooling for advanced analytics is immature; this makes it difficult for analysts to use without significant additional training, and limits the ability of businesses to drive value from Big Data.

Revolution R Enterprise leverages open source R, the standard platform for modern analytics. R has a thriving community of more than two million users who are trained and ready to deliver results.

Revolution R Enterprise runs in Hadoop. It enables users to perform advanced analysis on Big Data while working exclusively in the familiar R environment. The software transparently distributes work across the nodes and distributed data of Hadoop without complex programming.

By leveraging Revolution R Enterprise in Hadoop, organizations tap a large and growing community of analysts and all of the capabilities in R with a true cross-platform and open standards architecture.
