Overview

​The main purpose of the course is to give students the ability to use Microsoft R Server to create and run an analysis on a large dataset, and show how to utilize it in Big Data environments, such as a Hadoop or Spark cluster, or a SQL Server database.

Intended Audience

​The primary audience for this course is people who wish to analyze large datasets within a big data environment.

The secondary audience are developers who need to integrate R analyses into their solutions.
