MOC 20773 - Analyzing Big Data with Microsoft R

This course can be delivered live online, at your offices, or at any other location.

In this Analyzing Big Data with Microsoft R training class students learn to use Microsoft R Server to create and run an analysis on a large dataset, and how to utilize it in Big Data environments, such as a Hadoop or Spark cluster, or a SQL Server database.

The primary audience for this course is people who wish to analyze large data sets within a big data environment. The secondary audience is developers who need to integrate R analyses into their solutions.
