R and Data Management

Date: 2018-05-23 at 18:00
Location: Melbourne, Australia

Description Snippet:

R is most often seen as providing a very broad range of analytical and BI functions. However, data management is much more than just analysis and visualisation. Good analytical outcomes come at the end of data value chain for effectively managing the data. The data should be well understood in its quality and lineage. The data we analyse is often the result of integration of multiple data sets varying in structure, sometimes velocity and volume. How does R manage integration?. Control over the data ensures that there is a single source of truth. Access to the data may also need to be controlled. Each one of these represents a specific kind of data practice within the overall discipline of data management.
