Microsoft recognizes that customers need powerful analytical models to make data-driven decisions, and to be enable data science and analytics practices within organizations. That’s why Microsoft acquired Revolution Analytics in April this year, so that more people can use and benefit from R.

In this talk, I’ll share some announcements about bringing R to the Microsoft platforms, such as Azure HDInsight, Azure Machine Learning and SQL Server. I’ll also describe our ongoing open-source R projects, including Revolution R Open, RHadoop, and DeployR Open, with a special focus on the reproducibility tools we have developed for R.

Then factor in the unattractive noise that the idling makes, the excessive buzz the trolling motor makes on high speed, and the fact that you might get hung on the something random while casting and waste more time. All in all, you could actually conclude that you’re doing more damage to the productivity of the area by going fast than all that exhausting behavior is worth.
