Book Description

Big data analytics is the process of examining large amounts of data of a variety of types to uncover hidden patterns, unknown correlations, and other useful information. Such information can provide competitive advantages over rival organizations and result in business benefits, such as more effective marketing and increased revenue. New methods of working with big data, such as Hadoop and MapReduce, offer alternatives to traditional data warehousing.

Big Data Analytics with R and Hadoop is focused on the techniques of integrating R and Hadoop by various tools such as RHIPE and RHadoop. A powerful data analytics engine can be built, which can process analytics algorithms over a large scale dataset in a scalable manner. This can be implemented through data analytics operations of R, MapReduce, and HDFS of Hadoop.

You will start with the installation and configuration of R and Hadoop. Next, you will discover information on various practical data analytics examples with R and Hadoop. Finally, you will learn how to import/export from various data sources to R. Big Data Analytics with R and Hadoop will also give you an easy understanding of the R and Hadoop connectors RHIPE, RHadoop, and Hadoop streaming.
