What is R? 

R is an open source and free programming language that was developed for statistical analysis and production of high-quality graphics. It has long been popular with statisticians and academics who make up part of the large active user community behind R. This community has contributed over 15,000 packages that extend the base functionality of R, making it easy to implement a vast range of techniques for data manipulation, analysis and visualization.  

Why make data-driven decisions?

A range of different industries have adopted R to make sense of their data. From customer segmentation, to demand forecasting, R can be used to improve operations by uncovering patterns within data, using a range of statistical methods, including sophisticated machine-learning techniques.
