1L How many using R and any benefits from it? 2: Anyone using Splunk for big data that has become the search engine for IT?
1. Not using R (yet)
2. Love Splunk. It was very easy to set it up and get instant insight into what’s going on in the company.
R is fantastic, though I’m not using it daily (yet). I’ve been able to do basic segmentation, explore distributions, make basic graphs and do basic GIS analysis. I’ve done a logistic regression (1) – but this isn’t a tool i’m super familiar with, so haven’t played with it too much.
With instructors for some recent statistics graduate courses I took, it is the preferred analysis environment and rivals SAS, in amount of use. Most recently, I have used it for my own research in survival analysis.
