Abstract:

Corporates are beginning to extract business value from their Big Data based on open source solutions such as Hadoop and Spark. R and its academic ecosystem is also needed as basis and first step to model the cases. This technical solutions and unexplored areas will described (how can we distribute at scale a standalone R model) and we will give a few real-life examples based on the projects done at Datalayer implemented at Belgian companies.
