  • 11. Analytics using R <blatant self promotion> http://www.amazon.com/R-Business-Analytics-A-Ohri/dp/1461443423 R for Business Analytics looks at some of the most common tasks performed by business analysts and helps the user navigate the wealth of information in R and its packages. With this information the reader can select the packages that can help process the analytical tasks with minimum effort and maximum usefulness . The use of Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) is emphasized in this book to further cut down and bend the famous learning curve in learning R. </blatant self promotion>

  • 15. Analytics using other languages Julia- faster than R http://julialang.org/ Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing, with syntax that is familiar to users of other technical computing environments. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library. The library, largely written in Julia itself, also integrates mature, best-of- breed C and Fortran libraries for linear algebra, random number generation, signal processing, and string processing.

  • 18. Analytics using other languages Clojure- for JVM http://clojure.org/ Clojure is a dynamic programming language that targets the Java Virtual Machine . It is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Every feature supported by Clojure is supported at runtime. Clojure is a dialect of Lisp https://bigml.com/gallery/models

  • 36. R -Big Data Packages http://cran.r-project.org/web/views/HighPerformanceComputing.html ● The RHIPE package, started by Saptarshi Guha and now developed by a core team via GitHub, provides an interface between R and Hadoop for analysis of large complex data wholly from within R using the Divide and Recombine approach to big data. ( link ) ● The rmr package by Revolution Analytics also provides an interface between R and Hadoop for a Map/Reduce programming framework. ( link ) ● A related package, segue package by Long, permits easy execution of embarassingly parallel task on Elastic Map Reduce (EMR) at Amazon. ( link ) ● The RProtoBuf package provides an interface to Google's language-neutral, platform-neutral, extensible mechanism for serializing structured data. This package can be used in R code to read data streams from other systems in a distributed MapReduce setting where data is serialized and passed back and forth between tasks. ● The HistogramTools package provides a number of routines useful for the construction, aggregation, manipulation, and plotting of large numbers of Histograms such as those created by Mappers in a MapReduce application.
