3. Brief History of Analytics
SAS and SPSS led from 1970-s to early 2000s
SAS leads market but very expensive
IBM bought SPSS but still not open source
R, Python and Hadoop Challenged this

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.

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

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.

Large memory and out-of-memory data
● The biglm package by Lumley uses incremental computations to offer lm() and glm() functionality to data sets stored
outside of R's main memory.
● The ff package by Adler et al. offers file-based access to data sets that are too large to be loaded into memory, along with
a number of higher-level functions.
● The bigmemory package by Kane and Emerson permits storing large objects such as matrices in memory (as well as via
files) and uses external pointer objects to refer to them. .
● A large number of database packages, and database-alike packages (such as sqldf by Grothendieck and data.table
● The HadoopStreaming package provides a framework for writing map/reduce scripts for use in Hadoop Streaming; it also
facilitates operating on data in a streaming fashion which does not require Hadoop.
● The speedglm package permits to fit (generalised) linear models to large data.
● The biglars package by Seligman et al can use the ff to support large-than-memory datasets for least-angle regression,
lasso and stepwise regression.
● The bigrf package provides a Random Forests implementation with support for parellel execution and large memory.
● The MonetDB.R package allows R to access the MonetDB column-oriented, open source database system as a backend.
