5
What is R?
6
R is a free, open-
source statistical
language
R allows you to
perform
sophisticated
statistical
analysis and
predictive
analytics
This includes:
• linear and
nonlinear
modeling
• statistical tests
• time-series
analysis
• classification
What is R?
7
R uses a
command line
interface primarily
However, many
GUI based
applications are
available for
download
With R, users can
create variables,
formulas, functions
and graphs to
visualize their
analysis and
predictions
• Before attempting Power BI integration, it is helpful to have a
working proficiency with R
• Terms such as data frame, working with the command line and
understanding the R environment are key success factors
• A good starting point is the R Project at www.r-project.org
• Additional resources available at the end of this presentation
Basic knowledge of R
8
• The R data frame function, data.frame, is the foundation for
storing data within R
• Similar to pandas in Python
• Stores Power BI data in a schema for access
Basic knowledge of R
9
• R provides a powerful way to do statistical analysis on large sets
of data
• Because it is also free, this is a compelling factor to its growth
• As an open-source product, new functions and packages are
created all the time
• If you can’t find a capability initially, you can search for a package
that can do it or even create a package of your own
Benefits of using R
10
• Using R in conjunction with Power BI can help with creating
visualizations, cleansing data and get around limitations in
Power BI
• A big advantage of using R is to connect to data sources not
directly supported in Power BI currently
• With R packages, analytics not directly built into Power BI can
be leveraged as well
Why R with Power BI?
11
• Installations available for Windows, Linux and Mac
• Many Linux distributions already include R in their package
management tools
• At a minimum, the command line interface is needed
• Additional 3rd party tools are available to add a graphical front
end to R
• Main download site: http://cran.r-project.org
Installing R
12
Data creation
R scripts can be used to either hard code data frames or a
connection script can be created to use existing data sources.
13
To create visualizations with R, a placeholder is added to the
screen and the script editor window appears.
R visualizations
14
As you select fields, Power BI automatically adds them to header
code which must be included in all scripts.
R visualizations
15
The R script showcase on the Power BI community is a good
starting point.
R visualizations
16
Data manipulation
• Scripts can be used in Power Query Editor
• Data can be shaped in multiple ways:
• completion of missing data
• pivoting data
• column and row removal
• predictions
• clustering
17

Creating data
Building a visualization
Transforming data
Power BI & R summary
Using R in Power BI allows for:
• New and exciting visualizations
• Access to more data sources and complex data connections
• Cleansing and manipulation of data
• Re-use of existing code and leveraging in place technology
19
R versus Python
Which should you choose??
• A matter of which language is already in use in your organization
• R provides more statistical packages as a standard
• Python tends to have a lower entry learning curve
• Both have excellent communities with tons of examples

  • 7. What is R? 7 R uses a command line interface primarily However, many GUI based applications are available for download With R, users can create variables, formulas, functions and graphs to visualize their analysis and predictions
  • 8. • Before attempting Power BI integration, it is helpful to have a working proficiency with R • Terms such as data frame, working with the command line and understanding the R environment are key success factors • A good starting point is the R Project at www.r-project.org • Additional resources available at the end of this presentation Basic knowledge of R 8
  • 9. • The R data frame function, data.frame, is the foundation for storing data within R • Similar to pandas in Python • Stores Power BI data in a schema for access Basic knowledge of R 9
  • 10. • R provides a powerful way to do statistical analysis on large sets of data • Because it is also free, this is a compelling factor to its growth • As an open-source product, new functions and packages are created all the time • If you can’t find a capability initially, you can search for a package that can do it or even create a package of your own Benefits of using R 10
  • 11. • Using R in conjunction with Power BI can help with creating visualizations, cleansing data and get around limitations in Power BI • A big advantage of using R is to connect to data sources not directly supported in Power BI currently • With R packages, analytics not directly built into Power BI can be leveraged as well Why R with Power BI? 11
  • 12. • Installations available for Windows, Linux and Mac • Many Linux distributions already include R in their package management tools • At a minimum, the command line interface is needed • Additional 3rd party tools are available to add a graphical front end to R • Main download site: http://cran.r-project.org Installing R 12
  • 13. Data creation R scripts can be used to either hard code data frames or a connection script can be created to use existing data sources. 13
  • 14. To create visualizations with R, a placeholder is added to the screen and the script editor window appears. R visualizations 14
  • 15. As you select fields, Power BI automatically adds them to header code which must be included in all scripts. R visualizations 15

  4. Data is everywhere and you can create a quick Tableau Dashboard using just about anything. But the old garbage in garbage out principal often applies…. And end of the day the data behind your dashboards needs to be accurate, informational and up to date. ???
