Revolutionanalytics: Microsoft SQL Server 2016 launch showcases R

Revolutionanalytics: Microsoft SQL Server 2016 launch showcases R | Statistics with R | Scoop.it
Microsoft officially launched SQL Server 2016 at the Data Driven event in New York City last week, and R featured prominently.

Revolutions | R skills attract the highest salaries in the US

Revolutions | R skills attract the highest salaries in the US | Statistics with R | Scoop.it
Two recent salary surveys have shown that R language skills attract median salaries in excess of $110,000 in the United States. In the 2014 Dice Tech Salary Survey of over 17,000 technology professionals, the highest-paid IT skill was R programming. While big-data skills in general featured strongly in the top tier, having R at the top of the list reflects the strong demand for skills to make sense of, and extract value from big data. Similarly, the recent O'Reilly Data Scientist Survey also found R skills amongst those that pay in the $110,000-$125,000 range (albeit amongst a much smaller and...
