Python: Big Data's secret power tool

Python: Big Data's secret power tool | technical collection | Scoop.it
When it comes to analyzing Big Data, software packages such as Hadoop or the R statistical language come readily to mind. But at least one company, AppNexus, also relies on the Python programming language to help conduct heavy-duty data analysis.

Python provides employees with different backgrounds -- notably engineers, mathematicians and analysts -- a common, easy-to-understand language that can be used to prototype new functionality for the company. In addition, Python libraries such as SciPy, iPython and Pandas provide much of the mathematical functionality typically found in the R programming language.
