The ability to interpret and act on the massive amounts of information locked in web and enterprise systems is critical to success in the modern business economy.

The book begins by introducing the R language, and then moves on to various examples illustrating R’s features. Coverage includes data mining methodologies, approaches to messy data, R’s extensive graphical environment, useful add-on modules, and how to interface R with other software platforms and data management systems.
