Data Analytics with R Certification
Edureka’s Data Analytics with R training course is specially designed to provide the requisite knowledge and skills to become a successful analytics professional. It covers concepts of Data Manipulation, Exploratory Data Analysis, etc. Before moving over to the topics of this course, let’s see what is data analytics, the role of data analysts and why R is used for data analytics.
About Data Analytics
Data analytics is the science of analyzing raw data in order to make conclusions about that information. Many of the techniques and processes of data analytics have been automated into mechanical processes and algorithms that work over raw data for human consumption.
The next essential part of data analytics is advanced analytics. The collection of big data sets is instrumental in enabling these techniques. Descriptive analytics aims to answer the question “what happened?” This often involves measuring traditional indicators such as return on investment (ROI).
“You can have data without information, but you cannot have information without data.”
– Daniel Keys Moran, an American computer programmer and science fiction writer.
The availability of machine learning techniques, massive data sets, and cheap computing power has enabled the use of these techniques in many industries. This is the process of describing historical trends in data. This part of data science takes advantage of advanced tools to extract data, make predictions, and discover trends.
Role of Data Analyst
The primary goal of a data analyst is to increase efficiency and improve performance by discovering patterns in data. They combine these fields in order to help businesses and organizations succeed. Data analysts exist at the intersection of information technology, statistics, and business.
The work of a data analyst involves working with data throughout the data analysis pipeline. This means working with data in various ways. The primary steps in the data analytics process are data mining, data management, statistical analysis, and data presentation. The importance and balance of these steps depend on the data being used and the goal of the analysis. The final step in most data analytics processes is data presentation. This is an essential and mandatory step that allows insights.
About R Programming
R is a programming language and an analytics tool, and It is extensively used by Software Programmers, Statisticians, Data Scientists, and Data Miners. It is one of the most popular analytics tool used in Data Analytics and Business Analytics. It has numerous applications in domains like healthcare, academics, consulting, finance, media, and many more. Its vast applicability in Statistics, Data Visualization, and Machine Learning have given rise to the demand for certified trained professionals in R.
