There’s no question that R is the fastest growing analytic language amongst data miners and data scientists. Organizations are also embracing R for business analytics to attract the new generation of analytic talent entering into the industry.

Vendors are addressing this challenge with parallel R technology and claim to “lift all limitations of R”, but no data platform will “auto-magically” scale R.
