Working on Big Data Using R

Organizations today are gathering and storing massive amounts of granular data about their processes and customers, mainly owing to low storage costs. The hope being that firms can identify useful information and extract value through superior analysis. Effective data management and visualization are vital steps to achieve these objectives.

This workshop will provide hands-on exposure to conducting data management and visualization activities on extensive real-world datasets in R/RStudio. Data management includes operations such as reading, cleaning, merging datasets, and handling missing observations.  Visualization will include plotting graphics such as histograms, barplot, boxplots, and scatter plots. Data and code files will be shared with the participants before the commencement of the workshop.
