Big data yes, dark data perhaps but small data – really? Small data is high value data which is often the key numbers or performance indicators that are used by senior management to guide the business. It has been collected at great effort and expense but usually supplied in format that is not conducive to analysis, reporting or visualisation. Using a few examples based on real life case studies you’ll see how R can transform and clean this data.
Join Mark for a practical session with examples of R code. So if the veracity, variety and value of data are more important aspects than volume and velocity then this talk is for you.
