Creating and Evaluating Regression Models

Explain how to build and evaluate regression models generated from big data


  • Clustering Big Data
  • Generating regression models and making predictions

Creating and Evaluating Partitioning Models

Explain how to create and score partitioning models generated from big data.


  • Creating partitioning models based on decision trees.
  • Test partitioning models by making and comparing predictions

Processing Big Data in SQL Server and Hadoop

Explain how to transform and clean big data sets.


  • Using R in SQL Server
  • Using Hadoop Map/Reduce
  • Using Hadoop Spark

The main purpose of the course is to give students the ability to use Microsoft R Server to create and run an analysis on a large dataset, and show how to utilize it in Big Data environments, such as a Hadoop or Spark cluster, or a SQL Server database.

The primary audience for this course is people who wish to analyze large datasets within a big data environment.

The secondary audience are developers who need to integrate R analyses into their solutions.
