R You Ready for SQL Server 2016?

John Pertell, Database Administrator Dialysis Clinics Inc

Microsoft has announced General Availability of SQL Server 2016 will happen on June 1st. This session will show you this new release. We’ll cover the high-level feature set and discuss the feature differences between R is one of the fastest growing programming languages, useful for data analysis and visualization. You've been able to connect to SQL databases to work with large data sets before using R packages. But now, with the upcoming SQL 2016 release, R will be included as an Advanced Analytics Extension. You'll be able to run the same R scripts right in your database. In this beginner session we will look at how to set up R on your SQL instance. We'll work with some sample data to show how R works with SQL inside and outside the database with some basic R commands. And we'll create some graphs and charts for use in some SSRS reports.
