Webinar: Using R for Advanced Analytics with MongoDB
June 07, 2017
In the age of big data, organizations rely on data scientists to provide critical decision support and predictive analysis. Life sciences now leverages new kinds of data to innovate, address unmet medical needs, and capture new markets.
MongoDB’s flexible schema and incredible scalability makes it a natural choice for storing diverse data sets needed to accomplish these tasks. In this session, we will explore the tools and design patterns available to the data scientist to harness the power of MongoDB for data preparation and enrichment. We will also discuss R for advanced analytics utilizing MongoDB R connector for data movement.
In this webinar, we will cover:
- Design your MongoDB schema and utilize the aggregation framework for data preparation and enrichment.
- Connect R/RStudio to your MongoDB environment. Understand connectors available and be able to choose the right deployment topology for production.
- Recognize the analytical patterns and apply MongoDB and R together to deliver cutting edge insights in your organization.
- Learn to communicate the value to both technical and research audiences. Examine use cases such as genome annotation, disease spread via geospatial analysis, drug side-effects monitoring in social media using text analytics, and more.
