R for SQL Server 2016

Jonathan Allen. InfoQueue 2016-02-11.
The R programming language was started in 1993 and saw its first production quality release in 2000. Since then, R has become an industry standard for statistical analysis with nearly a dozen graphical interfaces as well as packages for various IDEs and text editors.
Commercial support for R is offered by Revolution Analytics, a nine-year-old company that was recently acquired by Microsoft as part of their big data and machine learning initiatives. The result of this acquisition is support for R in the upcoming SQL Server 2016.
