We’re entering a golden age of the “analytics developer.” Cutting edge companies like AirBnB, Apple, and S&P are no longer buying off-the-shelf BI software. Instead, they build their own targeted BI platforms that succeed where traditional Big BI falls flat: Agility, collaboration, browser experience, and web-based data visualization. If your company strives to change the world and break ahead of competition, it’s unlikely that canned, off-the-shelf BI software will give you an edge.
With tools like Shiny (for R) or Dash (for Python), plus a flourishing ecosystem of online data viz, it has never been easier to rapidly deploy rich analytic web apps.
You too can be an analytics developer! 3 analytics developer master classes are coming up in NYC, November 16-17:
DASH MASTER CLASS
Learn to build rich analytic apps in Python with only a few hundred lines of code.
PLOTLY.JS MASTER CLASS
R/SHINY MASTER CLASS
Learn to build online “stats apps” in R that have rich, interactive controls and data visualization.
