IBM Netezza Analytics for Data Scientists - Using R and NZSQL

IBM Netezza Analytics for Data Scientists - Using R and NZSQL Course Description

Duration: 2.00 days (16 hours)

IBM Netezza Analytics provides a game-changing experience for Data Scientists by allowing data miners and quantitative analysts to leverage all the data while still achieving high performance throughout the entire modeling cycle - from data prep through exploratory data analysis through to model scoring and deployment. By leveraging the massively parallel processing architecture of an IBM Netezza Appliance, analytics can be performed in-database so that there is no superfluous data movement. This harnesses the full power of IBM Netezza Appliance and allows data miners and quantitative analysts to greatly reduce the time to build and deploy/score a model in a single environment while leveraging increasing massive data sets and shrinking the time from model concept to deployment.

This course will focus on how to effectively leverage the IBM Netezza Analytics platform to build, test and score analytic models in-database. You will learn how to leverage:

- In-Database Analytics fully scalable and parallelized in-database analytics package,
- Enterprise R, the statistical language, that runs on Netezza.
- Matrix Engine, a parallelized, linear algebra package.
