As the complexity and volume of data grows, data teams are optimizing their analytics workflows to support more complex logic, advanced transformations and customized visualizations that will be crucial in future proofing your business. There isn’t an abundance of external conversation about the languages used to analyze these massive quantities of data, but analysts and developers are becoming more sophisticated as their field matures, evolving to work with bigger datasets and integrating new techniques into their workflow. This means more than just finding new ways to innovate with SQL — advanced languages like R and Python have become a more critical part of everyday analysis and should be a centerpiece in the developers “day zero” strategy when building any technology stack. In this presentation, Leon Tchikindas, Head of Data Science & Analytics at Periscope Data, will discuss the advantages of implementing SQL vs. Python & R as part of your developer tech stack strategy and explain how to bring the workflows of all three together on one platform. To illustrate how SQL and Python work together to answer complex data questions, Leon will share real-life examples of how adopting this strategy can impact your business now and in the future.
