A Data Science Central Community
Which technology works best in a team when we are introducing data mining. The team has been using Excel as the data analysis tool, how can we apply/ run the data mining model (such as decision tree) on excel? I have been using R for a while and enjoy it very much. Good supply of fresh grad with training in R...However, when it comes to using and running the data mining model, R does a very poor job in execution. It is such a good tool when we develop and research patterns in a laboratory where the data scientists brainstorm.
Can we run the R data mining model on Excel VBA?
I am at the verge of defecting to Python - just because it is so portable and can run by itself. It can be a good data products, but not R...
