The Linux Foundation announces
the R Consortium
to support R users globally.
The R Consortium works with and provides support to the R Foundation and other organizations developing, maintaining and distributing R software and provides a unifying framework for the R user community.
“Data science is pushing the boundaries of what is possible in business, science, and technology, where the R language and ecosystem is a major enabling force,” said Neil Mendelson, Vice President, Big Data and Advanced Analytics, Oracle “The R Consortium is an important enabling body to support and help grow the R user community, which increasingly includes enterprise data scientists.”
R is a key enabling technology for data science as evidenced by its dramatic rise in adoption
over the past several years. We look forward to contributing to R's continued success through the R Consortium.
