Kdb+ Interface to R

2 Aug 2017 | , , , , ,

Kx recently introduced an updated interface to R from kdb+. R is a development environment commonly used for data analysis and visualizing data. When interfacing R with kdb+ we can think of kdb+ as a database behind R which can be used to store huge amounts of data, and we can easily extract this data using the language q. In this blog, Kx engineer Louise Totten demonstrates how to utilize the strengths of both R and kdb+/q to perform statistical analyses using real world examples.
