Why Revolution Analytics?

With over 2 million users and growing, the open source programming language known as "R" has emerged as the new defacto standard for computational statistics and predictive analytics. Read the Revolution Analytics' Vision White Paper

Revolution Analytics (formerly Revolution Computing) was founded in 2007 to foster the R Community, as well as support the growing needs of commercial users. Our name derives from combining the letter "R" with the word "evolution." It speaks to the ongoing development of the R language from an open-source academic research tool into commercial applications for industrial use.

Through our Revolution R products, we aim to make the power of predictive analytics accessible to every type of user & budget. We provide free and premium software and services that bring high-performance, productivity and ease-of-use to R -- enabling statisticians and scientists to derive greater meaning from large sets of critical data in record time.

For customers such as Pfizer, Novartis, Yale Cancer Center, Bank of America, Motorola, Hess and others, our flagship Revolution R Enterprise product stands for faster drug development, reduced time of data analysis, and more powerful and efficient financial models.

Revolution Analytics' executive leadership represents some of the most respected and experienced names in statistical computing and open source business--with venture funding from Intel Capital and North Bridge Venture Partners.
