The Blog

The Adventures in Advanced Analytics blog is focused on topics in predictive and spatial analytics technologies that impact business organizations. A particular area of focus is on R, Spark, and emerging storage technologies such as Hadoop and Cassandra, and how they can be enhanced via the Alteryx platform.

The blog is created using the Hugo static site generator, and uses Andrei Mihu’s Hyde-X theme. The site logo was created by Tara McCoy Giovenco (many thanks Tara), who maintains the copyright, and is used with her permission.
