Need help setting up a data analyst department??
scooby09 1 year ago
Hi I have recently been assigned to setup and manage a data analyst/mining department. I need help as to how to go about this, what tools to integrate, first steps to take, etc. I am assuming Hadoop and R would be best tools but how steep are these learning curves? Is it easy to find potential employees who have experience with these tools? Any help would be beneficial. Thanks in advance
