Can Data Scientists and General Analysts be Happy with the Same Software?
Many analysts lack the time or inclination to become good programmers. They prefer software that is easy to use. Data scientists emphasize analytic depth and reproducibility in their tools. With such different perspectives, can they both be happy with the same software?
BlueSky Statistics is an open-source graphical user interface to the R language. It uses menus and dialog boxes to manage data, create plots, and analyze data. By default, the R code that it writes is hidden from the user, but it can also be displayed and modified before execution.
For non-programmers, BlueSky helps them get their work done. For students of R, it helps to learn R code. For data scientists, it offers a way to convert their code into dialogs that allow more effective interaction between programmers and non-programmers within an organization.
This talk will provide a brief introduction to BlueSky, show how it interacts with R, and cover how a major academic research institution is currently migrating 2,000 users from proprietary software to open source.
