Cluster Analysis with R and SAS Training Course


R is a programming language and software environment for statistical computing. SAS is a statistical software platform for predictive analysis, data management, advanced analytics, and more. With R in SAS, users can find natural groups of data for cluster analysis that are essential to data mining.

This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at data analysts who wish to program with R in SAS for cluster analysis.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Use cluster analysis for data mining
  • Master R syntax for clustering solutions.
  • Implement hierarchical and non-hierarchical clustering.
  • Make data-driven decisions to help to improve business operations.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
