The exponential growth of volume and variety of data generated today present unprecedented challenges as well as opportunities for organisations. Companies are now relying on technologies like text analysis and Natural Language Processing and text analysis for making sense of such massively collected data.
R and Python, both are used for data analysis. R can be integrated with many programming languages, such as, C, C++, Java, etc. If the data that you have to analyze has heavy statistical variables, equations, and graphics, R is the language to rely upon.
