Revolution Analytics (formerly REvolution Computing) was founded in 2007 to foster the R Community, as well as support the growing needs of commercial users. Its name derives from combining the letter "R" with the word "evolution." It speaks to the ongoing development of the R language from an open-source academic research tool into commercial applications for industrial use.
Though its Revolution R products, the company aims to make the power of predictive analytics accessible to every type of user & budget. They provide free and premium software and services that bring high-performance, productivity and ease-of-use to R -- enabling statisticians and scientists to derive greater meaning from large sets of critical data in record time.
