August 12th-14th in Seattle

A joint webinar with eoda and Covestro

This video was recorded in German, with subtitles available in English and German. You can read the English description below.

To exploit the full potential of data science, a proper IT infrastructure is needed. In most companies, developers work locally on their computers and use different versions of programs and packages. In order to pull data science into production, a central infrastructure is needed to improve collaboration and meet compliance requirements.

In this German-speaking webinar the success story of Covestro’s RStudio infrastructure will be presented. The challenge for the leading German material manufacturer was that no common development environment existed. With the help of Eoda and RStudio, a reproducible, centralized development environment for R and Python was created. This project presents a best practice approach to a data science infrastructure using Covestro as an example.

The second half of this 2-hour webinar will be a hands-on workshop that you can follow along with. The instructors will discuss how to use RStudio products with its native git integration and show you multiple approaches on how content can be deployed to RStudio Connect. This will provide your team with an excellent collaborative workflow for building, maintaining and scaling projects in a growing data science environment.

What you will learn:

  • Insights into the pain points and solutions for the data science initiatives of Covestro. What is a centralized analytics system? What tools and techniques are needed?
  • How to identify existing building blocks in your infrastructure and successfully address them. What is infrastructure as code? What is the business value for your company?
  • Exclusive insights into RStudio products. How to use the native git integration of RStudio products? How does deployment work with RStudio Connect?
