The basic command for that is plot(). 4. The plain vanilla plot does not look impressive. But all aspects of the basic plot can be customized by specifying the X-axis and the Y-axis, proper labeling, adjusting the size and shape of the points and using color. Other than the basic plot as shown here, there are graphics libraries which produce even more sophisticated graphics. One such group of functions, belonging to the library ggplot2, is used extensively in Chapter 4 for data visualization. 3 Screenshot of Help on R function list.

Marketing managers have been applying analytics to a certain extent for a long time. Every airline maintains a database on their loyalty customers to understand the nature of their travel pattern, differential demands and possibility of cost saving on behalf of the organization, without having major impact on travel comfort. Prime time spots on major media channels are expensive and their costs are determined by collecting and analyzing data on viewers’ preferences for various programs. Commercial organizations sending bulk emails to promote clients’ products are always analyzing click-rates and conversion-to-purchase rates depending on subject headers.

An effective business analyst needs to understand the stories spelled out in data. Whatever be her subject matter expertise, she needs to understand the analytical logic behind the recommendation made by the software because, whenever big data is involved, software is heavily depended upon to manipulate the data. Nevertheless, knowledge extraction is not merely processing and manipulation of historical data. Data is composed of observed facts and the current status of the business. Consolidation of facts leads to information gain.
