PivotalR (

A Fast, Easy-to-Use Tool for Manipulating Tables in Databases and a Wrapper of MADlib.


Provides an R interface for the Pivotal Data stack running on 'PostgreSQL', 'Greenplum' or 'Apache HAWQ (incubating)' databases with parallel and distributed computation ability for big data processing. 'PivotalR' provides an R interface to various database operations on tables or views. These operations are almost the same as the corresponding native R operations. Thus users of R do not need to learn 'SQL' when they operate on objects in the database. It also provides a wrapper for 'Apache MADlib (incubating)', which is an open- source library for parallel and scalable in-database analytics.
