Mining data requires a deep investment in people and time. How can you be sure you're building the right models? What tools help you connect with the customer's needs? With this hands-on book, you'll learn a flexible toolset and methodology for building effective analytics applications. Agile Datashows you how to create an environment for exploring data, using lightweight tools such as Ruby, Python, Apache Pig, and the D3.js (Data-Driven Documents) JavaScript library.
