R

There are two top tools that data scientists and analysts use, and one of them is R. Created in 1995 by Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman, this open source language is meant for data analysis and data visualizations. R has an active user community, and there are many R packages designed for applying the language to particular analytics problems. This language has attracted the attention of enterprises as well. Perhaps the best illustration of this is Microsoft's acquisition of Revolution Analytics in January 2015. The company offered a commercially supported enterprise platform around the R language.
