RForcecom is a very useful R package that provides the connection to and from R. Using the package means you can treat the widely popular cloud-based CRM tool as a data source. In the short instructional video below, you’ll learn how to set up RForcecom, read an opportunity list from Salesforce and utilize a decision tree machine learning algorithm. Of course this demo is just the tip of the iceberg since using Salesforce as a data source leaves open many possibilities for the data scientist.
