PivotalR

PivotalR is a package that enables users of R, the most popular open source statistical programming language and environment, to interact with the Greenplum database,  HDB/HAWQ and PostgreSQL on large data sets. It does so by providing an interface to the operations on tables/views in the database.   

It would be very valuable to add to support for more MADlib modules in PivotalR.  Please refer to this PivotalR wiki page for more information on how to do this.
