Data Science Workbench

Organizations which already implemented on-premise Hadoop based Cloudera Data Platform (CDH) for their Big Data warehouse architecture will definitely get more value from seamless integration of Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW) with their existing CDH Platform. However, for organizations with hybrid (cloud and on-premise) data platform without prior implementation of CDH, implementing CDSW can be a challenge technically and financially.

RStudio

RStudio is great at reproducible research, data visualization, dashboard and REST API, and build predictive models.R is single-threaded, so it may not be suitable when you need to scale your application to many users. For example, if you have a shiny app with R, the performance may slow down when multiple users are in the app. People are addressing this issue in several ways, however, so this may not be a deal-breaker.

Pros

Data Science Workbench

  • One single IDE (browser based application) that makes Scala, R, Python integrated under one tool
  • For larger organizations/teams, it lets you be self reliant
  • As it sits on your cluster, it has very easy access of all the data on the HDFS
  • Linking with Github is a very good way to keep the code versions intact

RStudio

  • 1: RStudio is a great tool for organizing your R code - coding, executing and seeing the results on the same page!
  • 2: RStudio (and R in general) is great because it is an open source tool! So it receives new packages and updates constantly. It's also one of the most used analytics tools, so you are likely to find all of the models you need here!
  • 3: Did I mention it is free? This is great if your IT department (or company) has budget constraints.

Cons

Data Science Workbench

  • Installation is difficult.
  • Upgrades are difficult.
  • Licensing options are not flexible.

RStudio

  • RStudio Connect could really benefit from containerized environments to enable isolated, reproducible content.
  • RStudio Connect's pricing model is a little frustrating at times. Infrequent consumers of content cost the same as heavy users who publish content regularly. This limits our ability to share the work of our data scientists at a reasonable cost. We would much rather pay more for each "publisher" seat and have much cheaper or free "viewer" seats. This would also likely lead to a greater investment in RStudio Connect on our part, as we would be able to expose the platform to more team members and key funding decision makers.

Rstudio is my go - to language for anything involving analysis. It has far more capabilities for data analysis than Python (in my opinion). New packages for novel analytical techniques are often published. Rstudio continues to implement great updates every few months as well. Finally, I really like that I can write LateX documents in Rstudio and integrate R code into them.

I think it's a quick and easy to use tool. The IDE is very intuitive and easy to adapt to. You do not need to learn a lot of things to use this tool. Any programmer and a person with knowledge or R can quick use this tool without issues.

Cloudera Data Science Workbench has excellence online resources support such as documentation and examples. On top of that the enterprise license also comes with SLA on opening a ticket to Cloudera Services and support for complaint handling and troubleshooting by email or through a phone call. On top of that it also offers additional paid training services.

Since R is trendy among statisticians, you can find lots of help from the data science/ stats communities. If you need help with anything related to RStudio or R, google it or search on StackOverflow, you might easily find the solution that you are looking for.

Alternatives Considered

Data Science Workbench

Both the tools have similar features and have made it pretty easy to install/deploy/use. Depending on your existing platform (Cloudera vs. Azure) you need to pick the Workbench. Another observation is that Cloudera has better support where you can get feedback on your questions pretty fast (unlike MS). As its a new product, I expect MS to be more efficient in handling customers questions.

RStudio

Compared to Power BI, it is easier to create custom analysis and visualizations in RStudio. In terms of enterprise integration, it seems so far that Power BI is easier because of its tighter integration with our Microsoft suite of tools and services.

Return on Investment

Data Science Workbench

  • Paid off for demonstration purposes.

RStudio

  • RStudio is open-source and free. Any organisations would love to use it as long as it can meet their objectives.
  • RStudio community is growing with each passing year. If it's promoted by the organisation and training and other support can be offered to tempt analysts to switch to RTStudio, huge costs savings can be made in the future.
