RStudio

If you've got a bit of Linux skills in your organisation, and if you have the money to pay for RStudio Connect (or RStudio Workbench on the development side) then I think RStudio is definitely a sound investment. If you don't have Linux skills, or your analysts are not sufficiently advanced in R to need to deploy stuff running live (and are just emailing stuff around, basically) then you're probably not ready yet.

Mathematica

We are the judgement that Wolfram Mathematica is despite many critics based on the paradigms selected a mark in the fields of the markets for computations of all kind. Wolfram Mathematica is even a choice in fields where other bolide systems reign most of the market. Wolfram Mathematica offers rich flexibility and internally standardizes the right methodologies for his user community. Wolfram Mathematica is not cheap and in need of a hard an long learner journey. That makes it weak in comparison with of-the-shelf-solution packages or even other programming languages. But for systematization of methods Wolfram Mathematica is far in front of almost all the other. Scientist and interested people are able to develop themself further and Wolfram Matheamatica users are a human variant for themself. The reach out for modern mathematics based science is deep and a unique unified framework makes the whole field of mathematics accessable comparable to the brain of Albert Einstein. The paradigms incorporated are the most efficients and consist in assembly on the market. The mathematics is covering and fullfills not just education requirements but the demands and needs of experts.
Mathematica is incompatible with other systems for mCAx and therefore the borders between the systems are hard to overcome. Wolfram Mathematica should be consider one of the more open systems because other code can be imported and run but on the export side it is rathe incompatible by design purposes. A better standard for all that might solve the crisis but there is none in sight. Selection of knowledge of what works will be in the future even more focussed and general system might be one the lossy side. Knowledge of esthetics of what will be in the highest demand in necessary and Wolfram is not a leader in this field of science. Mathematics leves from gathering problems from application fields and less from the glory of itself and the formalization of this.

Pros

RStudio

  • Excellent integration of both R and Python IDEs in one.
  • Simple publishing of dashboards and applications from RStudio IDE to RStudio Connect.
  • Integration of package management with projects to support collaboration.
  • Excellent contributors to the R Open Source community, really invested in its health.
  • Support integration with Enterprise AD environments for security.
B. Mark Ewing | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mathematica

  • It allows straightforward integration of analytic analysis of algebraic expressions and their numerical implemented.
  • Supports varying programmatic paradigms, so one can choose what best fits the problem or task: pure functions, procedural programming, list processing, and even (with a bit of setup) object-oriented programming.
  • The extensive and rich tools for graphical rendering make it very easy to not just get 2D and 3D renderings of final output, but also to do quick-and-dirty 2D and 3D rendering of intermediate results and/or debugging results.
Robert J. Lang | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

RStudio

  • Management of some deeper aspects of the platform is not a so straight-forward, especially when it comes to deal to customization (connections, packages management...).
  • Administration console may be a bit richer, making available of some operations that you may be interested on doing by user interface and not by shell.
  • Deploying apps is still a bit problematic for some particular (rare!) packages, make it easier to install packages not from the CRAN.
Flavio Leccese | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mathematica

  • Should include more libraries and functions.
  • Should include more functions that can be used in Machine Learning.
  • Should include more functions that can be used in Data Science.

There is no viable alternative right now. The toolset is good and the functionality is increasing with every release. It is backed by regular releases and ongoing development by the RStudio team.There is good engagement with RStudio directly when support is required.Also there's a strong and growing community of developers who provide additional support and sample code.

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.

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.

Wolfram Mathematica is a nice software package. It has very nice features and easy to install and use in your machine. Besides this, there is a nice support from Wolfram. They come to the university frequently to give seminars in Mathematica. I think this is the best thing they are doing. That is very helpful for graduate and undergraduate students who are using Mathematica in their research.

Alternatives Considered

RStudio

Before implementing RStudio, our team struggling with coding in R. We tried to implement Visual Studio and Jupyter as alternatives to RStudio. But Jupyter was found to be not user friendly for our end-user and Visual Studio enterprise was not that great. We have not evaluated any other products available.

Mathematica

We have evaluated and are using in some cases the Python language in concert with the Jupyter notebook interface. For UI, we using libraries like React to create visually stunning visualizations of such models.Mathematica compares favorably to this alternative in terms of speed of development. Mathematica compares unfavorably to this alternative in terms of license costs.

Return on Investment

RStudio

  • RStudio has allowed us to rapidly build and deploy functional Shiny applications that execute underlying code. In many cases, users don't realize they are running R under the hood.
  • Allowed us to integrate Python code and R code in a single application/visualization.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mathematica

  • Easy to solve huge mathematical equations, so it saved time there
  • Doing analysis and plotting graphs is also another plus point
  • Learning is very slow, and it took lot of time to learn its scripting language
