R is decent for our needs but in the end didn't quite solve all of our needs so moved on. It is a good tool so far. its been a couple months since we last touched it so with changes continuing and more wide spread use and more info being published this tool will improve. Depending upon your needs this can be very easy for you to setup, use, and maintain when compared to other tools out there. My suggestion is to ensure you fully understand your use cases first with data sources identified to ensure this tool can meet your needs.

eViews is used as an alternative statistical modelling package as it is more user friendly, less scripted and has many more quick and easy data evaluation elements to it, however does not contain the flexibility and breadth of scripting and output options as widely supported as R does. eViews is mainly an academic tool and while it has a lot of flexibility to use and support is not as comprehensive as the user support channels simply aren't there.

The two are different products for different purposes. But for someone who has little or no experience in R programming, Power BI would be better for starting with. Having said that, Microsoft R is built on R, thus allowing for customization of complex calculations not typically available otherwise.

My understanding is Revolution Analytics Enterprise version is not cheap. Thus alternatives for the software could be Hadoop/HDFS level programming using Python and Mahout to achieve same distributed computing. Additionally, Cloudera is coming up with new data science tool called Oryx, which could be competitor to Rev-R. But, the tool selection at every organization would depend on the strategy and cost that is budgeted.
