What is RStudio?

RStudio is a modular data science platform, combining open source and commercial products.

The vendor states their open source offerings, such as the RStudio IDE, Shiny, rmarkdown and the many packages in the tidyverse, are used by millions of data scientists around the world to enhance the production and consumption of knowledge by everyone, regardless of economic means.

Their commercial software products, including RStudio Workbench, RStudio Connect, and RStudio Package Manager, are available as a bundle in RStudio Team. These products aim to give organizations the confidence to adopt R, Python and other open-source data science software at scale. This enables data science teams using R and Python to deliver interactive reports and applications to decision makers, leverage large amounts of data, integrate with existing enterprise systems, platforms, and processes, and be compliant with security practices and standards.

The platform is complemented by online services, including RStudio Cloud and shinyapps.io, to make it easier to do, teach and learn data science, and share data science insights with others, over the web.

Together, RStudio’s open-source software and commercial software form a virtuous cycle: The adoption of open-source data science software at scale in organizations creates demand for RStudio’s commercial software; and the revenue from commercial software, in turn, enables deeper investment in the open-source software that benefits everyone.

We use RStudio as an analysis tool to perform complex data analysis problems and scenarios. We build different statistical models to understand business data and perform forecasts. It has good visualizations and is a very flexible tool. As Business Analyst it is a good tool to understand big data in the organization.

We use RStudio to build data science and machine learning pipelines for AI models. The pipeline that we create on R studio help in end-to-end data processing, cleaning, RDA, model training, and prediction. The scripts that we write on RStudio are also used for automation and creating machine learning tools using R shiny as well.

I have used the R language since around 2010 and before (along with S-Plus). RStudio as soon as it was available, also around 2010. Example use cases: 1. bionanoengineering - descriptive statistics (describing biological motility or nano surfaces), in parallel with image analysis in ImageJ and MATLAB; 2. bioinformatics - producing descriptive statistics for the motility of Neurospora crassa (filamentous fungus) to prove that how one use statistics matters and how it impacts business decisions; 3. pharma - benefit-risk analysis and data visualizations along with Spotfire 4. healthcare - clinical programming along with Stata and Python (one suggestion: it would be nice to have R interface in Stata and improved R interface in Spotfire); 5 - in product development for creating data monitoring & evaluation apps in RShiny. RStudio has been with me since the very beginning of my professional career. I could easily write up a Ph.D. on the use cases of R in life sciences, pharma, healthcare, and computer science. I would highly recommend RStudio for those who need to deliver fast tailored, customized applications, attractive visualizations or need to use Bayesian statistics, for example, to validate pharmacovigilance scores.

RStudio provides the IDE to be more productive with Python and R. It has a console, a syntax highlighter that supports direct code execution. And it has various tools for viewing history, debugging, and managing the workspace. RStudio Desktop is Free having integrated tools for R and in order to use advanced features then need to purchase the upgraded versions.

We license the RStudio Connect (RSC) product from RStudio. We also use, for free, the open source packages and development environment offered by RStudio. Without going into specifics, our Connect license is about 1/6th the cost of our QlikView license, which we will discontinue once we are done porting legacy dashboards off of it. A direct comparison between Qlik and RSC is unfair. Products such as QlikView and PowerBI are BI tools which licensed users use to build dashboards. I refer to RSC as a content management platform for data science. We use it to: Validate our data and alert us to problems. Email reports to clients in PDF and Excel. Upload data to FTP servers and to send HL7 messages (via a HL7 engine). Hosts our internal API. Host machine learning models. Host custom-built dashboards. And, staff love developing against it.I could calculate an ROI for everything, except staff satisfaction. But the value add is there and it is valuable.

RStudio is used in my organization to build machine learning models, such as linear regression, logistic regression, decision trees, random forest, k-mean clustering, and more. It solves our business problem of having a low-cost, open-source tool for building statistical models and running models for data analysis. We can also use this for data visualization and data cleaning.

RStudio is used as a supporting program for graduate-level courses, such as Experimental Research Methods. It helps students understand how to clean, analyze, and visualize quantitative data. The scope of my use case is 10-week courses that have used RStudio in different ways, i.e., information visualization and data transformation.

We are using RStudio for quick querying, reading, and writing tables on the backend for the sole purpose of product analytics. RStudio is the go-to interface, and with easy installation of ODBC drivers on Windows machines, it provides great utility to connect to the Amazon Redshift database. It is an important piece in our analytics framework, as the custom tables created through this interface are used for visualizations on other software.

R is primarily used as a data cleaning tool (in our team) which is agnostic to user machines, thus creating a repeatable workflow. Earlier, we used both Power Query and Alteryx for it. Power Query used to take a lot of time, and Alteryx turned out to be a pretty expensive affair. For our reporting purpose, we had to collate many files, and after doing some manipulation by removing duplicates and other process-related activities, we had to create some metrics. All were done in RStudio, and then the output is used to upload in DWH.

Currently, we use RStudio within our group as the primary way to interact with R and particularly R scripts for automated analysis of large datasets. We've also used RStudio to develop Shiny GUIs to provide a user-friendly interface for these R scripts for others in our organization that may be less familiar with running scripts in RStudio.

We are using RStudio to develop shiny web applications and develop predictive data models. We perform statistical analysis on the data and try to gain insights from it.

With the shiny apps, we are automating routine excel reports which saves a lot of time for database and business analysts.

We have written numerous algorithms in RStudio like Naive Bayesian Classification, K-Means Clustering and ARIMA modelling.

RStudio is an amazing platform for statistical data analysis.

I have extensively used RStudio, when I was seconded to the Department of Health in Victoria to assist with the surge in COVID19 Delta response. In my day to day, I used R mostly for Descriptive and Graphical analysis and data management. Most of the analysis is used to provide insights to reduce road trauma and promote road safety.

My team uses RStudio products, but we distribute reports and dashboards to 100+ users. The business problem it addresses is how to get the data science work that we're doing in R and Python (for example, text mining), as well as more day-to-day reporting based on some of the data structures that we have written in R/SQL.

RStudio is currently used to analyze data. It makes using R much easier for us researchers and allows us to test our hypotheses. It is used by researchers across the department to do quantitative analyses using data we have collected. We use it for social network analyses that include friendship nominations.

We use RStudio for statistics-related endeavors on our research projects. We use it frequently for accessing and analyzing our data in descriptive and predictive type analyses. It helps us address issues such as underperformance in schools and other education settings, or even issues of inequity and exclusion of vulnerable populations.

Our internal analytical platform is deeply connected with a series of RStudio products, from RStudio Connect to RSPM. These products provide not only great development environment, but they also create the excellent user experience for customers. Importantly, the RStudio support team is very responsive. The team takes customer's request very seriously, and if there is no immediate solution, they usually follow up with a long-term plan. Shout out to our main contact Colin.

I use RStudio to produce descriptive and predictive analytics surrounding various business products. My analytics help higher-ups understand the efficiencies and problem areas in business processes and make evidence-based decisions. The data visualizations I generate in [RStudio] are especially instrumental in presenting accurate, easily consumable metrics for lay audiences.

I am working with an Australian supermarket giant and helping them analyze data for their e-commerce business. RStudio helps me in getting the raw data from various sources and cleaning them up so that they can be aggregated and visualized in a BI tool for insight generation to improve the business performance.

I currently use RStudio to create and develop 3D maps for ground-mounted solar arrays to better account for the terrain where they will be placed. It is also used for statistical analysis within the company to determine where the best placement for the solar arrays will be within the topography.

RStudio is the only way in which I interact with R. We're primarily a SQL-driven team but sometimes you need a tool that's a little more powerful; enter R. When I need this added firepower, RStudio is where I always go. There aren't any second thoughts. I'm primarily a fan of the UI shortcuts that make interacting with my local directory and managing my packages a breeze.
