Overall Satisfaction with RStudio

I have used RStudio for various data analysis at my company from data cleaning to data visualization and model selection. The entire organization widely uses RStudio. RStudio helps in ad-hoc analysis and enables users to run line by line and easily create R markdown files as well as a shiny app.

Pros

  • Stats best tool
  • Easy exploration data analysis

Cons

  • Package building
  • Package version selection
  • Free tool
  • Interactive visualization
Rstudio itself is very close to PyCharm but due to the R language and the package building system. What is more, object-oriented programming is more widely adopted in python rather than R, and deep learning packages are more available in python. The language is losing popularity at this time.
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.

Did implementation of Posit go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Posit again?

Yes

RStudio is the IDE to use R. RSudio includes the benefits to use R and also the shortfall of R. For example, RStudio is straightforward to use for stats intensive analysis with the support of plenty packages such as TidyVerse, BMS, etc. However, the version control of R is not as good as python.
