Overall Satisfaction with RStudio

We model economic indicators for cities in Mexico. Traffic congestion and other demographics.
  • Coordinate data wrangling with visualizations
  • Interactions with other software
  • Project management
  • Function name autofill
  • Speed
  • More and clearer detail on dashboard bugs
  • We can communicate insights in a very professional way
  • We can scale up solutions
  • We can adapt different solutions to our projects
  • We save time in order to invest it in analysis
With RStudio I can easily deploy insightful information and I can update it. Moreover, it takes minutes normally to resolve most of the new requests or to scale if needed. I have the control of my code and I can translate it into digestible reporting.
No need so far.
Because they allow me to express my ideas, translate them into insights, and modify or improve them as needed.
Updates are automatic and my collaborators know where I am in the project at any point in time.
I can share with my stakeholders the progress, alternative solutions, and display insights without having to overuse email or any other communication alternative.

RStudio Implementation

Change management was minimal
  • Deciding when to upgrade to more premium versions of products

No, I considered but it is still not cost effective for my company. We hope we can escalate next year
