Overall Satisfaction with RStudio

RStudio is used in the organization for building machine learning models based on R language as well as building user interfaces for marketing analytics using R Shiny framework. The machine learning models help understand customer needs and behaviors which drives personalization. Marketers then access this information using an intuitive user interface (based on R Shiny) to take data-driven decisions.
  • Great IDE for development.
  • Open source options allows individual users to learn and develop.
  • R Shiny is a great tool to build intuitive data applications.
  • Observing some crashes in the latest version.
  • Reduction in the effort required to bring data into action
Power BI is an easy to build visualization tool widely used in our organization to make data accessible to non-data people. This is really great tool when we want to create a dashboard for trends and track some metrics. But it become very difficult when we want to enable high level of user interactivity with the dashboard. That's where R Shiny helped us to build intuitive and highly interactive user interface.
Experience was good in terms of support. Actually a lot of the required information is available through documents and online forums which makes it easy to learn and navigate. Also, during setting up RStudio products, their team helped on time whenever required.
One of the key benefit of RStudio's open source offerings I see is that it enables a huge developers community to use / learn these products easily and share their experiences online. Hence if you are stuck somewhere while developing something, you will easily find solution through some online search.
When it comes to scaling up the outcomes from development using RStudio products, their commercial offerings makes sense. As in our case when we wanted to scale up Shiny applications to wider organization, RStudio Connect allowed us to create authenticated access to these applications as well as provided ability to manage and track usage etc.
We are currently not using RStudio's hosted offerings.
It's great IDE for someone expert in R, though some basic Python programming can be done. R Shiny is a nice framework created by RStudio which allows data experts to create an intuitive web application along with data visualizations.
