Overall Satisfaction with RStudio

We use RStudio for development within bioinformatics group. The product (R Shiny) from our group is used across the whole organization, it is used for data integration, both clinical and pre-clinical biomarker data and other types of data integration.
  • Best IDE for R programming.
  • Good ecosystem for R Markdown and R Shiny.
  • RStudio Connect is very useful for publishing and user authentication.
  • It could have its own consulting team to support company to build R related products instead of partnering.
  • It could also offer tailored paid training for small and large companies.
  • It brings transparency of data across the whole organization and harnesses the power of open source.
  • No negative impact.
RStudio is code based, so in the beginning tools like Spotfire and Tableau have thier advantages since many things are already built in, but in terms of flexibility RStudio will win over the longer term.

The cost of RStudio and RStudio Connect is very reasonable [for a] small company.
RStudio is definitely the best for coding in R. It significantly enhances the efficiency and shortens the development cycle.

I do sometimes find RStudio to get stuck and slow when the code became long, so that is a place for enhancement.

Using RStudio

60 - Bioinformatics function in biotech company
4 - Need R coding skills and basic IT knowledges.

My team has background spanning from bioinformatics, biology, statistics background.
  • Data integration
  • Data review and checking
  • Data analyses
  • Building up surveys
  • Integrate data across functions
  • Access control the data for partners
  • Use it to integrate more types of data
  • Automating reports generation
Rstudio is really a great tool to support open source development and has much better flexibility compared with other commercial tools such as Spotfire or Tableau

Configuring RStudio

I have tried rstudio desktop, rstudio server, rstudio connect

All three are easy to install on window and linux.
Yes - we have customized the interface extensively - UI is important for programming and efficiency
Mutli-panel for code display is very helpful
No - we have not done any custom code
