Overall Satisfaction with RStudio

Our main use is with RSC for deployment of Shiny dashboards and Rmarkdown reports. It used to communicate our work with both internal and external teams across the whole organization and company leadership. We help to optimize cost with the use of statistical tools (descriptive and predictive analysis, data visualization, etc.).
  • Easy to deploy and share with other teams.
  • RStudio support.
  • Ability to incorporate open source tools.
  • Ability to scale across the company is limited based on the users license, cannot share a dashboard to the general view of the company.
  • Ability to retain session - not simple method to customize view per user (e.g., once session is ended, the users will return next time to the baseline view).
  • Ability to enable communication between multiple users - leave notes, tag other users, or share specific view.
  • Cannot quantify this value, but I can say that it provides our team great value to communicate our results and put a mirror for the data for none technical team.
The main comparison for RSC is Plotly Dash.

RSC Pros:
  • Native for R users.
  • Easy to customize.
  • Easy to deploy dashboard and share with none R users.

RSC cons:
  • Not scalable solution, sharing restricted to users license.
  • Does not support K8/docker deployment.
RSC is a great solution for sharing and communicate our analysis in R with not technical users within our team and external teams we are providing services. If a team has the devop support to deploy this solution it is great data scientist team.

I see the limitation of RSC when needed to scale it. The requirement for the each viewer to have RSC user license, limit our ability to scale our team deliveries across the company.
