Overall Satisfaction with RStudio

RStudio is primarily used by the analytics department, creating reports, analytical dashboards, and general data analysis for the wider company. We have recently had interest within the department to use Python as well as R, and have enabled Jupyter Notebooks on our instance of RStudio Server Pro. We host all of our reports and dashboards on RStudio Connect, which is integrated with our active directory. We also have a few proprietary packages that are available on our RStudio Package Manager.
  • Amazing IDE for RStudio
  • Ability to publish dashboards with just a few clicks--little server knowledge needed
  • A lot of the DevOps are easy to understand
  • The RStudio ecosystem means we don't need a lot of other products
  • Decreased speed loss when RStudio Server is connecting to a hosted drive
  • Basic RStudio is free compared to SAS
  • Creating Shiny dashboards has made it easier to create more customization compared to Qlik or Power BI
Even with the cost of running RStudio Connect and Server Pro, it is still cheaper than SAS and more accessible due to R being open source.
It is the best IDE out there for the R programming language, and the integration of Jupyter has made it a great product for any data analytics/science team.
