Overall Satisfaction with RStudio

We license the RStudio Connect (RSC) product from RStudio. We also use, for free, the open source packages and development environment offered by RStudio. Without going into specifics, our Connect license is about 1/6th the cost of our QlikView license, which we will discontinue once we are done porting legacy dashboards off of it. A direct comparison between Qlik and RSC is unfair. Products such as QlikView and PowerBI are BI tools which licensed users use to build dashboards. I refer to RSC as a content management platform for data science. We use it to: Validate our data and alert us to problems. Email reports to clients in PDF and Excel. Upload data to FTP servers and to send HL7 messages (via a HL7 engine). Hosts our internal API. Host machine learning models. Host custom-built dashboards. And, staff love developing against it.I could calculate an ROI for everything, except staff satisfaction. But the value add is there and it is valuable.
  • Deliver data/insights to customers
  • Multi-language (R, Python)
  • Empower staff
  • The name causes people to incorrectly think it is an R-focused product. It isn't.
  • We will save money replacing legacy dashboard tools.
RStudio is more than a home for a dashboard. It is a content management system for data science. It hosts models, APIs, runs scripts, AND hosts dashboards.
Polite, knowledgeable, and have answered all our questions.
Empower your data scientists and they will empower your clients.
We use RStudio Connect to deliver our data science products to our clients.
