R-Studio is more than an IDE

  • January 05, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Using Projects has been a game-changer in my work. It keeps me more organized and future sessions pick up where I left off, which makes me more productive and willing to close the application without "fear" of losing my place. Being able to view all my objects and variables with contextual drop-down arrows is fantastic. In addition, viewing all of my visualizations and being able to quickly flip through past visualizations is nice feature.
What do you dislike?
Sometimes, I find it difficult to select certain lines of code and run them and would like to see this workflow improved without having to run everything in the console. Moreover, copying/pasting code form the Internet, blogs, stackoverflow, can be tedious with plus signs "+" and line-breaks. It would be neat if R-Studio would provide some flavor of automated code clean-up.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I solve a variety of data science and analytically-oriented problems at work. R-Studio keeps my R code organized and makes coding in R easier and more fun.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Download it and familiarize yourself with a few keyboard shortcuts. Also checkout the R-Studio blog and various webinars to get you up-to-speed quickly.

OK for individual studies

  • December 28, 2015

What do you like best?
Relatively good IDE which comes freely with the software required to run R code. Strong open source community with lots of help resources available. Good for people who need to perform analysis individually or as part of a small 2-3 person team. Is perfectly capable of handling very complex computation and building large packages.
What do you dislike?
R-studio seems to encourage some bad code writing habits to develop, very similarly to languages like Matlab. Debugging can be more tedious than some other languages.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Machine learning and data analytics tools. Random forest regression trees, neural networks, and some basic GIS database manipulations. The principle benefit is that it CAN do all these things, though not all of them exceptionally well. I've found it is more difficult to scale these analysis to the enterprise level than with Python or Java.

I use R Studio almost everyday to clean data or run regressions for my job as a data analyst.

What do you like best?
I love how easy it is to take big data sets and clean them quickly in R. It can handle so much more than excel could, also I love that it is open source and there is always an answer on google if I am unsure how to do something.
What do you dislike?
I think sometimes R does break, I will know a code is correct and it will not work. All I have to do is restart R and magically the same code will work. Other than that I love R Studio.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I am solving our interest rate risk, as well as credit rate risk. Also predictive modeling of premiums on the secondary market. As a bank we operate much smoother now that we have an analytics team using R studio every day.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
It is an amazing product, the most important thing to me is the online support and the fact that it is open sourced. It is really a great tool for companies just starting out in analytics.

A great tool for Data Science

  • December 01, 2015

What do you like best?
One of the best feature of Rstudio is the ability to quickly add packages with a few clicks, also the fact that this software is backed by a very extensive community is extremely useful.
One will - most of the time - be able to find help on forum, stack overflow or R dedicated communities and the response time is usually within the same day.

As a data scientist being able to handle a large amount of data efficiently is key, on top of that being able to create visual representation is a must. Rstudio offers a tools that leverage the power of R into a easy to use IDE.
What do you dislike?
On the flip side one of the things that can be a little frustrating is that the documentation on certain package can be very cryptic, requiring multiple trials to understand the full depth of certain functions within a package.
In addition the error reporting is not of the most useful but considering the fact that it is a free tool it could be worse.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Credit Default Modelling, optimization problems, visualization of data using heat maps among others.
Rstudio makes certain visualization tool more accessible to people that do not have an extensive graphic design background and it also allows for the creation of Apps using their Shiny tool in a farely straightforward way for people without software development background.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Use it, it is a software worth spending time to learn.

Intuitive and easy to use for R programming

  • July 24, 2015
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
I love the bare-bones interface that is intuitive and easy to use. If you know how to use R, you also know how to use R-studio. It adds just enough to make programming with R not too hackish, but also does not add craziness like Eclipse does for example. No learning curve with R studio.
Feature wise, I love easy package search and installation and built in markdown
What do you dislike?
I think command history is clumsy, no highlighting at all and it is hard to navigate around. For example, how do i copy the command (right now you have to double click on an item, it gets pasted to a console and then you copy from there). Why? Why not to add copy on a right click when you click on an history item
Also don't like the fact that even though there is syntax highlighting in editor window, there is no highlighting in consolve (for, if etc )- It would be cool if they were highlighted as you type in
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Used free version, so I don't know about features you get when buying a license, mainly for quick data analysis, preliminary research. Benefits are speed, ease of use, no learning curve
