Today, we are excited to announce the RStudio QuickStart, which allows you to try out RStudio Connect for free from your desktop.

The RStudio QuickStart home page

In many organizations, we find that R is already being used internally by individual data scientists and analysts for productive work on their desktops. For other organizations, R has been chosen as a standard for analytics and data science, but a process of exploration is necessary to understand what adoption of open source software looks like in the enterprise.

In all cases, we recommend users showcase our full server-side products to show how R can be useful across a team or department, rather than on a single user’s machine. Furthermore, this process integrates R into an organization’s IT practices and secures it as an analytic standard. The QuickStart is a great first step towards this objective because it is free, easy, and comes pre-populated with some of the most common workflows that we see in enterprise use of our software.

To get started with your 45-day free evaluation, visit the RStudio QuickStart page for instructions. You should download and run the QuickStart and take the product tour. Discuss on RStudio Community or Contact our sales team throughout your exploration if you have difficulties or questions about next steps!
