RStudio Connect is a new publishing platform for all the work your teams do in R. It provides a single destination for your Shiny applications, R Markdown documents, interactive HTML widgets, static plots, and more.
RStudio Connect isn’t just for R users. Now anyone can interact with custom built analytical data products developed by R users without having to program in R themselves. Team members can receive updated reports built on the same models/forecasts which can be configured to be rebuilt and distributed on a scheduled basis. RStudio Connect is designed to bring the power of data science to your entire enterprise.
RStudio Connect empowers analysts to share and manage the content they’ve created in R. Users of the RStudio IDE can publish content to RStudio Connect with the click of a button and immediately be able to manage that content from a user-friendly web application: setting access controls and performance settings and viewing the logs of the associated R processes on the server.
RStudio Connect is on-premises software that you can install on a server behind your firewall ensuring that your data and R applications never have to leave your organization’s control. We integrate with many enterprise authentication platform including LDAP/Active Directory, Google OAuth, PAM, and proxied authentication. We also provide an option to use an internal username/password system complete with user self-sign-up.
RStudio Connect has been in Beta for almost a year. The product team had hundreds of customers validate in Beta. In November, they made RStudio Connect generally available without significant fanfare and began to work with Beta participants and existing RStudio customers eager to move it into their production environments.
