The creators of R provided a flexible and powerful foundation for statistical computing; then made it free and open so that it could be improved collaboratively and its benefits could be shared by the widest possible audience.

It’s better for everyone if the tools used for research and science are free and open. There are many benefits to free software in science: improved reproducibility, wider sharing of knowledge and techniques, and elimination of cost barriers to create a more level playing field, to name just a few.

R users are doing some of the most innovative and important work in science, education, and industry. It’s a daily inspiration and challenge to keep up with the community and all it is accomplishing.

RStudio has a mission to provide the most widely used open source and enterprise-ready professional software for the R statistical computing environment. These tools further the cause of equipping everyone, regardless of means, to participate in a global economy that increasingly rewards data literacy.

RStudio open source and enterprise-ready, professional software combines robust and reproducible data analysis with tools to effectively share data products. Our flagship professional products RStudio Server Pro, RStudio Connect, and RStudio Package Manager equip professional data science teams to develop and share their work at scale.
