We now officially provide support services for existing Shiny applications, Plumber APIs, and RStudio infrastructure. Further, we now provide Managed Services for the R environment. This means that we can handle ongoing support for your servers and infrastructure to keep applications running smoothly. If you are interested in learning more about these services, please reach out!
This partnership solidifies our position as one of the leaders in the R/Shiny space. Building advanced Decision Support Systems has been a part of our path since we started.
RStudio Full Service Certified Partners resell RStudio professional products and employ RStudio certified R administrators and/or R user instructors who offer training, implementation, management, and development services that help customers succeed with R and RStudio.
This is a natural step for us, as we have been R evangelists since the first days of our company. We have even worked side by side with RStudio on many occasions with different clients.
We also share values with RStudio — a passion for community, open source, and empowering data scientists and companies everywhere. We both love to conference and share what we’ve learned in our day to day work. The broader community benefits from this cooperation as well — our open source packages have been downloaded over 39,000 times and are praised by companies like Viacom and BCG.
Becoming a certified partner with RStudio fortifies the communication between our companies so that we can better serve our clients and help them with every step of the RStudio product implementation process. Some RStudio products that we can help you with include:
RStudio Connect is a publishing platform that will boost your R workflow with a click of a button. Publish your Shiny applications, R Markdown reports & dashboards, Plumber APIs, Python notebooks, and more in one convenient IT-managed location. Periodic reports can be scheduled with just several clicks.
RStudio Package Manager is a repository management server optimized for R and RStudio. It allows you to organize, search, and browse R packages within your team and across your organization. Access all of CRAN or define curated subsets. Add your local packages and packages from Github. Control and manage all of the packages that your data scientists and data products depend on.
Shiny Server Pro is intended for projects requiring pure Shiny work. This is a field tested solution which can be readily scaled up and down. Shiny Server Pro doesn’t have all the features that you get with Connect, but if your use case doesn’t require RStudio Connect, then Shiny Server Pro might be a more economical solution. As with all other R products, we are happy to help with Shiny Server Pro.
Moving forward, we will continue to develop R Shiny applications for the data science and business communities alongside our new Partner. This will translate into a new, higher level of quality for our clients. Now, we can not only advise on solutions but also optimize their license and maintenance costs.
As you might know, we build decision support systems for enterprise and other types of organizations, such as the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). We recently built a Shiny dashboard that will help IIASA understand and visualize natural disaster risk in Madagascar. Last year we also built R Shiny projects for Fortune 500 companies (including companies in the pharmaceutical, insurance, and logistics industries) and for universities and educational organizations (natural language processing). We intend to continue these endeavors in the future.
Plus we are happy to continue to offer services associated with setting up a production environment and a set of post-implementation support options such as development support, hosting, and administration services.
I am very excited about our collaboration with the RStudio team, and we look forward to fruitful cooperation in the future!
We hope to see you at rstudio::conf in San Francisco on January 27. Please drop by the Appsilon Data Science booth in the Yosemite Room and say hello. Damian Rodziewicz is giving a presentation “Building a native iPad dashboard using plumber and RStudio Connect in Pharma” (Jan. 29, 4:23pm, Room 4). He will also give an e-poster “What does it take to make a Shiny prototype ready for production?” Pedro Coutinho Silva will give an e-poster “From Front-End to Shiny development. Augmenting the power of your dashboards with modern front-end tools.”
E-posters will be shown during the opening reception on Tuesday (Jan. 28) evening from 5:30 to 7:30pm. You can also find us at the Bay Area useR Group meetup (conference tickets not required) at 6:30pm on January 27 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.
